Requirements

  • SilverStripe 3.1

Features

  • Construct a form using all major form fields (text, email, dropdown, radio, checkbox..)
  • Ability to extend userforms from other modules to provide extra fields.
  • Ability to email multiple people the form submission
  • View submitted submissions and export them to CSV
  • Define custom error messages and validation settings
  • Optionally display and hide fields using javascript based on users input
  • Pre fill your form fields, by passing your values by url (http://yoursite.com/formpage?EditableField1=MyValue)

Installation

Via composer

composer require "silverstripe/userforms:dev-master"

Manually

  1. Download the module from the link above.
  2. Extract the file (if you are on windows try 7-zip for extracting tar.gz files
  3. Make sure the folder after being extracted is named 'userforms'
  4. Place this directory in your sites root directory. This is the one with framework and cms in it.

After installation, make sure you rebuild your database through dev/build. You should see a new PageType in the CMS 'User Defined Form'. This has a new 'Form' tab which has your form builder.

Troubleshooting

After installation make sure you have done a dev/build you may also need to flush the admin view by appending ?flush=1 to the URL like http://yoursite.com/admin?flush=1

Tasks

UserForms EditableFormField Column Clean task

This task is used to clear unused columns from EditableFormField

The reason to clear these columns is because having surplus forms can break form saving.

Currently it only supports MySQL and when it is run it queries the EditableFormField class for the valid columns, it then grabs the columns for the live database it will create a backup of the table and then remove any columns that are surplus.

To run the task login as Admin and go to to http://yoursite/dev/tasks/UserFormsColumnCleanTask

Thanks

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the module, bugfixers, testers, clients who use the module and everyone that submits new features.

A big thanks goes out to Jan Düsedau for drawing the custom icon set for the form fields.
