It's so good I decided to give a a 5 star rating.
I hate contact form plugins, they always lack something. This one is so flexible, I could do everything I want and then some.
This plugin is amazing and their support is better! I've had the pro version for a few weeks now and I feel safe in saying that this is the best plugin I have ever purchased.
The free version is full of features but the paid version has really exceeded my expectations. I am building a company intranet and formidable pro has been an invaluable resource. It's quickly becoming the entire backbone of the site.
Support has been amazing. They are quick to respond and have helped me work out some very complex issues. If I could give them 6 stars I would!
Once you get an understanding of how powerful formidable pro is you are really limited only by your imagination.
Excellent product, and top-notch customer service. Impressive!
Best form plugin on WordPress. Can support multiple pages, file uploads, saving of submissions, and very developer friendly. Support is very responsive and helpful. no one comes close to their support.
We bought the Pro version and use Formidable (and the PayPal add-on) on several sites now. We replaced Visual Form Builder.
This is a very powerful plugin. The capabilities provided for formatting forms, creating conditional logic, doing calculations from other form elements, and using the many filter hooks are in combination outstanding. A very powerful and flexible plugin that we are very happy with.
There are a couple of features missing compared to VFB that require extra work to do with filter hooks, that should be built into the plugin itself. Maybe in a future release. But they are not major enough to change our mind about this being a 5-star plugin.
And last but not least: We have received outstanding support! Twice we ran into questions or problems and twice we received very good and very prompt support. One problem was mine, one was theirs, but in both cases, the support was just great.
We are quite pleased and will definitely continue using Formidable Forms and are happy to recommend it.
We needed to put a 100 question survey together and there aren't that many plugins out there that can do - as far as what I found.
Because we wanted it paged we bought the pro version.
It does get a bit slow in the backend at that volume of questions and we needed to adapt the way we created it a bit to make it efficient...and it took as a bit to figure out the styling, but the licensing alone makes it a winner over Gravity Forms.
Pay once, get lifetime upgrades and a year worth of support.
While I prefer full lifetime licenses, this allows me to have the plugin on my sites and sleep well knowing that security issues will be patched and WordPress updates shouldn't break my sites without having to pay again for updates.
Support can take a lot of time (for popular and versatile plugins probably more than actually writing it) and by having to pay again after a year I think the chances of the plugin keep being developed are higher.
I like free plugins as much as the next person - and this one has many useful features in the free version already - but I can see that there is a limit on how much support can be expected depending on how much one pays.
I just hope that real bug reports are excluded from the one year, and if not that there are other currently paying customers finding the same :)
This form builder is SO much easier to use than other free options, and covers all the basics.
I did end up purchasing a Pro license as well and have been blown away by all of the power.
I haven't even needed to contact support for anything, but I've heard from many others (as well as reviews here) that it is outstanding.
Just wanted to add a very quick note to say how impressed I am with quality of the plugin, the support received and unlimited possibilities Formidable gives you! :-)
I've been using Formidable Pro on various sites for more than a few years now and I'm still learning about new, and powerful ways to use this plugin. Support for Pro is fast, friendly, and professional. I've tried other forms apps when I got stuck with Formidable, but it doesn't usually take but a day and I come back and find a way to do what I needed. Definitely worth the money for anyone that needs just a little more than hobbyist-level plugin and support.
I have used Formidable for many many years now. It’s new version, 2.0 is ground breaking as far as customised form builders go. I use it very heavily for building data applications. The custom views are incredibly powerful, once you have got your head around the possibilities. Yes you can use this as a simple site form, but this plugin is so much more then that. I would say the most powerful features are the dynamic fields, repeatable sections and the ability to embed forms into each other. So building very complex forms that reference and pull data from others forms is fairly simple and very handy indeed. I would recommend purchasing the upgrade, having a really good read of the documentation and then go and play. Honestly, there is very little I have not been able to do with it.
If you need help, be sensible have a look to see if anyone else has had the same problem on their website, then don't be afraid to ask for help. They have a great team of very dedicated lovers of the product.
Highly highly recommended.
