The BreezingForms plugin is a good value and a good place to start, especially if you are a beginner and don't need to implement anything fancy. If you have a little web development background and need to have some non-standard behavior features then I believe this plugin will also meet your needs as there are features that allow you to program some simple JS. For all that I would give 5 stars.
If there are any problems, however, it would be in the area of documentation and on-line help (not personal help - I'll get to that). Many times I needed to look up how something worked or what something meant and the on-line web help was really tedious to navigate. They have lots of short articles and some examples but they are not presented in an efficient way. For instance, they have a whole section of 46 "Examples and Scripts" - great! except they are all spread across 10 pages - ugh! it would be nice to see a full listing of all of them on one page, especially if you don't know what secret keyword label to search for. I also think the articles are written somewhat terse with a lot of jargon and assumptions that the users are knowledgeable. It's always better to write help articles assuming your users know very little (I'd rather help many and inconvenience a few smart people along the way!) If programmers are writing the help articles I would suggest they hire a writer/documentarian. So, bottom line is I think there is a lot of information there, it's just not presented in a user-friendly way. My opinion.
As for personal on-line help, I have the non-subscription purchase ($19 USD) so any questions I posted in the forums were not guaranteed to be answered in a timely fashion, or at all I think. I accept that since that is what I paid for (or didn't pay for!), so that's OK. But in fact all 3 questions I had were responded to asking for more info or with a suggestion. One was resolved (a JS programming question), one led me to further investigate so I was able to figure the answer on my own, and the third is still open (this one seems to be a real bug, hopefully they can get to the bottom of it). Anyway, since all 3 questions were all at least responded to I have to assume that full-subscription customers probably get good service.
Would I get this plugin again? Absolutely. 4 stars, again not 5 because of the on-line documentation situation. But, keep up the good work!
This plugin works great! Even though it has loads of options, it's not hard to master the basics with a little effort. It will be well worth it.
The scripts and pieces make it a very powerful plugin, and probably everything developers would ever need for all their forms.
What it does need is some more documentation. The conditional fields tutorial was very useful. I'd like to see similar info for the scripts and pieces and other advanced stuff, and a wordpress version of the pdf manual :-)
Once features will match Joomla's version and better documentation will appear then I think we will have the most powerfull forms plugin for WordPress. Even now I can do amazing thing wit it.
