Hello. I hope you're all right. I wanted to ask you how can display the input mask of the Form Creator as soon as you click on New Topic without to show Button "Form Creator".

I want to have the same process like support ticket.After clicking on the button "New topic" it will appear the input mask.

Thanks :beers:
Bye Jan

It's one form per forum...

I don't think there is a way to assign a form to several forums, apart from creating the same form in different forums.

I mean creating FORM X to forum X

Form Y to forum Y

Yes, that's what this does. In the ACP you select the forum you wish to work on, and then build the form.

Select a different forum and you build a different form, etc.

I have found an issue with this otherwise really promising extension.

Suppose a user creates a new topic. He starts wrtiting a few words, then realises there is a Form Mode button. Presses that, fills in all the fields and presses submit.

If there is even a single character left in the post editor before you go to form mode, that single character is the only thing that will appear and the entire form is ignored.

This would be especially problematic if you would want to use this in a board that also has a topic template set up.

Hello....i have create an issue on github: https://github.com/dmzx/Form-Maker-Creator/issues/5

Do you want to view the template immediately after clicking the New Topic button? Then change this:

Go to:

styles/prosilver/template/forms/form_maker.html

Search:

Line 20

Delete:

display:none;

Now after clicking on "New Topic" you will see Form Creator without to click any Button once again.

Special Thanks to user kasimi who give me the tip.

Bye Jan

Deleting the display:none is not showing my form automatically. Any ideas?

Thank you for this extension! I had one quick question -- is it possible to REQUIRE users to use the form view to submit topics to the forum? Thank you.

Were you able to solve it? I'm having a similar issue... after deleting the "display:none;" and cleaning the cache I get both, the "form mode" and the "normal mode", please see the image:

Great extension and does what I need. Only issue so far is once I use the form for a new topic clicking Reply doesn't allow you to use the form again on the same topic.
