Please tell me if it is possible on joomla to display a form with a text field on the site, so that when it is filled in, a user is created, as well as an incoming message from this user? Using the standard features of civicrm, I managed to create only a form that creates a user, but I cannot attach a text field to this form. Apparently, the standard features do not allow this, or there are some nuances that I do not know about. Here is what I was able to create https://i.imgur.com/eXTz6wB.png Below you need to add a text field that will contain the text of the letter. I cannot add it. Do not know how. If I add activity / details to the profile, the form stops working.

Original text in russian: Здравствуйте. Скажите пожалуйста ли возможность на joomla, вывести на сайт форму с текстовым полем, так, что бы при её заполнении создавался пользователь, а так же входящее сообщение от этого пользователя? Используя стандартные возможности civicrm, мне удалось создать только форму, которая создаёт пользователя, а вот текстовое поле прикрепить к этой форме мне не удается. Видимо стандартные возможности этого сделать не позволяют, либо есть какие-то нюансы, о которых я не знаю. Вот то, что мне удалось создать https://i.imgur.com/eXTz6wB.png Ниже нужно добавить текстовое поле, которое будет содержать текст письма. Его я не могу добавить. Не знаю как. Если в профиль добавляю активность/детали, то форма перестает работать.

To add a Text Field to a Profile (which you can then use as a Contact Form) you need to go to Custom Fields, add a field set and then add your field. Then go to your profile and add this field. If you want users created then select the option in Advanced settings of the Profile to set this up.

  • Hello. 1. As soon as I add a phone number to the form, the text of the note stops updating every time I send a new letter. That is, the text of the old application is sent. The very first. I cannot delete the phone number from the postal form, since I need it. Nov 7, 2021 at 22:46
  • 2. Besides, it is not clear how to reflect this event on the main page of the system, in the report on incoming mail? After all, if for some reason the mail service that I use to send letters stops working, then I will not know that the person has filled out this form. Nov 7, 2021 at 22:48

    Your first comment doesn't really make sense to me and worries me that you have some set up incorrect. Perhaps add some screenshots to your Question to try and clarify what you are doing.

    That last screenshot shows you are using NOTES for this. I have no familiarity of adding Notes via Profiles. We generally use Activities.
