Inefficient anti-spam measures
By ,

I bought the pro version of this product and loved it, until I started getting hundreds of spam submissions each day. It is now useless.

After letting the developers know, I was told to purchase the math question captcha. I was not given a price, or a link. I told them I didn't feel I should have to purchase another product to make the original product I purchased work. They should update their product so users can utilize anti-spam measures that actually work.

So, this product is great, but you will eventually get spammed and then it becomes useless.

Only 7 fields in free version... use contact form instead !

Some basic items are also missing in this plugin.
But the concept is nice.

Below average customer service and errors
By , for WP 3.6.1

I run a residental management company, and I needed this plugin. After I updated my WordPress, it stopped redirecting the submissions to my e-mail. However I could still see them on the CPanel.

I wrote it in the forum, didn't get a reply for a day so I sent an email to customer service. They asked for my login details and I gave them.

When I checked it out last night, things got worse, but I thought that would be ok, they are on it. 12 hours after I checked out my website, they still didn't correct it.

Good thing that I had backup my website before things got worse. If my customers submit a form, they will be confused.(After you submit the form you see some coding)

If you have said, "sorry we messed things up a bit" 12 hours ago, I would have done the restore back then.

Hopefully the "restoring" my website won't take too long, and everything will get back to normal (normal = I am settled for "my submissions not being redirected to my e-mail")

When it is working, this plugin was good, really good, it really made a difference.

I am at my Office, hoping that the restore I requested will be done ASAP, so that my potential customers won't be confused.

I paid $39 for this plugin, and I expected a better customer service.

only faked reviews??
By , for WP 3.6.1

This is the first and last time I purchased a plugin for WP. I paid quite a bit of money for a plugin that not only produces really dirty html code but is extremely buggy. Records are not stored, CAPTCHA doesn't work and last but not least I don't receive any emails.

I think the reviews here are mostly faked as this is close to malware and just thought to pull your money from your pockets.

Poor front end coding lets it down badly
By , for WP 3.6

Good:
The back end of the plugin works nicely and allows you to create forms easily, although the free version limits you to four fields plus a submit button.

Bad:
Tables! The forms are output in layers upon layers of nested tables rather than using divs and spans. This makes it practically impossible to do any serious layout customisation and also makes the forms useless on responsive/adaptive sites.

Form fields are given fixed pixel heights and widths, which further limits your ability to customise the layout.

It's two years since the WordPress default theme became responsive, so it'd be really nice if plugins made an effort to output code that would work in the default theme at most screen sizes.

A quick W3C validation check shows errors throughout the forms, mainly because of the tables.

If all you want to do is add a simple form to your site I'm sure it'll do the job, but if you want full control over the layout or to have a responsive/adaptive website this isn't the plugin for you.

Don't bother
By , for WP 3.4.2

Installed the plugin and started building only to be told by a pop up that you can only have 5 fields in the free version. So I can't even test what I needed before I have to purchase. Don't bother with this and use another resource. I can't type on here the words which have come out of my mouth. Fewmin.

Garbage
By , for WP 3.5

I guess this plugin has many fake ratings. But a five fields limitation makes the free version almost completely unusable.

Not so good as Fake 5 star reviews suggest
By , for WP 3.4.2

First, you can only use 5 form fields with the free version and that INCLUDES the submit button, so it's really only 4 fields.

It automatically sends an email to the person who submitted the form with an ugly table that's supposed to contain the values that the person submitted, but it doesn't work. All of the fields are blank even though I can see in the database that the values were saved. There is no user-friendly option to turn off the emails to submitters or to turn-off the addition of the ugly form table.

I expect I'll be uninstalling this soon and looking for another form solution.
