Don't believe the hype or the affiliate reviews. Formidable Pro stands head and shoulders above that "other" forms plugin.
Formidable immediately shines for its configurable, GUI-driven per-field output markup configuration. Want to integrate your form into a responsive grid framework like Bootstrap or Foundation? Simply visit your Form configuration and add the output markup to the field wrappers. No need for filters, additional plugins, or custom code to override field markup.
Next, get to know Views to display form entry data on your site -- built in to Formidable Pro; no additional plugin required. Formidable is more than a form system -- it's a data input/output system.
Later, dive into hooks and filters. Want to do something with submitted data (like POST to external URL, integrate with an API, run your own logging functions, or perform a database lookup and alter a value) either before or after the user entry is stored to the database? That's covered and is easy to implement.
Meanwhile, enjoy support from the lead developer and her close-knit team of support moderators. (An optional Priority Support tier is renewable after year 1 of purchasing a license. Updates are free forever.) On many occasions over 5 years, I've seen them patch in hooks or filters based on single support requests. To paraphrase: "it doesn't do that right now, but let's make it happen. Here's the code to patch in. We'll include this in the next release." In case you don't know, this type of response usually means a solid, well maintained, tightly controlled code base. Exactly what you want from a complex WP plugin. Their Kung Fu is Good and the paid support is great.
Formidable Pro is simple yet flexible enough for web designers and front end WP page builders to create forms without code, and also extensible enough to satisfy the complex needs of light application developers.
This should be the ONE WP forms plugin you'll ever need.
After trying all the form plugins of the market.. this is the best!
And the customer support is really nice and super fast.
I've been using Formidable Pro for years now and have always been impressed with the ease of use, versatility and flexibility of the plugin. Support is outstanding. The pricing plan (one-time payment with lifetime updates) is the most cost effective of all the form plugins I've used. Support must be renewed yearly, but is very reasonably priced and worth every penny.
Formidable Pro is constantly being updated with new features that make it capable of amazing things. It's way more than a simple form builder!
I have used Formidable and Formidable Pro on many, many client sites for several different project including everything from a basic "contact us" form, to donation pages, to data collection, to providing ability to add entries to custom posts, to event management and more.
It really is amazing what can be done by building a form.
When I do run into a problem, the support received from Formidable Pro easily rates a 5 star as well.
Some of the other "form plugins" I have used on behalf of my clients ... in my opinion... don't come close to what can be done with Formidable Pro.
I've been happily using Formidable Forms for quite a while for a variety of applications on several websites. I've used it to create member directories, community recipes, class registration forms, and many other types of forms. The pro version is also reasonably priced, and offers various additional capabilities such as Paypal integration. I highly recommend Formidable Forms.
Formidable has some nice features that might seem minor at first but actually make all the difference. Such as BCC & Reply To. It's also beautifully responsive. Fits in sidebar, smartphone, tablet seamlessly.
And, it looks great on the page as well as the recipient end.
When I started to use wordpress I looked for a plugin to gather information from users by forms and to display it on different pages. I first found Gravity forms, because a lot of the so called "WordPress professionals" pointed to this plugin. I even bought it, and spend a lot of time to learn how to use it. Unfortunately I had no succes and was very disappointed in the way the people behind Gravityforms answered my questions: I feld treated like a stupid person, didn't get any help at all, although I had a paid version.
Then I found Formidablepro! What a difference!! In a view ours I had a working system, and when I asked for some options I couldn't find, they created the code for me and told me where to put it.
I started to use Formidable in 2011 and still using it in all my projects: it is amazing how the team behind this plugin is developing it every year to a new level and the support is by far the best I have ever experienced!
I pay for a lot of wp plugins, but Formidablepro is the only plugin I pay for every year ( for the support) with a real pleasure!
I have been building websites for 21 years, and I've been building WordPress websites for 3 1/2 years. In all that time I have used a LOT of different tools to build web forms, and Formidable is by far the BEST. The easy-to-use, drag-and-drop interface, sophisticated styling options and advanced built-in functionality make it a must-have for every project. I can't say enough good things about this plugin. I like it so much that it's built into my customized base WordPress installation from which I make every website. Their support is fantastic, and they're always adding new features. Keep up the great work, guys!
I've used it on a few sites that I've built. It can do so much more than a lot of other form plugins. I recommend upgrading to pro (which is worth every penny) to gain access to all the features, of which there are many. Support is great! Thank you, Formidable Forms for creating such a fantastic plugin!
We have grown along with Formidable Pro and they keep anticipating our next requirements. We have only needed support a few times and every time they've come through with the answers we needed and usually in very short order!
