Good but slow and buggy dropdown creation
By , for WP 4.4.1

Great to create forms. Fairly clean and good UX. However the creation of dropdown lists is buggy and slow. It's virtually impossible to get it right. New options appear called "Alternativ 9", "Alternativ 10" which can be renamed but then appear in an unpredictable location, or sometimes, the name change is not saved.

Also, when the dropdown is clicked when in editing mode, it shows up incorrectly.


Also, field size can be set in number of characters, but that doesn't limit the graphic size of the field (which arguably would be good)

Solid Form Builder
By , for WP 4.3.1

This is one of the most interesting Form builders out there. You can build a huge variety of forms, collect a variety of data for a a large number of purposes (sign up forms, survey forms, etc.). The big drawback for me is if you are not a developer, you are going to have a VERY difficult time creating VIEWS of the data. You have to be able to write full HTML to format the data in the VIEW. There are some powerful things you can do with the VIEW function, but it requires a higher technical skill.

Awesome plugin other than what I mentioned above. I bought the PRO version.

Can't read labels in builder (plugin incompatibility
By , for WP 4.3

Original review: It is way too hard to build a form when the text labels are black on a black background. This does not occur on the form as displayed, but I need to create a long and complicated form and having black boxes on the builder page is just too frustrating.

I changed my back end theme to each color combination and it had no effect.

Good idea, but unworkable in practice. Glad I didn't spend money on it.

Addendum: Turns out to be an incompatibility with an installed plugin. I may check out the paid version later.
