Configuration

The Configuration tab provides a centralized area where you can control general aspects for the overall component. By default, this is divided into two tabs, Settings, Update and Calculations. Note that, when installing RSForm!Pro plugins for example, some of them will add additional tabs with their own configurable options(these tabs are explained in the according plugin documentation). The tabs' ordering depends on the order in which the plugins were installed.

Settings tab
  • Enable Syntax Highlighting: used to highlight the syntax used in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and PHP script areas.
  • Date Mask(for Date Submitted): the date mask that will be used when displaying the date of the submissions. It defaults to "Y-m-d H:i:s", any other formats are explained here.
  • Google API Key: All Google services require an API key starting with June 22nd, 2016. See the Google Developers Console for more details on obtaining an API key.
 
Security tab
  • XSS Filtering: this is in charge of modifying the submitted data so that XSS attacks cannot be performed on your website when displaying the data. Usually, Joomla! filtering should be enough, but if this produces errors, please set to use RSForm!Pro's internal filtering. Please disable the option ONLY if you know what you are doing.
  • Allow unsafe files: Setting this to Yes will allow potentially unsafe files to be uploaded through RSForm!Pro. This will attempt to scan uploaded archives for .php files as well as deny any .php files to be uploaded if set to No.
 
Backup tab
  • Pause between requests (seconds): specify a pause between AJAX requests; some servers might need this in order to avoid being flagged by their firewall as an attacker
  • Default backup filename: specify the backup filename (without specifying an extension). You can also use the following placeholders: {domain} - for the domain name and {date} - for the current date.
 
Calculations tab (regards the Calculations feature)
  • Thousands separator: Set the character that will be used as a thousands separator
  • Decimal separator: Set the character that will be used as a decimals separator

You don't need to use them all so you can always hardcode the values if you need to do so, eg. {product} ${price}
  • Total Price Mask: This is how the total price will be shown in the frontend. Please use the following placeholders: {price} shows the price and {currency} shows the currency. You don't need to use them all so you can always hardcode the values if you need to do so, eg. ${price}
