5uwebsite created the topic: 3 general questions about content builder

1. I have the following Content Template Setup: mrkr.io/s/5c4f98967baab8460a6a591a/0 Does the publish option only affect articles? It seems that no matter what I said, the newly submit record always has an "unpublished" status, as shown here: mrkr.io/s/5c4f993fa163a13250037844/0 .

2. I use a separate data table to store data entered via CB view (through Breezing Form). Is there a way to update the status of the CB view record to the record stored in the separate data table? If not, is there an easy way to lookup

3. color=red]THIS IS SOLVED. The incorrect view was configured. There is actually no problem with the extension at all.[/color I had made all fields included in list "Not Linkable" and the setting works well for the CB view in backend. However, it seems that all fields in the frontend are still linkable, and clicking on any of them will lead to a 404 page. Did I miss something?

Thanks a lot!

I tried to edit a record in the frontend (via a CB View), by clicking the edit a record's editing button in the list, as shown:

The View was set to "edit by type" and it was linked to a Breezing form pro, so I was able to edit it via the Breezing Form.

However, after I hit the submit button on the last page, it will show a the "Content Template" of this CB view, rather than showing the default Breezing Form submit successful page, as shown here:

Can I actually set a redirection link for the successful page after editing a record via CB?

Thanks a lot!

Hello,

Here are the answers to your questions:

1. When "Auto publish" checkbox is checked line in the picture that you have provided the record should get published immediately.
Are you sure that you are submitting the form(adding new records) in the right view for which you have "Auto publish" checkbox checked?

2. The answer to the question "Is there a way to update the status of the CB view record to the record stored in the separate data table" is, unfortunately, no. There isn't a way to do so since the Integrator is a BreezingForms feature and this publishing is a ContentBuilder feature so those two aren't related.

Maybe it could be done somehow by using list states crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...use-list-states.html . You would have to develop a custom
plugin on state change which would make a query to database.

If it is important for you to do so, what you can do is contact our form specialist GWS DESK and see whether there is something they can do for you.
You can contact GWS DESK here gws-desk.com/extensions-support/breezingforms-support .

3. This you have marked as solved.

Regarding your last post, there is a way to redirect user to a wanted page after the submission.

Please, in BreezingForms form go to form's Advanced properties > More Options > Submit Pieces Tab. Click on "CUSTOM" in the END SUBMIT section and paste in the following code:
$this->execPieceByName('ff_InitLib');
JFactory::getApplication()->redirect('https://www.google.com/');
Replace www.google.com/ with the URL of the page that you wish to redirect to.

Let me know whether this answers your questions and resolves the issues.

Regards,

Mihaela

Hi Mihaela,

1. Thanks for that! I will confirm later and let you know!

2. It is not so important at the moment. I am just curious about whether we can take advantage of the auto-publishing function, and the auto-unpublishing function (which is very convenient and powerful!) if we are storing our data on a separate data table. We could write some script to achieve the same thing at the moment, but thank you so much for providing GWS DESK's contact information!

3. This solution is great! Problem solved! Thanks again!

Hi Mihaela,

#3 is good for redirection. However, I always got an error "Invalid Address (addAnAddress to): Enter your email address here" as shown here:

How can we get rid of this error?
