Hi all, I've got this problem where I cannot add a field to the user defined form. If I click on a field, such as a text box, nothing happens. The page remains the same and no field is added to the form. We have used previous versions of SilverStripe and this never happened.

Can anyone help?

If you are using 2.3 , make sure you use the latest version of userforms.

I'm using version 0.1.0.

Is that the latest?

Yeah, that is the latest.

Works for me , using 2.3.0 ....

How can I work out why it's not working?

In order for the userforms addon to work properly you must change one of two things.

  • Rename the folder to userforms from userforms-v0.1.0
  • OR
  • Edit the _config.php file in the userforms-v0.1.0 folder to point the javascript and css files to the userforms-v0.1.0 directory.

The module now allows me to add fields.

However, the new problem that arises is that the form that arrives via email has no contents.

There is a subject, but nothing in the email.

Also the submissions page is empty.

Any suggestions how to fix this?

I'm having the same issue with being unable to add fields. My folder is named userforms and everything appears to be in order as far as I can tell from what Novabomb said. I click the fields to add them, but nothing happens. I've attached a screenshot. Any help is greatly appreciated.
