Support » Plugins » Visual form builder issues – Please help!

  • Hello all. First of all, thanks go out to the developers of wordpress and all the wonderful plugins and themes. I’m new here and to wordpress, but I’m finding it mostly easy to get around.

    I’m having a problem understanding how to get data back out of whatever table Visual Form Builder puts it in after a form is submitted. So far I’ve found the table I think it is stored in called wp_visual_form_builder_entries. However, when trying to query that table with any keywords such as the title of a form field, I get nothing.

    I am using php code in a page using exec-php plugin. Is there some special code to do this? Am I using the wrong table? If wrong table then what should I be using?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  • Hey Justin,

    The submitted data is stored as a serialized array, so it may not be easily queried.

    Hey Matthew, Thanks for the reply.

    Is there any way to query or search the entered data at all?

    I’m willing to learn new stuff always, so if there is any way please let me know.

    I’ve built a form and my boss likes it so i’d like to keep it looking the way it is.



    At this time, you’d have to export the data as a CSV and perform your search that way.

    Is there any way to search the records of column data from table wp_visual_form_builder_entries separately?
    Because data fields stores the all form fields values combined.

    Hi Matthew, thanks for the info. Unfortunately I must have the search done on the website for this to work the way we want, so I may have to look into another form plugin.

    Are there any other plugins you can recommend to me?

    Thanks much for your help!

    Matthew Muro,I use your visual-form-builder 2.6.7 plugin.I wanna display the data which is submitted by the user, in my front page instead of admin panel,How can i do that?please help me..

    Hello Matthew Muro,

    I am using your Visual Form Builder Pro Ver. 2.1 to create a form that has over 114 fields (including the mandatory fields).

    Issue is:
    Any fields I add beyond that become bullet-ed fields which is corrupted data. How can this be fixed?

    This form is for contractors to complete daily after a day of work on their job-site.
