Plugin - Content (Display the form in an article)

The RSForm!Pro Content Plugin allows you to publish a form inside a content item.

Downloading and Installing the plugin
 
Download

You can download the plugin by logging with your purchase user, then head to My Downloads > RSForm!Pro - Modules & Plugins > Plugins > "RSForm!Pro Content" plugin.

Install

In the backend area go to the Extensions > Manager > Install page, and install the plugin. Next thing is to publish the plugin from Extensions > Plugins, search for the "System - RSForm! Content" plugin.

Setting up the syntax

Open a Joomla! article you want from the Content > Article Manager, and type {rsform 1} for example.

 

Pre-fill form fields

You can also pre-fill your fields from the syntax and your form will load with the specified values, for eg (whereas fieldName is the exact name of your field, case sensitive and fieldValue, the desired value you want to pre-fill your field):

{rsform 1 fieldName="fieldValue" textbox="textboxValue" radioGroup="someValue" checkbox="cat" checkbox="dog"}

 

Note: when pre-filling, depending on the field you need to take into consideration:

  • textboxes, textareas - simply add the desired value
  • radio, dropdown - the value you add has to actually exist in your field
  • checkboxes or multiple dropdowns - besides using existing values, when selecting multiple values, you'll have to separately specify their values one at a time as in the above screenshot
 
Retrieving the Form ID

The Form ID can be found by accessing your admin panel and going under Components > RSform!Pro > Manage Forms > notice the last column as illustrated within the screenshot.

 
Testing the form

After setting up the content plugin syntax, you can now access the front-end area of your site, the form will be added in the chosen article.

In this example, the values of our form fields have been pre-filled using the above mentioned syntax.
