Introduction to PresideCMS form builder

presidecms drag and drop form builder

If your blog / web site is missing out a customized forms (contact us, restaurant booking forms, car rental forms, newsletters subscribing forms..etc ), then you are missing out lot of opportunities every day. Just adding contact mail ID in your website will not solve this problem & but it will add more problem like getting spam mails from email harvesters. Form builder is an essential feature of a Content management system or blogging engine. But few of very famous open source projects such as wordpress don't have a form builder feature built-in. But PresideCMS provides an awesome drag and drop feature rich form builder module, that enables content administrators to build input forms to gather submissions from their site users.

Hope you know about Preside CMS (Great CFML open source by Pixl8) already. If not, Please check with Preside CMS Official site and Preside CMS Official documentation.Unlike other open source projects, PresideCMS have very good documentation & instant response on their official slack channel.

PresideCMS introduced form builder as feature from version 10.5.0, Form Builder is the easy way to create our own forms for the PresideCMS application. There are lots of features available on it like support for all form fields, google's recaptcha, managing submitted details etc.

In PresideCMS, form builder is disabled by default. We can enable the feature through Config.cfc as follows.

 component extends="preside.system.config.Config" {
    public void function configure() {
        super.configure();
        // ...
        // To enable form builder feature
        settings.features.formbuilder.enabled = true;
        // ...
    }
}

We may need to re-initialize the PresideCMS application using ?reinit=true, in order to make the changes affected.
