form layout not working

confiform custom or default layout not displaying

1 answer

Hi @Philip Domenico 


Welcome to this community!

Interesting statement... Do you mind sharing what custom layout in ConfiForms do you have and how is it configured?


Hi Alex, I actually didn't realize that I was submitting a question when I did it.


thanks for responding. 

1) When I configure the FORM definition, I put instructional text between the fields. This text (or table, etc.) will not display when I put a Form Registration on this or another page.

2) I do have an IFTTT control - which I can not put in the Form definition. I assume this is because I'm using the Cloud version.

3) I have tried to override the default layout with a customer layout; adding the same fields as the above Form Definition, into the Form Registration. 

I am having some luck with using a custom (form registration over-ride, but that is costing me twice the work.

Any direction is appreciated.


Custom layouts in ConfiForms are defined by using the ConfiForms Registrations Control (FormView) macro, see

And not in Form/Field definitions - these are only configuration

ConfiForms IFTTTs on cloud version with "new editor" cannot be placed inside the ConfiForms Form Definition macro, as this fancy editor does not support nesting of bodied macros (which we really need here)

But we have created a workaround that allows you to put these macros outside and link them via form name parameter
