    Do you have a preferred location for bug reporting, cause I have a few. In the mean time, here they are:
    1.In the advanced options for the check box, where it says enter options, one per line, if I enter something like, "yes, please contact me" when you update/publish, it separates them into two check boxes, one for "yes", and one for "please contact me".
    2.There is an extra space between the label and the input box for name.
    3.The Submit button is misspelled.

    Hi. I don't have already a location for bug submits but you can do it here ;)
    Well the first a is funny one! Yes I will verify what is the issue located and upload a new version.
    The second one I can't get it, please can you explain a better where did you find this?
    Yes, I'm sorry for my huge mistake :$ It's 'Submit' not 'Submmit'
    Thank you very much!

    Sure. Created a new form, named it. Added Name, Phone, and email. No other changes. Looking at the source, it's the table styling causing the space:

    td {
    padding-bottom:20px;
    }

    if I remove that (with firebug) it looks correct.

    Great plugin by the way. Would love to see a captcha object.

    Hello again! :)

    I think td styling is not from plugins css... maybe your theme!

    In advance, newer versions of the plugin will use a more xhtml compliant style for forms like

    • ;)

      New version upload soon!

      Thank you for your reviews :D

    D'oh, you're right. It was my code. But it brings up a potential irritating conflict. I was able to fix it by removing my css, OR explicitly setting it at 0 in your css. Maybe you could add a padding:0 and margin:0 to ul.wp_form table, ul.wp_form table tr, ul.wp_form table tr td? or should I just shut up now?

    You shouldn't not at all :)

    The conflict here is that if I add a style to plugins css it could potentially conflict with other themes.

    Off course, there are too many themes to create "fixes" for each one of them, and an infinite number of selectors would be put to the test and our goal is not modify the themes css...

    For instance, the problem can be put another point of view: I could ask you why do you need a padding-bottom: 20px for tables, tr and td in your theme. See? ;) That's the problem!

    Anyway Thank you in advance for your time reviewing this plugin I hope you enjoy having it in your site :)

    Safari 4.1.2 browser

    Forms 0.2.6 version

    - Looks like there are real problems with checkboxes, multiple choice and dropdowns. Existing and newly created components causes the items entered into the advanced window to just be listed as one long list when actually viewing live in the browser. They look fine when viewed in the editor except that sometimes I see { and } added to the actual text. This really needs to be fixed ASAP since this is affecting existing forms also. Ugh....

    - Need better doc on what has been changed from version to version so I can choose not to upgrade and screw things up... :) An easy "downgrade" would be awesome too.

    - Need ability to place more than one component on a line beside each other. Allow "really small" entry fields for things like State abbreviations, zip codes, etc.

    - Really needs CAPTCHA

    Otherwise a great tool!

    Ahhhh... I think I see the issue with the combos, etc.

    You added a "," separates instead of each one on a separate line as the directions in the advanced box still says. Found this in the "changelog".

    It seems to work in the live browser, but a "," is appended to the end of the text.

    I spoke too soon... :) It seems that every time the form is edited/updated, the values in these lists are modified and it looks like maybe end-of-line characters are inserted and it messes up the formatting again so that the "," seems to be ignored.

    The process of having very tiny boxes is on thw way ;)

    The idea is not have captcha but akismet integrated with the forms!

    Well. Really weird bug. This is because I'm not "too good" in javascript hahaha!
    I will analyse this algorythm and see what can I do to perform this actions without these kind of errors

    Thank you for your time posting here!

    About Docs, I don't have time now to create new documentation... and I think I will need someone to join the cause of developing this plugin. Anyone interested? :P

    Maybe there is a problem with the CSS of your theme

    I am having the same issues with the dropdowns, all are appearing on the same line. also, my margins are too wide on the right side. The form is running off of the page. Any ideas?

    the margins were off because the dropdown and multipule choice were not functioning correctly. they were running off the page because they were sitting next to eachother and not dropping down. I went back into the dropdown and multipule choice and inserted a - or " or ' before the first word and it works perfectly now. I was even able to go back and remove the - " ' later and it's still formatted perfectly both in the form and on my page. Weird, but awesome!

    Real problems with this plugin:
    Added a form which has a large drop down list (all the counties in the UK) and for some reason that is interpretted as a hug string so the form width is such that it is unusable - cant get at the edit buttons any more.
    So, any suggestions on how to use this?

    I just tried to add the form to a page, and the pop up opening is just empty.

    I also have problems with drop downs. It is annoying but after entering the elements a few times, it worked...

    When I submit the form, it would also be good to have some loading icon or something and maybe replace the form by the success message to clearly show that the form has been sent.

    Otherwise, the form building was nice and easy.

    You know this is a beta release.
    New improvements to dropdowns, buttons, width, etc... will be done in next releases.
    Please, stay in touch!

    Note: please don't mark this plugin as broken because it isn't broken. It's your choice to review, but remember that each case is unique.
    Although we are doing such improvements, we need to put a lot of hard work in it, so time consuming.

    That's great! But I don't think it is said in the first page of the plugin that it is still a beta. I saw it in the FAQ but not on the first page... This might avoid people tagging it as broken.

    New version 0.2.7 fixes this. I would like to know any reports here.
    Thank you all for the support :)

    Great plugin! I hope it continues to be developed :)

    I just updated to 0.2.7 which fixes the bug of having all dropdowns on one line.

    I am also having a problem of checkboxes having to be clicked twice to be selected. This first click seems to activate it and the second actually holds the checkmark. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Thanks!

    Hi. I'm facing the same issue with Firefox 4 Beta. Are you using it?

    Hi. I'm on a Mac... I'm experiencing it on Firefox 3.6.13. Also Opera 11.00. It doesn't happen in Safari. Thanks!

    May have some insight into the check boxes. In build.helper.php, in the form_checkbox function, if you explicitly set an attribute of checked='false' or checked='true' the checkboxes will render checked (for some reason) but can be unchecked and checked with only one click.

    Hopefully this points you in the right direction. I would love to help, but my familiarity with plugin structure is very limited.
