Does anyone has experience with implementing a functionality like adding form fields for a specific page directly in the backend?
I think it would be nice to handle this with a dropdown to select the field type (textfield, selectbox, checkbox, captcha, ...) and the name, options, required field and default value etc.
Thx for your ideas or recommendations

EDIT: I've found a good base! In the newsletter subscription form (Newsletter module) you can edit the form fields and drag them in the order you like. You can also set the name, default error message and if it's required.
