    The form article is used to show certain Jentla features on site. It uses action fields and works together with a base article, mapped under the same category and using the same action fields. (!) Be noticed that a form article cannot be published without using a base article.

    You can create a form article using action fields already mapped to a category, or,  you can create a new category and map yourself the action fields to it. To do so, follow the link towards extra information about Jentla Action Fields for JMH
