    Create a User Defined Form Link to this post

    Hi, I am brand new to SilverStripe and have just installed it. I am currently working through the help topics that concern the features that I wish to add to my website. I want to add a user defined form but when i click on 'Create' and scroll down for 'user defined form' the option isnt available. All I have are 'page', 'Redirector page', 'Error page' and 'Virtual Page'.
    Do I have to install something first or update to receive the other options?

    Any help is appreciated

    Thanks
    Chipie

    Thanks for that. If I have this correct then, if i want to add any new feature such as a blog or picture gallery, then i should be installing a module for it first?

    Thanks again for help

    Yes that if you want to extend the system with modules, you need to install them.
    Or you can code them - this is why people choose silverstripe not for it's module to theme library - but it's ability to be customised thorught coding.

    Hi installed the module I want but read something about dev/build/ could you explain what I have to do exactly.
    I am running the website on a local webserver.

    Thanks

    That video is brilliant solved a lot of problems for me.
    I have been trying to rebuild the database but keep getting an error, page not found.
    I have installed silverstripe files into a folder called caseproject.
    http://localhost/caseproject/dev/build?flush=1

    Any ideas?

    could be because you don't have mod_rewrite turned on...

    try turing it on (wamp -> apache -> apache modules -> scroll and tick rewrite_module)
    or try using the index.php to fake it... http://localhost/caseproject/index.php?/dev/build?flush=1
