Dear User, this extension contains a small visible copyright link to us as copyright holder. We consider it as a small thank you. It helps to promote our company. This is common practice on many joomla extension and supported by the FSF.
A decent user interface which is totally different to all other extensions makes it very easy to use also for old customers.
If you need a form maker for your customers take this one.
Captchas are very stable now (includes also recaptcha by default), custom email creation, using the default menu linking and so on ... makes it more stable and versatile.
Keep on this good work.
But, i´m so said, after installing easily and after managing the first form, i had to see, that the color of text on the website is black, the modul changes the color of the text obove of the form.
Of course basic means basic, but thats very dissapointing. I can´t believe that the advanced version could fix this. Mostly i do not understand why this must happen.
The best component for joomla for forms.
Very easy to use and easy learning.
You can increase your property with APPS.
For me it was imperative to change the metatags and metadescriptions and they helped me quickly and for free.
The only thing is, if you don´t wont the add link, buy the pro version.
Everything goes great but to receive the e-mails with the filled forms. I do not see e-mails on my e-mail box creating by you component. Could you list me all must-to-do's for configurate proper sending.
Hello and thank you for the review.
Please contact us via the contact form at:
Well every normal person who can read has noticed that this component is called Proforms BASIC!
Yes, BASIC because of basic features ... hmmmm ... sounds logical.
We guess this is an attempt to encourage us to provide a redirection function for Proforms Basic, but no, we will not.
Especially not if users are trying to do this via reviews.
Proforms Basic has more functions than Mad4Joomla.
Anyway, thank you for this review. It encourages other users to purchase the advance version.
I have found ProFroms to be a very intuitive extension to use, and so far, the best form component I have worked with.
I support and encourage the developer(s) to create more Joomla extensions with the same care and precision of ProForms.
Until to find out how and where and with which way to add it to my webpage, I spent more than 45 minutes!!!!!! That is terrible.
You should definitely add a manual -step by step- how to add the component to your website.
When I started to configure the form, I was so excited how easy was the setup and my first thought was "wow I'll tell tomorrow morning to my client, to buy the pro version". BUT after I stucked and didn't found ANYWHERE any help (here or at the website), of the how-to, I did 10 steps back.
And one more thing: I don't know if it's available at the pro version, but there is no option to add any form to an article. Only to menus!!
If that can be answered I would be grateful, because if I finally decide to buy the pro-version, I want to be able to add forms to some of my articles.
thank you :-)
first of all please get in contact with us via:
because asking questions and asking for help in JED reviews is not allowed.
Yes we have excellent online manuals and support but only for the advance version.
And yes we have the appropriate plugin to embed forms into articles, but also only for advance users.
Don't forget that components never can be embeded directly into content articles. This only possible with a plugin.
Here are the Proforms Add-Ons:
Please contact us and we will help you to find the right service package which meets your needs.
Rely on this review.
Thank you for this review.
Seems there are still some honest guys respecting our work.
Customized than you text can be made with the advance version in a very easy way.
But we don't want to hide that you can also change the standard thankyou text in whatever you like.
It is not that convenient as for the advance version but you just need a text editor to change.
The frontend language files can be found in components/com_proforms/language.
This is only possible with advance version and the form in content plugin.
Please purchase a subscription of the advance version:
Checked the demo sites with Safari -> Flawless.
I became suspicious.
Downloaded and installed the extension.
Built a form in 5 minutes - used it with Safari and surprise - surprise no bugs!
Checked with Chrome (webkit too) -> no bugs!
Shame on you writing this review!
Though that I created a form in 5 minutes is worth givin’ 5 stars.
Don’t know the intention of this review but it encourages people like me telling the truth.
However when one of my clients contacted me to ask why I had not responded to several forms they had sent, I eventually discovered that it does not work in Safari. The forms simply do not get sent.
Plus the fact that there is no help, support or forum makes it unusable. Shame.
We need to state out that at the first 72 hours a server error caused corrupt zip files. If you caught one of these files please download the package again.
We have done many browser tests and haven’t detected any errors.
The commercial version of Proforms exists since one and a half years.
In that time there was not one bug of this kind. Basic is the same software with fewer functions. It is technically almost not possible that an error of this kind happens.
(Except for corrupt zip files)
Ok let’s proof! Test the demo with any safari browser:
Because of the basic version doesn’t send confirmation emails you can also test the pro version where you have the opportunity to send you a copy of the email:
In both cases you will see that forms are working pretty well with safari browsers.
The reviewer writes also:
“Plus the fact that there is no help, support or forum makes it unusable. Shame.“
We ask for understanding that we can not give support and other help for free.
If you purchase a service subscription of the commercial version you will get access to the helpdesk. There you can find manuals, tutorials, downloads and can request support.
We are talking about the same software!
No! It is a FULL FUNCTIONAL excellent form extension and yes there are some features missing.
This is why I am thinking of changing to pro.
Anyway... you can create great looking forms very easily and send customized emails.
No form elements are missing and recaptcha is build in.
The developers give an excellent piece of work away for free.
