Devide Standard Form Block Into Sections With Other Blocks In between
I want to create a form that has a static image, and a static iframe in between form fields. The end result should look like this:
My proposed solution:
Is there a way to modify the standard form block to make this happen? I thought there might be a way to create a custom templates for the "first section" of the form (include begin form tags <form>, and field options), an template for the "middle section" (including form field options) and lastly a template for the "last section" (including form field options, submit button, and closing form tags </form>). If this is possible, i could create a block for the first part of my form, add a image block, add the middle part of my form, add an html block (with ifram code), then add my last for block using the custom templates.
I tried "advanced forms" it does not have the options I need.
ProForms is a good option an am trying now.
Open to other options:
If anyone has a better suggestion or way of doing this I would appreciate that feedback as well.
Thanks in advance!
The submit button code is generated from the core: [webserver]/concrete5/concrete/core/controllers/blocks/form_minisurvey.php --- on line 186
I was hoping it was generated from:
Is there anyway to modify the core with custom templates? I'm guessing no.
I like the idea of a QuestionType for ProForms though..."block area". That would be cool. I may add that to ProForms. Very easy to do so.
The only other issue I was having with ProForms is my question fields keep moving around. When I create a single form I am fine. When I start applying duplicate questions to other forms, the questions in my original form get moved and unorganized.
One other thing I noticed is that the "delete form" functionality was not working.
Overall ProForms is a very well made, useful, and exciting add-on. I apologize if my original post was a bit snarky.
I have not heard of the multiple form questions re-arranging issue. Make sure you report that in the support area.
The delete form does work. It's possible you were trying to delete the package installed form...which you can not. There was a practical reason why at one point....although I do not remember off hand what that was! I will look into it.
Yes I was trying to delete the sample form. Thanks for the explanation! No big deal if I can't delete.
The "add block feature" is great!! Thanks again for adding it.
I look forward to helping improve this add-on and thanks again for your help.
A. Output a form block.
B. Output a content or html block with your in-between text.
C. Output some jQuery to move (B) to where you want it between elements in (A).
Thanks in advance.
EDIT - this functionality is now provided by Magic Data Forms, see post at
