New Feature: Custom Forms
We just added a much-requested feature: you can now easily create forms with any fields you want, and have the information submitted through those forms added to your database. The person who filled in the form gets a confirmation email, and the site admin gets a notice that there’s a new submission ready to be moderated.
After approving and optionally editing the data, the site admin can make it part of the site’s public information. So you have a direct, but moderated, connection between your users and your database.
For some time, we’ve had the capability for site admins to enter data for custom database items, with automatically generated forms, but you haven’t been able to take input from site visitors (other than through the contact form and comments). There are countless applications for this capability, from membership applications to directory submissions.
For details on how to use this feature, see the new User’s Gude article:
