{Your Name} not picking up the name

Please replace the ??? with your data!

I am unable to get the response emails to pick up the variable of the Your Name field.  I have {Your Name} in the email to the submitted and in the title of the one coming to me, the admin, and it arrives as {Your Name}.

I actually modified the form and the first field asks for "First name" so I tried {First name} in the emails as a variable also and that does not work.

Did I do something wrong or is this a bug?

Thanks again!

The variable name is derived from the "Field Name" (the label part) and to avoid any inconsistencies it takes the field name as is. I think you're using HTML in the label text, so you'd have to include that as well…

Try <b>First name</b>

A suggestion: why not alter the CSS to make you labels bold, this would keep your Field Names simpler.

Great idea on the css, I am guessing something like:

 

.xxxxx a
{
color: darkred;
font-weight: bold;
}

 

But I have no idea what to put for "xxxxx"

Did I get it mostly right?

Once I get the css working for this, will test the First name thing again.

This is all you need to add to your cforms.css (via the theme editor):

.cform label {

color: darkred;
font-weight: bold;

}

Also, you might want to check out the CSS guide and webcast I put together, it's in the CSS Forum (sticky post at the top)
