Let me first say I rarely write reviews. Let me say secondly say I rarely pay for plugins. Lastly, I would add that I am not a robot, a developer plant, nor did I receive any consideration in exchange for a positive review. I paid full price, cash money, for the Pro version of Formidable Forms.
This is, hands down, by far, the best plugin I have ever used in my years of working with WordPress. I have not found a bug (I'm sure they're in there, just hasn't affected me yet). I had a bit of a learning curve vis-a-vis other form builders I have used. But the Formidable Forms knowledge base and documentation are excellent. EXCELLENT.
Here I am about 90 minutes after downloading the plugin and the PayPal add-on, and I have a great looking form which seems to be working flawlessly. Every feature I looked for, it was in there. You know, those moments when you are like "Gosh, I wonder if it can do XX". 30 seconds on the FF support site and wham, I had my answer. 2 minutes after that I am up and running.
I paid the $197 for the small business plan, as I manage about 8 sites; this gives me license for up to 15 sites which should be good for the forseeable future. The free plan I didn't even mess with since I needed some more advanced layout and customization options, along with accepting PayPal payments.
The individual plan will work well for lots of folks, and that's like $75. By plugin standards, kind of pricey. But seriously, it's $25 per site for me, $13 if I maxed out the 15 licenses. If I get literally one (1) additional registration because of the online functionality, the plugin is paid for. Plus, this works and it works well and they support the product.
Again, a year from now, I will probably have a list of gripes. But I am willing to bet it will be a short list from what I have seen thus far. Most plugins last less than 20 minutes on my sites. This one had me the perfect solution to my needs and completely set up in just a bit more than that time.
Does all it says and more - I use it in ways it was not intended to, and it is rock solid. Worth every Penny. There is a learning curve; and documentation, while extensive, could be clearer. Once you master it it becomes a Swiss army knife. Ongoing new features development adds to its usability, and support is prompt.
Does everything I needed, and is reasonably priced. Bought the enterprise version immediately and absolutely love the conditional logic options!
I did notice it doesn't allow a recaptcha to appear within a section, which was slightly disappointing. Also within sections, the CSS Layout classes don't work properly. If I have 5 items, all with frm_fifth, it will put 4 on one line, and the 5th on a second line, which isn't ideal. Fix these issues, and it's an easy 5 stars.
Edit: Now it just needs to be officially tested against 4.5. Works on my site.
Works well, knowledge base is extensive and it's growing everyday
I use it for years and I could not do without it. Not only are they forms but with the views, it is possible to make real applications
Probably the most flexible and robust form builder and content - data management tool available for WordPress. It is far beyond just form builder. The most powerful tool for front-end and user managed content for WordPress sites.
I tried anything available, Formidable is not only easy to use, but also robust enough to achieve any type of user submitted content tool.
Create different kind of directory or post/custom post creation from front-end with this plugin are top-notch.
If anybody need to build a directory website, currently there is no more flexible tool for WordPress than Formidable Forms. (I tried tens of plugins for this purpose)
All features and possibilities are doubled with superb and friendly support from developers. Overall my best experience in whole WP ecosystem with the quality of support. Their support helps much far behind regular support request. They are helping people to achieve their goals.
For me this is not just a plugin, it's the complex solution for my on-line goals supported by helpful and friendly people.
One of two or three plugins that I can't do without. It works, it changes your thinking about what you can do in WP, and the service is no-nonsense brilliant!
I've been looking for a nice form plugin for quite some time. This one works just like it said it would. It is powerful and a little complicated, so I haven't used those parts. The 'get it going and make it work now' part works just fine for me.
And the developer replied within a day with instructions for my Reset Button request. It worked on the first try also.
Try this one if you've been looking for a forms plugin to work.
I just purchased a starter version of formidable pro but after payment they just email me the user name and login something like that and when I check my license and download there's nothing. Please Help me!!!
Formidable is actually formidable! Sometimes not that easy to use, even tricky, but very very powerful.
