    UserDefined Form - Alternate Template Link to this post


    I need a separate TEMPLATE for my form; I.e.: other than Page.ss, for reasons too complicated and boring to go into. SO-- I have followed a forum member's advice and created a new pagetype ("ContactForm[.php]") which extends UserDefinedForm and rebuilt my database and change the pagetype to the new one. My form is all still there in the CMS so I know the extends is working fine.

    I also then created my ContactForm.ss template, and coded my special layout. The template is being accessed and used (showtemplate=1). So we're good there. However, for some very frustrating reason, the form I built inside the CMS is not showing up! Although $Content is benig picked up, $Form seems to have NO effect.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance,

    class YourFormPageType extends UserDefinedForm {

    static $add_action = 'my page type';

    // Any other custom code
