    Hi ... I have a site where I allow registered members (contributors) to create a post about their services. I want to auto insert a contact form below their post and want the "Send email to" field to be auto populated with their email id. This will send email to each contributor from their page. Please help.

    Special Mail Tags

    [_post_author_email] is useful for such cases.

    You can embed the contact form into the template file. Maybe single.php in your theme is good.

    FAQ: Can I embed a contact form into my template file?

    Note that you need to place the shortcode inside WP loop if you use [_post_author_email].

    Thanks a lot !!!!!!
    I was embedding the do_shortcode code outsite the loop in a template (single.php) and it was not working. It works fine inside the loop. Thanks buddy :-)
