Sometimes you do not need section to demonstrate articles. You only need users to submit forms and save form result for future processing. The examples are surveys, order product form or even contact us form.

The key here is to make section unaccessible from frontend. Only allow user to submit form, but use section articles list view only for administrativ purpose. Here is the key points.

  1. Never publish link to section in Joomla menu accessible for other users.
  2. In type set redirect after submission to special URL and create url to static Joomla article with confirmation and congratulation text.
  3. Hide all buttons on the form except Save and Close.
