For a new website I started with Joomla 1.6. Since there are not much formeditors yet for Joomla 1.6 AND since Chronoforms has good reviews I decided to give it a try.
Installation was easy.
Setting up the first form was a bit tacky but manageable.
Then sending the form as a test and all I received by e-mail was " You may customize this message under the "Template" tab in the Email settings box." It took me hours to find out that an 'emailtemplate' needs to be created before you can receive the content of a form. Even more crazy is that this template needs to be written in HTML.
Why do I use a formeditor? Because I don't know any codelanguage so I therefore I rely on wysiwyg software.
What do I want to receive from my visitors? The input my visitors fill out in the fields I created. Yes, I am a codedummy.
Then WHY do they expect me to start struggling with stupid code again?
I will not use this formeditor. It is not finished yet.
