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!

Create your own layout

This feature is part of the Visforms Subscription and not available in the free Visforms version..

We propose reading the documentation from the beginning, starting with the Introduction. We will not repeat concepts and explanations made in previous parts of the documentation, here.

Its very easy to create your own layout for the data display in content, using the plugin. Just make a copy of one of the existing layouts and adapt it in three simple steps.

You'll find the layout files in the plugin folder plugins/content/vfdataview/tmpl.

First, make a copy of one of the existing layout files (i.e. list.php) and store the copy inside the original folder. Second, rename the copy (i.e. in mylist.php). Please note, that you must not use underscores in the file name. Third, adapt the HTML Code of the new layout file to your requirements. Add custom HTML tag or class-attributes, or display data entierly different (not in tables or descriptions lists.

Add the parameter "layout":"mylist" (it's the name of your file without .php) to the parameter string in your article. That's it!
