Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Sender email address not showing

  • Hi i´ve been using Contact Form since the beggining but with the 3.5.2 and WP 3.6 i´m having problems with any html tags, including the sender email address.

    Here is my very simple message body( and yes i´ve checked the “use html”)
    From: [your-name] <[your-email]>
    Subject: [your-subject]

    Message body:

    Email enviado via formulário em my site:
    using the < > makes [your-email] disapears completely from message body and removing then the sender appears again but it´s not clickable anymore. The same happens to my site address. It seems to be something stripping off any html inside my message body.

    Any clue on this?

    PS. I´m using buddypress (the latest) and also tried to switch to default bd press and wp themes but no luck

    Ps2. funny but if i use < strong > From: </ strong > i get the correct style applied to message body

    Use &lt; and &gt; instead of < and > when you use them in HTML and they are not used as parts of HTML tags.

    Thank you Takayuki for your response.
    So you mean that i have to set my message body like this:

    From: [your-name] <[your-email]>


    Thank you

    Thanks Tayayuki!
    This works especially well for Contact Form 7. If you select use html content type in your mail settings for your contact form, WordPress can eliminate the < and the >, so sender emails don’t show up. But if you use something like:
    [sender-name] &lt;[sender-email]&gt; instead of the default [sender-name] <[sender-email]> the sender email address works properly.
