Auto Confirmation Variables Not Working

I tried to setup my Auto-Confirmation email as follows:

Dear {Your Name},

Thank you for your email!

Submitted on: {Date}
Via: {Page}
By your IP: {IP}

 

'Your Name' works, but the rest of it does not work and shows blank.

 

Why do these variables work correctly in the Form Admin, but do not work in the Sender mailbox?

Right, I think those (standard) variables I neglected for the confirmation message. Will check and if indeed missed, they'll be added in v5.0.

Thanks!

By the way, i think there is another bug.

My cForm at http://www.tellsweetheart.com/sweetheart has many fields that are 'required' to fill in.  Suppose one of the field (Name) is omitted, an error message will pop-out and that field will change to Red Color.  I can still type in that field but the word will be in RED, and i continue to click the submit button.

Everything works as usual, but i believe the INPUT in RED prevents the variable from capturing the data.  The end result is I (Admin) receive a notification of a post with a title subject that does not capture the 'Name' but the content of the letter captures everything correctly.  As for the sender, he would receive an email where the 'Name' does not appear in the subject header as well as the content letter 'Dear' blank.

I solve this problem by setting a default message in the Name Field with auto-clear feature.  By doing so, although a person omits the Name Field, there would still be a Default Name as per default message.   :)

 Right, if the field doesn't validate it gets a red border and the content will be marked red. This stays until the user tries to submit again, just typing text will not interactively validate the field and reset the color – the user has to click the submit button. You can turn off the red text color via CSS if you think this is confusing to people.
