I am testing out the Email Contact Form for a new website and have some questions. I need to add several fields in addition to the standard set of To/From/Subject/Message. I defined two <input type name=“required”> fields and that worked fine—the data is included at the top of the body of the message. (BTW, I had no luck using “message”)
Here is the primary problem: The data is potentially indistinguishable from the receiver’s perspective. Is there a way to add a label or some text along with what the sender enters - e.g., “Zipcode:”. (Yes, the data probably will look very different between the additional fields, but that may not always be the case.)
Also, the EE email processor automatically does some error checking for the “standard” fields, e.g., the message field is required and a proper email address must be entered. Is there a way of specifying that other fields are “required”. (The “required” value for the “name” would imply that, but it doesn’t seem to work that way.)
And yes, I am aware of Freeform, but I would like to stay with basic EE if possible.
