    This plugin (actually the PRO version) used to be tops in my book. Easy to use, great conditional logic, ability to group and segment – the list of its praises goes on and on. Seriously, this was a kick-ass plugin.

    Then updates to 3.X came along and setting conditionals became awful and laborious. Grouping no longer exists so that I can’t enable/disable an entire group with ONE conditional. Conditionals used to be in a drop-down so you knew what to select, now you have to type the whole thing in. Really, guys?

    Upgrading also resulted in horrendous permission problems that required someone to log into my site to fix (I could have done it if they would have published what to do).

    The whole thing is a train wreck, and I am extremely sad and disappointed that something as good at version 2.X was in all respects got so destroyed. For the life of me, I cannot figure out why this was done, but I am looking for a replacement for ALL my sites.

    Save yourself the trouble now and leave.

  • Any recommendations on an alternative? I agree, I’ve been using this plugin on various sites for years…now it’s just not the tool it once was.

    I have been trying out Caldera Forms. So far, so good.
