Support » Plugin: Calculated Fields Form » Very Nice, Powerful Plugin! Recommended For Site Owners Wanting Custom Calcs.

  • I spent a fair amount of time looking into the calculator plugins out there along with how other websites like mine are handling their custom calculators. Usually it’s some Javascript and a somewhat ugly, clunky layout that I would rather avoid. Ugh!

    My goal (hope) was to improve the authority of my site and drive more traffic by adding useful tools people love and I know keywords exist for. Instead of hiring a custom developer, I was able to use Calculated Field Forms for somewhat more advanced calculations than standard calc. plugins offer. I’ve been happy with the results!

    I also paid for custom design work and it was done quickly and small changes/fixes weren’t a problem. The plugin author is really smart and can do all kinds of conditional logic functions, user input value matching/array data (comparing values and acting accordingly for different outputs), displaying my custom images, rounding, and much more.

    The end result turned out very well and I tweaked the layout/styling a bit with some CSS, which a CSS box is provided for. JS is loaded for the calcs. but I was able to delay loading in WP Rocket to keep page speed good but functionality is still ok so far.

    I tweaked the layout on mobile so mine are mobile friendly unlike other sites with similar calculators and look better too!

    Definitely recommend! It’s very powerful, so understand there’s a learning curve but it’s worth it if you have specific needs and want some great results. The cons I think are that the documentation needs to be better and that mobile layout should be better by default, but those are fairly minor complaints. (I used 2-column fields and a snippet or two of CSS for that)

    2 custom calcs so far and I’m already thinking of my next ideas – happy with my results. 🙂
