Formulize lets you add custom forms to your XOOPS website, and search, sort and analyze the data that users submit. You can also save custom views of the data, and publish reports on the data to other users in your site.

Formulize works together with several other modules and patches to provide many other features for you site. This release, together with the companion Reg Codes module, provides several new account creation options, including private information in profile forms, and a host of new approval and notification options when accounts are created.

With a total of over 60 changes, improvements and fixes, this is the most comprehensive and flexible Formulize release yet. Even basic users will benefit from simple new features like the ability to specify horizontal or vertical orientation for individual checkbox and radio button questions, the ability to add a final "other" textbox to checkboxes and radio buttons, and the ability to select metadata, like "the user who created the entry," and "the creation date" as default fields when viewing a list of entries.

There are also many, many interface improvements for end users, including several features to make the list of entries page easier to work with for novices, especially when no entries have been made in a form yet.

New API features have been included in Pageworks for application developers, including the ability to present multi-page forms with skip logic. The "Using Formulize..." PDF has been completely overhauled with newer and more indepth information, particularly about Frameworks of forms.

We are very proud of this release, and hope to confirm it as a Final release in the next couple of weeks. For those of you in the Toronto area, we hope to see you this Friday at the FSOSS conference where Julian Egelstaff will be making a presentation about using Formulize and XOOPS as a rapid application development system.

Thanks for reading!
