Sample forms & links to good documentation on creating forms using PloneFormGen. PloneFormGen uses the folder metaphor as the form container, and the file metaphor for the fields within a form. In other words, you can add fields, such as e-mail, name, address, etc., to a form in the same way that you can add files (pages, links, files, etc.) to a folder in Plone. The form actions (e-mail submissions and/or save submission to a CSV file) are added to the folder in the same manner, as is the Thank You page that users see after they submit a form.
