Questions answered by this recipe
- How can I create a form in PmWiki to send mail?
The pmform.zipΔ module provides a variety of forms processing capabilities. The module is still under development.
Documentation and examples for PmForm are being performed in a separate wiki group at PmForm. Some key pages:
- PmForm:MailForm - forms to send email
PmForm blocks directives from data being saved to pages by converting markups: thus "(:" becomes "( :" and ":)" becomes ": )". These are managed by the $PmFormPostPatterns array.
(:template require:) directive can be used to
prevent certain string combinations from appearing in
posted fields. For example, to prevent someone from
entering link markups, use:
(:template require text match=-[[ errmsg="links not allowed":)
which says that the 'text' field must not contain "[[".
The recipe requires pmwiki-2.2.56 or later.
