Q: Is there any documentation for this addon?

A: Yes there is. You can find it here, https://snogssite.com/threads/advanced-forms-documentation.3677/

Q: Can each form have a different recipient? For example, once a user fills the form, can another user, who I specify while creating the form, then receive the form via Email or PM?

A: Yes, each form can have a different email, PC, or thread. They are set at the time the form is created.

Q: What happens when a user uploads an attachment to a form, and the form is set to be sent via an email? Will the recipient receive the attachment via an email?

A: Attachments are only in threads and PCs. They are not sent by email.

Q: When a user submits a form, complete answer can be posted in existing thread?

A: Yes, they can be submitted to an existing thread.

Q: Can I use a RegEx to test for character length? I want to check that the first question variable is shorter than 100 characters as that is going into the thread title..

A: Yes you can, ^\s*([^\s]\s*){1,99}$

Q: Can multiple answers be used to create the thread title?

A: Yes.

Q: I would like to ask if this add-on does support thread prefixes or not ?

A: The forms system supports setting a prefix for the thread created when creating the form.

Q: Would this addon be suitable to use for Reviews in a specific forum? For example like an extended Custom Thread Field?

A: In general if it's a form based response where people need to answer questions that you're looking for, most likely it would be usable.

Q: How do I make a question required?

A: Define an error for each question you want to be mandatory.

Q: Instead of it posting to a thread could you have it simply message a specified staff member the completed form?

A: Yes, it has options to send the completed form by email or private conversation, rather than posting to a thread. You can also do all three versions (post, email, private message) together, in addition to a "Form successfully submitted" message to the user.

Q: Can I use this addon to automatically add user applicants to any user groups on my board, right? Not just mod/admin roles.

A: You can, it gives you options to promote immediately, or to initiate a poll for voting to decide if they get promoted. You can set the primary user group, or add any secondary user groups, from your entire list of available groups. (If you want to do the poll option, just make sure the application is posted to a place where only the people you want to vote have the permission to cast votes). In addition to that, you can also just include approve/deny links for the form without a poll. And then whoever has permission to approve/deny applications would be able to do so while reading the form post.

Q: How can I change "forms" on the nav bar to what I want?

A: Edit the snog_forms_forms phrase.

Q: URLs in single line text do not appear to convert to BBCode url, is there a trick to do this?

A: On the 'Report Type' tab, check the 'Parse URLs' box.

Q: Is there any sort of control flow where to show/hide sections based on users answers to previous questions with this addon?

A: Yes, that's what conditional questions are. They are only displayed based on the answer given to a question.
