I have a form set up using the method described in - Selectable Recipient with Pipes.
The dropdown includes each of the US states, with a salesperson's email address following the pipe.
[select* state-email "Alabamafirstname.lastname@example.org" "Alaskaemail@example.com" "Arizonafirstname.lastname@example.org" "Arkansasemail@example.com" "Californiafirstname.lastname@example.org" "Coloradoemail@example.com" ]
When the form is submitted, the salesperson's email address is saved to the database. I need the state saved to the database.
As described in the article, the state can be sent via email using
[_raw_state-email], but I cannot seem to find a way to save it to the database.
I have tried Contact Form 7 Dynamic Text Extension, which states that any shortcode can be used.
First, I simply tried using simply the
[_raw_state-email] shortcode. No luck.
Next, I created a shortcode using Contact Form DB and
_raw_state-email and passed it into a
dynamichidden field named
state. Still no luck. Only a comma was saved in Contact Form DB for
state (I'm not even sure where the comma came from). Contact Form 7 Dynamic Text Extension plugin is old, so I don't know if it doesn't work anymore or if Contact Form DB does not accept
I imagine Contact Form DB does not accept
_raw_state-email, otherwise it would already be saved to the database and visible for use... and being it is not accepted, obviously, it cannot be used in a shortcode.
Any help would be appreciated.
