    Copy Forms or Create a new Template?

    Jason Prothero started this topic February 10, 2010 @ 11:41, Go directly to the topic solution

    Is it possible to copy forms in Contour?

    If not, then how do I create a template?  I've seen reference to a config file, but I can't seem to find its location.

    Hi Jason,

    You can create new templates in the /umbraco/plugins/contour/contour.config file

    It's actually fairly easy.  Maybe I can do a screencast on it...

    Can you add values to (dropdown/checkbox/radio) lists at all?

    If so what is the syntax in the xml? I have searched high and low...

    Thanks ;)

    Did you have any luck with the xml syntax?

    I discovered with this that you just create the form, export it with a right-click and then dump it in a directory in your solution. Brilliant!!

    Seems to have worked as Michael described except I had to keep changing out the GUID manually in the .ucf file

    <Form>ae45771d-6cad-4a7c-a386-e7397c75ed5a</Form> <!--changed this everytime I cloned it-->

    @Kevin you are probably using an older version, was a bug where it would fail with existing guids

    Cool - in the current version its simply a matter of copying the ucf (export form) to /plugins/umbracoContour/templates
