Product was easy to use as stated, creating forms was simple, but on Joomla 2.5.6 there was no way to access the form data. Every important data access required the Pro version. Not a good experience for what seemed a promising product!
Owner's reply

The database storage function is just for the advance version.
The basic version clearly states out that there is not database storage built in.
Please view the comparison chart:
If you like to obtain advance functions you need to purchase a subscription of the advance version.

IT IS NOT TRUE that important information’s are only for the “pro version”!
We offer a full documented PDF handbook for free:

If we have time left we also answer support requests for the free version.

I am a joomla-dummy and was very worried about making forms. But It took me only about half an hour to make my first test-form. I would like to compliment you all with this great product! Thank you. Will probably upgrade to Pro, since I like the other lay-outs with are not available in basic. Will absolutely recommend you our joomla-guys, who usually fix all of our websites. I was stubborn, wanted to prove I could do it myself and I did. So happy!

After playing around a while with Proforms Basic I fell in love with this component.

A great enrichment for Joomla.

I struggled with the CSS.
I've sent an email and got a clear, nice and professional answer the next day.
Additionally they sent me parts of the handbook they are writing. This was real gold because it helps understanding some things much faster.
At all the Mad4Media team provides an excellent component and support.

Installed this component, it didn't email the forms as it should and also tried to redirect to a non-existent URL.

There doesn't seem to be any way to contact the developers without buying the product, so reluctantly I am uninstalling.

This looked like a good product, but if the free version doesn't work and the developers are not available for support, it's not much use.

“There doesn't seem to be any way to contact the developers without buying the product“
What about this contact form:

“…it didn't email the forms as it should and also tried to redirect to a non-existent URL”
Proforms uses Joomla’s native mail function. If emails are not sent it is up to the user to set up a working Joomla mail configuration (Joomla Admin > Global Configuration > Server > Mail Settings).
There are almost 100.000 installations of Proforms Basic. Guess nobody would use it if email sending doesn’t work properly.

“There doesn't seem to be any way to contact the developers without buying the product“
Also Proforms Basic users are getting support via the contact on
Well if you like to get enhanced support you certainly need to purchase service time.

Very good product!
I have a problem when I validated the form on my website, because it couldn't find the next page. I fill up the contact/support form of and get a reply strait away to help me with me with SEF issues.
Afterwards, Proforms worked perfectly. Good product & very good support !

I first installed proforms basic, then I did the upgrade by buying the license.
Just upgraded I found a problem with joomla administrative menu, but the Mad4team solved everything in a half hour. Great! I highly recommend the upgrade to the PRO version, because the software is intuitive, practical and useful.
Thanks again to Mad4team for fast and effective support.

Despite the link back Proforms Basic is just wonderful. I'm using it for a job recruitments and contact form.
Was able to create both forms within 20 minutes.

The support is awesome.
Had a small question and those guys found a real big bug on my server.
Guess I would have never found this.

I've some pre-fabricated Joomla packages for my clients.
Each customer can test the packages to decide which package shall be the base of the website.
In almost 90% the client decides for a package with Proforms Basic.
Many of them are upgrading to pro version later.

I'd a small issue on one of my packages and contacted the developer.
It took 30 minutes to got a solution.

Customers love this form extension.
Thank you for this great piece of work.

I must admit that there are other free forms with more features but you need to study the software to know how it works.
PB makes everything easy. You can create good looking forms with a few clicks.
Absolutely the right extension for lazy guys like me :-)
If you are looking for convenience use PB.

I can't confirm the reviews on the support for Proforms Basic.
I don't own the advance version and got an answer on my support request within a day.

This is the best free form component you can get. Easy in use and provides very good looking forms.
I can only recommend this extension.

For all dummies this is the real deal. I am not an expert and made my form in 10 minutes (with install).

There are 52 extensions in the contact form category and every contact form has his own special feature.

You don't need any contact form extension if you have Proforms Basic. With this component you can create contact forms in very short time.

You can extend fields and it always looks brilliant.
5 stars for a 5 star extension.

This form component is the easiest I could find.
The system is different to other form components.
Proforms Basic has an own user interface and the form creation works over form templates. If you understand this everything is child's play.

I've been using Proforms - both the free and the paid versions - for some time, and have generally been impressed with the extension itself, and would give it five stars except for this:

I can understand that the developers wish to generate revenue through technical support. However, this is about the only developers site I know of that has no alternative such as a forum for users to discuss issues amongst themselves.

I have what I'm sure is a minor problem that I only have with a specific template, which another user has probably already solved, but there's no place for me to ask.

Trying to force someone to pay a minimum of €25 when they could probably get a solution from a users forum is anti-consumer and frankly, contrary to the spirit of the Joomla! community. If you're not under a service contract, and have ANY kind of a problem, you're just out of luck.
