The problem was the order of my include. Koen, thank you so much for combining those previous messages into one thread (and sorry to regurgitate the same question). 

All the best,

Hi Scott,

In this list there is already a topic "new form element".
I quote Francois Suter's answer(s):

There's a static TypoScript file coming with the new form extension. Make sure to include it *after* css_styled_content. Also make sure that you have no customizations of the old mailform object in your TypoScript, that may override the new TS from "form".

And also:

Hi Matt,

> 1) In the email sent how can I change the from email to the one the form submitter entered?

This is done by pointing to the email field in the TypoScript definition of the form:

postProcessor {
    1 = mail
    1 {
        recipientEmail = foo at bar.com
        senderNameField = name
        senderEmailField = email

> 2) Similarly, how do you set the subject instead of using the default?

That's unfortunately not possible. I stumbled on this the other day. I consider this a bug, but had no opportunity to submit a patch for it.

> 3) I've installed reCaptcha but can't seem to get it to show up in the form wizard. Can this not be done?

No idea there, sorry.


Some more hints:
- At last I noticed that when you open an existing form in the wizard, you'll need a little patience.

- There's a good manual in the extension folder. (typo3_src-4.6.3/typo3/sysext/form/Documentation/Manual/en/manual.sxw)

Kind regards,
