Hi Oscar,

installations/comments = ????

Which joomla version do you have ?

Which chronoforms version you try to install ?

Cheers

Ignore what I said in my first post, I was trying to install the wrong component. Anyway, I have got your program installed on joomla now. Now I need to get a basic form up and running. All I want to do is have someone enter their name, e-mail and comment. It's for a website I am doing for a company who makes exhausts for a motorbike. I watched the tutorials and it seems that I have to make up a form elsewhere and paste the coding into the form programme. I assume that I can just do this in Dreamweaver? Maybe you can give me an easier way of doing it. Thanks to the expedient reply

Hi Oscarfishlover,

You can use DreamWeaver or any tool that creates form html. Websites like Wufoo.com create quite good form code, or you can use the free Kompozer html editor. Here is some code from Kompozer that will create the form you describe:
Name: <br>
<input name="name"><br>
Email:<br>
<input name="Email"><br>
Comment:<br>
<textarea cols="40" rows="10" name="comment"></textarea><br>
<button name="submit">Submit</button><br>

I put the code in to the form code area but it doesn't seem to work.

Hi Oscarfishlover,

The link goes to a form that doesn't exist?

Not sure if I'm doing things correctly. What I was doing before was when I was adding something to the menu, I was pointing it to the chrono component. I'm wondering whether I should be putting the URL in instead. In setup, if I click on the URL, I can see the form

Hi Oscarfishlover,

When you open the ChronoForms Forms Manager you are shown a link for each form like this index.php?option=com_chronocontact&chronoformname=test_form

Creating a Link-Url to this from the Joomla Menu Manager should add the form to a Menu OK.
