Custom Meta Boxes text in e-mail

  1. Hi,

    I created and use Custom Meta Boxes for date and place in single post. When a user fill in a form in the post, he receives an e-mail with a message and everything he filled in.

    I would like to include in this e-mail also information about the place and date. Is there a chance how to print this into the e-mail?

    To grab custom field values from the post/page you have to use PHP code and our gform_pre_render hook to push the values to those fields.

    1.) Make sure the field have checkmarks in the "allow populate dynamically"
    2.) Add gform_pre_render hook to your theme's functions.php file. http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_pre_render
    3.) Get the post meta - http://www.wprecipes.com/wordpress-how-to-get-custom-fields-outside-the-loop
    4.) Insert the values into the fields you want them in.

    I hope that helps.

  7. Thanks David.

    Step 2: I copied:
    <?php
    add_filter("gform_pre_render", "pre_render_function");
    ?>
    and placed it in my functions.php

    Then I got error:
    Warning: call_user_func_array() [function.call-user-func-array]: First argument is expected to be a valid callback, 'pre_render_function' was given in /home/www/zbyseknadenik.cz/subdomeny/projekty/autopatie/web/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 173
    Oops! We could not locate your form.

    Sorry, I'm not a programmer...

    What does your function look like? Did you put this in your theme's functions.php file?
