grabbing current user info (2 posts)

    I am looking to make the default subscription form grab various bits of the current user info and insert it along the defined email address.

    I did write a custom subscription form which did this however it didn't return messages after submitting such as 'this email has already been registered' though I noted it was reflected in the url.

    Is there a way I can restore these messages to my custom form or alternatively grab the current user data in the default form which is generated by the [newsletter] shortcode?

    Thanks

    You subscription form must point to the subscribe.php file and this then redirect to a page where the messages are shown. I have not understood how you coded the form so it does not show the messages.

    About the user data, all user related tags ({name}, ...) work if used in the Newsletter messages (not only inside the emails).
