The user can enter a Title for their suggestion and enter the suggestion itself in a free text box. Once everything is filled in, the user clicks on the [Save] button on the bottom of the form. The Suggestion will be submitted to the backend.

If you have allowed [Suggest Media] for Guest users in [Settings Frontend], then Guest users will see a CAPTCHA image underneath the form and a text box where they have to enter the code generated. Registered users will NOT see a CAPTCHA,
