Support » Plugin: Formidable Forms - Form Builder for WordPress » Auto populate form fields

  • Hello,
    I use this plugin frequently and have the pro version but thought I’d put this out to the WordPress community to see if any one can help.

    I have a page listing people’s profiles. Each profile is a custom post type. Each profile listing has a link to the contact page – I want to auto populate a field on the contact form with that profile name.

    So far I have added to functions.php

    add_filter('frm_get_default_value', 'my_custom_default_value', 10, 2);
    function my_custom_default_value($new_value, $field){
      if($field->id == 167){ //change 25 to the ID of the field
        $new_value = 'default'; //stores the value of the referring URL
      return $new_value;

    This successfully brings through the word default into the form field. I’m wondering how I could put in the profile name? The profile name is actually the_title for the custom post type.

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
