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

There’s been some really terrific developments in the world of mojoPortal this past month; here’s a rundown on the latest.
1) Form Wizard Pro 220.127.116.11 was released this month; the biggest update is the ability to use aliases for question values and questions. This allows for improved data optimization when capturing responses via form to be imported into databases from .csv or .xls outputs, while maintaining readability.
Example: Location IDs may be a GUID string in the database, but location customers will be more likely to understand “123 Main St.” than “8f40a6e6-bd34-497b-94ee-6317ae273947″ – you can see how being able to use a “human-friendly” label for the response option will ensure higher form completion levels.
mojoPortal users taking advantage of Form Wizard Pro for the first time will appreciate i7media’s article on Form Wizard Pro templates. Accompanying the article are two sample forms to get you started, along with step-by-step explanations on how to import the sample forms.
October was the first month for IndigoTea’s Free mojoPortal Skin of the Month; in honor of the Halloween holiday, an extra Halloween-themed skin was also made available. The IndigoTea site, as well as the client site Appraising In Delaware, were also featured on the mojoPortal.com site.
Shaun Geisert has come up with a nifty time-saver for automating mojoPortal upgrades using Windows Powershell; you can find step-by-step instructions on the Colorado State University site.
One of the most interesting developments for mojoPortal this month has been on the Windows Web App Gallery; mojoPortal is not only one of the featured application downloads, but also the highest-rated application.Learn More

One of the most appealing aspects of using open-source software is the ability to create your own additions and extensions to the base application/framework. However, re-inventing the wheel rarely appeals to anyone, much less developers on tight timelines. That is the reason I chose to leverage the Form Wizard Pro by Joe Audette/Source Tree Solutions, an add-on module for the free mojoPortal CMS.
Installation, as usual with Joe’s “Pro” series of add-ons, went smoothly; once installed, the Form Wizard Pro is accessible from the “Edit Page” screen, just like the built-in features that come bundled with mojoPortal.Learn More
