Is there an easy way to indicate to the user that a field is mandatory of their (like plone has the little red square)?
Put an asterisk next to it on the form in edit mode.
Or put all the mandatory fields in a kupu table with a tinted background and a Required Fields heading.
Or customize skins/cmfplomino_templates/Fields.pt and/or skins/cmfplomino_templates/TEXTFieldEdit.pt etc to put the asterisk there for you.
It would be good if Plomino added a "mandatory" CSS class to such fields, so that you could supply a CSS file to put the red block or the asterisk there.
well, that is not the Plomino approach, Plomino forms are edited in WYSIWYG mode, the form generator just focuses on the fields themselves, the rest (labels, layout, etc…) is unchanged, so the author manage it exactly the way he wants
if you need a marker to indicate mandatory fields, you do it in the form layout using the rich text editor
that's true, I like the idea
we will do that
On the form layout, I've been adding the following span to make the look and feel consistent with the rest of plone:
<span class="fieldRequired" title="Required"> (Required) </span>
