So glad to have found Form Maker. It's simple, intuitive and does all the things me and my client needed for a simple form. Have no idea about anything more complex, but I'd assume the level of intuitiveness would continue through.
:) So good to end that frustrating search.
Thanks guys excellent extensions & after sales service. Kent
Support: There is a well organised forum should you have a problem and the response time, should you post a problem, is excellent.
I had one small issue regarding missing data in just one field of my form in the emailed content. I posted a message in the forum and within a few hours support had email me for access to my site. An hour later I received another email from support saying the problem was now corrected.... that's what I call great tech support service.
1. again very hard to use
2. again bad css options
3. again not professional
There is other free forms that are better.
I can't recommend to anyone.
We are sure this review is written not by any of our customers. Moreover, the person that wrote this did not even bother himself to try Form Maker before writing this review.
1. None of Form Maker versions ever had any css options. The design and layout of the forms are defined by 30+ themes, that can be modified by editing the css, not the options.
2. Form Maker is a commercial extension that does not use automatic updates. We send updates only by request and we have the list of customers, that received this update. This person is definitely not in the list. None of this customers contacted us with issues described in the review.
I tested the demo version and then purchased the full version for the convenience of PayPal forms, Google Maps and additional form fields.
There were no extension conflict issues and the extension and plugin required had minimal effect on server resources.
I used to spend lots of time building forms and then adding css so that they matched my clients sites. Now all I do is build it with FormMaker and choose one of the themes to match their site [plenty to choose from].
Hours of work saved every week.
Thanks guys for a GREAT extension. Keep up the FANTASTIC work!
Pros of Form Maker- Very much user friendly admin area. I built a pretty much complicated form just for few minutes.The price is also great. The support team was very helpful.
Cons of Form Maker- It is not responsive, but developers promised this in next release.
The demo looked good whereas I thought from the beginning that the view (themes) is not that pretty.
My decision was to adapt the view to my needs.
BEEP ... WRONG!
Adapting the view is real pain.
The table structure makes it almost impossible for responsive design.
Adapting CSS is very awkward because not commented.
And so on...
If you don't want spending lots of time in view adaption I suggest another form component.
