    Eric, love the plug-in and it's simplicity. What is the best way to auto add the page title to the subject line and not mess with the form...ie "Subject: Call Me -- mydomain.com/new-product/" where 'Call Me' is their input and the other is the page they clicked on the form from.

    There are a number of ways to accomplish your request, but try
    this out and see if it fits your needs:

    In js/smcf.js, change:

    data: $('#smcf-container form').serialize() + '&action=send',


    data: $('#smcf-container form').serialize() + '&action=send&pagetitle=' + encodeURIComponent(document.title),

    Then in smcf_data.php, below:

    if (get_option("smcf_ua")) {
           $message .= "\n\nUSER AGENT: " . $_SERVER["HTTP_USER_AGENT"];


    if (isset($_POST["pagetitle"])) {
       $message .= "\n\nPage Title: " . isset($_POST["pagetitle"]);

    I haven't tested it, so let me know if you have any issue.

    I'm interested in this, too. I'd prefer to have the page title included in the body of the email rather than the subject, but either way will work. I tried the above, but it didn't work. Any other suggestions?

    @pnelsen I did this by altering smcf.php by changing line (about) 209 to this:

    if (get_option("smcf_form_subject") == 1) {
    			$output .= "
    				    <input type='hidden' id='smcf-subject' class='smcf-input' name='subject' value='". single_post_title('Enquiry about ', false) . "' readonly='readonly' tabindex='1003' />";

    You will probably need to change the "single_post_title" to whatever type of page you have as single_post_title is specific to (funnily enough) the title of a single post page (the_title may work, but I don't remember as that can only be used within the loop).

    @Mike You can do the same thing above - just add value='". single_post_title('Enquiry about ', false) . "' to the <textarea id='smcf-message'> on line (about) 215 (bearing in mind that you will also need to change single_post_title to whatever type of page it is.
