Adding a Form
Forms use a simple CSV file format that you will have to type in manually until we develop a proper form creation interface for it.
Setup a Sample
To setup a sample on your site do this.
- Add the following widget code to the page you want the form displayed on.
- Then once you have the form you can hover it to start the form designer.
|Title||Similar to Section but more prominent|
|Section Break||For breaking up your form|
|Text Input||Use this anytime you want to add aline of text|
|Text Area||Use this when you need a paragraph or more of text|
|Radio Button||Use this for things like Yes or No|
|Checkbox||Use this when more than one option may apply|
|Select Drop Down||Similar to Checkbox but using a drop down menu to hold all the choices|
|Note or Descriptive Text||Use this anytime you feel the need to add additional text of information for the user to read.|
|Captcha||This will help control spammers|
|Submit Button||This is necessary on your form it adds the button they click to finish the form|
|PayPal||This is used to Add a Pay with Paypal button to your form. See additional instructions below|
|Calculation||Anytime you need to make a calculation based on other fields this can be used it can be used in conjunction with the PayPal link to calculate totals.|
Using the Paypal is a bit more complicated to use than the other form elements as it needs to be connected to two other form elements for it to work correctly.
You will need to know the "Paypal Item Name", and the "Paypal Item cost" These values can be gathered from other elements. When you select an element its ID can be found near the bottom in black typewriter text.
Use Calculate to take multiple fields and calculate a value for this field. Use the Elements ID in your calculations.
