    making advanced forms Link to this post

    i am trying to use SS to build a department website for the group i work for. i am looking to build more complex forms than what is available through the admin pages, but dont want to spend time learning php to that level. i wanted a framework that would deal with the code and let me generate content.

    i find that i mostly get a "column of fields" as the form template is limited to that. it does not seem that i can have more that one field (be it any kind of field) on the same line, so no "rows of fields". say i wanted a textbox with associated checkboxes on the same line. this cant be done, as far as i can tell.

    i also see that the text associated with radio buttons is not next to the radio button, but two carriage-returns below the button and interfering with the next radio button. i had three in total, if that makes a difference.

    is there a module or something of the sort that will allow me to generate a more aesthetically pleasing and logically thought out form than the default? i am running the newest (v2.2.3) version linked to on the front page of this site.

    Thank in advance

    it will be easy to create a new page type and to do this.

    I personally do that if I have to do any complex forms,

    this will help you to create one.
