Dear Member,
How can I make the IP address of the sender visible in a contact form ?
It was possible in the previous versions.
Regards.

Hi hansie,
You can use {ip:} to get the user's IP address. Please see the end of the ShortCodes FAQ

Hi guys, I read the manual and the faqs but to me it's not clear where exactly I should put {ip:}, if anyone passing by and cared to give an example it'd be great. Have a nice day.

Hi Alistair,
What exactly do you need to do? If it is just to display the IP address, then put <p>{ip}</p> in a Custom element.

If it is just to display the IP address
Yes. Just that. Custom element where? Design? Setup? I tried both and none worked. If there is an example anywhere it would be more clear.
Also the dynamic reply to sender email I can't find where and what I should write, again if anyone has an example that works as I tried quite a few and couldn't make it work.

Hi Alistair,
Designer tab > Custom > </> HTML
Setup tab > Email action > General > Recipents List > {data:email} - or replace email with the name of your email input.

Hi, maybe I'm on a different chronoforms version, I'm using 6.0.20. But if I put any of these:
<p>{ip}</p>
<p>{ip:}</p>
{ip}
{ip:}
in a </> HTML custom field it just displays wathever I wrote in the form.
As regards the Recipent field I already have my email there, I meant if it's possible when receiving a form via email to click "reply" in my email account and have the recipient's email filled automatically with the email the sender used to send the enquiry.
I hope I made sense, sorry but I struggle with the technical terms.

Hi Alistair,
Maybe the ip address isn't in the form data on Load, you can check by adding a Debugger action to the form On Load event.
To set the Reply To name and email address please scroll down the Email action General tab.
