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!

Add a detail view to the data table view

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

New in version 1.5.0

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.

Since version 1.5.0 you can add a link to a detail view of each record set to the table view of the plugin. If you want to use this feature, you have to prepare your form and it's fields according to the Section "Display data in frontend" in Save results and use stored data

Please enable the form Option "Display data details" and set the option "Frontend display" for each overhead field (like IP) and each form field, which you want to be displayed in the detail field, to "List and Details" or "Details only".

Then add the new plugin parameter displaydetail to your plugin string. Like in the first example in Examples of use.

You can use the new plugin parameter displaydetailtitle if you want to display the form title above the detail view of the record set.
