Welcome to issue 40 of DNN Creative Magazine.
In this DotNetNuke training series we explore DataSprings Dynamic Forms module, this is a very powerful module for quickly and easily building complex forms in DotNetNuke.
We begin with a Quick Start Guide, where we show you the basic principles of the Dynamic Forms module and how, in a matter of minutes, you can create simple forms for collecting data from your website visitors.
We then demonstrate how you can show and hide form fields dependant on responses from other fields with Question Events. Question Events make your forms very flexible and user friendly as they only display form fields that are relevant to the user filling out their details.
Next we show you how you can view the data that the Dynamic Forms module captures, how to setup a message to display when a user clicks on the submit button and how to import and export forms that you have created into other Dynamic Forms Modules.
Still on the subject of forms, we also have an article covering the 20 Best Practice Tips for creating forms.
Following this we have an article on how to use Favicons within DotNetNuke. Favicons are a great way to make your site stand out from a long list of bookmarked pages and give your site a more personal touch. We show you how to create a favicon from scratch, how to create a favicon from an existing image and how to attach the favicon.ico file to your DotNetNuke website.
To finish the issue off we have a podcast from our regular DotNetNuke News series.
This issue comes complete with 10 Video Tutorials, 2 Articles and 1 Podcast!
