Using email merge fields in the Global Email Header


Recommended Posts



I wanted to have a common header theme across all the email generated but wanted to use the {emailsubject} field in the header.


When I added the custom global header in the settings section and send an email the subject {emailsubject} is blank.


Do merge fields only work in the email template and not the header or footers?


Strangely in the Global Footer section I have a merge field {signature} in use which does seem to work.


When I put {emailsubject} in the body (I.e in the template) it works.


I got the field name by doing a {dump} of all the fields because the documentation on this isn't great to say the least.


I wanted custom global headers and footers to avoid the painful exercise of changing _all_ the email templates. Plus the more I can keep to the standard out of the box, makes upgrading versions easier.


Any ideas people??
