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.
