Other than the technical requirements, this form would get Excellent. It is, however, just as advertised and a fantastic tool in a Joomla webmaster's belt.
Because we made ChronoForms VERY flexible, it does simply EVERYTHING, No other forms extension can do what ChronoForms can do, and so there should be too few technical issues, however you never get lost with the every minute support at our forums and the regular updates.
I expect none.
BUT ~~ ChoronoForm's people are so nice, they will answer your questions, scraching heads together, digging into the YOUR code, post a msg and they will reply as soon as they can.
BOB and MAX, well done mate!
This seems like a very straightforward and easy to use extension, but there's a few bugs that make me stay away from it.
I have forms that require multiple items to be selected, but this extension doesn't work well with that. There are apparently some hacks to fix this, but I need to develop some forms fast. The copy/paste form code feature looked very appealing, but ultimately since it doesn't play nice with select boxes, or check boxes for that matter, I'm not even going to consider using it anymore. Sorry.
Hi, we are working hard to make ChronoForms fit everyneed, we try to add features asked by users, we have a very active forums where you always get support in minutes and regular updates for the component.
A hack for the current version is actually our fast help for a current problem some user have and can't wait for a new release, it should be available without any hacks at the next version very soon, never hesitate to post at our active forums to get answers or help!!
#1 - make (and save) your form in Dreamweaver or some other program
#2 - create and new form under the 'Form Management'
#3 - copy and paste everything within (but not including) the tags in to the 'HTML' section under form manager
#4 - to add a menu link follow these instructions:
#5 - make sure everything's as you wish under the ChronoForms component configuration
and than voila! Thanx a lot for cutting me al lot of work and figuring out how to use it into Joomla.
