Strategy for form creation in page edit

Recommended Posts

Hi, Looking to create form elements on a page–some input with a colection of form inputs and the appropriate labels and variables for that input. I've used ProForms in the past and rolled out my own when creating simply one off forms, but I wonder if anyone has found a good way of allowing form creation on page editing so that clients can adhocly make and edit forms?

Thanks

Sorry that this isn't really an answer to your question, but I have been contemplating this idea a lot over the past few weeks. I have played around with using a page reference field that chose from a page labeled "Forms" so the user could simply select what form elements they wanted to use. However, this got a bit messy as they constantly wanted something different and I would have to make special inputs/labels just for them. It really just became a pain in the backside for myself to have to constantly update the selections. 

I guess my big hurdle is the form processing part, as each form could be different, I don't really know how to dynamically choose the form elements to send off/process. I apologize if I appear to be piggybacking off of your question, but I think the 2 go hand in hand.

no problem at all. You gave me an idea actually, maybe we could try ProFields:Tables and setup a simple set of fields for each form element–might contrains the types of inputs you could use but might be a start... maybe wth a set of defaults that can be stored somewhere else.

@benbyf Actually wondering on this myself. I fell in love with Processwire because it was easy to organize the data and fields. But when it comes to giving users a different place (other than the ProcessWire platform itself), I'm at a limbo. Not a pro-programmer neither ProcessWire. 

Any leads would be helpful.

      So I ran into a very strange issue today. I have a template with a pagetable and I went to add an item to it, when I went to select an image (for an image field) the page instantly threw up an error
      "ProcessPageSearchLive: No search specified"
      The page's content also switched to the image attached. This all worked perfectly last week (local mamp box). Has anyone experienced this before, and how did you solve it?

      Hi everyone, 
      Is there a way for us to replicate the "http://mydomain.com/processwire/page/edit/?id=xxx" and change the template to match my site template? 
      I'm terribly happy with the admin / backend page edit. It covers literaly everything I want to empower my non super admin user in updating pages such as validation, repeater management, file upload. 
      I wish not to allow the users to see the backend for both security and aesthetic reasons. 
      Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

      Hello dear PW gurus.

      I have stumbled over a strange error that i all of sudden got when trying to upload an image to a images field on a page.
      There where images allready stored in the field that i wanted to keep, but during the upload the error apear and after that all images are gone from the field and i can´t upload any, i just get the error every time.
      I am running ProcessWire 3.0.153 dev.
      Update:
      After looking in the assets folder i find the folder for the page and the image files seems to be there including the ones i tried to upload when the error occured.
      But they don´t show up in the images field in the page editor.
       
      The error reported:
       
      SQLSTATE[01000]: Warning: 1265 Data truncated for column 'ratio' at row 1 And here is a screenshot of the event:

      The TracyDebugger Error reporting:

      I hope you fine folks could point me in a direction.
      But it seems our old pal set_time_limit() is back.

      Regards, EyeDentify
