RSForm PRO and Form2Content

compat f2c litecompat f2c pro RSForm (Pro) is a great and popular contact form extension. It can also be integrated into Joomla articles using their rsform plugin. In this example we will show a generic way of adding it to your F2C generated articles.

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 (compat icon 1 5)for more info.

This way you can include a GENERIC contact form into all your F2C articles and still know from which page the form was send.

Including the RSForm plugin into the Form2Content template

Including the RSForm plugin into the F2C template is very easy. Simply include:

{ldelim}rsform 1{rdelim}

in the template file where you would like to show it (1 being the rsform ID). Don't forget to install and publish the RSForm plugin!
