Support » Plugin: Caldera Forms - More Than Contact Forms » Good form with bad instruction

  • I’ll start with saying they you have a nice job done.
    But I’m giving you 3/5 because you’re missing the key things.

    I spent too much time trying to conclude how to integrate a form on a page. You need to have a simple instructions for everyone; from a shortcode to php code.
    I can’t even find out where can I see the ID of a form. You have hashed the ID if I can notice? Why?

    Hi there,

    I’m always super impressed when people try my stuff, and then take the time to leave a review. That always indicates I did something worth talking about. So thank you for taking the time to try it out. Your support is very much appreciated.

    With regards to your issues, I agree that the explanations of things are missing. Having been developing this by myself, I see the code and the screens all the time and know where everything is without having to think, and I forget that some things are not so obvious.

    If you don’t mind, I would love to get your input on making the usage of forms more clear. I have noted the shortcode and PHP code and will address that in the next update. But is there anything else that can add to clarify things that could warrant a two star jump?

    I really want this to be an easy experience from all levels of users, so your input will indeed be vital to achieve that.

    I really appreciate the support, Thanks.
    ~ David

    Hey David,
    I’m glad you responded super fast.

    I perfectly understand what you say and I agree with it.
    That’s why you need to get my message as a suggestion only, not critics or anything negative.

    I put 3/5 intentionally. If I had put 4/5 or 5/5, you wouldn’t maybe pay attention on my comment as you did now.

    Imagine someone browsing for a plugin he wants. Sometimes one can spend literally hours dong this. And when find what he needs, he encounter another issue (like not clear instructions in this case) – just another waste of time…

    It can easily make people keep browsing for another plugin.

    If you can include a shortcode instructions in next update, I’ll be glad to give you 5/5 stars, what you actually deserve.

    If you look through other reviews, I try to thank and address concerns on all of them, recently though I have been busy and haven’t had a chance to say thanks.

    What caught my attention was not the rating, but the suggestion about showing the PHP and shortcode since I have already started addressing it as mentioned here:

    But thanks for the reminder, I see some great reviews that I need to thank.

    Awesome. Looking forward for the update.

    Keep up the nice work!
