Main features of Form2Content (available in our FREE Lite version)


100% native Joomla articles

Form2Content creates native Joomla articles. Keep It simple and stick to the code. There are hundreds of modules, components and plugins compatible with F2C. … YOU decide which gallery, slideshow, Google map or video player you want to use ... some plugin integration examples


Front-end article manager

Your clients, friends or family can now add, edit and publish articles from the Joomla front-end. Simple, no html or plugin codes required, just write, upload images and save … What's more, no more Joomla back-end access required!


Publishing permissions

Users can create, edit & publish their own (or all) articles. Permission settings can limit rights on all publishing features. Administrators can see all in front-end. With our extra (free) plugin you can get e-mail notifications when an article has been added or edited.


Submission forms for articles

Create your custom article submission forms using many different field types. The result, your user (client) doesn’t have to know any html to publish articles … they can focus on the content as they should! Create as many content types as you like, each with it's own submission form.


Article templates for consistent layout

The data from the submission forms is added to article templates to create the Joomla article. This way all the articles will look the same and the user doesn’t need to know anything about the layout (html & plugin codes).


Smarty template engine, power in simplicity

Using IF, ELSE, FOREACH etc. makes your article templates dynamic. Use it for extra signs like “sale” or “featured” in your articles or change the layout depending on selections made ... lots of documentation and examples …. only your creativity will limit the possibilities.


E-mail notification

With the free F2C plugin users, administrators, groups or custom e-mail address can receive an e-mail message when new articles are created or existing articles are edited. Messages can be templated.


Free support, documentation & F2C forum

For both our free and commercial extensions we provide free support, a dedicated F2C documentation website and forum. Check out our JED reviews to see how our community has experienced the support.

How does Form2Content work (in a nutshell)?

F2C helps you create 100% native JOOMLA ARTICLES in a flexible and unique way. This is accomplished by splitting information (data) and presentation (layout) at Joomla article level. No CORE HACKS, extra content scripts or plugins required. We collect the article information using custom submission forms. The data is than pasted into Joomla articles using ARTICLE TEMPLATES...... that's it, well kind of ;)!

Joomla 3.3, Mootools and Form2Content

Joomla is slowly switching from Mootools to JQuery. As many things depend on this it is a gradual process. The Joomla article manager has always used Mootools, as a result F2C has had to use it too. In Joomla 3.3 Mootools is still loaded by default. You can use different plugins to remove Mootools but than the F2C frond-end (based on Joomla Article Manager) no longer works. To allow Mootools just being loaded for F2C and other extensions which might require it you the following extension.

As soon as JAM works with JQuery we will update F2C too, leaving Mootools behind at last.
