    Special Mail Tags

    As written in the documentation, not all special mail tags are not available outside post contents.

    More accurately, [_post_*] tags are available inside the loop even if the forms are in the sidebar.

    hi takayuki and thanks for your quick reply.

    so you say [_post_title] should work in the sidebar right? but i tried using using it in the object field and it didn’t work (i get “[_post_title]” as object instead of the post title).

    is there something to check?

    I said it should work if it is inside the loop.

    What do you mean by “object field”?

    object field is the subject field sorry.

    unfortunately it doesn’t work then…how can i check if it’s inside the loop or not? if it’s in the sidebar i thing it’s outside the loop…no?

    In usual themes, sidebar is outside the loop.

    in fact is what i used to know.
    i’m using twenty twelve.
    so there’s really nothing i can do?

    You can edit the template file to add the loop part in it, but I’d advise against it unless you have enough knowledge of WordPress template.

    i don’t know if it’s somethin i can do…what i should do to add it? i have a well management of the templates but i don’t know if it’s enough…
