Hi, I just installed this module:

I installed it okay, it's coming up in the CMS, but when I go the page (it's a contact page) I don't see any form.

Do I have to call the form from my template? If so using what keywords? also, can I call it from within the CMS itself like putting a keyword in the content area?

Thank you!

Your template must include a $Form variable.

If you want to nest the form inside the content field then you can write $UserDefinedForm in the CMS and the form will be inserted at this point but this has a couple issues so the best idea is to include a $Form in your template (which it should have anyway for login forms etc).
