I have to say, this is the absolutely perfect tool for the job. Easy to use, easy to understand and extremely comprehensive. I've racked my brain to figure out how it could be improved and am still yet to come up with anything.

Having built many sites in the bast, this was my first deep dive into the world of Joomla! (I won't mention the other CMS systems I've used... but won't use again) and am incredibly please with the outcome as is my client. I did, however make a newbie error embedding a component into a page instead of using a plug-in, but the guys Mad4Media had me on the right track in no time.

Perfect product, perfect support - wonderful experience. I can't recommend this/them enough. Keep up the great work guys.

The proforms extension did exactly what it said on the tin. Our developers were able to build a form quickly and to design.
We submitted an annoying question to the Proforms support, and had a swift, positive and helpful response.
Our company would recommend both the extension and Mad4Media's excellent support.

I'm a fairly new Joomla developer but a long time programmer. I tried other Joomla form packages, free and commercial, and was extremely disapointed to say the very least.....

Downloaded and installed the free Proforms basic package and within 5 minutes was putting together good looking forms... I'll definitely be purchasing the commercial version.....

I had a small but tricky form to build for a client in a short period of time and tried a few different forms components, I found proforms by far the most intuitive to use and from a design point of view brilliant to style.

I required something that was far more advanced than what any joomla based forms component provide so I contacted Mad4Media who got back to me extremely quickly and built me a custom app (well 2 to be exact) that did exactly what my client required. The communication was second to none.

Highly recommend.

Creating forms is quick and easy and the support is very fast and also goes into a personal problem.

The money is well invested

Keep it up.

Verry good service, also after my fold. I have deleted all of the components and Mad4Joomla helpt me to get a new one.

Verry verry good service
Owner's reply

Hello theodeurne,
Thank you for the review.

We like to correct one thing.
Our company is called Mad4Media and not Mad4Joomla.
Mad4Joomla is just the previous version of Proforms.
Proforms is a fork of Mad4Joomla.

I've tried no less than a half-dozen extensions to make a complex form (think along the lines of a job application - but more in depth). I've tried free ones and I've bought at least 3 (can't remember). I've been trying to get this finished for going on 3 months now (I do not work on it daily).

My frustration level with other form extensions got me to a point that I was working on just a fillable PDF because I'd had it.

I was skeptical about trying Proforms, I fully admit it - and I was not prepared to purchase anything other than the bare minimum (tired of wasting money you know).

BUT - I am SO loving it!! I've done a lot of back & forth to make the form "perfect" but it's so freaking easy once you understand the concept of building the form on templates.

I explained it to my husband like this - think of it like Legos.
But, with these Legos, you build each Lego block yourself (template), then you use the blocks you made & build a Legotastic creation (the form)

I had a question that I could not find the answer to in Proforms wonderful helpdesk feature - so I submitted a request (I was hesitant because I hate to ask for help, and I hate to appear stupid) - they got back to me pretty quickly with a straight forward solution to my dilemma.

All 'round would recommend this - I'm going to upgrade to the 365-day package!

I purchased their product and had a question the same day. First I hesitated and thought I can't ask them the first question right after I bought something from them. But it was urgent so I sent an email to support. And I got an answer immediately! Even more, they helped me with other issues and so I was able to move on with my project. Thanks a lot!

The Proform extension makes is easy to create different kinds of forms. I've been using is for a couple of times now.

In our latest project our customer asked for a "very simple order form" with a unique number. I've asked the Mad4Media team if this could be developed and integrated into the form.

I was surprised to hear that, overnight, they created an app to solve this.

What a great service !!

Thanks to the team.

Starting with the basic version I was surprised of the easy form creating. Because I need confirmation emails I decided to buy the pro version.
It is worth the money and has man extra features.
If you need a special feature you can use apps. And if you give the developer suggestions like me maybe you will get your own app within two days :)

I have been using free and paid versions of Proforms for a few years. The quality of support is quite impressive, although the application is immensely useful and flexible. While there are many great Joomla extensions as this, not every extension provides dependable support. Day, night, weekend or weekday, I always get a reply almost instantly from mad4media. To me, this matters a lot and I give them A+.

I have been doing web development for over a decade, and am very familiar with HTML, Javascript, PHP and MySQL. However, I am brand new (rms has been fantastic, far exceeding my expectations. It is a great extension, with a lot of flexibility and is very easy to use. I did experience one bug after my initial install, but after contacting customer service they were able to correct the problem within 24 hours, and were very friendly and pleasant to work with.

There are some features that I would like to see added to the extension (isn't there always!), but on the whole it is very flexible and does offer a lot of the basic options that one would want from a form-building tool. I look forward to seeing additional releases, updates, and other extensions from this group in the future.

The forms extension makes it easy to create many types of useful forms, validate data entry, store form data in the database and access/export it, send confirmational emails to the admin and to the user, etc. The forms display very nicely by default. The template facility makes it easy to create form segments that can be reused in multiple forms - really a time saver!

Support team was very helpful to me, answering my questions in a timely manner. My client had some unique forms requirements and support helped me create the forms my client requested.

Yesterday I started using proforms for a form on our company homepage. We are offering jobs and i needed a form system, that works failsafe. After a few minutes i had created the form easily. One or two smaller problems (one of them was a editor prob, no proform prob) were solved immediately. I can recommend this tool without limitations

I am using Proforms since it has been published. I used Mad4Joomla before.
With the new version 1.1 Proforms has made a big step into being one of the most professional and important Joomla extensions.

1. The new double opt in and mass mail functions are thrilling. I tested and used several newsletter components but not one of them gives you the freedom such as these new innovations. These two are converting Proforms to a full newsletter component.
Yes; Proforms is two in one now. The mail manager is so great that I’ve sent newsletters in half of the time.
2. First I was wondering what this app thing is about. But there is nothing to wonder. It is the same as for smart phones. Small add-ons providing exclusive functions. And the good news is that all of them are free for the one year service package. I believe this innovation will become the leading unique feature of Proforms in future.
3. More usability improvements making it more user friendly as it has already been.
If you are providing Joomla services, your customers will be amazed. I’d even not one customer who had problems in using this component.

But there is one thing I really don’t like!

If one also provides Typo3 service like me you will sorely miss Proforms.
Please convert it to Typo3 :)

Proforms is an excellent tool for my website. The features listed are up and running in no time.
During setup and upgrade this component I ran in to some little problems/questions which where solved almost immediately by the support team. Great support.

If you are looking for a form extension that is as simple or as complex as you want it to be this is it!

I have looked at nearly a dozen different similar extensions... some were ok... none were as good as Proforms. Very straight forward and very customizable. I love it.

Faster than light support!
In just 1 day from the purchase I set up 6 forms with different templates and layouts, captcha system and mandatory fields.
Right what I was looking for.
