[resolved] Doesn't do anything, doesn't seem to work. Help Please (3 posts)

    I love the idea behind this plugin, however, I just installed it, filled out a bunch of my website forms (using contact form 7), then went into Flamingo Inbound Messages and nothing should up. I've waited 10 minutes in case there was a server issue, but nothing ever showed up.

    Any ideas as to why this isn't working?

    Am I missing something?

    Thank you.

    What version of Contact Form 7 do you use? It needs Contact Form 7 3.2 or higher.

    You are very correct! I needed to update to the newest Contact Form 7.

    I did have some thoughts after seeing Flamingo in action. First off, it's really convenient and helpful. Thank you so much for writing this.

    1. Personally, I rarely come across anyone with a subject line anymore. Is it possible to change the Subject field in Flamingo to the name of the actual form being used? For example, I have about 13 different contact forms for various client needs, without seeing which contact form in Flamingo it is, it's very difficult to distinguish which message is what.

    2. When you go to view an actual message, is it possible for you to code in the special mail tags you have created that are so incredibly helpful? Such as IP Address and url of form?

    3. This might be asking why too much as well (just trying to help you guys improve this plugin), I wonder if it is possible to add a filter option that pulls whichever forms you currently have setup so that you can filter by contact form created. That could be a cool option as well.

    I completely understand you just came up with this and I think it's great already, but I do believe that these few tweaks could really make this more universally friendly.

    Thank you! Enjoy your week!
