You can use it as:
* contact form
* form to fill database tabel
* major survey jumping from one form to the next
* do something else in prepared class for developers
As knowledge about xml formatting and Joomla! form generation is needed, mod_qlform is a useful and mighty tool for developers.
All form fields see here: http://docs.joomla.org/Category:Standard_form_field_types
After trying to fix this problem by myself, I gave up and wrote an mail to the support - late at night. When I startet my mac in the morning, I've got an mail with a great workaround - it works perfectly.
Thank you so much for this great extensions and your amazing support.
I see in other reviews that some find writing the code a challenge - Its worth persisting! My CSS skills are not good, but the author went out of her way to help me get things formatted just right!
It's easy in use and works great. Also higly customisable - you can make nearly anything you want.
I've had some problems with getting some elements of the form to work in css styles, but withing a couple of hours I was contacted back by support which is very friendly. The support came up with the working sollution.
I'm really happy with ql forms extention! Surelly recommend it to everyone!
Bad enough that the form is created in a module the form creation is disastrous because no interface exists.
The fact that you need to create the form in the module manager reduces the working area to a tiny space. The non-existent form building interface doesn’t make it better but worse.
You must feed all form fields in a pseudo HTML language and must know all special attributes. Fast form making is not possible.
I propose a better form maker COMPONENT.
mod_qlform is based on Joomla! form generation via xml (not html). It is a proper way of generating a form for people who want much (from a little module) and who are willing to work a little bit. Our docu is good and I'm sorry you didn't take the time to ask our support,
Mareike is absolutely helpful and answered questions immediately. Thank you.
The code has a clear structure and can be changed easily with basic PHP knowledge.
For great multi-page forms and specific validations also knowledge about the Joomla Framework is required.
It's a great extension!
This is an amazing form. Was very easy to make it work for the first time. Though I have been struggling to use it for multiple forms and tables. I just created copy of module and trying to use for another form and table but just not working for me :(. Other than that no complains, love it.
thank you for your review! If you'd like to contact me, I'd be pleased. Maybe we get it to work together:-)
