Append Form Items to post

  1. newball

    I know there was a conversation concerning having custom fields added to the post, in my case, I would like a broader option. It would be great if I could append any information submitted into a submitted post AND determine the organization it appears in. For instance, I love using the URL field, but for my purposes it doesn't help me if I can't add it to the end of my post. I would also love to have the name field added, but that I would want before the URL field.

    It would also be great if I could add some text before these items as they appear in the post, for instance, if I was able to add the url value to a post, it would like to add the word "link" or maybe "website" before it.

  2. We agree. We are planning on implementing some changes that give you control over the post body format, including inserting form field variables from other fields that exist in the form into the post body. This will be done in similar fashion to how you use form field variables in the form notification emails. Look for this possibly as early as the 1.4 release.

    Carl - is there any way to insert an existing custom field into the form?

    For example, if a consumer is submitting a form from a particular page on my site, I want to insert the value from my custom field: dname (which corresponds to the business name) on my form.

    Is this possible?
