Hello,

The Chronoforms component allows to send a form to an email address.. but.. is it possible to record a filled up form as a post (article) in a predefined category post ?

Thanks for help.

Hi chti56,

Yes, there is a Joomla! Article action you can use for that.

Hello Bob,
I've searched on internet but can't found it...

I found that: http://www.chronoengine.com/forums/posts/f26/t98550/submit-article-action.html

Is it the article you speak about ?

Hi chti56,

Yes and no - that is a post about using the action in CFv4

If you create a form using the New form button (not the New Simple one). Then click the Setup tab and you will see the Joomla! article action in the Joomla! actions group. You can drag it from there into the form On Submit event and configure it.

Thanx Bob,

I've seen what you speak about. I've tried but the registered article is completely empty.. i mean no title and no content !!
What could be wrong for me ?

Hi chti56,

The boxes in the Joomla! article action take the names of variables in the $form->data array. For the title this is probably a form input; for the intro-text and full-text you will probably want to either use text areas, or you can use Custom Code actions to build the text from several form inputs.
