"BLOX Registration is capable of requiring specific fields - first name, last name, phone number, etc. - before a new registration request can be submitted. However, user accounts exist that do not contain the specified, required fields."
Really, REALLY wish you folks could find a way to fix this.
We were interested in the Open Graph tag article:publisher for our Facebook/website. Blox had the documentation, so we assumed that this worked.
After putting a ticket in, we were told that it was not functioning and we'd love to see this be available. We are interested in the "like" button that shows up on the articles, etc. to help our social media promotion.
I tried to create a form to start working on this concept. When I click on NEW FORM, I get a window asking for Form Title and URL. I put in a form title but when I click on the down arrow to select from a list of URLs, no choices are made available to me, just an empty box.
In the documentation, it states:
NOTE: When a new form is created, BLOX CMS will automatically create a URL and insert it into the URL tree relative to the URL that was selected above.
But it is not doing this. I can't get past the blank box where URL choices or a directory tree apparently should be. Also, I'm not allowed to type in a URL to see if the system will create it. So I can't get anywhere. How can we fix this? If it works I want to do many forms for our various coaches to use.
[% asset.starttime('Y, n, j, G, i, s') %]
and where the month # is (n) I want to subtract 1 from the #.
Example: [% asset.starttime('Y, n -1, j, G, i, s') %]
My example doesn't work and is just an example of what I want to happen.
I recognize that not all forms are soliciting information that we would want in our Editorial assets, even if they came over with "Do Not Publish" checked, so perhaps this would be a setting on the form that you could tell it do export to Editorial on a case-by-case basis.
Thanks very much.
But, for fielded data that becomes more difficult because we don't always know the format that the resulting asset should have.
For some simple submissions though, this could be done in the User Dashboard.
