I am testing Confiforms, and I can easily enter "books" smile


But list- and tableviews are just emtpy, it seems I cant make list:

So looking at your screenshots the issue is that you did not put any field macros inside the tableview or listview macros. The reason for this is that you can define which fields will be shown in the view macros and which won't. Also with the list view macro you can define formatting as well. So, it should look something like this ...

The last macro I put in the table view macro above puts an edit button onto each row of the table that will allow you to edit the field. It's handy at times.

Have you tried looking at some of their examples on their documentation site? It will give you some good ideas. Also, while you can put the registration control outside the form macro in a typical scenario you would put it into the form macro for a couple of reasons. The first is that you don't have to specify which form to use in the form attribute on the registration control if it is inside the form macro. And secondly it will bind that registration control macro as  the default view of the form. Which comes in handy if you like to build your forms yourself using field macros instead of relying on Confiforms to lay the form out for you.


Awesome, I knew i scr*wed up smile Thanks

It's a bit of a learning curve, but honestly ConfiForms is by far the most useful add-on we have ever purchased for our Confluence environment.

Hi Normann,

maybe it would be better to ask the vendor of the plugin: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.vertuna.confluence.plugins.confiforms/server/support

Good Luck

It's hard to see what you are doing from the screenshots. They are pretty low quality. Could you re-upload the screenshots?

Thomas, thanks for the advise, but it was intentionally placed here in the user2user community.




Davin - click'ing on the screenshots should enlarge them?

Hmm, clicking them doesn't enlarge them.

Ok. I tried clicking them like a ton of times, but now it seems to work. Odd!
