How can a migrate Form Maker from one site to another?

If you want to migrate Form Maker database tables from one WordPress site to another, you need to follow the instructions below.

Please uninstall Form Maker if you have it installed on your second site first, then proceed with these steps:

On your first WordPress site:

  1. Go to PHPMyAdmin of your site,
  2. open your WordPress site database,
  3. select Export menu item,
  4. change the radio button from Quick to Custom,
  5. unselect all tables and select the following 7 tables:

[wp1_prefix]_formmaker
[wp1_prefix]_formmaker_blocked
[wp1_prefix]_formmaker_query
[wp1_prefix]_formmaker_sessions
[wp1_prefix]_formmaker_submits
[wp1_prefix]_formmaker_themes
[wp1_prefix]_formmaker_views

(where [wp1_prefix] is your WordPress database prefix)

  1. scroll all the way down and press the Go button. This should export an SQL file containing those 7 tables.

On your second WordPress site:

  1. Go to your WordPress database,
  2. select Import menu item,
  3. browse for the exported SQL file,
  4. scroll all the way down and press Go button. This should import Form Maker tables to your WordPress database.

Now you need to change the prefix for those tables to the one that is set for your second WordPress database.

  1. Select [wp1_prefix]_formmaker table from the left pane of PHPMyAdmin of your second WordPress database,
  2. select Operations menu item from the top menu
  3. scroll to Table Options box and edit the value of Rename table to field with the second WordPress database prefix, so that the table name now looks like this: [wp2_prefix]_formmaker (where [wp2_prefix] is your second WordPress database prefix)
  4. do the same for other 6 tables.
  5. go to your second WordPress administration panel and install the Form Maker.

That’s it! Now you should have your forms, submissions, and themes all set up.

Characters in the submission CSV file do not appear correctly. How can I fix this?

Please note, that this problem is not caused by Form Maker plugin. It is rather a formatting issue in Excel. However, you can prevent it the following way:

  • Please open a new Microsoft Excel document first. Then go to Data tab from the menu and click on From Text.
  • Choose the CSV file you need to view. You’ll see a pop-up window with several options, you’ll find the File Origin option along with them.
  • Please select Unicode (UTF-8) for this dropdown and click Next if you need to edit other options, or just Finish to insert the document.

The special characters in the CSV submissions of your forms should appear correctly afterwards.

I do not receive any submission emails of my forms. How can this be fixed?

This might be a problem related to the hosting configurations of your website. You can check that the following way.

Please install WP SMTP plugin and go to Settings > WP SMTP page. Scroll down to the bottom and send a test mail to your email address.

If the test email will be sent, then the issue is triggered by Form Maker plugin. Please contact Web-Dorado Customer Care at support@web-dorado.com. Our developers will have a closer look.

But if the test mail fails, the problem is on the server of your website. Please contact your hosting provider in this case, and ask them to enable mail functions on your site.

My forms do not submit due to Javascript errors. How can they be eliminated?

This problem could be related to permission settings of Form Maker files on your web server. Please check that the following way.

Connect to your website files via FTP connection and open the following two directories:

wp-content/uploads/form-maker-frontend/js/
wp-content/uploads/form-maker-frontend/css/

Please make sure all .css and .js files in these folders have their permissions set to 777.

If the permissions are correct, please do not hesitate to contact Web-Dorado Customer Care at support@web-dorado.com.

Is it possible to pass parameters from the page URL to form fields?

To fill in values of parameters from a URL into Form Maker fields, it is necessary to implement a custom script. Please navigate to Form Options > Javascript page and add the following code inside before_load() function:

function getParameterByName(name, url) {
   if (!url) {
      url = window.location.href;
   }
   name = name.replace(/[[]]/g, "$&");
   var regex = new RegExp("[?&]" + name + "(=([^&#]*)|&|#|$)"),
   results = regex.exec(url);
   if (!results) return null;
   if (!results[2]) return '';
   return decodeURIComponent(results[2].replace('/+/g', " "));
}
jQuery("#{{field_id}}").val(getParameterByName("{{param_name}}"));
jQuery("#{{field_id}}").attr("class", "input_active");

Where {{field_id}} is the ID of the field you wish to prefill. Also, {{param_name}} is the name of the parameter in the URL.

Reviews

Just works

Great plugin, i’ve used it for some time and haven’t had problems yet. recommended!

Even I Can Get Great Results!

I used WordPress several years ago but let my site go dormant. Upon returning to it recently I found it even easier to create professional looking pages, shopping links, and everything else needed foe e-commerce today. My sincere thanks to the developers for relentlessly improving the tools!

Full-featured and well supported

We switched to Form Maker after forms made with a well-known competitor started intermittently failing to display as completed, and tests with another competitor determined that it did not truly offer a feature we need (the ability to generate posts from form entries.)

We had some problems initially with layout settings not working. The developer’s support rep offered to check it out using temporary admin access. They found a conflict with another plugin (which fortunately we didn’t really need.) Since then the plugin and add-on have worked very well.

Great Support

The customer care team is really responsive, and special thanks to Agapi for the prompt and effective advices.

Could be a good extension if …

I installed this plugin 3 months ago and I bought additional extensions (calculator …). To this day, I still have 3 bugs and I have no exchange with the support.
I had to disable the paid extensions and I have to regularly do manual actions.
It is very disappointing.
J’ai installé ce plugin il y a 3 mois et j’ai accheté des extensions supplémentaire (calculator…). A ce jour, j’ai toujours 3 bugs et je n’ai plus aucun échange avec le support.
J’ai du désactiver les extensions payantes et je dois régulièrement faire des actions manuelles.
C’est très décevant.
