Hello,

I want to make a page with a form. For this, I followed the User Help for Content Editors. The form help states you have to create a new page and choose 'User defined form' as the page type.
Unfortunately, 'User defined form' is not appearing in my list of page types, and others are missing too, seeing from the screenshot in the user help.
I got 4 types in total: Page, Error page, Redirector page and Virtual page.

Does anyone know what could have caused this and how to solve it? It's a near fresh installation of 3.1.8
I have only modified a few pages yet.

Hi PlayJoy,

Thats very interesting.
The documentation on that form page does not explain that the User Forms add-on needs to be installed.

Check out the link below:
https://github.com/silverstripe/silverstripe-userforms

That should give you everything you need to add the add-on.

Regards,

HI helenclarko,

Thank you for your response.
I noticed it a couple of days ago, and it has taken me already to my next issue.
The flush=all or flush=1 urls, as described in http://addons.silverstripe.org/add-ons/silverstripe/userforms didn't solve the issue for me.

I have followed all instructions on the page above, but I am afraid I am missing something again.

I have it working, finally. I will explain here for other users who encounter the same issue.

The 'dev/build' part described in http://addons.silverstripe.org/add-ons/silverstripe/userforms is not some shell command, it's an url
You need to append it to your site url.
www.yoursite.com/dev/build will build your database.
Then the pagetype appears...
