qlform Module

The form generator mod_qlforms is based on the Joomla! xml form generation. Any parameter (calendar, text, email etc.) is at your service.

You can use it as:
* contact form
* form to fill database tabel
* major survey jumping from one form to the next
* do something else in prepared class for developers

Validation both via Javascript and PHP via Joomla! Data is sent via email to a contact email address and / or is stored in database table. Also possible is cascading the forms, so that you can generate a major survey jumping from one form to the next and storing finally the data in database. There are many more features (e. g. configurable captcha and prepared class to do "something else", means to add your own code), see yourself:-)

As knowledge about xml formatting and Joomla! form generation is needed, mod_qlform is a useful and mighty tool for developers.

Took me more than a day to add second form page and after 2 days styling css with no luck...I gave up. It's good to have all options under the fingertips but it's bad if you have to customise something.
This makes it very difficult for me to get the result I need. Now I want to find something else or create my form with PHP.
Appreciate their offer to make my form, but I don't like to ask for unpaid help for free plugins.

thank you for your review.

Concerning css:

mod_qlform produces a very clean and solid html code. Thus it is easily accessible for css commands. Just use basic css knowledge (float: left; clear both; a. s. o.).

Concerning module assignment:

mod_qlform is just like any other module in Joomla! that you assign to a menu item in a module position. Even several usages on one single page is possible.


PS: I will consider offering basic style parameters in backend for easier usage of this module:-)

Apart from being an exccellent module that makes creating forms a breeze, also the support is superb.

I had an error on my page with one of the module settings.

Sent an Email to the developer. One hour later she released a bugfix update. Th error was gone.

I love this module and use it on many of my sites.

Many thanks to the developer!

I built many web sites and many web forms in my career, using different cms and tools. Some are easy to use, some are not.

While I believe a extension should be a time saver, I unfortunately must say qlform is far away from it.
Back then, I liked the idea to use some markup and have full control over the output but these days it's not helpful. Everything takes too long with this module.
First learning all the markup, then building the form like programming html, only to find out there is no submission manager.
Using phpmyadmin for this is too uncomfortable and not recommended for my clients.

There are already too many things to take care of when creating a new web site and I can't afford to sit half of the duration of a project on creating forms.

Will be happy to see if they read my criticism and create a new more useful module. I would be the first one to donate something!

Installed perfectly the first time. I even got the form to work right the first time. Since I am not a professional designer I email support with a formatting question and they immediately gave me the answer. Thank you so much for your prompt answer to a design question even though it was really not a support question.

I'm using qlform for a while to realize different kind of Joomla-projects. Yesterday I wasn't able to create a form for the first time, because I needed the attribute "placeholder" for input fields.

After trying to fix this problem by myself, I gave up and wrote an mail to the support - late at night. When I startet my mac in the morning, I've got an mail with a great workaround - it works perfectly.

Thank you so much for this great extensions and your amazing support.

One of the best extensions I've encountered, and the support is exceptional! The ability to write the data to the Joomla or another database is particularly useful. I can see I'll be using this one a lot.

I see in other reviews that some find writing the code a challenge - Its worth persisting! My CSS skills are not good, but the author went out of her way to help me get things formatted just right!

Really, if you search for a tool to create forms, stop looking, you found it.
AND the support (Mareike) is fast and friendly AND competent.

Thank you so much Mareike.

I'm using ql forms for a number of sites.

It's easy in use and works great. Also higly customisable - you can make nearly anything you want.

I've had some problems with getting some elements of the form to work in css styles, but withing a couple of hours I was contacted back by support which is very friendly. The support came up with the working sollution.

I'm really happy with ql forms extention! Surelly recommend it to everyone!

Good job!
