CSS Form Builder and Site Sculptor

I created a Site Sculptor site then created a form using CSS Form Builder. Using the Site Sculptor CMS I am trying to add the form code but no luck. When the webpage is loaded in the browser the form does not load. I see there is a fix to add PowerGallery code to the PowerCMS/SiteSculptor. When I try this fix that does not work.

What needs to be done in order to add CSS forms to PowerCMS or SiteSculptor?

Creating a Site Sculptor Page Type

The CMS is really intended for maintaining your content, not developing pages with forms. However, you might be able to pull this off by creating a new page type based on your form.

This has not been tested, but here are the steps i would try:

*Just a heads up, but this will involve recreating your site if you want any areas of the form page to be included in the CMS.

1. With your Site Sculptor site selected in the Files panel, open the Assets panel in Dreamweaver and select the Templates category.
2. Right-click on the sitesculptor_template option and choose New from Template.
3. Run FB and insert your new form to this page. Then, add the desired functionality to the form (Email, DB Insert, etc.).
4. Save your page and go to WebAssist > Build Site > Create Site Sculptor Page Type.
5. Enter a page type name such as "Contact Form" and click OK.
6. Delete your Site Sculptor files and delete your database tables so that everything can be recreated with this new form page.
7. Enter Site Sculptor interface, choose your settings from the main interface.
8. Choose the Site Type Define button, and add a new page and select your new Page Type for that page (It will be listed under ----Custom ----).
9. Complete Site Sculptor and upload and install the CMS.

Not sure if this will work, but there is a good chance it will. We'll be looking into adding more dynamic page types in the future so that this will be easier to do.

Thank you Neil.

I simply replaced the CMS code chunk with the form code and the form works. That will work for now.

"We'll be looking into adding more dynamic page types in the future so that this will be easier to do."

Site Sculptor seems to be the start of something good. It's looks like you have already started integrating some pre-built and non extenions (for example) ThemeIt and PowerCMS lite with Site Sculptor. I must be assuming and jumping the gun thinking that Site Sculptor should be integrated with all the WebAssist extensions so that one can created a FULL COMPLETE website using Site Sculptor.

Keep up the good work.

thanks again

You're definitely not jumping the gun. You'll be seeing a lot more integration in the next few months and we are definitely heading in that sort of direction. It's definitely a good time to consider the Extension Library (if you haven't already) so that you get access to these new extensions as soon as they are released.
