email every field

hi,  can you tell me what do I need to do to be able to receive every field from cform in email:

 I
have about 100 line form, some of the fields are Text Only elements,
and some of the 'text only elements' are quite long like a paragraph
kinda like terms and conditions so when user submits the form those
elements simply are not included in the email. Also some of the input
elements are left blank by user  so I'd like those blank fields to
include in the mail as well. The only fields are included are the ones
user fills. 

 

thanks

 

and I love ya for such a great plugin.

Right, TEXT-ONLY elements are not being included in the email or recorded by the DB Tracking feature.

Any input field, however, should be included in the email/tracking. If no value is given, or no checkbox checked the field should appear empty in the email.

Have you selected: "Include pre formatted form input at the bottom of …" ?

ok, I get now input text, but its very very important for me to receive text only elements. I built a special form that user reads terms and inputs his initials, also my form contains sections ( text only elements ) so when I receive mail I would like the form to be broken into sections/ blocks so I really need to get those text only elements to be sent to email. any hacks on that, please.

If you use fieldsets, the email should already show some form of segmentation. If that is not enough, you can de-select "Include pre formatted form input at the bottom of …" feature and build the form email completely from scratch, this would then also allow you to include the additional (text-only) elements,e.g.:

default:

A new submission (form: "{Form Name}")
=======================================
Submitted on: {Date}
Via: {Page}
By {IP} (visitor IP).

suggestion:

A new submission (form: "{Form Name}")
=======================================
Submitted on: {Date}
Via: {Page}
By {IP} (visitor IP).

============== segment 1 ================== 

field1: {field1}

…etc. 

============== segment 2 ================== 

text text text text

field2: {field2}
