    Contact Form in a Widget Link to this post

    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. http://www.silverstripe.org/Log-in/

    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:
    http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=widgets:forms&s=widget%20form

    Unfortunately it does not work in SS 2.3 yet...

    I've tried to build a contact form widget based on this recipe. But I have some problems with the posting. I get the following error message:
    Website Error
    There has been an error

    The website server has not been able to respond to your request.

    I have created a topic wich includes my code here...

    I would be pleased if some of you experts had some tips for me!!

    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.
