Modify what fields form emails

Modify what fields form emails

My form emails include several fields I don't want - such as "Hidden Field:" and "SimpleContact submit:"

Looking at the code on the template it says <?php echo(str_replace("_"," ",$pkey)); ?> which doesn't help me in removing only particular items.

Where can I modify that and can I use the field names given on the email when I do it?

Thank you.

in the email template file, there should be the following code at the top:

php:
<?php

$remove 
= array();
$remove[]  = "";
$remove[]  = "x";
$remove[]  = "y";

$removeBegins = array();
$removeBegins[] = "Security";

$removeEnds = array();
$removeEnds[] = "_x";
$removeEnds[] = "_y";

$removeIncludes = array();
$removeIncludes[] = "Security";
?>



this creates three arrays for excluding elements form the email, In the first array, you can enter the beginning of a form element name, the second is the ending of a form element name, the last is used for any part of the form element name. you could add those two to the includes array:

php:
<?php

$remove 
= array();
$remove[]  = "";
$remove[]  = "x";
$remove[]  = "y";

$removeBegins = array();
$removeBegins[] = "Security";

$removeEnds = array();
$removeEnds[] = "_x";
$removeEnds[] = "_y";

$removeIncludes = array();
$removeIncludes[] = "Security";
$removeIncludes[] = "Hidden_Field";
$removeIncludes[] = "SimpleContact_submit";
?>

Great, - this post was just what I was looking for.

Is there an easy way to rename the array keys ?

no, if your rename the arrays, you need to edit the code that uses the arrays to use the new array names.

Hi Jason,

I'm not looking to rename the arrays, just the array keys.

for example, my page has several text fields txtfirstname, txt lastname etc.

what i would like to do is drop the txt prefix and put a space between the first and name, without renaming the fields

ahhh, that's a totally different can of worms.....


in the template file, look for the following code:

php:
<?php echo(str_replace("_"," ",$pkey)); ?>




and change it to:

php:
<?php echo(str_replace("_"," ",str_replace("txt","",$pkey))); ?>
