This did the job I wanted but the installation info could be a little clearer. All it says is: Basic usage: [datepicker myFirstDatepicker id:myFirstDatepicker] I figured out that this had to be placed within the form fields; but in order to get the form to send the date the following also has to be added in the message body of the mail tab: Date : [myFirstDatepicker] Took me a couple of goes to work out was was needed. Great plugin, just needs better instructions for use.

Thanks, so I can see the right date format. I tried to add a min date like this: [datepicker date-1 min:today+7days id:date-1 format:dd/mm/yy] or [datepicker date-1 start-date min:today+7days id:date-1 format:dd/mm/yy] but doesn’t work, any idea please? M
