Export Manager help
#1
Hi.
Thanks for this wonderful tool. ( I donated already, hope to do it again) =)
I need 2 thinks.
1. I would like to understand the export capabilities of Export Manager, seems like its long way beyond my capabilities, so I would like to have a tutorial, really really easy to understand, indeed It will be great, if it were a video on, I have try with the actual documentation but I don’t see the light.
2. I would like to know if there’s any change that the Export Manager generates a web page where you could input one of the previous fields stored in a form, and show the info related to it.
The input code will be a custom field -no the id form, or the actual Placeholders. Or, if there’s another opensourse application that allow to do that. (with limited coding knowledge )
Thanks a lot for your help.

Hey titooooo,

to start with you can have a look at the existing "html/printer friendly template" and http://www.smarty.net/
For your application it might be even simpler to directly read out the values from the mysql database of the form (a simple form which submits a mysql query and displays the result).

Sorry that I do not have a working code sample for you.

Cheers,
Hannes

Hey titooooo,

what is exactely the difference between the tool you want and the integrated search function of formtools?
is it only that the search should be available outside the login area?

then what you can also do is to set a new client in the client area which will be accessable by public.
you can create a view for this client which only alloweds to read data and setup a auto-login page using the "ft_api_login" documented on the form tools page.

Maybe you can also post the direct link to the "Open source search engines" you mean.

Cheers,
Hannes

wow, that sound great.
The Idea is a community where you agree to share your email, with other people; basically, the idea is that people will fill the form with name, email, and nickname. (to be part of)
There’s a 2 form that has 1 field, where you input nickname, and it returns you the correspondent email ,been part of the community gives you the right to consult the database, but to avoid spammers, the idea is that you just have access to 1 record at the time.
So spammers will have to, 1.To have nick names in the database 2. Consult 1 by 1.
Also if you are able to have all the info, you don’t comeback. =(
Thanks a lot for your time.
Tito
My girlfriend its German, I just came from there, i went to the octoberfest,maybe I will live there.

Hey Tito,

thank you for your feedback.
a spam-proof email-directory... sounds challenging.

So you were in Munich back in September?
If you are going to move there be prepared that Bavaria is very different from the surrounding areas. Smile

Cheers,
Hannes
