    Trying to get the plugin to output to Five Street; wondering what might be able to be done to do this? If I need to totally rewrite the output it's okay - I never plan to update this plugin.

    Format needs to be like this:

    Source: Test Source
    Name: Test Name
    Email: test@email.com
    Phone: 123-456-7890
    Address: 123 Main Street
    MLS Number: MLS12345
    Notes: These are some notes.

    Hi Draelren, have a read through the following URL.

    Kind regards

    Yes, but I don't want those fields added to my contact form. I just want it to output the field text in the code as just placeholder information.

    All I need is the name, email, phone number. The rest should just be added in the code.

    Hi are you referring to the following....

    Default as placeholder:
    Check this setting if you want the default text to be a placeholder inside the form field. The placeholder is a short hint that is displayed in the input field before the user enters a value. Works with the following input types only: name, email, subject, message, text, textarea, url, and password. This setting is sometimes used along with the "Hide label" setting.

    When using "Default as placeholder" setting with "Enable double email entry" setting enabled. The "Default" setting should be in this example format: "Email==Re-enter Email". Separate words with == separators.

    When using "Default as placeholder" setting with "First Name, Last Name" setting enabled. The "Default" setting should be in this example format: "First Name==Last Name". Separate words with == separators.

    When using "Default as placeholder" setting with "First Name, Middle Name, Last Name" setting enabled. The "Default" setting should be in this example format: "First Name==Middle Name==Last Name". Separate words with == separators.

    Regards

    No, that is not what I'm talking about. I suppose I should just ask where does the form gather the data and fill it in the email? I just need to customize that and put in extra text to make it look like this:

    Source: Test Source
    Name: Test Name
    Email: test@email.com
    Phone: 123-456-7890
    Address: 123 Main Street
    MLS Number: MLS12345
    Notes: These are some notes.

    Even though there are only three fields. I don't want the person EVER to see the other fields, in fact there are no other fields. I just want the email to send that default data along with what it gathered from the input form.

    Hi have you checked under Advanced settings tab? This is what it says

    Type your confirmation email message here, then enable it with the setting above. Listed below is an optional list of field tags for fields you can add to the confirmation email message.
    Example: to include the name of the form sender, include this tag in the confirmation email message: [from_name]
    Available field tags:
    [from_name]
    [from_email]
    [calendar]
    [attache-cv]
    [subject]
    [date_time]
    [ip_address]
    Note: If you add any extra fields, they will show up in this list of available tags. Note: The message fields are intentionally disabled to help prevent spammers from using this form to relay spam. Try to limit this feature to just using the name field to personalize the message. Do not try to use it to send a copy of what was posted.

    Is that what you are referring too?

    Regards

    No.

    On the website we have a form that just has three fields. We want to keep it EXACTLY like this on the website, and ONLY want these fields.

    There is:
    Name
    Email
    Phone

    HOWEVER, we want it to work with FiveStreet. FiveStreets requirements are very specific, and require the email to come across like this:

    Source: Test Source
    Name: Test Name
    Email: test@email.com
    Phone: 123-456-7890
    Address: 123 Main Street
    MLS Number: MLS12345
    Notes: These are some notes.

    I want to have the contact form send ALL of that info; however ONLY the name, email, and phone number will have been filled out by anyone. The other fields will have placeholders such as "Test" in them. I'm not sure how to modify the code, or even which file contains the code for retrieving the information and sending it.

    Hi you mention the following

    I understand what you mean above.

    In order to have

    FiveStreets requirements are very specific, and require the email to come across like this:

    MLS Number: MLS12345

    You need to add the following fields for the visitors to add some entries?

    Address:
    MLS Number:
    Notes:

    I am not sure how you can achieve what you want if you don't want to add the fields you mentioned above.

    Kind regards

    Well that's what I'm talking about; I want to put it in the email file just those placeholders, but I don't know where the code writes the output email, and gathers together the input. If I knew where that was I might be able to figure it out... I just need a section of the code added to the page, that fills that into the email.

    That is an answer that @Mike Challis the developer would be able to answer.

    Sorry if I cannot help you any further.

    Kind regards

    If I am understanding the requirements correctly... You would just need to create those other fields, make the type 'hidden' (as opposed to text fields), and give them the default text that you want to be emailed.

    In my experience when I've selected 'hidden' it's only hidden the text label describing what the field is asking for; not the actual text field itself being hidden.

    I just created a hidden field on my Test Form. Both the label and the input area were hidden from the form shown on the computer screen, but the Label and the Default Text were included in the email I received.

    If it doesn't work for you this way you might have a conflicting plugin.

    This is from the instructions for configuring each type of field...

    Hidden field:
    The hidden field is used if you need to pass a hidden value from the form to the email message. The hidden field does not show on the page. You must set the field name and default value.
