Can I use Joomla! plug-ins and modules with CFv5?

Published: Tuesday, 05 May 2015 09:57

Sometimes it is useful to be able to use other Joomla! extensions with ChronoForms. This is often - but not always - possible to do.

Using Joomla! Plug-ins

There is a Joomla! Plug-ins action in the Joomla! actions group on the setup tab. If you add this to your form On Load event then the form should accept most Joomla! Content plug-ins.

Note: if you are using the form in an article then you should make sure that the ChronoForms plug-in is run before any other plug-ins that you need to include.

Using Joomla! Modules

There is no direct support for this - however a user found that this code worked in a Custom Code element:

echo JHTML::_('content.prepare', '');
