Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 Modules » Hidden Fields Not Displaying Contant in Emails

  • Resolved jon_steele


    Apologies if this is a slight repeat of other hidden field data not appearing in emails, I have checked those posts and still have the problem. Is there anything else to check?
    I have tried post_title, post_url and a custom_field but can not get any to populate an email.
    Also one of my contact forms is loaded via the contact form 7 widget – does this affect this plugin at all or what data you may get from the web site?

    Below is my form;

    <p>Your Name (required)
    [text* your-name 30/] </p>

    <p>Your Email (required)
    [email* your-email 30/ ] </p>

    <p>Your Telephone(required)
    [text* Telephone 30/] </p>

    <p>Your Message
    [textarea your-message 25/] </p>
    [hidden post_title]
    [hidden post_url]
    [hidden custom_field-et_address]
    <p>[submit “Send”]</p>

    And the email;

    From: [your-name] <[your-email]>
    telephone: [your-telephone]
    Message Body:

    Any help would be much appreciated?
    Thank you
    Jon Steele

    Thanks, Jon.

    I’d appreciate it if you could rate and review the plugin!



    I’m having the same problem. I’m using WordPress multisite v3.4.2 and Contact Form 7 v3.3.1 and Contact Form 7 Modules: Hidden Fields v1.2.3. My emails come in like:

    From: Name
    Subject: post_title
    Custom Field 1: custom_field-custom_field_1
    Message: test

    Any thoughts?

    I can confirm this issue too. CF7 3.3.1 and modules 1.2.3

    The default values are not working – <input class="wpcf7-hidden" type="hidden" value="post_title" name="hidden-524">

    the same for me, not working and i can not find the previous version to return. please, help
