How do I create form in an article?

malacite 14 Jul, 2009

I have downloaded chronoforms and setup a new form, on preview the link works a treat and all looks fine, although when I copy the link into an article the form is not displayed, and the page displayed is the website index page, mambots are on as I noticed this in a previous post.
Any help would be very well appreciated, thanks in advance.

Hi malacite,

Please download, install and enable the ChronoForms Plugin/Mambot to do this, You can then include a form with {chronocontact}form_name{/chronocontact}

Hi Greyhead,

Many thanks for the swift reply!

I have loaded the submitcontent form, is this the form I now need to edit with the form wizard and then point to from my artice html?

On looking at my page all I see is the html, see below, could you please advise where I have made a mistake?

Hi Malacite,

The Submit_Content for is for collecting form input and publishing the results as an article.

The ChronoForms Plugin/Mambot is for displaying a form as part of an article page.

Which are you trying to do here?

Hi Bob,

I have now got it working sorry I didnt understand the difference between the submitcontent and mambot download, have downloaded the Chronoforms Plugin now and it works a treat in my test article :-)

Many thanks !

Hi there,

How can I post a CC form in a Article. The normal Way to paste a CF is {chronocontact}form_name{/chronocontact}, but htis does not work with CC as it says NO form with that name.

Can anyone help me?

Hi Michael,

unfortunately this is not possible now, no plugin is available for connectivity!

Did you try ChronoMyAdmin for managing your Joomla database tables ?
