form with post function

  1. is it possible to make the post go online right away, not safe as a draft?
    I have a closed site members only and they can post right away.

    I have never made a post form before, the upload picture funktion works, but how must I setup a function or ? to make it end up in the post? and not only in the media library?

  2. Yes, you can make the post that is created get published immediately. The Post Status is a setting on both the Post Title and Post Body fields. Edit either your Post Title or Post Body field on your form and set the Post Status option to Published. They both have this setting but changing it on one changes it on the other so you just need to edit one of them.

    If you want a Post Image to be inserted into the Post Body content you need to use a Post Body field, edit the Post Body field and then turn on the Content Template functionality and configure the content template. The content template is similar to the Notification configuration... you use form field variables to insert values.

    If you use the Content Template functionality you must be sure to insert the Post Body form field itself into the Content Template... otherwise it won't be included. Whatever is in the content template is what will be used to create the Post Body content.

  3. Hi Carl, thanks a lot I needed this kick, now everything works perfect!
    I had to put it like this to make a link out of the uploadet file:
    <a href="{Datei Upload:5}" target="_blank">{Datei Upload:5}</a>

    or can i make it more simple?

    If I need to make the possibility to upload 2 files it looks stupid if they only upload 1, with this solution.

  4. Yes, that is currently the only option. The content templates do not currently support conditional statements. In the future we would like to add conditional statements so that will only output that line if a field value exists. But that will have to wait for a future release.
