Addittional Info

This plugin is translation ready. This is very important for all users worldwide. So please contribute your language to the plugin to make it even more useful:)

You don’t have to memorize any shortcode for your forms. The correspong shortcode for each form is generated dynamically when you create a new form and they are always available in the “Forms” section under “Data Storage” menu page.
If you ever had a question,suggestions, comments or just wanted to say hi, you’re always welcome to drop me a line.

Note: In some rare cases, when you reorder the form fields in the backend and delete/edit the fields at the same time, the order that you see in the backend might not be the same order that you see in the frontend. So check the frontend to make sure it has the same order that you see in the backend. This is just happening in rare cases and only in a particular condition.

FAQ

Why the user doesn’t receive the confirmation email?

Make sure you have selected “Email” as the “Field Type” when defining the form fields. This is important and have two benefits : First, you’ll be sure that the user has to put a correctly formatted email address. And second, you’ll be sure that the user receives the confirmation/thank you email.

Reviews

very good plugin

This plugin is very smart developed. Just input the data you want to store by a form and output them everywhere you need them. But the main advantage of the plugin is the developer himself. He develops solutions for certain problems very fast and very smart. Absolute recommendable plugin!

Responsive Developer

Plugin works as advertised. It was almost exactly what I needed, so I emailed the developer and she helped me make the modifications I needed to make it do exactly what our site needs. This plugin has a shortcode for displaying the collected data onto the front end of your site. In my searching this is a unique feature that was just what I was looking for.

Highly Recommendable! (5 Stars!)

A must-have plugin for those seeking to collect and store data from front-end users. Its super easy and user-friendly interface makes it deserve five stars already! I would say is the best of its kind in simplicity and yet having all the necessary features; So thoughtful of the author! And a big appreciation goes to her for having developed such a solution for novice people like me 🙂 Certainly recommendable!
