I have install Form Builder module and Webform module.

Webform module: Create form feature

Form Builder: Integrate into webform for more friendly user by click and drag

Recently I realize form builder is a annoying module. Here are the problem cause by form builder:

1) Problem: Unable to multiple select list.

Solution: Webform module has a checkbox for multiple select. Just check will do. Unfortunately, does not appear in form builder.

2) Install Webform Hints module(Placeholder feature): Does not appear in form builder.

As you can see without form builder, I realize all this features can be done by webform itself.

Now I uninstall form builder and face another stupid problem cause by form builder. Form component link is not working. Cant edit form unless I install back form builder module. See the picture below. I super regret to install such a useless module.

What should I do?

  • It will help if you shorten your question to the direct problem. You've just mentioned 2 different modules with completely different purposes, form builder & webform, plus side modules for webform: webform hints and maybe webform link? Are you saying webform link component links aren't showing up on your webform?

First off, I think you misunderstand what form builder is for. As it's project page says ...

... [it] does not provide any permanent mechanism for saving data with the created forms. In other words, it does nothing but build the form....

It's a utility for building form data structures, not for creating and capturing data for forms.

The module you're looking for, as you've found, is webform. It provides an interface (albeit not as nice looking) to build web form content and capture data. That's the only module you need. It looks like from your image you've created a webform node. The form components tab link should present a form that allows you to add/edit components. As shown below...

enter image description here

If this interface isn't appearing I would make sure to uninstall both form builder & webform, remove form builder completely, make sure there is no node content type called webform, then try to reinstall webform again. It should work after a fresh install.
