Web Forms

Hey all,We are using Adobe's CQ5 for our CMS. It does a lot of wonderful things; however, forms are one of the things that could use a little/lot of improvement. Recognizing that, we are looking at integrating a 3rd party solution for forms. What are you all using for online forms integrated into your sites? For security reasons, we are looking to avoid using a cloud based solution. Just curious.Thanks,Jim NilsonDirector of Web CommunicationsMarketing + CommunicationsNorthern Kentucky UniversitySee More

So, the "powers that be" here are looking into various catalog systems...for next year.In the meantime, we're now working on our (hopefully last) old-school InDesign/PDF catalog, and I got to thinking...maybe it would be a good thing to do some sort of web-based static page (to keep it simple, for now) catalog this time around, to make the transition next year to whatever catalog system the "powers that be" decide upon an easier one.We have a Wordpress instance and then we have our regular…See More
