A flexible, extensible, parameter driven system to support the use of form pages within PmWiki.
To achieve this goal the FormGuideSystem (FGS) uses two php scripts.
Installation, Setup and Usage
Basic First-Time Installation/Configuration (runs with PmWiki Beta28 ONLY!)
Note: FGS may be installed in either a local or farm setup. References that follow to the cookbook or wiki.d folders may be consider as either local or as a farm.
Download the above zip file and extract it to a working directory.
FGS will attempt to create a directory called "formguides"
This directory needs to have the same permissions as wiki.d
You may need to manually create this directory and set the permissions
Once this directory is setup, try the "prepform" link again.
When FGS is working correctly, clicking the "prepform" link on one of the "Design-.." pages will cause FGS to prepare a formguide and then link to and open for editing the PmWiki page set by the attach instruction on that "Design-.." page.
At this point you can...
would open an existing or a new page with the associated form attached to group/WikiPage.
A good idea, in fact I was also already thinking about somthing like that. As I understand the form can be used page based. Would make sense if one form could be used for a whole group. Klonk
I'm interested in trying this out, but I don't see a zip file to download. Did I miss it? KeithCampbell
Hi, it seems to be interesting...please let us know how we can download the zip file. Claudio
Looking for some love here! No file to download, so I assume this recipe is dead. Webster
