We are using BreezingForms since several years now. The forms are easy to create, well structured and useful for anything you can think of.
Since Joomla is developing over time, the programmers of breezingforms need to follow. Because of this, we recommend to think about their lifetime membership.
I had an unusual issue the other day. I gave them my joomla login info, and they had me up an running asap. I'm writing this review to express my gratitude.
I'm relatively new to Joomla and fortunately for me, I found Breezin Forms and Content Builder, right from the start.
Having had a background in ASP and Dotnetnuke, I was looking for the flexibility and control of cms applications I had been used previously.
These guys have blown that away. Fantastic products, great support.
The outstanding point of Breezingforms is the possibility of massive custumizations and the brilliant support. If you are unsure you should try out the free version before purchasing, it is not artificial limited and also supported by the Crostec staff.
I'm quite sure I will not be disappointed!
1) I have not needed much support from them as the software is well written. But when I do the response is fast, professional and courteous.
2) This is professional level software. This is not for those who need a simple contact form (although it can do that as well). This software is capable of so much more than just a simple form. I have used if for complex applications, accepting payments, conditional fields, you name it.
3) Crosstec has been with the community for-ev-er. This is not a new company, nor are these folks new to Joomla. They have been in since the beginning. I personally have watched them grow, but they always have been professional and competent providers with superior support.
4) Not to be too salesy--- but--- this is the first and perhaps ONLY lifetime subscription to ANYTHING I have ever purchased. Why? Because I know that they are not going anywhere, since they have been with us such a long time now. Also because of the quality work. Additionally, I do work in WordPress, and Crossec provides allot of the same functionality (including 100% of Breezing Forms) for WordPress. Why have two different systems? I use Breezing Forms on both and not have to worry about learning a bunch of other forms systems.
They have a lite version somewhere, You should try it. If you need something robust and capable use Breezing Forms. You will not regret it.
For frame of reference, I have been using Joomla since version 1.5 and I have made dozens of sites with it. From complicated ecommerce sites to simple sites, to blog sites and many more. I am a good designer and a decent front-end coder, but do not write PHP from scratch and struggle with back-end scripting. CrossTec and Breezing Forms makes my life easier by far.
For basic form creation - it is SO easy.
For advanced form creation - it is SO straightforward: no loops or customizations to the code needed.
Recently I needed support for the Google Docs integration and I had two developers work on it and finish within 3 hours. AMAZING!
Very nice developers, very fast responses, and worth every penny.
Look at their feedback - not one unhappy customer. Thanks Crosstec for your great extension and awesome support!
I can say I am a poweruser of this extension.
I use it for contact forms, PDF quotation generation, automatic user content upload, invoice calculation, questionnaires, online surveys etc etc
The basic setup is very easy, and once you dig deeper into the extension you can design some complex stuff.
I am using it for a few years now and I believe I have only scratched the surface of what is possible.
Basically this extension gives you the possibility to design very nice forms and use the user input for whatever you want. Send custom emails or PDF documents, it is all possible.
Support is excellent. You can get a lot of information in the FAQ's and forum and for paid subscriptions you can post in a special suport forum.
Sometimes you have to wait a bit to get a response but if the problem is to difficult to resolve immediately, you can send the developer a PM or email to get some specific support on the matter.
The only downside is that there are a LOT of undocumented features in the extension. Getting advanced functionality will take a lot of testing.
With three levels of expertise covered in their user interface (Classic, Easy, and Quick modes), I started with the Quick mode and can't imagine why I would need anything more.
The flexibility to create forms of almost arbitrary complexity and features is simply awesome.
Controlling the layout of a form is a breeze (similarity is intentional), as is creation of multi-column, and multi-section forms.
PayPal buttons are adequately supported, email acknowledgement, and notification are very flexible.
For most forms, no scripting is necessary, but if you know a bit of PHP, the sky is the limit.
I was able to become well versed in the use of BF using only the Users' Manual, and the Community Forums.
However, I did buy a subscription to be able to take advantage of Crosstec's help desk. The support is excellent and the response time is quick. Though it turns out to have been a problem I should have been able to solve myself, I don't regret having bought the subscription.
These guys are very responsive and helpful.
