I created a form using ConvertForm extension for guests to submit information (name, age, ...etc) into my Joomla database. Is there a way to display the information the guests submitted to another page on the website? (retrieving data from the database and putting it in an article or something on front-end) Can this be done through an extension or should I learn PHP to be able to do it?

  • It may be a little bit hard for you to get it done. You have to create a module in order to display such information on a specifc page. I can help you with it. What's the table name and the fields you want to display? Apr 13, 2020 at 11:28

Yes there is a way (or two):

  • If you want to use an extensión, you can try with DB Embed Pro
    This allows you to insert data in your articles as you mention.
  • You also can do this by Selecting data using JDatabase
    In this way, you can show you data in any part of your site, for example you can add the code in index.php file in your template, or in some override or in your custom module, etc.

  • I didn't know it. I thought he had to create a module. Thank you. I have a module ready for him just in case as he doesn't know PHP. Apr 14, 2020 at 10:23
