From line cutting off last letter of last name (6 posts)

    When I receive an email after a form has been submitted, the "From" line is cutting off the last letter of the last name, even though it is not cut off in the message body. It is not running into a max character issues.

    My from line code looks like this: [first-name] [last-name] <[your-email]>

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I am also having the same issue — any help would be appreciated.

    [text-first-name] [text-last-name]<[email-address]>

    I ended up switching to 'Formidable Forms'. Much better plugin. Sooooo much easier to use. Link - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/formidable/

    Our error ended up being that we did not have a space between the label and the email address, though it looks like corpcasting had it right, so I'm not as sure now. Something to try at least:
    Bad: [text-first-name] [text-last-name]<[email-address]>
    Good: [text-first-name] [text-last-name] <[email-address]>

    FWIW, after taking a quick look, the plugin that corpcasting suggested may be better. At very least you don't need a separate plugin to capture data to your DB.

    You also don't need to build the response emails with Formidable Forms. It builds them for you. It takes a quarter of the time.
