Installation:
=============

1. Place FormTemplateProcessor.module in your site/modules/ directory.
2. Login to ProcessWire admin and click to Modules.
3. Click "Check for new modules".
4. Click "install" next to the new FormTemplateProcessor module.

Usage:
======

1. In admin, create the fields you want to be part of the form.
2. Create a new template and assign your fields to this template.
3. Create another template for your contact form page (if you don't already have one).
4. Use the example below as a starting point for this contact form page:

$form = $modules->get('FormTemplateProcessor');
$form->template = $templates->get('my_contact_form_template'); // required
$form->requiredFields = array('fullname', 'email');
$form->email = 'your@email.com'; // optional, sends form as email
$form->parent = $page; // optional, saves form as page
echo $form->render(); // draw form or process submitted form

5. Use CSS to style the fields. See below for a suggested starting point:

.Inputfields,
.Inputfields li {
list-style: none;
margin: 1em 0;
padding: 0;
}

.Inputfields li label {
font-weight: bold;
}

.Inputfields li p {
margin: 0;
}

.Inputfields li p.description {
font-style: italic;
}

.Inputfields textarea,
.Inputfields .InputfieldMaxWidth {
width: 100%;
}

.Inputfields .InputfieldSubmit label {
display: none;
}

.ui-state-error-text {
color: red;
}

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
