Replaces a shortcode such as
[cformstable form='nameofyourform'] with a table of data or a count of information collected via the excellent CForms II.
Examples would be:
[cformstable form='nameofyourform']to display how many entries have been collected by your form
[cformstable form='nameofyourform' display='table' vars='Name,Date,Comment']to display a table of entries collected by your form
Possible variables for your shortcode include:
display = 'number'or
'table'– (the default is
form = 'the name of your form'– if you don’t know the names of possible forms, just use
[cformstable]to get a list of options
from =DATETIME string (format:
Y-m-d H:i:s). Date & time defining the start of a target period, e.g.
to =DATETIME string (format:
Y-m-d H:i:s). Date & time defining the end of a target period, e.g.
limit =‘the maximum lines to show in the table or count’ (optional)
vars =list of variable names to use as column headers separated by commas e.g.
'Name,Date,Comment'. To change the way the name is displayed, add your revised text after
cols =list of variable numbers to use as column headers separated by commas e.g.
'1,2,3'. You can get variable numbers by posting
[cformstable display='table' form='Name of your form']. As with the vars setting, to change the way the name is displayed, add your revised text after
limit = 'the maximum lines to show in the table'(optional)
sortdir = 'asc'or
sort = 'form', 'id', 'date', 'ip'or
'email'or any other form input field, e.g.
deduped = TRUEor
FALSE– remove duplicate IP/email addresses from count (optional)
adjust = 'n'where
nis a numerical value (+10, -20 etc.) to adjust the count displayed up or down (optional)
