Packages are a way of moving a Breezin Form you have created, or one of the default Breezin forms, from one website to another. Packages are created AFTER you have created some forms.
What is a package?
There may be times when you want to copy one of your forms to another domain.
Using BreezingForm's 'Package' option, copying forms from one domain to another is a BREEZE, as long as the other domain is running Joomla! with the SAME OR A NEWER VERSION of the BreezingForms extension.
When you create a package, you are actually creating an XML file which can then be shared with others. To send it via Email though, you might have to zip the file first, as not all Email applications / webhosts will accept XML files.
How do I create a package?
To create a package for installation on another domain, here's what you'll need to do. Go to Breezin Forms Configurations Page. At the bottom of this page, click on Create Package.
This will bring up the Create Package Screen.
Leave the ID section blank.
Give your package a file name (no spaces).
Assign a version number to your form.
Enter the title of your package (spaces are allowed).
Enter your name.
Enter your Email address.
Enter your website URL, if applicable.
Enter a brief description of your package and/or form.
If there are copyright restrictions on your package or form, enter the terms here.
Select the form that you wish to include in the package.
Then click on the Continue button. You will be prompted to save an XML file. (Be aware that your browser might block, or attempt to block it. Check for any warnings in that regard.)
Click on Save File, then OK.
Then save it in the same folder as your other Breezin Form files and folders.
Now go to the back end of the website you want to install the package to. It must also have Breeziin forms component already installed. Go to Breezin Forms Configuration page and click on Package Installer.
Install a Package
To install a package, here's what you'll need to do.
Click on 'Package Installer' at the bottom of the Configuration screen. This will bring up the Package installer screen:
Choose Upload Package from client. Then browse to the XML file on your laptop.
Then click on the "Install Package" icon locate at the top of the right-hand side of the page. If the transfer was successful, you will see the following report:. Click on Continue.
Package Installation Report
Once installed, you will be directed to a Package Installation Report which contains a summary of the information provided by the package creator.
Click on "Continue" to complete the installation. Your form should now be accessible through the 'Manage Forms' link.
So once you create a form for any one of your websites, you will be able to migrate it to any other website.
