I would say that this component suite (along with chrono connectivity, along with CB from joomlapolis, ranks as the best components available for Joomla today. CB still has some limitations (like ameturish looks, etc), but Chrono-engine has no limitations whatsoever. Here is why:
1. No functionality limitations for free users! Just a deveopers link on you forms which you would happily keep considering the great work they have done
2. Superb support! Whether u are a free user, or a premium one, there is no discrimination on the value of the support you receive. With admins like Greyhead and max, just post a question and you get a solution in a hours time... just report a bug and they mail you a patch
3. For coders and Non-Coders alike: even though chronoforms is primarily for non-coders, its is so smartly designed, that there is virtually room to put in you custom code snippets anwhere. even though its wizard allows you a GUI to drag and drop forms and can be used even by ppl who have never seen an html tag in their life. However, for more experienced webmasters, it has many places wherein u an put you little phps to attain whatever you want
4. Achieve almost any functionality you want! almost all things you can dream to do with your forms is possible
5. A host of Plugins and enhanced functionalities like dynamic emails that make your form look truly professional.
6. and here is my reason to give it a sixth star! I will say it again Support! support! Support! is phenomenal!
Thank you chronoforms.
It's perfect! It Includes everything I could imagine. I have a very complicated site, wich needs to include uploads of manufacturers and transmit it to virtuemart and this makes it so easy! Data base access, Php and Java codes.. all included.
The Installation is easy, it took me one minute, it works perfect and I like it alot!
I really love this component!
I have used other form extensions, but when developing another site, I couln't install my usual extension, and so I searched and found chrono forms, and man! after some trial and error, I find this is one of the most clever extensions ever!
its the developer + designer dream, it takes you html and generates the form, great one!
Congratulations to the developer and keep up the good work.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
What impressed me more than anything else is the support through the forum. After 3 years with Joomla and multiple sites with various components and modules I have NEVER experienced such rapid and helpful support.
Great Product, find a reason to use, you will love it
The Chrono forum is active and the dev is very helpful.
I create my regular form in HTML. Paste it in to the "Form Code" section and then link it via the Joomla menu. It supports quite a few plugins (Community Builder registration, Joomla! Registiona, etc). It has a built-in CAPTCHA for spam protection but it does have a plugin for ReCAPTCHA, which is what I use.
The ability to support custom thank you pages can give you the opportunity to show your visitor what they submitted.
There is a link on each page that uses ChronoForms. It just links to the chronoengine website. As with most of these links it doesn't open in a new page. Nothing major. I've edited the coding on mine to simply center the text/link and have the link open in a new window.
Not sure why, but just a pet peve of mine, that is, having those types of links centered and opening in a new window.
