    Hi!

    CF7 Version 4.9.1
    Contact Form 7 Shortcode Enabler Version 1.1

    The “Contact Form 7 Shortcode Enabler” does not work in the Message Body. I found that shortcodes that work in the CF7 form, does not work in the emails that get sent.

    Hi,

    that’s right. I’d have to look into making them work in emails, too. But currently shortcodes are only supported inside the form themselves.

    Is this still an issue for you, or did you find a way to work around this?

    Yes, I found a work-around by adding a hidden CF7 type input field that CF7 recognizes using a short code I added in functions.php. I can now use that value just like any other CF7 input, both in the form and in the email.

    Would you mind giving more details and sharing the code you used in Functions.php?
