Not sure why that is happening.

Are you trying to install Easy Forms for the first time?

What vBulletin version are you running?

Key:
1. Single Line Text Field
2. Yes/No Question
3. Radio Buttons
4. Checkboxes
5. Dropdown Select
6. Multi-Line Text Field
8. Field using vBulletin Editor
10. Custom
11. Date
12. Address
13. Scale
14. Grid

Probably a silly question but I truly dont see anything that says attach file.
Unfortunately attachments cannot be added to email due to restrictions of the vbulletin email function vbmail();

I have 2 other questions:

1) How can I pull data from the form and put it inside the signature? For example, let's say I ask what his favorite icecream is and he answers vanilla => how do I put "vanilla" in his signature right under the link to the thread that was just created?

2) How do I force users from a certain usergroup to fill in the form before they can proceed? I'm using Force Threads but it doesn't work with a form because forced threads uses thread ids. Tried htaccess redirect but that's an endless loop. How would you got about forcing a usergroup to fill in the form before proceeding?

Thanks!
1. Use $q['1'] where 1 is the question hash

2. Umm that would be quite complex, you're best bet would be to modify Force Threads to redirect to a url rather than a threadid

Does anybody know how to get the form pages working with the 'Everywhere Sidebar' mod? I've tried following the instructions on that page, but to no avail.

I've not managed to read all 1116 posts, but maybe someone could answer (hopefully) a simple question for me.

Could this mod be used to run a Book Review forum section? I'm looking for a mod that will use a form to filled out to start a new thread. The form would fill in and make the first post of that new thread. Other users could then reply to that thread as if it was a normal thread anywhere else on the site.

Thank you for your time and help.

Yes, that would be really easy to achieve with this modification.

I searched the thread - is it possible to create a form that creates a calendar entry instead of a post, and if so how?

The form in question would of course have required fields like date, time, etc.

Thanks! Fantastic addon.

I don't think the URL redirect keeps any values intact.

This is an amazing mod. Simple to use.

I had an immediate need for this on my forum last weekend and the form (a help form for a school district) and the response has been very positive and teachers are getting the help they need.

Thank you!
