    @crosstec

    It is pretty unfair and misleading what you are writing. And starting a review with a plain and non-helpful “Error” shows the level of your experience in technology (=zero).

    There are NO unnecessary things inside and what you call joomla is nothing else than a programming framework with the same name and not the cms. And hallo, it is 2013. These days plugins may have a bigger size than just 2MB.

    Change your review and tone or at least ask questions in our forums if you have problems instead of whining around and downrating an entire plugin for no reason.

    @itsazzad

    A plug-in’s contents are not downloaded to a client’s computer. It would not effect the overall size of your site. And by huge, it is not nearly huge enough to make even a 1% dent in your host’s allowance for storage, so what’s the problem?

    Also, like @crosstec says… error? That’s it? You gave up? Maybe the error was that you were not connected to the internet at the time? With no information and complaining before seeking a solution you miss out. Professional developers are not grocery store employees. They will not apologize to you when it is you that is making the mistake. I have found that they do appreciate knowing if a situation arises and will usually go out of their way to help. Well, most all of them… they have ignored my paid member support request for over two weeks… but that’s another story. I think it’s a mistake anyways and after awhile I stopped watching it.

    Furthermore, you are missing out on what is probably the best forms solution available on WordPress. It is powerful, easy to use, and amazing. Does more than I could have dreamed of.

    If I could attach the plugin files then I would do it. I used breezing-forms.1.2.5.17.
    Here was the file structure after I created WPISNEW:
    breezingforms-icon.png
    breezingforms.php
    BreezingFormsWidget.php
    index.html
    joomla-platform
    LICENSE
    readme.txt
    screenshot-1.png
    screenshot-2.png
    screenshot-3.png
    screenshot-4.png
    WPISNEW

    I have given full write permission getting error:

    You should have included that info 2 months ago… and preferably in the support forum, or on their website. Then the developers would have had a fair chance to correct things. Perhaps they mistakenly uploaded the joomla version of their plugin???

    Now you’ve given a developer a 1 star rating for software that imho deserves at least a 4 star rating. I tested v1.2.7.7. It has some minor bugs, but overall works great!

    Why not try the latest version?

    @yezzz Let me help elaborate. I suspect that @itszzad can work it out if we point him in the right direction.

    @itszzad OK, now you are talking, we are getting there. I am not sure what the WPISNEW directory is. Did you try just installing the plug-in through the installer in the wp-admin?

    According to the error I see above, you are trying to “put” a folder where the is no folder. If you look closely at the two paths above, they are different. Look closely:

    `file_put_contents(/…/wp-content/breezingforms/WPISNEW)
    No such file or directory in /…/wp-content/plugins/breezing-forms/joomla-platform/libraries/joomla/filesystem/file.php`

    So I am thinking that you are way off on your install. You should just be able to use the wordpress plug-in installer to get it rolling. There should be no need to upload it manually.

    If you must, it goes into the “wp-content/plugins/” folder. The folder must be named “breezing-forms”. There is no need for a WPISNEW folder.

    But this is not the place for support. I am not going to help any further because I have other stuff to do right now.
    . But you can get help, just do the following:

    You have the relevant error information. Go get the version of your current WordPress and also include the plug-in version.

    Then armed with that information, first create an account for the forum:

    Then visit the forum for the plug-in and post your query there.

    I do not mean to come off as a jerk, but really the forum is always the most appropriate place to get support. I do not mean to sound down on you or whatever, I am just trying to help out here.

    I hope that you consider going to the forums. Once you see how great this plug-in really is, you should consider coming back and editing your review. You might find that this forms plug-in is not for you. (It might do too much.) If all you require is a simple contact form, there are other solutions that are not as capable, but much simpler to use. What you gain in ease-of-use, you lose in functionality. Always a trade off. If that ends up being the case, I urge you to delete your review. I just think that it’s not fair to ding the devs for something that is your error.

    If it turns out that it is indeed their error, and the plug-in is crap then by all means leave the review stand. But from my experience both on WordPress and Joomla is that it is a reliable and powerful plug-in. I have never had it fail on install, ever.

    I wish you luck, and I wish you only success in your project.

    Last time I used another plugin which was error free.
    So when I will need again any form plugin then if I have chance to test it again, I will try to update my rating. But right now it should be <1 star as it was simply wasting of my time. You should test before uploading the package for the public.
    Better luck next time.

    You are an idiot.

    @yezzz

    Agree. Beyond help.

    Never heard of human error.

    @osmosisinc Then you are Super Idiot. And a broker!! Stupid!!!

    A broker? What does that even mean?

    Your error (that you didn’t read, as it contains the answer as to why your plug-in doesn’t work) is so bizarre. Why would anyone need a directory called “WPISNEW” inside of the “breezingforms” directory?

      • First of all, the plug-ins go in the “wp-plugins” directory inside of “wp-content” .
      • Secondly the correct directory is “breezing-forms” not the incorrect “breezingforms” directory as spelled by ding-dong up there.
      • Thirdly, except for the need to fully embrace being wrong, why have a directory called “WPISNEW” at all?

    I mean unless one is a total idiot of course.

    And then to tie the perfect circle of stupidity together, insist that the dev’s should have thought ahead enough that someone so completely stupid would try and install the plug-in outside of their actual plug-in’s folder in a custom named directory. They should have tested against that eventuality!

    It’s people like @itsazzad that make the world a bad place.

    Actually, “wpisnew” is not what itsazzad invented, it’s what the devs used:

    \wp-content\plugins\breezing-forms\platform\administrator\components\com_breezingforms\admin.breezingforms.php

    Line 80:     $wpisnew = '###';
     Line 81:     JFile::write(WP_CONTENT_DIR.DS.'breezingforms'.DS.'WPISNEW',$wpisnew);

    The above is from v1.2.7.x

    There’s lots of references to joomla in the code, so I understand where that’s coming from.

    Hey osmosisinc,
    Do you not know that you are a bad guy for the reputation of this plugin? If this plugin would be good enough for others then only my review would not affect the whole reviews. And why you people are in so much hurry for changing my review although you think me as a stupid?! Keep patience and give good service only then you can get good. Don’t search for a short-cut. My type of bad people can not harm good thing. Good always trump finally!

    @yezzz

    Then leave the review as it is.

    This world ain’t perfect.

    Peace!

    Keep it the same. Whatever. I really like these guys that is all. I am a customer, but I do not know them outside of that.

    I am pissed because I tried to help you and you were smug about me trying to help you. I went to all of the trouble to find you some links, write a full essay about what you could do to get your project off of the ground, and you didn’t even say thanks. Instead you said “Better Luck Next Time” implying that I was trying to do something else besides helping you.

    It was rude.

    Maybe the plug-in is messed up. I don’t know. In my first response I said:

    If it turns out that it is indeed their error, and the plug-in is crap then by all means leave the review stand. But from my experience both on WordPress and Joomla is that it is a reliable and powerful plug-in. I have never had it fail on install, ever.

    Leave it stand, I don’t really care that much.

    My point was that because you can’t get it to work, you should at least try and contact the dev before trying to shred their reputation. That’s all.

    @itsazzad: I have checked through your posting history and you didn’t even attempt to contact the plugin’s developer via the plugin’s dedicated sub-forum. It’s obvious from the discussion here that, had you done so, your problems would probably have been resolved. As a result, your “review” has no real merit and should be considered null & void.
