How do I create a custom form?

To create a new form:

  1. Log into the site with an admin account.
  2. Click on "Administer Site" in the menu.
  3. In the left menu, click "Modules", select "Forms".
  4. Click the "Create Form" button.
  5. Enter a name, intro (text that appears above a form), confirmation (text that appears after a user submits a form), and an email address that should receive the form data.
  6. Click the "Continue" button.
  7. Next, click on "Add/Edit Fields" next to the form you just created.
  8. Click the "Add Field" button.

Several field types are available:

  • Single-line box: a basic input box that allows for one line of entry
  • Multi-line box: an input box that allows for multiple lines of entry
  • Drop down list: a drop down list of multiple items
  • Radio buttons: a list of radio buttons
  • Checkbox: a list of checkboxes
  • Comments: allows you to add a line of text above fields for grouping
  • Calendar: displays an input box that launches a popup calendar
  • Email field: displays an input box that validates the field as an email format
  • Phone field: displays an input box that validates the field as a phone format
  • Single-line field (hidden): use this if you want to hide something from the user but have it appear in the confirmation email
  • Divider line: displays a diver line between fields

Once you have selected the appropriate field type, fill out the remaining fields and click the "Add" button. Repeat starting with Step 7 for additional fields.
