How to delete linked table.

nilshenriks 19 Sep, 2012
I am running 4.0 RC3.4.1 and Joomla 2.5.7
How can I disable a linked table so that I can edit the actual form? I tried Form Wizard > Actions > DB Save > Configuration:
Enabled: No
Table: deselect the table and select --

After saving it defaulted back to the original form with the linked table. No change. :?

What am I doing wrong? I created a copy of the form (DONE), want to add more fields and then link it to a newly created table. I attached the form (caps_audition).

Thanks, Henrik

Hi Henrik,

You don't need to disable the link. The DB Save is disabled anyhow so won't do anything. Just create your new table and then connect a DB Save action to it.

Sorry Bob for not making myself clear. I want to add more form fields and currently the form won't allow me since it is tied to a table.

Hence my initial question how I can delete the table so that I can start editing the form and then later I will create a new table to store data.

Greetings, Henrik

Hi Henrik,

Whatever is stopping you adding more inputs it isn't because the form is 'tied' to a table.

What exactly happens?

Hi again,
I click on wizard edit and drag and drop a form element, then click on Configure and save. However it won't save and reverts back to the original (current) form. Henrik

Hi Bob,
sorry for my late reply. I was out traveling to NYC last week. I did inquire with Hostgator. Had to control the max_input_vars from my local php.ini file and not on the global php configuration. It worked. I am now able to edit and save the form again.

Thanks so much for the FAQ.
