Quickly and easily build forms with a simple drag-and-drop interface and in-place editing.
Every few days I think "i wish it could do this" and then I look and it has the option for it. support for pro is very helpful too. To see a very long form succesfully created with formidable check out: http://reslife.wnmu.edu/apply/
Being the non-technical member of a very technical team, I can't praise Formidable Pro highly enough. It's a fantastic tool that puts a lot of power in the hands of this non-tech in a very straight forward way.
And when what I need isn't so straight forward, my team has the unparalleled support from the Formidable Pro team to turn to. Seriously, there are a lot of plugins out there and a lot of paid plugins, but you will never ever find the kind of support that comes with the shockingly low price of this one.
For all of those complaining that the free version of Formidable doesn't sing, dance, do back flips and make them coffee - put your big boy panties on and cough up extraordinarily reasonable price for this amazing tool and the unheard of support that comes with it. It's the right tool for the job and worth way more than the price.
My team uses Formidable Pro as a linchpin in our toolset for creating complex applications on top of WordPress.
The combination of shortcodes, add-ons, hooks, code examples, documentation and support means I can use Formidable Pro to cut weeks off development cycles.
Add-ons provide support for registration, paypal payments, google maps, pen/tablet handwritten input, re-captcha, posts, post_meta and user_meta fields, taxonomies, uploads, and more.
In combination with any plugin that creates custom post types and taxonomies, you can use Formidable Pro to make just about anything.
Built-in tools make creation of reports with pie charts, bar charts, and graphs a simple shortcode, and Formidable Pro's Views capability lets you create calendars of entries and/or format output to your heart's content.
I could go on and on about how great it is, but the bottom line is that Formidable Pro is so much more than just a "form building" plugin that it can single-handedly replace multiple plugins or a purpose-built theme.
Formidable Pro has become a standard tool in Broad Street Networks Tool box. Our go to plugin for forms management and so much more.
Above all else, the Formidable Pro team abides by dogged determined never-say-die support principles that brings peace of mind in pushing a tool in unexpected ways.
Simply put.. I have not come across a plugin development team more committed to solving problems big and small.
Kudo to the software and just as important kudos to the team that backs it up everyday.
if you are unsure whether to invest your money in gf or ff, i can tell you, you should buy ff! trust in me! biggest advantage of ff: you can change the html markup for the frontend.
in gf this is IMPOSSIBLE. a joke if you ask me. there you can just make some css changes to your forms. but ff provides advanced changes to the html code it produces – great!
This plug-in is EXTREMELY powerful and frankly a VERY good deal for what you pay. I have been able to build an entire web-based legal case management "program" out of it. It has numerous capabilities and is constantly being updated and strengthened. The possibilities of what you can do with this are huge. Also, the support team is fabulous. Very responsive, and they stick with you until you figure things out. 5+ stars for formidablepro!
This plugin is highly versatile and dependable and makes building complex forms a breeze. I’ve been a Formidable user for many years and will be for many more! Wonderful developmental team and fast, Rock-Solid Support!
Extraordinarily good in every aspect, it really takes setting up forms to a new level with endless possibilities. The support is the best and most dedicated I have ever come across in 12 years of web-design. If I could give this ten stars I would.
I am blown away by the power that this plugin provides. It is so much more than just putting forms on your website. It makes so many things possible that weren't possible before. As well as awesome forms, I get to make surveys, allow people to track progress through e-courses that I offer (I avoided installing/paying for a hefty learning management system because of this plugin). I'm planning on implementing a community section of the website where people can create posts based on pre-defined questions on forms...all this is possible with Formidable.
I was tempted to go with Gravity Forms, since everyone raves about them, but the yearly subscription costs were too much for my small website. Formidable Pro does not have annually recurring fees - 'nuff said.
2/5 TWO OUT OF FIVE
I couldn't get this working in a satisfactory way. All I wanted was a 'full name' field, but the basic insists on placing a secnd name filed to the right of the first, even when the back end wizard has the field removed. :?
