Cant get this to work

I've installed the form module - and created a form - but cant create ANY fields.

When I submit im taken to the sites homepage?

Can anyone advise?

  • Hi Pilt,

    Yes, the flexfile plugin requires that you define custom list and display templates if you want to see those extra fields.

  • Ok, thanks for the reply :)

    I would like to have something like this in my file upload.

    I tried writing a small php script in the display template with a if function, so that what would show up was the shortform of the licenses (BY-NC-SA, BY-NC, etc.), but the php script just dissapeared. Tinymce was turned off. 

    I followed instructions on W3schools and I'm sure the php is correct, but is it not possible to write php in the templates? And is it any other method to get a sort of license chooser like in the link? Maybe someone already have made one?


  • Hi Pilt,

    Please take a look at the README.txt files for the form and flexfile modules to see the template language. No, you can't include PHP.

  • I've read the README files, but I dont understand all.. This template language, does it only support html and theese php ?variables? inside {} ?

    Anyway, I'll predefine the license choises, so that there is no need for any "if" functions.



  • wow - thanks for the response guys much obliged :)

  • @Dhrup its hard to do research, when I cant determine the issue and spec an appropriate setup, hence needing the advice!

  • Just - an FYI - went with media temple!


    What a dream these guys are :)
