Hi,

you have two options, in the template or in the Content field in the CMS.

Did you mean User Defined Forms?

You can user $UserDefinedForm in the content area to state where the form is positioned so then you can add text under that $UserDefinedForm

o.k. its possible to make a unique template with

$Content1
$UserDefinedForm
$Content2

or a second template with

$Content1
$UserDefinedForm1
$Content2
$UserDefinedForm2

and a third template... and so on

what I mean is to define a userform and I can include this form with a placeholder in the normal textinput area at content like

[TinyMCE]
----------------------------------
Contact

Please fill out the contact form bla bla

$UserDefinedForm

or call me at 9am to 4pm blablabla
....
-------------------------------------------

thanks

.... I can´t understand the idea to change the Page-Type from Page to UseDefinedForm-Type? For the User or in the Frontend is this Page a "normal Page" with a small Form!

If I combine Text and Form and GMap and FieldListTable and Text and Gallery in one Page - ist this a "TextFormGMapTableTextGallery"-Page-Type with a superspecial unique Template??

hmmmm?? "Wag the Dog"

$UserDefinedForm1
$Content2
$UserDefinedForm2

UserDefinedForms doesn't support having multiple forms on 1 field. If you want content in the middle of a form you could always just make a 'HTMLBlock' field in your form - it accepts no user input on the front end but it was added so you could write a paragraph or 2 in the middle of a form.

Hi Willr,

o.k. its possible to insert any Textblocks with the UDForm.... I think, this is not enough flexible.

I´m a lot spoiled with Wordpress Modules e.g.
* cforms: http://www.deliciousdays.com/cforms-plugin/ [3 stars]
* Gravity: http://www.gravityforms.com/ [5 stars]

I looked at a other solution like http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=recipes:customising-content-in-your-templates

What can I do in function MyUDForm??

function Content() {
return str_replace('$MyUDForm', $this->MyUDForm(), $this->Content);
}

function MyUDForm() {
return ??? $UserDefinedForm ???;
}

Thanks helloworld
