    first of all, thank you for such great plugin. I was using it for some time, but then suddenly on form submit I get an error and no form data was sent even to notification email address.

    Here is the error that is produced on submit. Maybe you can explain why it is suddenly not working?

    Hello @unigunde
    A pleasure that you liked the plugin 🙂

    First, Your error indicates that you are using smart tag {entry_date}
    where you are using this smart tag?
    There is no such smart tag, you have to simply use date named smart tag.
    you can refer this

    and in google sheet use the simple column name with a date
    and let me know along with screenshot if still having an issue, to help you out further.

    Thank you so much for SUPER fast answer!
    I don’t use the smart tag {entry_date}, I see that it is added in WPForms changelog just recently https://wpforms.com/docs/how-to-view-recent-changes-to-the-wpforms-plugin-changelog/#wpforms
    Since the last WPForms update this error appeared.

    Hi @unigunde,

    That is correct but the changelog what you are referring is of the PRO version.

    As you are using WPForms lite, here is the change log https://wordpress.org/plugins/wpforms-lite/#developers.

    Hope this helps.

    yes, good point.
    I rolled back to WPForms Lite and now all works again.

    Rolling back isn’t a solution, it’s a compromise.

    I have located the problem: –

    On line 275 of class-wpforms-integration.php, you are passing a malformed argument:
    $data[ $key ] = wpforms()->smart_tags->process( '{' . $key . '}' , $form_data, $fields, $entry_id );

    The above should be:
    $data[ $key ] = wpforms()->smart_tags->process( $key, $form_data, $fields, $entry_id );

    The reason for this lies in the class-smart-tags.php of WPForms:
    $content = $this->parse( '{' . $tag . '}', ....

    You only need to send the raw field label, not the curly braces.

    Fixing the above file should get it to work.
