[For 1.8] Form Creator V2.6.5
The Field Name and Field Value are clickable. They add a tag to the editor. There you can do with it what you like.
The tag is replaced by either the fields name or the fields value someone enters in the form

Hi, I have 2 questions and a possible bug about this plugin.

1. is there anyway to add an expand/collapse feature to the header template like the one for the .thead on the forum's index?

I want to allow users to be able to collapse parts of the form that are irrelevant to them.

I have tried copying the template info for the .thead on the index, and I put it into the form's header template, but it did not work.

I am using this plugin, and though it works great, I'd like to add this feature for some long forms I have.

2. How do I access the "send email to" option?

I can only see this option from the form view page in the ACP, where it shows the fields, but there is no way to access this.

I am asking, because I am using this plugin for a business I am associated with, and the business owner would like to receive an email copy of the forms that were filled out by their clients, as well as being posted to a specific forum.

3. The class section, at the bottom of the field seems not to work,  I would like to alternate between 2 colors to change the appearance of the form, but nothing seems to work where the fields are concerned. The only area that does seem to work, is when I change the class of the submit button. 

I have tried changing the class of the fields but it doesn't work, and it would be nice if I could change the class of the separator or at least put an image there to mark the separation even though it is under the same header on the form.

Thank you in advance for your time, and as always, I am appreciative of any help received.

1. Should be able to be done by changing the templates. This is something that is managed by the forum's template. Not something I will implement because I would create something for a default template that doesn't copy to custom templates by default.

2. Send mail option was never introduced due to possible spam issues. Haven't gotten around creating it.

3.  The class is added to the field not to the table row. Still what you are trying to achieve again is a template thing. See one of my forums: https://4thib.co.uk/form.php?formid=1.

Simply added this to the stylesheet will alternate the background color of a table row


table tbody tr {
    border-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.25);
}

table tbody tr:nth-child(2n + 1) {
    background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.075);
}

Hi, thank you for the reply, I really appreciate it.

1. Would I have to change the template for the plugin or for the forum itself and what changes would I have to make?

I have no experience with coding, and so, I have no idea as to what I would have to change. I pasted the template for the forum category in there, and it did not work, so I quickly changed it back.

2. Would I have to add this to the global.css ?

Unfortunately, I couldn't see the form when I clicked your link.. It gave me an error saying I needed to login to see the page.

Hi,

For point 1 you would have to edit the template of a header block of the plugin to do so.
What exactly also takes me time to fully write out. I can't help you with this on short terms

For point 2. Yes I send you a form that is locked to logged on users. This one is public: https://4thib.co.uk/form.php?formid=3
As long as the stylesheet is active on forms page. I guess global.css will be.

Oh ok, I see what you mean, and I also see that you got the captcha to work, that is something I have not been able to get working yet on this software, regardless of selection, plugin or not, so I had to get creative.

Until I saw your form, I thought that captcha just didn't work anymore.

Anyway, I will try adding the css to the global css and see what happens.

Thank you very much for the replies and help. I really appreciate it.

Changing the url of forms can be done by url rewrite through your .htaccess file
For example you could add this line

RewriteRule ^form-([0-9]+)\.html$ form.php?formid=$1 [L,QSA]

This will result in http://website.com/form7.html for the example you have written

A custom message after completion isn't build in. You can however forward them to a custom completion page using the form option for this

I'm getting this error when I've installed the plugin. Everything works until you try to submit the form.

Form Creator: The table structures have changed. It is adviced to create an export of your forms and reinstall the plugin!

Hi. This is an old feature that should only trigger when the plugin is updated.

Can you please tell me what PHP version and MySQL / MariaDB version you are running?
