Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Templating -- Form Manager

Posted by Benjamin Bytheway on
Forms are generated using default templates. These can be found in /packages/acs-templating/resources/forms. When I was dealing with this question, I would copy the standard form to another name and then make the changes in the new. You can tell your form to use this new template in the formtemplate tag by using the style option:

<formtemplate id="my_form" style="noblue"></formtemplate>

Whenever I've needed to add a short amount of help text, I would use the -label option to ::template::element. -label can take any text, including html.
