In the last article, we finished creating the Member and Info forms we need to run our new network. Each of these forms creates a matching List where we can add new data just by clicking on the Add button. In this article, we will first look at the Service Provider Info Form and List in the back end and then create menu items to look at the same form and list in the front end. Then in the next article, we will use our Member Registration Form to add our Demo Members and have our Demo Service Providers fill out the Service Provider Info form to test how well our new network works.
View our Service Provider Info Form and List in the Back End
Go to Fabrik Forms, Service Provider Info and click View Data.
We have set these form elements so the only elements shown on the List are Service Provider City, Service Provider Name, Service Provider Category and Provider Photo. Note that we have reordering the elements to put the Service Provider City first. We could add new service providers here in the backend if we wanted just by clicking on Add. But because we only want folks with Linux computers accessing the back end, we will instead create a system where folks can sign up on the front end and thus be able to use any computer without compromising the security of the back end of our website. Click the back arrow to exit this screen. We will next create several new menus and several new menu items to add our Demo Members in the front end.
Add Two New Menu Items to our existing Main Menu
First, we need a Member Signup Menu Item. Then we need Member Log In. These two menu items will both be available for the Public to see on our Main Menu.
Create a Member Signup Menu Item
Go to Menus, Main Menu and click New. Then for Menu Item Type, click SELECT. Then click Fabrik.
Click Form. Then for Fabrik Form, select the Registration Form. For Menu Title, type Member Signup. Then in the lower right corner, change the Access from Public to Guest. This will hide the Signup menu item from Members who are already logged in.
