    Hi,

    I have two places where the contact form has been used on my site. I was wondering if I could add a tag on my subject field to let me know which form the user has sent the form through?

    Here’s what I mean:
    1. Request a Brochure – Has a form where someone can ask for a brochure. Is it possible to add a ‘[Brochure]’ tag to the email I get?

    2. Contact Us – I have a regular contact us page on the form where someone can enter a query? Is it possible to add ‘Contact’ to the email I get?

    Thanks for your time

    Warm regards

    Hi Rohan!

    You could use a specialized plugin for that: http://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7/

    Or if you want to stick to the built-in one, take a look at this topic: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/mail-subject/

    Regards,

    Hi Josue,

    Thanks for the response. I couldn’t understand what to do with the second link you sent me. Let me try experimenting with Contact Form 7 – I recall being as confused when I tried that earlier.

    I do notice one issue with the build it form – once you click submit, it takes a long time to pop up the ‘Thank you for submitting’ message. Almost 10 seconds – 15 seconds sometimes. Not sure why.

    Let me see if switching to Contact Form 7 will address this issue.

    I think I have finally managed to do it!!!!!!!

    Thank you both for your help – Peter and Josue.

    One last question – I cannot figure how to make the forms in this link wider – the formatting of Contact Form 7 looks a lot shabbier than the in-built one you guys have. Any suggestions on how to make the boxes wider and taller?

    Hey!

    Please add following code to Quick CSS in Enfold theme options under Styling tab

     #top input[type="text"], #top select { width: auto; }

    And if you would like to make them to fit in the column;

    #top input[type="text"], #top select{ width: 484px; }

    Best regards,
    Yigit
