I'm going to start building a site that needs some forms

An I really can't make a decision wheter I should use the userform module or the 'regular' form field.

For exemple if I have to set 2 field quantities and product and link them is it better to use userform or forms

Thanks for advice

It depends on whether the content author/admin needs to be able to create their own forms. The userforms module is for allowing non technical users to create their own forms via the backend. If you know what kind of forms you want on the site then you can go ahead and code them using the Form class. However if you want the site admin to have the ability to create forms on the site then download the userforms module and install that on the site.
