Hi Torben,

I did make a form already using ad_form. Actually, I didn't find it *too* bad - documentation and a walk-through were readily available. Some things that weren't documented took some time to figure, but at least they were "reasonably figure-able." Still, better is always, well, better, so I look forward to seeing your new forms!

Hope Dave or somebody can help me out with the other stuff.

The advantages to ad_form are consistent form behavior throughout an application, inline error reporting etc. There may be some newer technology we could use to rewrite this, but so far it has worked.

The question is if your acs-kernel is 5.6.0. You can check this by visiting the URL /acs-admin/apm/ under your installation and checking the version number for the acs-kernel package.

If this is the case, I am working on a tutorial for customizing a subsite that would be perfect to help you. If you are using a version older than 5.6.0 the techniques are different.

It's 5.6.0.

In this case you want to create a new package that is a subtype of the acs-subsite package. Then you can place all of your customizations into your new package.

I am working on the tutorial for this, I'll see if I have something that will help you.
