Basics of including a (contact) form in (F2C) articles.
A form created in RSForms and included via the rsforms plugin into an article works great. There is however a problem that if the same form is shown in many articles the webmaster will want to know in which article the form was submitted. This is solved by including a field and script which calls and submits the article title into the form. Please visit this link to the RSForms documentation ()for more info.
