How would I go about putting a contact us form inside a widget? Is it possible to execute php on a form post from inside a widget? Or better yet, is it possible to use Silverstripe forms inside a widget?
You can do this I think
see how the login widget is created, and try to hack around it. [url]http://www.silverstripe.org/Log-in/[/url]
Heh, I made the login widget, which is just a hack itself.
It dosen't contain a Silverstripe form, but rather just submits to the Security controller I think.
This page tells you how to add a form to a widget:
Unfortunately it does not work in SS 2.3 yet...
Hey guys, I've now updated the widget forms docs with code that actually works. :D
I've tried to build a contact form widget based on this [url=http://www.silverstripe.org/widgets-2/show/265442#post265442]recipe[/url]. But I have some problems with the posting. I get the following error message:
There has been an error

I have created a topic wich includes [url=http://www.silverstripe.org/widgets-2/show/265442#post265442#post265442]my code here...[/url]
I would be pleased if some of you experts had some tips for me!! :)
Thomas have you solved your problem since hten ? i have the same kind of problem for my widget and I would enjoy any hints on how all of you guys managed to solve this issue. 'Been on this issue for over three weeks now, the clients are not gonna be very happy!!
No sorry, I gave up on that. But I am reading the SilverStripe book now so hope that will increase my understanding to find out of this among other challenges I've met developing in SS. Will post it in this thread then. :)
Have you managed to write a contact form widget yet?
