WP Libre Form

Description

Use standard HTML5 markup to create fully functional forms for WordPress

Features

  • Uses only HTML5 syntax to build forms. No GUIs, shortcodes, no bullshit
  • Works with any valid HTML form. Just copy any form from any website and it will work. It’s magic!
  • Submissions are saved as custom post type posts. Form values are saved as custom fields.
  • Validates required fields tagged with the native HTML5 required attribute.
  • It’s hackable. Add your own validation or automation with hooks and APIs.
  • Email notifications of received form submissions
  • Full file upload support to Media Library with input type=file
  • Multilingual support with Polylang

Why?

Modern HTML markup is already a great way to build forms. With Libre Form, there’s no need to learn clunky form builders that are hard to customise.

Just use standard HTML inputs to build, or copy a form to your WordPress site that will just magically work. No need to touch PHP code if you don’t want to.

Required field validation, email notifications, file uploads to WP gallery and lots more are included by default in the core of the plugin but you can also add your own functionality with hooks and APIs provided by Libre Form.

Reviews

Developer friendly stuff 😍

No tears (except of joy) when using this plugin and making customized form flows for submit and handling. And the best part is that every single thing can be changed with actions, yet every submission is show so simple that dashboard users understands those.

Very developer friendly

Well it just works. I had some trouble in the beginning but after a quick support message I was told to add the “name”-attribute to the inputs. I guess I missed that in the first hand. Everything works smoothly and feels great.

The only downside I can imagine is to use this in projects for customers as the customers rarely have any HTML-knowledge and therefore can’t build forms by themselves. But this plugin isn’t straight targeted for them either so no minus points for that!
