Heads Up: This is the documentation for Joomla 3

We recommend using the Documentation for Joomla 4!

It is more up-to-date and extensive. Most of it applies retrospectively to Joomla 3.

Joomla 5 Notice

We are pleased to announce that as of January 29, 2024, all of our Joomla extensions are compatible with Joomla 5.

For all who are still updateing from Joomla 3 to Joomla 4: Joomla 4 Migration instructions are available here:

There is now a separate Documentation for Visforms for Joomla 4 and for Visforms for Joomla 5!

Custom field order for frontend data views

This feature is part of the Visforms Subscription and not available in the free Visforms version. It was added to the Visforms Subscription release 3.2.1.

Since the Visforms Subscription 3.2.1 you will find an additional column at the right side of the View "Visforms - Fields of.." in the administration of your website, which you can use in order to set a custom field order for the frontend data views. Click on the two triangles in the column header. Then set the field order by dragging and dropping the three squares.

Use custom field order

As a default fields in the frontend data views are ordered by the default field order. In order to use your custom field order for frontend data views. you have to set an additional option in the menu item which you use to display the data. You have to set the Option "Field Order" in the menu configuration tab "Form Data Display Options" to "Use 'Order in Data View'". (See Screenshot)

Frontend Data View Field Order

If you use the Content Plugin Data View in order to display the data, you can use the following parameter in your plugin string "fieldorder":"dataordering".
