before I started using toolset, I already had a plug-in for contact forms.
I wanted to replace this plugin and create a contact form with Toolset.
But unfortunately I have to choose a post-type. But I don't want to save anything. The form should only serve to create an email.

How can I create a form without it being based on a post type?

Hello and thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

It is not possible, by design, to use a Toolset form without using a post. That's how Toolset forms work. A Form is bound to a post, either it creates a post or it edits a post. It cannot be used without a post.

As a workaround, I suggest that you configure the form to create a new post with the draft status. Then, you can set up a cron job or use a plugin to automatically delete draft posts in this custom post type after few minutes, or once daily.

You might want to use the automatic expiration feature to change the created post status to trash or something else. Read more about it here

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
