Insert variable not working for email address

    I have a site open ONLY to people who are logged in. I'm trying to use the the {user:user_email} in a hidden field so that they don't have to reenter their email address on each step of the multi-form process but I can still have the site email them their answers after they submit them.

    But it's not populating the field. I can see this when I'm logged in: it's not grabbing mine and the field is blank (I've used this feature in the past, so unless you've changed something here, I used to be able to see the email address in the form as it was populated).

    Any thoughts? It's not an email problem: I still get the requested messages sent to the admin.

    Using the latest versions of Gravity Forms and WordPress.

    Thanks Chris. I just sent one off to her. And no sweat -- I'm just glad it wasn't due to user error.

  4. WordPress changed the way they populate the usermeta, and Gravity Forms needed to change to keep up with that change. Dana will get you the new version. Thanks.

  5. Hi, Wes,

    I just emailed the version with the bug fix to you. Let me know if you have any issues by adding to this forum post, or a priority support request.
