This component is a standard installation for our clients, who wish a contact form on their website. Nice usability, fair condition and very good support. The quality made in Germany!

If I could rate 10/5 I would. The component is easy to learn and use and the functions are excellent. I have been using 1.3 for some time and 1.5 is an improvement on something I thought could never be improved.

To receive a support mail for a free extension is unheard of!

Situation was my job to incorporate the possibility of a declaration or order to be able to print the information provided before shipping. Since I've been working all the time with Proforms Basic was necessary an extension. The extension is good, easy to use and flexible to fit in the "Basic" edition. Means it meets my needs.
After I after some time. Bought my package through technical Defect had lost, I got free replacement.

This is the 3rd Forms Module that I have tried and I love it. Very easy to use. Thank you for sharing it with the Joomla community for free.

This component looked very promising at first, the interface was good and easy to use but once I began creating my form it became obvious that it wouldn't suffice my needs. The most basic feature like email address verification is limited to the pro version. I must say I was disappointed. Overall I would not recommend it.

This extension is a complete life-saver - produces perfect forms and is packed with excellent functionalities and features, even in the free version! Especially with the latest version which allows so much customisation. Will gladly buy the Pro version when ready. Huge thanks to the developers on this, amazing work!

My first steps with Joomla 3.. and of course I needed forms. Proforms turns out to be the most versatile, even the free version.

I was missing the ability to have the e-mail address filled in on a form to be the reply address in the form that was e-mailed so I contacted support about this. They kindly provided a solution without charging.. This was a nice surprise because I don't have a paid license!

So highly recommended. Not only because of the help but the product itself also works.

I have a few different websites and I am using Proforms Basic on them all! I think it's a great extension, allowing me full flexibility for fields and the text I wish to display to the end-user (before & after sending). I am using it for basic contact forms, subscribing forms, and other types of communication.
I had an issue when upgrading (my own fault) and the support team were fantastic - after a couple of emails where I tried to do what they suggested they just did it for me!!
I currently only need the basic version, but as soon as a client asks for something more I will be purchasing the PRO version.
Great job by the guys at Mad4Media :-)

As the marketing department for a United States Airforce Force Support Squadron Website we bought this extension.
We can confirm that this extension has it all! We use Proforms for more than 50 facilities and all the managers are exited about their email that they receive! Also in the first month the website had over 30000 unique visitors using the forms. Not a single complain about the forms came back to us.
It is easy to build and integrate. It is really customer friendly and there are so many more things that you can do with it!
From Hotel Reservation to Family Programs. It is extremely usefull.
Also after some support questions there was immediate respons with some really good solutions!


Keep up the good work!

In my search for Joomla 3.0 components I've found this. Proforms Basic is the first free form for Joomla 3.0. It's running out of the box without having flaws.
I would like to join in all the thanks for the developer's good work.

I like don't repeat yourьelf and Proforms is following that design pattern.
Too bad that the basic version allows only 1 template at a form.
More pleasing is support for basic.
They helped me today in 30 minutes.
Thrilling for a free version.
Give them a gold medal.

Downloaded the basic version with the intention of evaluating it on my Joomla 2.5.6 website. However, most of the features are only available to Pro version users soI wasn't really able to test it properly. The admin screen layouts looked messy and not well designed. This may have been the Basic (free) version and maybe the Pro version has a better back-end design. I don't know.
I also wasn't able to get the email notification to work.
I undertand the reason for wanting users to upgrade to the paid version and would gladly have done so, but since I couldn't test any of the advanced features first, and the poor design of the screens made me wonder whether the Pro version would be any better, I decided to use a different extension instead.

I'd wish more features for the free version.
Nevertheless can understand that it's part of their marketing.
More surprising to get personal support from them. Had a CSS flaw and they solved it in half an hour.
Thanks to the mad4media team.

I tried this component to create a form, and that part worked great. However many people are getting a white screen when they submit, even though I have error checking on. I contacted the creators for support, and they did email me back and forth quickly at first. However they began ignoring my emails and the problem was never resolved. Now I have to look for another component :(
Owner's reply

We just can shake our heads by this review.

This is a free (as in beer) component and we gave tech support anyway.
We gave it not only one time, we checked the site and responded several times to the reviewers emails.

Every time we checked the site everything used to be working like a charm.
So how can we help if the form is working on different browsers.

Probably the person PROVOKED this review of whatever reason.

A fact is that we have gave support for free and couldn't find any errors. If this issue is real the only reason could be a misconfigured server.

But everybody understands that we can not give dedicated support over a long time for free.
If you purchase an advance service subscription you can get more intensive support.

Such reviews let us think about canceling any support for Proforms Basic.
The victims are the community thank such parasitary people.

Like any extension out there, you need to get a look around and fiddle with the commands. I happened to just master the use in a few tries. It works just like the author described. I'm using the basic and it does what I want it to do. I am planning on getting the full service for future needs.
I've tried a few of those and none come up to Proforms ankle.
Keep up the good work.

I use Proforms Basic for some websites, and with many templates, categories and forms, and am still very excited about it.

And here's my however: I keep getting dots "..." instead of the Question or Alias for some websites. This appears in Templates > items. When you have a nice list of items it gets really hard to find which item to select to adjust, so you have to try out some items to get to the right one..

I tried finding a solution within Proforms help part, the website, and google, couldn't find anything on it.

But, as I said, apart from this problem it works great.

I really think about upgrading to pro.
after download and installing it took 10 minutes for my first form.
Had a little mailing bug and contacted mad4media. Another 15 minutes and I got a perfect solution for my issue.
