External form, tutorial?

Permalink
Hi everyone,

I am looking for a clearcut tutorial on how to make an external form and implement it into my C5 site.

I am running version 5.6.3 and would like to try this out.

The reason is that I have a custom designed form that I would like to implement and style, using CSS3/html5 with "placeholders" and so forth.

Are there any guides/tutorials that you know of?

You do not need an external form, use the 'default' C5 form and give it HTML5/CSS3 'placeholders' and styling. All styling can implemented through the themes CSS.

If you need a bit CSS code, let me know.

Hi steevb,
Would it be wise to make a copy of the view.php in the standard form, and then perform the placeholder changes afterwards? Also I need some of the text fields to float so I am thinking that I might end up doing some deconstruction, in the view.php file anyways.
So would you recommend to save a copy of the original, before starting this work?

Morning,
Cannot remember where I got this form from, but it should help, see attached.

Unzip and drop the 'form' folder into your top level 'blocks' folder.

If you want to experiment further you could create a new folder inside 'form' called 'templates' and add new php files.
