Configuring your Webforms

Before proceeding with the creation of a Webform, you will need to verify a few things to ensure that your forms will be translatable. These steps only need to be done once for your site.

First, make sure that the module uOttawa Webforms (uottawa_webforms) is enabled in your module list. Next, navigate to Structure and then Content Types. In the table that appears, find Webform and click on the “edit” operation. At the bottom-left of the page, you should see a tab called Publishing options. Under Multilingual Support, select “Enabled, with field translation”.

Once you have done this, click on the tab called “Display settings” and uncheck “Display author and date information” so that the name of the creator of the form and the creation date of the form do not appear at the top of every Webform.
