The admin ui feels like home in WordPress and helps you to keep track of your form structure. No matter if simple or complex forms, you never get lost in the process and this makes it a huge advantage over classic drag-from-left-to-right form builders.

All kinds of forms are possible: contact forms, job application forms, feedback forms, order forms, questionnaires, payments, pay to download files and anything else you can think of that requires to collect data from your visitors.

BreezingForms is well supported, frequently updated and one of the most popular form builders. We also add new features if demanded. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you find something is missing.

FAQ

Q. After installation, I always get the configuration screen. How can I get past it?

A. Please make sure the file and folder permissions are set correctly. The webserver use has to be able to write into the /wp-content/ folder.

Q. When I save a form I get a “catchable fatal error”. What to do?

A. This is most likely a permission issue. Please make sure to apply the appropriate rights to your files and folders. You can also try to 777 the folder /wp-content/breezingforms/ajax_cache/ (or create it if it doesn’t exist). Please revert the permissions once you are sure that this was the reason.

Q. My form doesn’t send emails. What did I do wrong?

A. Most likely nothing. Please go to BreezingForms => Configuration => and enable SMTP. The default PHP email system often causes trouble. Usually, SMTP works best. Also make sure you enter the SMTP login and server data correctly (if required by the server) and that you give a proper Mailfrom address. Also make sure that email notifications are enabled in your form.

Q. I am pretty sure the permissions on my server are correct, but I still can’t get past the setup screen (or still getting “catchable fatal error”). What else can I do?

A. If not exists, create the folder /wp-content/breezingforms/. Inside that folder, create an empty file called “facileforms.process.php”. Open BreezingForms again and see if you can get past the setup this time. If you still get “catchable fatal error”, try the FTP layer settings in the facileforms.config.php. The FTP can help fixing permission issues.

Q. Where do I find uploaded files?

A. By default, all uploads go into /wp-content/breezingforms/uploads/. You can change the upload folder in the main configuration or for each upload element in its advanced configuration.

Q. Where do I put a form theme?

A. All themes go into the folder /wp-content/breezingforms/themes/. After that, the theme will be available from the theme selection in the form editor.

Q. I want to edit the appearance of the PDF. How can I do that?

A. You find the templates for the PDFs in /wp-content/breezingforms/pdftpl/. One template is for record exports, the other for attachments.

Very Flexible Plugin

I really like this plugin, it’s simple yet very powerful.
I used it on few of my projects and was able to build the forms I wanted.

The scripts and pieces make it a very powerful plugin, and probably everything developers would ever need for all their forms.

Also you can find many examples / guides on BreezingForms forum, which I found very handy.

Great Plugin !

No support and misleading advertising – a time and money hog

Pros:
– Good for those who have tons of time, no money, and want to play.
– Its like assembly language that is hard to debug and build functionality.

Cons:
– Support team no more replies to requests.
– Not for WordPress site.
– False advertising of available features.
– Bugs bugs and bugs.
– Most features need tweaking and coding.
– Requires expert level programming skills.
– Requires a programmer one month to make it work.
– Not for professional sites.

I’d never recommend this to anyone. Save your time and spend money on established products who might charge more but stand behind advertised features.

Breezing Forms does not have a refund policy and they never return money. They also don’t provide any support. Very unprofessional and unethical.

The worst SUPPORT I've ever experienced !!!

No need to search, on wordpress in any case, this plugin is FULL of bugs ! Very long to learn, it’s after you ‘ll spend days creating the form of your dreams that you will realize that nothing works as expected.

The icing on the cake, BREEZIING FORM is, by far, the worst support I ‘ve experienced. WEEKS to solve a problem. They just don’t answer!

And I’ve used a paid version, not a demo… It’s a shame!

When I asked for a refund, my account was simply disabled because they says that I don’t paid for support… cause you have to pay for the plugin AND also for the support!!!!

The company stinks!!!

Underwhelming

After sampling some of the other form plugins out there, Breezing Form’s interface is painfully cludgey, outdated and unintuitive. Desperately needs user experience improvements.
