The template developer has the option of specifying default values and invalid entries for some input forms. The effects of editing the input forms are described in section Default values and Invalid entries.

Special case: Input components used that are not available on the server (any more)

Throughout the life cycle of a project, input components used in templates may not be available on the server (any more), perhaps because they have not been installed on the server or because they are obsolete and no longer supported by FirstSpirit. These unknown input components are identified in the form by the following text:

Display errors in the editor (...). There is no component registered as (...)!

In older versions of FirstSpirit, unknown input components may mean that forms can no longer be edited and saved until the configuration has been corrected.

For further information refer to the Forms (→FirstSpirit Online Documentation).
