I have used ChronoForms for about 2yrs now and never had to resort to their forums until recently. Not only is the component one of the best I have used, but the forum is responsive and gentle. I can not thanks these guys enough.
Nice product all round.
We wanted a form that captured an article heading automatically, used a simple verification code, and a form which could be re-created easily, this was perfect!
I have since gone back to the developer on various occasions asking for assistance and they have been more than happy to oblige, the only downside is that they like Chelsea :( ...but no one is perfect!
Hello, a new Form wizard editor has been added to the new V3.1 released few days ago!
There is a little bug though. If you want to edit a form after creating it, it does not show the WYSIWYG preview from the form anymore. it shows up for a second then disapears.
Thats with safari and firefox on mac.
Beside that its great! Highly recommended.
I'm a new user of joomla and I've download chronoforms. It's very easy to realize forms with it.
I had a problem of permission to remove the backlink after buying the license. I've sent an e-mail to chronoforms, they answered me after just a few hours (on a Sunday!) and they helped me solve my problem.
Thank you so much to Chronoforms team and especially Max.
This extension is a must have and worth its price.
PS : sorry for my English, I'm french !
Allows you to set confirmation page, drag and drop elements to create form, etc. Best one I have found so far and I am very picky about my components.
There's a lot out there in the way of form components, but this will do everything you need hands down.
If you have knowledge of PHP and MySQL - more power to you.
The main reason I tried this form was the File Attachment option. After installing and trying it out, it had so many other useful features in the interface you can use right out of the box.
I'm now re-doing all the existing forms on my companie's website with Chronoforms. Thanks to the Chrono team for developing this. It's awesome!
ITS A MUST HAVE TOOL FOR JOOMLA DEVELOPERS
It is worth way more than 25 bucks :)
What I don't like is the copyright that comes with it. Unless you get the $25 ad-free license, you're stuck with an unsightly, unrelated advertisement at the bottom of your published form. I mean if the back-link said something like "powered by: Chronoforms", fine, fair game. Instead, it says "Joomla Professional Work", all 3 words linking back to chronoforms.com. Firstly, everyone's going to know what platform you're using off the bat (ie Joomla), second, it really is unsightly and conjures images of unrelated adSense advertising.
It takes a little time in the beginning to understand but once you've grabbed the idea it becomes easier and then the support forum, they will pull you out of any or all the difficulties that you're having.
Really great component and a great team.
Thanks ChronoForms Team.
1. When we click on the edit button, show a button on the menu bar, that will display the current fields on the form and also the tool bar (like the wizard) so one can edit the form easily. I still cannot find a way to add or delete fields on a existing for.
2. Make the user interface especially in the edit mode or new forms mode more user friendly. As one of the users mentioned, it is a nightmare backend with code and data all over. Layout is not that great.
I have removed this extension and have paid for RS Forms. I would have gladly paid for an extension if it was worth it. RS Forms is great and I would recommend the owner of this extension to borrow a few ideas from it.
