How to Fill the Pattern in the Contact Form

by | Feb 7, 2018 | Divi, Light Side

Requirements:

A contact form module.

1. Message Pattern

This is a must to do in every form made in Divi in order to receive all the data submitted by the user.

We can customize the message and order the data as needed.

The form module by default has some premade fields and each one has a unique Field ID.

All the fields must have a Field ID, those ID are used in the pattern to define the structure of the message.

This how to use those ID names inside of the Pattern:

Wrapping around percentage double symbols like: %%myid%% the ID Names is how this works.

The rest of the message you can fully customize it for your necessities.

As I said this the basic form,l if you add more fields be sure you add a ID and then add it to the Pattern.

      Hi Camila, if u followed that and my tutorial and sill doesn`t work I suggest you to contact your hosting to check if the email is working? Or can you acces to it? Just in case the email you need to use is tmh like whatever@mydomain… !

    Is there any way to increase the text size in the message sent – so when it lands in outlook or whatever, the font size is bigger?

      Hi Lynda , sorry for the late reply, I haven’t tried that, I got a small idea and perhaps I can make it work. I’ll make a test and come back. But perhaps you can give a setting on the email app to increase the font-size?

    Hi Nico,
    Some people have a long form to fill out and once received in Outlook, it can look like a jumbled mess. How can I format the message to break each answer on a new line?
    Would something like this work?
    Message pattern
    %%name%%
    %%myid%%
    %%myid%%
    %%myid%%
    %%myid%%
    %%myid%%

    Thanks. I love your website design too btw.

      Yes , something like that will work, you can also type html directly to make some spaces!

    Is there a way to include the page name or URL in the message so you can tell what page it was submitted on?

      Hey Kevin, you should be allowed to writte in the Message Pattern, in there you can type anything that can distinguish from the others, example: This message was sent form hompeage, my name is %%Name%%.. etc.
      Hope it helps you!
