Forms for Front-end Submission and Editing of Directory Items

Directory and Classifieds sites require forms that allow people to create and edit listings. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to create them using the Toolset Forms plugin.

There are two kinds of forms that you’ll need to create.

  • Forms for adding content: these forms will allow creating new listings from the site’s front-end. You will typically add such a form to a page.
  • Forms for editing content: these forms allow editing listings from the site’s front-end. Since you’re editing a different listing every time, these forms go on special “editing mode” templates.

Besides building the forms, you will also learn how to control access to forms, send notifications, style forms and more.
