Idea for future versions, simple? (4 posts)

    Instead of using the [your-subject] for the 'subject' of forms in the wp admin side, can it be set to the actual input for the email subject field, in the instance that you've set a specific text-based subject?

    For example, I have a client who has a site with 7 booking forms. Each subject uses the form's title, i.e. "Airport booking query", so the person inputting data never enters a subject, but my client know which booking the person needs.

    I'd love to install Flamingo as a backup for my client, but cannot whilst it uses [your-subject] (which is set to be blank, as it's not used)

    Hi Mtstudios

    You could use this extension:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7-dynamic-text-extension/

    Passing the Subject via the variable. You could use it to pull in the Page/Post title e.g. Airport Booking Query as page title becomes submission subject.

    List of things it can do:

    Auto-filling a URL
    Auto-filling a Post ID, title, or slug
    Pre-populating a Product Number
    Referencing other content on the site
    Populating with post info
    Populating with user info
    Populating with custom fields
    Any value you can write a shortcode for

    I hope that helps,
    Zane

    Use Zanedickens suggestion of CF7-DTX

    Just add this to your form and it will solve your problem.
    [dynamichidden your-subject "Airport booking query"]

    Then you can set "Subject" to "[your-subject]"

    Hope that helps,

    Tim

    You can also add
    flamingo_subject: [your-subject-field]
    in the additional settings field on CF7 for that particular form.

    Don't forget to change the string "your-subject-field" to the name of your field. You should also be able to put a static arbitrary string in place of the merge tag.

    Hope the helps,
    Tim
