In this class, you'll learn to create forms in Drupal using the Webform module. Webforms is the best module for accepting any user submissions, from contact forms to event registration.Here's what we'll cover in this class:
- In-depth look at the available field types
- Multi-page forms
- Conditional fields that display/hide if certain criteria is met
- Private fields that admins can see but users can not
- How to use webforms for both internal and external communication
I got back into Drupal about a year before Drupal 7 was released, so I built a couple of sites in Drupal 6. Then in January I completely switched over to D7 when it was released. Because I decided to make the switch right away, I was running into a lot of bugs/issues that hadn't been resolved yet. So, I started to make videos helping other people with the problems I found.
With the videos I made, I realized that I had shown some solutions, but people still had a lot of questions about edge cases. That was when I saw the light, and had the idea to put together series of short videos covering different topics. This format allowed me go in-depth with each module. I'm glad to be sharing these videos on OSTraining!
