ChronoForms Popular ComponentModulePlugin

Editor's Note
  • Free version displays a link to the developers site. Upon installation, users will be prompted for an optional validation code to remove the link.
I always needed to create custom forms for my clients websites, Or to migrate their old websites forms fast and easy to new Joomla websites forms, this was pain, as I was using other components for doing this, and create everything from scratch at web based tools. So I created this tool to let me copy and paste code from old sites or after making it in 5 minutes with any HTML editor (e.g: Macromedia DreamWeaver)

Chronoforms is about 6 years old, today it comes with a huge list of features with a very easy to use drag and drop interface to help you build any type of forms you may need, some of the features included are:

1- Basic forms features like fields creation..etc
2- Emails processing.
3- Data validation on form (client-side - JavaScript) and on server.
4- Data storage and management. (Let's you create a table for your form, save data to this table then manage it later) (ChronoConnectivity provides even more management capabilities)
5- Security with built in Captcha + ReCaptcha support.
6- Different Joomla functions. (Joomla registration forms, User Login or Article submission..etc)
7- Access Control to your forms.
8- Payment Integration ( - Paypal Pro -
9- More utilities for common stuff needed like CURL - Email verification - Confirmation pages..etc
10- endless control using an events based system which lets you control everything inside your form if you want to, plus the ability to use PHP code wherever and whenever you need.

1- Big set of free PDF tutorials covering most of the basic features.

I have been using the latest ChronoForms and I have to say it is absolutely brilliant. Very easy to use and if by chance you do get hung up on something all you have to do is post a question in their support forum and Max or Bob will quickly reply.

A++ for ChronoForms support and product.

No matter how great is the product, if there is no support from the developer, the product won't be successful. Chronoform has a passionate team working on solving customer's problem. Great product and good team, thanks for your hard work!

Very configurable component, you can do almost anything. Simple forms can be done in few minutes, complex ones require more time but with the possibility to use custom js and php code you can do almost any kind of form.
Support is also great both on the public forums and sending a direct support request.

Very configurable component, tried others, free and commercial and settled on this because of its flexibility.

I made a support query for domain validation (I didn't read the form correctly) took 18 minutes from my request to solution. Stunning !!! Thank you very much

I have been using Chronoforms for years. Each iteration of the program keeps getting better. I have used the program for everything from basic contact forms to complex forms that export the results as encrypted PDFs. The developers response to questions is typically speedy although I can usually find an answer to my question in their forums or online videos. As this extension can do so much there is a bit of a learning curve. Once mastered you will find you need no other form builder.

This is the first time I've used ChronoForms and I absolutely love it! Setup and customization are too easy. If you're looking for a great form extension, look no further!

Chronoforms to the rescue. Thank you. An easy to use and very flexible extension. I was frustrated like so many others (in the forums) that the contact forms built into Joomla sent messages back from the e-mail settings of the site, rather than from the e-mail address entered into a form. With Chronoforms, I've overcome this problem. Leaving the static from blank and using the dynamic from field, means that any form received if from the person entering their e-mail into a form, not from the site. Excellent, especially as this means I can just click reply to the form message and it goes to the respondee.
Chronoforms is easy to install, manage and once you get into the way the processing works, it's easy. Two Wizards make that process even easier. A great bit of software, thanks.

IF for no other reason, Chronoforms believes in supporting ChronoForms and other Chrono products. Max has always answered any reach out when needed. If you are having trouble understanding a product that required forms and data ChronoForms and its developer will help. I have never failed to get answers and support for the product.

Chronoforms is one of the standard components which make up my Joomla Installations, contact us forms modified to represent the business / club / individuals specific requirements are easy to produce and secure with the options to include recaptcha's etc ensuring a standard look across the whole site. Great product and Forum support is very good and prompt as well. Thanks

I have been using Chronoforms for a number of projects now and I am still as excited about it then when I first tried it out over two years ago!

Whether you're just looking for a simple contact form or wanting to build a small shopping cart - Chronoforms can do it all! There's a huge amount of possiblities, even if you're not a PHP expert.

But that's only half the package. Chronoforms support forums is packed with tons of information and Max (the developer) and his chief supporter Greyhead solve tons of problems every day! Got a question, shoot it off and they normally get back to you very quickly!

All in all, you get a great deal - wether for free or by buying a subscription - that's certain more than worth the money!!

A really good extension.
So powerfull, the relation to the database is quite easy to use, like drop-down list with database information.
I've used it to make form to create/delete lines in a database, for person whose are not computer competent.
And if you know PHP and SQL, it will be even more powerfull, allowing you to make search form to look in your database ...

This is one of the very few and very rare five star components available.

IF your site has any forms as core parts of your web site then look no further than this component from ChronoEngine.

At present you could have some minor problems with the proverbial clash between MooTools and jQuery. However, the latest Joomla 3 is supposed to support both MooTools and jQuery in the no conflict mode and more importantly Max the Chronoforms Developer is working on and about to release an updated version which will address this problem.

How do I know all this, well very simply through the most excellent forum support system that they have in place and it’s free, free, free.

Although this is a free component in the spirit of open source software, other developers please take note, it is only fair to contribute to their software development which will inevitably benefit us all by either buying them a beer or purchasing the optional validation code.

Although some site developers may feel that you need a basic knowledge of coding, let me assure everyone that if I as a 67 year old apprentice site developer can, with ChronoEngine support, produce great results then anyone can.
