Appending an ID to a form

  1. I know there were talks about adding this into the Advanced options for each field (PLEASE!) but I need to append a more "friendly" id name to a few fields for interaction with third-party systems.

    Instead of mapping..

    'field_2_12' to "First Name"

    I would rather able able to have the field be..

    'field_2_12 firstname' so it will be easier to map to "First Name"

    Seems like this will still keep the native / generated names needed for functionality, but also allow us to have a more friendly name used for mappings / etc.

    Is there a way to do this currently via hooks/filters?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not currently, no. I'll move this to feature request though so that the developers see it. This might be a good middle ground to keep their code working, and allow people to assign names as well.
