Ok this is a bit tough to explain but here is what I want to do. I'd like to create a form where a person is able to enter multiple information from the same fields. Below is the example

name: _____________   email:_____________

(this is a button to allow you to enter more)

(Submit Button)

When you click on the button you get an extra line with the same content to enter. In this scenario the user would have clicked on the button 2x.

name: _____________ email:_____________

name: _____________ email:_____________

name: _____________ email:_____________

 (this is a button to allow you to enter more)

(Submit Button)

The reason for this is because it makes it much easier to add lots of items quickly instead of doing 1 at a time.

Hi

Are you aware of Group X?

If not, then this might suit you, if you can understand how to use it. I will help if I can.

If you are aware of groupX, then what is it you need to achieve that groupX does not do for you?

Thank you very very much bucklash,

No I'm not familiar with using group x I've tried looking up tutorial on it but its all in german.  Clicked on solved by mistake, when I select group x as a type and the content type (form) save and insert it into the main body if I try to look at it in the front end it breaks the form. If I remove the groupx field it works. Am I doing something wrong?

Ok so I think I got it to make a groupx field you have to remove the parts from the form that I want to have as multi and create a new form with just those fields. Then in the original form that I want the fields in click on the + button and add groupx and select the new form.

hi

Yes, you pretty much have it. 

I think of it as:

FieldX: repeat a field

GroupX: repeat a content type

There is a field called group which has no repeat option. 

As far as I am aware, groupx does not respect any settings like 'live value' set in the content type you are repeating.
