Problem with UserForms Module

I made an update to silverstripe 2.3.1 an found that userforms has to be integrated as module.

So I downloaded from trunk (yes, and renamed to 'userforms' in the SilverS-Root-Dir) and started /dev/build.

Now I find new page-type user-defined-form and can create.

=> BUT the "Form"-Tab only shows this two rows at the beginning
=> MISSING the area where to drop the fields (as shown on the picture of the module-page and as I saw in SilverS 2.2)

* Add: * Text * Checkbox * Dropdown * Radio * Email * Heading * Date * File * Checkboxes * Member List
* Add: * Text * Checkbox * Dropdown * Radio * Email * Heading * Date * File * Checkboxes * Member List

(Javascript is enabeld. All other things work.)

I installed a new Instances, same result everytime :-(
Do you have any ideas ?

Thanks a lot for helping.

Mine seems to be missing the stylesheet ever since I upgraded to 2.3 and used the module. Just a bunch of unstyled links in lieu of the buttons that used to be there. Anyone else?

i'm having the same problem here, the GUI (drag an drop items, fields, etc) doesn't work, i only read text labels. When i click on them, nothing happens...

I don't you know if you (CriaturaCreativaStudio) were having the same issue (the Form tab is there and you can see the type of fields to add but when you clicked them nothing happens....) .

The thing was it was not loading the FieldEditor.js file which animates this panel and it was because I placed userforms folder under mysite folder.

|--> /mysite
|--> /userforms

Instead, put it on the same level as your site folder

|--> /mysite
|--> /userforms

Once this is done, run /dev/build again

I hope this works

Hmm.. yeah, it certainly doesn't belong in the mysite folder. I've got it in the right place. Nice to know it's a JS issue, though. At least now I know where to look.

Rename the module folder to 'userforms' and locate it in the root directory (not mysite).

Done the trick for me anyway!

The JS is embedded:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://localhost/myproject/userforms/javascript/FieldEditor.js?m=1229310604"></script>
And "userforms" (renamed to) is in the root-directory of the Installation.

.. but still not working.
