Build contact form, survey, and simple purchase form!
By , for WP 3.6.1

This is a great plugin to easily build contact form, surveys, simple purchase form, and more! Sure, there are areas for improvement, but what code doesn't? Anyway, I started out using the free one, but decided to upgrade to the pro version for only a nominal fee, which offered several key features that wasn't clearly presented on the website. Here are some PRO features that I use a lot, but wasn't too clear they are available:

  • Hidden field that can tell store which post the form came from - this is super useful to create a generic form that can be used on multiple posts. For example, you can create generic signup forms for events, the hidden field would use the subject of the post to tell you, which event the user has signed up to do.
  • "Merge Tag" that allows you to copy entered value of a field into other places. Very useful to customize the notification e-mail so you can directly use the user's entered name and any other information.
  • "Username" field that allows you to pull user's login name - useful if you run a site that allows membership.

Highly recommend trying it out, and then upgrade to PRO!

By far the best form plugin I've ever used, and better than many premium ones. I've tried a few over the years, but since discovering Matthew's VFB plugin, I've not looked at any others. The pro version is outstanding and the support is superb too.

Excellent Plugin
By , for WP 3.5.2

This is an excellent Form Builder. I purchased it on Dec 2nd 2013 and I have used it to build a form with about 45 fields and 3 pages. Matthew, I strongly appreciate your excellent work and I wish you continuous and overwhelming success.

Works Perfect, Does it's job well!

Fabulous Plug in!!

I absolutely love this plug-in.
I am new to WordPress. This plug-in has amazing functionality. It is extremely easy to use. It does almost everything already, but if you do want to do something weird and wild and need to look at the source code, it is beautifully written, clear and well commented.

If you have questions, the plug-in author is very quick to respond and very helpful.

I started out with the free version, but updated to the Pro Version, which is even better. I think they are undercharging for the Pro Version, lol, it is worth a lot more!

Great plugin! Easy to use, extensible and keeps getting better!

I've been with this plugin from the beginning and it just keeps getting better with every update. Lots of extensibility. I highly recommend the pro version. There's lots of add-ons, if you need them, and you can't beat the price. Keep up the great work, Matthew!

Great Job! Highly Recommended

Absolutely amazing. Visual Form Builder saved me so much time with the clients on a tighter budget.

Keep it up!

Finally, contact forms with an intuitive interface
By , for WP 3.7.1

Visual Form Builder blows the other free contact form plugins out of the water. I've used others for a while now, to keep costs down for my clients, but the interfaces are daunting to newcomers and not something a client can use safely and efficiently. VFB is just what I need to feel comfortable handing a clear, intuitive product to my clients.

I went ahead and upgraded to the Pro for this client. I can't compare VFB Pro's feature-set to the other big premium form plugin, Gravity, because I haven't used it. But I chose VFB Pro over Gravity because Gravity requires a yearly fee to renew the license. VFB Pro's license provides lifetime updates. It may not seem like much, but when you add up all the premium plugin licensing fees on a site, it can easily come to $100-$200 a year. That's a lot for the small businesses and organizations I serve. Knowing they won't be paying every year just for simple, intuitive form management makes me very happy.

Amazing Customer Service & Product
By , for WP 3.6.1

Form works great, but the best part is the service! Bre helped out a ton, was always available to contact along the way. I highly recommend the Visual Form Builder to others.

Truly fantastic
