Following http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/45266/how-to-use-other-shortcodes-inside-contact-form-7-forms I managed to get a “Contact Form to DB Extension” shortcode work in a form. Trouble is it doesn’t work in the e-mails sent by Contact Form 7…
Can someone tell me how to get that working too?
I want to use it to generate unique ID’s in the mails, based on the date and time of submission.
Allthough Contact Form 7 has it’s own tags for getting the date and time, I don’t know how to get them to output just a string of numbers. And it’s not precise enough, since it doesn’t count seconds, so it wouldn’t be uniqueif there are two submissions within a minute..
