perch_form not showing up in back end

Hi ,

I have struggled to get my form working. I have included it in the page by using:

<?php perch_form('contact-form.html'); ?>

And made sure that the contact-form.html is in perch/templates/forms

It appears on the page, but without an introduction message, nor does it show a success message at the end. It also does not show up in the Page in the perch back end, so I cannot edit the introduction or success message.

I think I have had the form app working when using perch_content('contact-form.html') on other sites but trying it out with perch_form() is giving me problems.

Any tips?

If you want to edit content in the form then you should add it using Perch Content as normal, the perch_form function is for forms that have no editable content.


Thank You Rachel!

Agreed, I am getting the same behaviour.
