Configure the form

There shouldn’t be a need to change the configuration of your forms, as it’s best that they maintain a consistent look and feel across your system. However, there are a couple of ways content authors can configure form pages.

Content authors can change the following layout and formatting options for the form page.

Author block

Overview

The Author block of a page contains:

  • the user avatar and name of the person that created the page

  • the date the page was created on

  • a favourite button (allowing users to 'favourite' the page)

  • an Edit button (allowing user to click through to the Edit+ interface to edit the page).

Content authors are able to switch the author block on and off as desired. It is important to note that switching off the author block will hide all of the above information/features.

Guide

  1. Navigate to the page.

  2. Click the 'Edit' button or add '/_edit' to the URL of the page. This will open up the Edit+ Interface.

  3. Enter the Metadata screen.

  4. Within the Page Layout section, navigate to the Show author block? metadata field.

  5. Edit the Show author block? metadata field as follows:

    • Author block switched off: un-tick 'Use default' and select 'No'.

    • Author block switched on: keep 'Use default' tick box checked.

  6. Save the change.

Last updated by section

Overview

The last updated by section of a page shows:

  • the user avatar and name of the person that last updated the page

  • the date the page was updated.

Content authors are able to switch the last updated by section on and off as desired.

Comments

Overview

The comments section of a page allows users to comment on the content of your page (if you let them…). You might want feedback on your content or it might be a set of non-negotiable content that doesn’t warrant inviting comment.

Content authors are able to switch the comments section on and off as desired.
