UO Blogs: Submission Form Creator

The Submission Form Creator Plugin allows you to insert contact forms into your blog posts or pages.

After activating Submission Form Creator, you will be able to edit the settings for the plugin by going to Settings > DDFM-Main. 

To edit the settings for each form, go to Settings > DDFM-1 (for each instance created, you will see another DDFM-* option listed. For example, if you have 2 instances created, you will see DDFM-1 and DDFM-2). This is where you can choose what your survey will look like, where it will appear, who to send results to, etc.

After you have edited the form, you will then need to insert it into your post or page.

  1. Go to the page or post you would like the form to appear
  2. Edit the page or post
  3. On your visual editor, click on the Text tab 
  4. Insert <!-- ddfm1 --> (the number will correspond to the instance you are wanting to show)
  5. Publish or update your page/ post. 

If you are having troubles with this plugin and creating a form, UO Blogs has another form creation plugin that is more user friendly. See UO Blogs: Formidable Plugin.
