Hi there, I am a new user to Silverstripe and have questions about forms. I am not a coder, and am using the front end interface. My question is, am I correct in assuming Silverstripe 2.4.0 does not allow you to embed forms? Everytime I paste the code, it disappears when I go back to it in the html section. Is this in the next version or upgrade?

Thanks! M

Hi Mare, welcome to the forums,

Do you mean pasting the form HTML into the (TinyMCE) editor? If so, no that won't work in SilverStripe - and I'm almost certain there are no plans to implement that in later releases..

You can paste html using the html button located on the editor's toolbar.
However the editor cleans out tags that it doesn't like (read: are disabled in the configuration), eg. script tags & forms.

Install the UserForms module to be able to create your own basic forms.
However if you're wanting something more advanced, you're either going to have to code, or find someone who can.
