I've been trying to get my custom contribution fields to be visible in my thank you/receipt message template and I think I am close but not quite there.

I have enabled the CIVICRM_MAIL_SMARTY flag in civicrm.settings.php and used the following capture {capture assign=test}{contribution.custom_5}{/capture} to retrieve the field per the following instructions:
https://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/Smarty+in+mail+templates but no luck (value is not getting returned) :/

There also seems to be an approach to build an extension or use the Tokens and TokenValues Hooks and API generated code but I am stuck on how to do this given it's a custom contribution field used on a multiple contribution (grouped by contact) thank you.

This seems like a very standard request so thought maybe someone out there has already built this!?!?

Any guidance or insight would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Karen

P.S. Most of the installs I would like to do this for are running WP 4.6.x or 4.7.x and CiviCRM 4.6.x. Is this feature more readily available in CiviCRM 4.7.x?
