How can we improve our stacks and plugins?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Possible use of a PostgreSQL database instead of MySQL in FormLoom/Stacks

    Just add an option in order to use another DBMS to store the submitted content of a form.

    • Add calculation fields (and currency field)

      Please can you add also calculation fields to formloom so the form can calculate on screen and also in the form (receipt form). Can you also add an currency field?

      • Set a specific start DATE (eg May 21, 2015)

        I’m planning a 5 day trip (Thursday thru Monday) for a group. I'd like to create a calendar page with a detailed schedule of the events, with the detailed week view on the page, starting on Thursday (eg May 21, 2015).

        However, we can't currently set the stack to start on a specific date.

        Therefore, the page opens on the empty week at the beginning of the month, requiring visitors to click to the start date. Many will be confused so without this feature, the stack is unusable for this use case.

        • Specify class for Formsnap Button

          This would be useful, especially when using a theme based on a framework such as Foundation or Bootstrap. It would provide an exact match to other buttons and would avoid creating extra CSS.

          Great stack, anyway!

          • shipping must be selected before adding item to Paysnap cart

            How about a conditional checkbox in Paysnap that does not allow an item to be added to the cart unless some form of shipping is selected.

            • Compact version of Paysnap.

              I would like to see a compact version of the Paysnap stack. While the Paysnap stack is very versatile and easy to use, it does take up huge amounts of vertical screen space. some of my pages have up to 20 items on them and once all of the required elements are put on the page, navigation becomes a nightmare. having a compact template for a paysnap item would make life much easier.

              • Formloom conditional input type/item

                I like to set an input type conditional to another form item.

                For example, suppose I have a question such as "Do you have a pet?", then the answer could be a radio button or pull-down menu to choose "Yes" or "No", and if the above answer is "Yes", then the next question could be "Dog" or "Cat" while no further question shown up if the above answer is "No".

                • FormSnap Select php options values

                  Hello,

                  I would like to have the possibility to set options for a select filled by some php.

                  Instead of manual entry (option1, option2, etc),
                  I would like to enter some php code or at least echoing a php value.

                  Thank you and kind regards,
                  Philippe

                  • FormSnap Date Picker php value

                    hello.

                    I use FormSnap to provide a form to be filled. ok.
                    This same form is also used to show data stored in a MySQL database.

                    This is ok with input fields by adding php echo into value field.
                    I would like the date picker allow the same behavior. Echoing a value would set the date picker to the date echoed.

                    For now, the php command is cryptic and so not usable. I've something like :
                    <input class="form-control" name="form[date]" size="16" type="text" value="&#60;?php echo $row [&#34;datemanif&#34;];?&#62;"

                    Thank you and kind regards,
                    Philippe

                            Be neat if we could have a dropdown with different email addresses behind the options.
                            Say a dropdown with send email to:
                            support, sales, warranty, etc
                            The user doesn't see the actual email address just the label.
                            Maybe it could get the address from a mysql database.

                              Hi Guys

                              I am a big supporter of your stacks and plugins

                              I use FormSnap and FormLoom a lot to collect data. The only way I can really access that data is by going to the phpMyAdmin site via my cPanel access.

                              A while ago I had someone programme a simple html search form where I could access the SQLdb data directly eg I could search a name and date and the search would return the results that I needed.

                              Just wondering if you guys can't come up with a reverse of FormSnap (maybe call it LookSnap or GetSnap?) where…

Therefore, on my of my forms, I need to know which student is signing up for something and I don't want to have to have a parent fill out the same information twice on two different entries. I would prefer that they could enter the contact information once and add conditionally, the number of students signing up. To do this, I have had to seek other PHP based forms products, but they have their own drawbacks.

                                    So what I would like to be able to do is create a form similar to an…

                                      I use DateLoom and DateSnap a lot on my web pages, as you can see from my other ideas so far. What I would love to see is a stack that could announce an event as it comes close to happening. An automated announcing stack based on events coming due that are on my DateLoom or DateSnap Calendar.

                                      • FormLoom 3 Date Picker problem

                                        In a previous discussion, I spoke about using FormSnap in conjunction with DateLoom. Originally, I tried using FormLoom 3, because it makes responsive sites far more easy to weave and the stack included with it makes stacks integration a snap. Plus, I just love working with FormLoom versus the micromanagement of stacks with FormSnap.

                                        However, I had to use FormSnap instead of my shiny new FormLoom because of two problems. The first was on iPhone, the snappy new Font Awesome icons got pushed into the content area making it hard to read the data entered.

                                        The second is that the…

                                        • DateLoom plug-in Stack like the one for FormLoom 3

                                          For a volunteer calendar, I created a MySQL database that could hold all the data necessary to populate DateLoom by writing to the .php and .json files that store the manual events put in through the DateLoom interface.

                                          But, I also want a form directly below the calendar to allow the volunteers to select a date to serve on. You can see an example at watchdogs.dennisonpta.org/sign-up/

                                          I would like to see a Stack like the one from FormLoom 3 that I could use instead of having to use JoeWorkman's global content stack. Therefore, I am suggesting such a stack be…
