    how to move fields up and down, while using this plugin ?

    Do we need to create a new form from scratch Or can this be done within a form.

    Please assist.

    Under Manage Forms, click on the More Options button to the right of your form. This will expand it. You will see two drop menus - Attached Fields and Attached Field. The first one has all your existing fields and in the order you added them. To change the order, you will have to select one field at a time from Attached Fields, then click on Detach. you will then select a field from Attached Field and click on Attach. This will add the filed to your first set of drop options.

    If you only needed to change the order of the last two items, you would simply remove the last two ones, then re-add them in the order you want. But if you wanted to move the first one to the bottom, or anywhere else, you would need to detach all fields, then re-add each one in the order you want.

    Dear tamayo,
    thanks for your answer. But this interface really doesnt help. Its equivalent to creating a new form.

    There can be a Drag Drop interface for this.

    This is the main problem I have with this plugin. An absolutely fantastic product, except that having to remove and add all one's fields again to add a new field at the top of the form is a real pain, especially for larger forms. I reckon this must be the numbr 1 priority for improving this plugin.

    A User Interface designer is needed. This plugin has great options, but is "intuitive" only to those who work with code.

    We have a customer with lots of forms and lots of Drop Downs. We love the flexibility of Custom Contact Forms but needed to created a little something to help with sorting.

    CCF Sort Options

    Please Enjoy!
