Aldryn Forms App

Aldryn Forms allows you to build flexible HTML forms for your Aldryn and django CMS projects, and to integrate them directly in your pages.

Forms can be assembled using the form builder, with the familiar simple drag-and-drop interface of the django CMS plugin system.

Submitted data is stored in the Django database, and can be explored and exported using the admin, while forms can be configured to send a confirmation message to users.

Aldryn Platform Users

Choose a site you want to install the add-on to from the dashboard. Then go to Apps -> Install app and click Install next to Forms app.

Redeploy the site.

Upgrading from < 2.0

Version 2.0 introduced a new model for form data storage called FormSubmission. The old FormData model has been deprecated. Although the FormData model's data is still accessible through the admin, all new form data will be stored in the new FormSubmission model.

Manuall Installation

Run pip install aldryn-forms.



Configure aldryn-boilerplates (

To use the old templates, set ALDRYN_BOILERPLATE_NAME='legacy'. To use (recommended, will be renamed to aldryn-boilerplate-bootstrap3) set ALDRYN_BOILERPLATE_NAME='bootstrap3'.

Also ensure you define an e-mail backend for your app.

Creating a Form

You can create forms in the admin interface now. Search for the label Aldryn_Forms.
