I get the author email of a post in WordPress this way:
$author_email = get_the_author_meta('email', $post->post_author);
I would like to use the variable to populate the “to:” form of Contact Form 7.
I’ve been trying to use “Contact Form 7 Dynamic Text Extension” and pass it as a shortcode ( following this : http://sevenspark.com/wordpress-plugins/how-to-dynamically-set-the-recipient-to-email-address-in-contact-form-7 )
And then print it in the Form :
[dynamictext recipient-email "CF7_get_custom_field key='value_author_email'"]
The issue : I can’t seem to retrieve the email. In my form, the field stays empty. I’m not sure where the problem happens.
