If you want to be fully flexible, you have to implement your own forms. Of course, you can do it by relying on the ProcessWire API, but not the Form API of the backend.

EDIT: I forgot to bring your attention to this one:

Well if you are logged in and add a query param ?id=1001 to your url and in the template file you add

$content .= $modules->ProcessPageEdit->execute();

You'll get the full form markup rendered in your front-end. It even works saving the page out of the box. There's just (quite alot) the css and JS parts missing and maybe some other things that might not work down the road. 🙂 

After all it depends what you want to achieve with it and if it's secure etc. I would prefer a Iframe modal solution and just call $page->editUrl(). OR use something like FormBuilder, Fredi (modal solution) or Frontend Edit Core Feature.

This one is really nice...

https://gist.github.com/somatonic/5011926

Doesn't work with repeater on my test site. If that would work too it would be awesome and make sooo much easier.

 

Looked really nice.. but after clicking submit the page disappeared from the menu structure...  In the admin it was still editable - but at the settings of the page at status was written "corrupted" -> I think, the culprit is the image field..
First I thought that a custom fieldtype written by me... or other fields are the problem, so I added them to $ignorefields and tried to add them again field by field... everything went fine!!!

then... I tried to upload an image but this error came: Can’t save page 1610: /about/xxx/: Call $page->of(false);

then.. I uploaded an image in the admin... in the frontend view I did nothing, except clicking the submit button of the form -> and "page corrupted" appeared in the page status

      I have a few web forms which require testing on a weekly basis and I don't want the recipients (administrators) to receive these test emails.
      What would be a good way to test approx 15 forms from the front end and have the test delivered a list of secondary administrator recipients?
      I'm thinking that I could have some kind of config file which watches for a trigger word or email and then understands that it's a test and to bypass the normal admins?
      All of the forms ask for an email address so I could setup an email such as 'testform@email.not' etc which my config file (hook?) would watch for.
      Or is there a better way to do this?
      Additionally, I have a few extra requirements...
      Forms should goto an alternative success page. This is because I don't want my test to skew my Google Analytics conversion tracking Forms would need to be tested from the front-end and not the PW admin area Any advice appreciated.
      BTW I realise this should be posted in the proper FormBuilder support forum. I am in the process of renewing my license for access to that support forum.

      What is the best practice for having a form (only accessible to a logged in user) save the user's progress between sections of the form? Fieldsets? Multiple forms?
      Use case: I have a very long application form that would take 30 minutes for the applicant to fill out and I would hate for all progress to be lost due to user error. The progress needs to be logged into the user's page.
      Thanks!

      I'm trying to implement a front-end image upload form for user profile pictures, to a field called 'profile_picture'. The code is based on the various examples found around these forums but isn't yet 100% right.
      The form successfully submits the image to the server and updates the field in the dashboard. When you submit the firm, the page reloads and uploads the image but the template still loads the old image path (now broken path as the old image has been removed).
      I can only get the new image to show if I hit enter in the address bar forcing the page to reload.
      Any ideas? Is it a caching issue, or something to do with the order of the script? It makes no difference if I call the image after the upload form.
      <?php //Display current user image $userImg = $user->profile_picture->first(); echo '<img src="'.$userImg->url.'">'; $upload_path = $config->paths->assets . "files/avatar_uploads/"; $f = new WireUpload('userimage'); $f->setMaxFiles(1); $f->setMaxFileSize(1*1024*1024); $f->setOverwrite(true); $f->setDestinationPath($upload_path); $f->setValidExtensions(array('jpg', 'jpeg', 'png', 'gif')); if($input->post->form_submit) { if(!is_dir($upload_path)) { if(!wireMkdir($upload_path)) throw new WireException("No upload path!"); } $files = $f->execute(); if ($f->getErrors()) { foreach($files as $filename) @unlink($upload_path . $filename); foreach($f->getErrors() as $e) echo $e; } else { $user->of(false); $user->profile_picture->removeAll(); // wirearray (line added by @horst: explanation is three posts beneath) $user->profile_picture = $upload_path . $files[0]; $user->save(); $user->of(true); @unlink($upload_path . $files[0]); } } ?> <form class="forum-form" accept-charset="utf-8" action="./" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" > <input type="file" id="attach" name="userimage" accept="image/jpg,image/jpeg,image/gif,image/png" /> <input type="submit" name="form_submit" value="Submit"/> </form>

      Forms are an essential part of most websites, and it's no surprise that there's an excellent premium module Form Builder but what if you're on a zero budget for whatever reason?
      It is possible to build forms quickly and easily by making use of a couple of free modules and the admin UI to give you a great deal of flexibility and speed of development, particularly if you need multiple forms on a website with different fields.
      1. First you're going to need to install a couple of modules:
      Form Template Processor
      Fieldtype Select External Option
      2. For each form that you want to display, create a template without a template file and add fields to it as you normally would. (eg I have formContact, formRegister etc)
      Tip: under the Advanced tab in the setup for each template, I add a tag Forms so that all my forms templates are nicely grouped together in admin.
      3. Create a new field of type Select External Option and call it formTemplate
      In the section Create options from any database table select
      templates as the source table id as the Option Value name as the Option Label 4. Create a new template file and call it renderForm.php (or whatever else you like)
      Add an email field to this form - This will be the email address that forms get submitted to. Add the formTemplate field you previously created to this form. This will allow you to select which of the templates you previously created such as formContact, formRegister etc you want to render. Add any other fields as usual that you want to render on the page. Add the following PHP code to the template file. $recipient = $page->email; $form = $modules->get('FormTemplateProcessor'); $form->template = $templates->get($page->formTemplate->label); // required $form->requiredFields = array('contactName', 'contactEmail', 'contactMesssage'); //Optional: This can be improved by having a field in the page template with a CSV list of required fields eg $form->requiredFields = explode(',', $page->requiredFields) $form->email = $recipient; // optional, sends form as email. FormTemplateProcessor can also save forms to the database. $content .= $form->render(); //generate the form to display. Note: this doesn't actually render the form at this point, but you have it in the $content variable ready to output wherever you want in your template.
      Add any template HTML or other PHP code and echo $content; wherever you want to render the form.
      5. Create a page using the renderForm template, and provide an email address, and select a form that you want to display.
      6. Use CSS to style the form as required.
      7. View your new page, and check that the form renders correctly.
      8. You can modify the templates you created at step 2 or create new ones as required if your requirements for what fields forms display changes.
      Note: The Form Template Processor module can also save form input as pages, and the FieldType Select External Option can be set up with filtering, so this solution can probably be refined further.

      Hey all,
      Mods; please feel free to move this if it is in the incorrect place although I thought this was the best place for it.
      Kinda new to processwire but getting the hang of it....I am trying to build a payment form with the Stripe platform but failing miserably....I really hope someone can help!
      So I am building my form with the PW API and also following through this documentation here: https://stripe.com/docs/elements and here: https://stripe.com/docs/charges
      My form is pretty basic just for testing purposes right now:
      <form id="payment-form" class="pusher" name="payment-form" method="post" action="./#booking-form"> <?php $tokenName = $this->session->CSRF->getTokenName(); $tokenValue = $this->session->CSRF->getTokenValue(); echo '<input type="hidden" id="_post_token" name="' . $tokenName . '" value="' . $tokenValue . '"/>'; $out = ""; $out .= '<div id="card-number"></div> <div id="card-errors"></div>'; // create a new form field (also field wrapper) $form = $modules->get("InputfieldForm"); $form->action = "./"; $form->method = "post"; $form->attr("id+name",'payment-form'); // First Name $field = $modules->get("InputfieldText"); $field->skipLabel = true; $field->attr('id+name','name'); $field->attr('placeholder','Full Name'); $field->required = 1; $form->append($field); // append the field to the form // create email field $field = $modules->get("InputfieldEmail"); $field->attr('id+name','email'); $field->attr('placeholder','Email'); $field->required = 1; $form->append($field); // append the field // oh a submit button! $submit = $modules->get("InputfieldSubmit"); $submit->attr("value","SUBMIT"); $submit->attr("id+name","submit"); $submit->attr("class","cta white"); $form->append($submit); if($input->post->submit) { // user submitted the form, process it and check for errors $form->processInput($input->post); if($form->getErrors()) { // the form is processed and populated // but contains errors $out .= $form->render(); } else { foreach($input->post as $key => $value) echo htmlentities("$key = $value") . "<br />"; } } else { foreach($form->children as $input){ $out .= "<div class='col-sm-6'>{$input->render()}</div>"; } } echo $out; ?> </form> That alone works fine and returns all of the fields values after I click submit which is great...now we add the javascript:
      //Stripe var stripe = Stripe('pk_test_*****************'); var elements = stripe.elements(); // Custom styling can be passed to options when creating an Element. var style = { base: { // Add your base input styles here. For example: fontSize: '16px', lineHeight: '24px' } }; // Create an instance of the card Element var card = elements.create('card', {style: style}); // Add an instance of the card Element into the `card-element` <div> card.mount('#card-number'); card.addEventListener('change', function(event) { var displayError = document.getElementById('card-errors'); if (event.error) { displayError.textContent = event.error.message; } else { displayError.textContent = ''; } }); // Create a token or display an error when the form is submitted. var form = document.getElementById('payment-form'); form.addEventListener('submit', function(event) { event.preventDefault(); stripe.createToken(card).then(function(result) { if (result.error) { // Inform the user if there was an error var errorElement = document.getElementById('card-errors'); errorElement.textContent = result.error.message; } else { // Send the token to your server stripeTokenHandler(result.token); } }); }); function stripeTokenHandler(token) { // Insert the token ID into the form so it gets submitted to the server var form = document.getElementById('payment-form'); var hiddenInput = document.createElement('input'); hiddenInput.setAttribute('type', 'hidden'); hiddenInput.setAttribute('name', 'stripeToken'); hiddenInput.setAttribute('value', token.id); form.appendChild(hiddenInput); // Submit the form form.submit(); } This gives an error in the console: Uncaught (in promise) TypeError: form.submit is not a function. 
      This is because our submit input has the name "submit". Ok thats cool...I can change that but once I do the page essentially refreshes and the form just shows again and it doesnt give me the values it did before....I guess it isnt posting? either way after I submit the form after changing the name of the submit button the form just loads again and anything inside: if($input->post->submit) doesnt seem to execute...so what gives?
      If anybody here has done this before with PW 3+ I would really love an example of how to use this to the point of sending information to Stripe.
      I have installed Stripe with composer and it would appear that I can refer to it in Processwire just fine...my problem is just getting to the point where I need to refer to it which is after the submit.
      I have seen the PaymentStripe module but tbh the documentation on that is somewhat lacking and im not even sure it works with the latest version of stripe? Im also not sure how to integrate that into a form either unless you use something along the lines of the example code provided after the form has been submitted but I cant even seem to submit the form to even try that and im not really sure why.
      Here is the PaymentStripe module page for those wondering: https://modules.processwire.com/modules/payment-stripe/
      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
