Main Configuration

On this page we will cover the main features of configuring your application and tables. Most main configurations are done by us, but if you need to do this yourself, here is where we show you how. Below is a picture of your main configuration screen.

Notice the top callout. This is where the main configuration for the application or database is created. We will cover this in a little while. Below this is a list of all your data tables. Most sites will only use one table, but as we have already pointed out you can create more tables as needed. Each table may have a different purpose. In this example we have four tables. One is the main Register table and one is specifically for artists. These can be ones that appear on website or only in admin.

In the data tables you will see Configuration which we will show you in great detail later. Also note there is a code field which actually shows the PHP code for the table. This is helpful if you are inserting the table in a web page yourself. In most cases this is done be us. The code is inserted by way of an "iFrame" (definition below). Below is a sample of what it looks like. Cursor over "PHP" to see the definition.



When you click on "Application Configuration" you will see this: Application Configuration First there appears the "ID" as assigned when application is created. Then the name you assign for the application (Db). If the form will appear on a web page, under "Public Forms Input" select "yes". Next if you want to use categorization labels, select it. And finally the email addresses you will use.

Next we will cover the table configuration under "Data Tables". When you click on the config button next to the name of the table ("Table Configuration") you will see something like this: Table Configuration It says the name you gave the table and then underneath that you'll see "User Input?" Here you choose whether the pages will appear on the web site for users to fill out. There are many options to govern how the form appears on the web page. This includes controlling the column width, the background color, the text color, and the font.

Next you can choose what the submit button says: whether it says continue, submit or send. Then an onscreen popup will appear with your custom message. Next, if you have created an email field in the form, you can choose that field here. "Double Opt-In" if chosen will send the user an email to confirm their email address. Many websites use this to confirm that a real user has filled out the form. Then there is a confirmation email sent if chosen. This message box will be shown if you choose "Mail Submitter?". You will have a choice of a text or HTML message. We will show an example of this on the next page where we will cover "Portal Sites". Next you can use the option on whether to send a copy of the form to you and the format of the email, whether text or HTML.
