General information about 'Form and List'-module

Using the 'Form and List'-module you can add a Form or a List to the page. The module is pretty complex; so only a part of the possibilities is documented here: the records are show in a simple list, edited in a form and stored in the database of the portal.

The creation of a list from scratch is not documented yet. A previously created template of a contactslist is used.
