A couple weeks ago, Joe Antonioli and Brett Wilhelm helped us out by installing a plugin for the blogging server here called “cforms”. This plugin lets people create general data collection forms which can be made available through their blog. It has a very friendly user interface and offers more form-related features than our custom coded PHP forms ever did.
I’ve received a number of questions about how to set this up, how to get started using this. I’ve created a Basic Guide to Setting up cforms on the LIS Wiki that I’ll keep adding content to as I continue to meet with people and find out what questions they have about using this plugin.
If you have questions about using cforms, you can contact me directly and I’ll work with you or your department, office, or organization to get setup and get using this.
