Recently, I worked on a project for a client who had a special request for custom functionality on their site. Instead of using the standard newsletter e-mail capture, they wanted an additional form that would present in a lightbox after the user entered their e-mail and clicked “submit” for the first form. I did it, using a custom form handler and some jQuery – this is how.
I started by creating the first custom form that mimic’d the standard newsletter e-mail capture format, then implemented a custom submission handler, as described here: “Implementing A Custom Form Submission Handler”. Fairly straightforward, up to the point where I had to sort out how to enable the second form to pop up in the lightbox. It’s easy enough when you’re calling a link from a page: just add the “cblink” class to your link. It’s a bit trickier when you’re leveraging a form submission, so I got a bit more creative.Learn More

Suppose you are building a catalog website in CMS Made Simple that uses the Products Module and you want to show a contact form on each product detail page. With this little trick you can customize the Subject line of the enquiry form using FormBuilder to include the Product Name automatically.
To do this, use the standard Contact Form in FormBuilder. we look up the field id of the Subject line in your Contact Form. You can do this by checking the “show field id” option in Formbuilder’s Preferences Tab.
Let’s say for example, the field number is “40″. Now, in your product detail template just put the following FormBuilder tag:Learn More
