    Beginner question about userforms-v010 Link to this post

    Hi, I'm just starting out on SilverStripe but really enjoying it so far.

    I've just installed the userforms-v010 module and I can't get it to work. I have assigned my Contact Us page Behaviour as a User Defined Form page and the Form tab doesn't look like the screenshot on the Forms module documentation.

    Here is what it looks like: http://www.robcubbon.com/files/my-form.png
    Those links Text, Checkbox, Dropdown, just go to # and don't do anything

    I have $Form in my templates/Layout/Page.ss

    Any ideas as to what I've done wrong?

    I've found the answer elsewhere in the forums.

    Basically, any module or widget you install must be installed in the SilverStripe root directory (same level as mysite, cms, themes, etc.) and you must remove the version number from the end of the directory name (that results from decompressing the tar archive) and then do the build.

    e.g. you download ecommerce "ecommerce-v0.5.2.tar.gz", put it in the website root (if that's where SS is installed) decompress it and you end up with a folder called "ecommerce-v0.5.2" rename the folder to "ecommerce", run http://www.mysite.com/dev/build and you're done.

    So delete the numbers after the userforms name of the directory and do a http://www.mysite.com/dev/build and it works!
