Dear Chetan,

With my current forms I can set the From Email and From Name to that of the user. That makes it very simple to reply to inquires since you only have to reply to the email received. Is it somehow possible to use {email:value} as the "From Email" and {name:value} as the "From Name" in the Email Options section? I understand I would also need to make those fields REQUIRED in the form.

See attached.

Thank you,
Jay

Hi Jay,
Thank you for using JD Simple Contact Form, Now you can use dynamic values in "From Email" and "From Name". No required fields. While sending email module will check if email is not valid then it will use system email and if name is empty then module will use system from name. In order to use, Just download the source code from github repository and install.

Thanks,
Hitesh Aggarwal

Hey Jay,

In case it wasn't clear what Hitesh meant was he added a patch right before he messaged you and you need to download a latest copy of the module using the following url:
github.com/joomdev/JD-Simple-Contact-Form/archive/master.zip

Thank You Hitesh for taking care for this one B).

Thanks,
Chetan

Hi Chetan & Hitesh,

First, I just want say how impressed I am with the level of support you guys provide! Thank you!

I downloaded and installed the patch successfully and changed the From Name field to {name:value} in the Email Options (since name is the variable I assigned in the Form Layout). And it's working perfectly.

However, I'm not able to enter {email:value} in the From Email field as it returns an error "Invalid field: From Email"

Cheers,
Jay

Thanks Jay, like i said yesterday. It's a team effort.

Install it from the URL once last time and it should be resolved.

Hi Guys,

My client asked if we could add {email:value} as an option for the cc: field as well. That way, the submitter will get a copy of their request.

Either that or add a checkbox with "Send me a copy of this request." just above the submit button.

Kind regards,
Jay
