Hi Willr and UncleCheese
Thanks, changed folder name to "userforms". It was originally "userforms-v0.2.0". Havent fully checked it out, but I am getting a response much closer to that which I would expect, i.e. a control appears on the page.
I was following the new "SilverStripe The complete guide to CMS Development" book which I purchased from Fishpond and arrived early this week. On page 96 it says to follow the module installation procedure on page 58 (section 3.5.3).
The installation procedure (page 58) states" Installing both modules and widgets is fairly easy: just copy a new folder into your webroot and let SilverStripe do its magic" Unfortunately, in this case at least, SilverStripe does not do all of the magic required!.
I had also looked at the userforms README. There is just states, "Extract the userforms folder into the top level of your site and visit http://www.mysite.com/dev/build to rebuild the database."
Unfortunately, it is "little" errors like this that make learning something like SilverStripe very frustrating, almost to the point of once again giving up. (I previously tried a year ago, but due to lack of adequate documentation I gave up. I thought the book would make a difference. )
Can I suggest immediate solutions would to be to add to the README that the folder must be renamed, and correcting the book on its next reprint. (Is it in the errata website? I dont know as I didnt look.)
In the meantime, thanks very much for the assistance. Now I can carry on with my learning curve.
