Do Joomla (content) plugins work if inserted in the F2C Template?
YES. F2C combines the information from a form (fields in the database) with the layout from our F2C template. The generated HTML is inserted in to the Joomla Article content field. When there are Plugin codes in your template file(s) these will be parsed into the Articles and thus work as usual. Please do read our documentation about this!
What happens if I edit articles generated by F2C in the Joomla Article Editor?
F2C is a one way system and replaces the Joomla Article editor for the content which is generated by Form2Content. It rewrites the Joomla Article content every time the Article is parsed through the F2C Article Manager. Any changes made in those articles using the Joomla Editor will be lost when Form2Content updates (parses) those articles.
Can I test Form2Content on Localhost
Yes you can. Do make sure that your hosting environment is setup correctly though.
Is the published/unpublished status the same as in Joomla?
YES it is. If an article is published or unpublished in the F2C Form Manager it is also changed in the Joomla database.
