Stable and Feature Rich
By , for WP 4.2.3

Great plugin, great options with a bit of a learning curve. The reason for 4 stars is often you get 3 of 4 features needed in an add-on, but missing the fourth and critical one forcing you to buy another add on. Outside of this, the form tool set is a solid choice.

Does the job
By , for WP 4.2.2

Seems to do a good job of the basics with loads of flexibility. Just looks like long term it may be very expensive buying all the needed extensions over the once off fee others charge

Love it
By , for WP 4.1

I love this plugin it's very robust. I just wish there was captcha. One stationary challenge question does not seem like enough.

ajax conflict
By , for WP 4.1

Sometimes when I submit ajax form I get an error

One of the best Form builders out there
By , for WP 4.1

This is definetely one of the best form builders out there. It's intuitive in it's usage which makes it very easy to learn and use.

Also the extentions are enormous...tip: use the conditional formatting extension. It makes forms clearer to use for a visitor!

Only disadvantage is the Dutch translations. That could be a bit better since it seems Google Translate has come in between here and there ;-)

(Happy to take a look at that @ NinjaForms)

Rock Ninja forms

Thank you for your great plug - makes me feel empowered to build our own ways

Good support
By , for WP 4.0.1

Support team was quick and effective. Their video tutorials already covered my problem so we didn't have to debug it further. Thanks

Impressive! A couple suggestions...
By , for WP 4.2.2

Very impressive! Some ideas for interface tweaks...

I've used a lot of WP form software. It took some head scratching before I realized that "Notifications" has to be used or nothing will happen, it doesn't even "default to WP admin email address" like most form plugins do. I would suggest nomenclature that's a little more descriptive, such as "Notifications and Email Structure", or something that indicates the need to make the actual email.

Another idea would actually be to default to just cranking out all fields in the email if Notifications isn't filled in. That's essentially what I did anyway.

A small but annoying thing: when you delete a field in a form you get a pop-up saying something like "if you don't save, this will delete automagically", which isn't true if you previously saved the form, and are going back to take a field out. Probably just one more IF statement. :)

Teeniest idea - I was looking for "radio", "checkboxes", and all that - it turned out they're all there (yay!), but called "Lists", which is fairly vague, I think.

-- update on the original review --

Whoa, I guess now the emails are now called "Emails and Actions". I'll give you credit for trying to clarify the interface. :)

All in all, the interface and terminology are very, let's say, non-traditional. I'm a coder, but I really got confused with trying to set up an autoresponder (which I gather is an "Email User"?). After several failed tests, I finally gave up and set that up on Contact Form 7 in about 5 minutes.

I'll still probably use your stuff for a long-ish form with no autoresponder - I'm still confident that I can do that. :)

There are also dead links in your documentation, specifically where you try to suggest docs to people out before they directly contact you for support. Might wanna check that. :)

Thanks

Powerful Contact Form
By ,

This takes contact forms to the next level.

Main aspects I like are

  • easily change label text from next to to inside the field
  • easily place form in a modal box
  • no more Captchas! Simple q & A

Just be aware, if your MX records are on a different host to your website, you may have to do some additional work with your host to get it working.

Improved submissions view
By , for WP 3.9.1

I am editing my review and rating because 2.7 adds great options for viewing submissions. I have tried the plugin itself again, nor reviewed the developer documentation for improvements.
