So for a while I was content with the "thanks" submit redirect, but recently I decided to make my own webpage that it would redirect to. I tried entering it into the text box several times, but each time I clicked save I would be sent to a "This page can't be displayed", like it just didn't like what I was giving it. I would then try again and it would be back to the "thanks" option.

Any ideas?

EDIT:
This is strange. I got it to work with a URL by deleting what was in the Subject text box. I had
Quote{Forum}'s Forum Moderator Application
, but until I deleted the {Forum} part of the Subject, it wouldn't work.

Does anyone know how I can get the input (like {Forum}) to work in the subject line?

The forms do not show on 2.0.6 with Pretty URLS is this due to that Mod also the menu item doesnt appear either to be able to choose the forms in the main menu

Kindred

probably is due to the mod... pretty urls is much more trouble than benefit, IMO... it certainly provides NO SEO benefit...

Okay I have removed that and it still doesnt show the menu button over at http://geckogenetics.com/index.php [nofollow]

Also there is no forms in the list even though one has been defined when i goto index.php?action=form

Arantor

I don't recall this mod ever actually adding menu items...

I dunno then...  it seems to work properly for me...
http://www.40konline.com/index.php?action=form [nofollow]

Can you access the form directly?
http://geckogenetics.com/index.php?action=form;n=1 [nofollow]

Yup now it seems to show however if you are not an admin and select the forms button on the menu it redirects back to the main page you can see it loading the URL then it doesnt :/

I'm attempting to use your mod to create a World of Warcraft Guild Application form and have successfully done so. How ever I want to protect players applying to my guild from praying eyes who may or may not react badly to the thought of their player leaving their guild.

I'd like to setup some privacy so that only current guild members and the thread creator can see the thread, and reply to it to give a little back and forth before applying or declining the application.

Any ideas?

Kindred

So, have the thread posted to a board which is limited access to only existing members

How would the applicant reply to comments on his applications if he wasn't an existing member to see the board he posted in?

Kindred

ah.... that is more complicated -- and there is no good way to do that at all.

What you are looking for is not the custom form mod, but the SimpleDesk mod...

bleh... I'll check something else...

Except that it's designed to handle such cases and has all kinds of custom field options.

awww, i'm sorry bud, i just don't need the sports package when i'm just strolling down the road. Know what I mean?

Kindred

Actually, I don't know what you mean.


What you described is SPECIFICALLY the sort of thing that SimpleDesk was designed to do.

SimpleDesk lets me create an application form with various questions the user needs to answer, and then turns that form into a post that only the thread creator and specific user groups can see and comment on?
