New field in Email receipt

New field in Email receipt

I've had to add a couple of new fields (Title and County) to my visitor (user) table and am trying to retrospectively make them appear everywhere they need to. I'm just about there but cannot see how the checkout form session is migrating to the email receipt generated from the success page. I've tried unsuccessfully duplicating the code:

$MailBody = $MailBody . ((isset($_SESSION["eCartCheckoutForm_county"]))?$_SESSION["eCartCheckoutForm_county"]:"");

Is there a helper file or somewhere else where the ecartCheckoutForm session is carried over?

On the confirm page, there is a code block for each form element to capture the posted value into a session variable. For the city form element, the code added looks like:

php:
<?php

if (!session_id()) session_start();
if(
$_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     {
  
$_SESSION["eCartCheckoutForm_city"] = "".((isset($_POST["city"]))?$_POST["city"]:"")  ."";
}
?>




there is also a hidden form element added near the bottom of the confirm page:

php:
<input type="hidden" name="city" id="city" value="<?php echo ((isset($_SESSION["eCartCheckoutForm_city"]))?$_SESSION["eCartCheckoutForm_city"]:""?>" />




for you county and title elements to function proper;y, you will need to add the code for setting the session variable, as well as add the hidden form element.

I hadn't copied the "hidden" code at the bottom of the confirm page. So now the title and county carries over to the email generated from the checkout_success page.

Thanks
