Customize Flamingo Inbound Messages and CSV Spreadsheet Export with the Post Title

Today’s topic is pulling the Post Title (_post_title) field from the Contact Form 7 plugin into the Flamingo table and also pulling it into the Export spreadsheet CSV file. I spent way too much time trying to figure this out and so I am sharing my discovery with the rest of the world in hopes that you may find this useful. The Contact Form 7 plugin is a great plugin but really should consider implementing this capability in future updates as it seems to be a common issue.

Download and install the following plugin:
Contact Form 7 Dynamic Text Extension

In the Form Tab of Contact Form 7, add the following code:

[dynamichidden your-subject “CF7_get_post_var key=’title’”]

If you also want to pull the URL of the post, you can also add the following code:

[dynamichidden page-url “CF7_URL”]

That’s it! Now the Subject and the URL should show up in the Flamingo Inbound Messages table and also when you export the CSV. Hope this helps! Comment below if you have any issues or suggestions.
