Product Request - Stacks for Forms
I keep getting more and more requests for even more complex forms. And often I see requests for forms that go beyond the basic vertical layouts possible with the two current main forms plug-ins we have today (the built-in one and the Formloom). Add to this the huge popularity of Stacks, and I think that there is an opportunity here - Stacks for Forms.
The way I see it, at the moment, there are two possibilities for this. The first is for some enterprising developer to create a set of stacks for the Stacks plug-in. This would probably entail one or two stacks that have the majority of code in them for the storing/sending of the data. The other stacks would represent the various form elements and functions.
Another method would be to make a special version of the Stacks plug-in that only caters to the needs of a form. Then, we would build forms just like we currently build pages. This approach, in my mind, could completely replace FormLoom (or be the new FormLoom) and could even spur stack development much as the current Stacks plug-in does - opening opportunity for creativity and financial opportunity in a whole new area.
Any thoughts on this?
