Multi Column Form

Hi there... what exactly is meant by field Id?
I used the automatic columns - that's fine.. 2 columns but not aligned/ordered the way I'd like.
I also tried manual... with both the field name (#User Name#, Message) and the field ids retrieved from output, divided by comma. Neither gave me a 2 column layout

What am I missing?
Thanks, GG

Hello Regina and thank you for posting.

You are right. I've been meaning to improve the column creation method.

Basically what you need to do is write the Field IDs where you want the new column to start.
If you want two columns, you can just write something like 1,5 where 1 is the ID of the first field of the first column and 5 is the first field of the second column.

However, the order of the fields is not controlled by the module or menu item, but rather than the Field Manager itself. So, if you need to re-order the appearance of your fields, you should go to the Field Manager, and sort by the ordering column, clicking on the two arrow column header of the field table. Then you can drag-n-drop the fields in the order you want.

Let me know if that helps.
Thanks again.

I would love to do that and generally improve the column creation.
Feel free to share your thoughts on how it could be improved.
