Support » Plugin: Simple Basic Contact Form » Works perfectly as billed!

  • SBCF was easy to setup and it worked exactly as I expected first time. I like it so much I want to make a request for a small enhancement. If the subject could include the current date and time, that would be awesome! That makes each message unique. I use GMail and with a static subject, all messages get jammed into one conversation. The timestamp would keep all contact messages separate.

    Thanks for the rating.

    As for the date in the subject, I’ve added that to the to do list for the next update.

    Hi @bigleaf3

    Just released the update.

    In the “Default subject” option put [simple_contact_form_date] in the place where you want the date to be shown.

    It will use the date format set in WP admin > Settings > Reading.

    If you want a special date format you can do that with

    More info on those formats can be found in the documentation.

    To make them all unique you can simply use the UNIX timestamp.

    Adding the date and time to the subject field is awesome! Thank you!

    For people not familiar with PHP you can use any of the following letters to stand in for the parts of a date and time. The site has many other options if you want to get really fancy.

    • Y – all 4 digits of the year
    • m – 2 digits of the month, with leading zero
    • d – 2 digits of the day, with leading zero
    • H – 2 digits of the hour, with leading zero, 24 hours
    • i – 2 digits of the minute, with leading zero
    • s – 2 digits of the second, with leading zero
