What are the requirements for Form2Content products?
Form2Content works on any server which meets the default Joomla 1.5.2 and up installation requirements. In order to upload (and resize) images using F2C the GD Library is required. Check your Joomla System info or contact your hosting provider to check if the GD library is installed.
Does Form2Content alter (HACK) any Joomla Core files?
NO, F2C is completely independent of the Joomla core files and requires no hacks or alterations.
When should I use Form2Content?
The Form2Content Component is ideal for content of similar structure and layout. Think of blogs, (product) descriptions, FAQs or any other situation in which you like to have your content in the same layout. Since Form2Content can use dynamic templating, fields which aren't used in the form won't be displayed in your content. Of course this depends on how well you design your template but the possibilities are endless.
Can I test Form2Content on Localhost
Yes you can. Do make sure that your hosting environment is setup correctly though.
