Cannot edit dynamic elements on Blank/default email file

Cannot edit dynamic elements on Blank/default email file

Hi, I am making a contact form with form builder.
I'd like to edit the default email format since there are unnecessary elements.
But it seems it's all hidden or written elsewhere.

In the email message, there are:
- Form Submitted
- Full Name
- Tel
- Email address
- Comments
- Hidden Field
- Submit
- Additional Notes

I cannot find any line that tells from "Full Name" to "Submit" in the Blank email file.
And it looks everything is included within:

foreach( $_POST as $pkey => $pval ){
if (!RemoveValue($pkey,$remove,$removeBegins,$removeEnds,$removeIncludes)) {
if (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) $pval = stripslashes((is_array($pval)?implode(", ",$pval):$pval));
<tr valign="top">
<th style="font-size: 12px; width: 134px; text-align: right; padding: 3px 10px 3px 3px; font-weight: bold;"><?php echo(str_replace("_"," ",$pkey)); ?>:</th>
<td style="font-size: 12px; padding: 3px;"><?php echo(str_replace("\n","<BR />",(is_array($pval)?implode(", ",$pval):$pval))); ?></td>

Where can I look and edit this?
Thank you for your help.

They are automatically created from the name of the form elements on the page. You can remove that section to manually configure and design the page, or just update the form element names to change the fields displayed in the email body.

Additionally you can remove fields you don't want listed on the top of the email body page.

Hi Ray,

Thank you, but still don't get it.

"You can remove that section to manually configure and design the page"
Where can I remove sections from? Contact form file?

At the moment the email gets below dynamic value with everything else and I don't want to have them on the email.
(See the attachment - email.png.)

- Hidden Field: blank
- Submit: Contact me

I also attached contact form file as well.

The update would be made on the email body page in the webassist/email/templates folder. Probably called Blank.php if you haven't renamed it. If you send me a copy of that I can explain how to fix it, but you might be able to figure it out by looking at the code on the top of that page yourself.
