Thanks for bringing us the component and great support...
Reason: Review contains a statement which is inaccurate: Our documentation has been very much improved since last year. We added videos, articles and the forum topics can solve any of your issues.
If you've got a site where you want your users to provide plenty of feedback/submissions, RS Forms Pro is an invaluable extension.
I've been doing web work for 10 years, RSForm Pro has taken my productivity to a level that I would have never thought possible. It's been revolutionary for my web; you could compare it to when I first started using DreamWeaver and CSS years ago. I'm able to move from concept to design to the live site in record time. As a result I can really focus on the needs of the non profit I work for instead of tweaking html/php files and ftp-ing. It's allowed me to think beyond the time constraints and complexities of tweaking php or other processing scripts.
That's not to say it's all roses, there's still a learning curve and there are still a few bugs in the Pro version. But don't fret, the RSForm forums are vibrant and helpful. Tech support is timely, knowledgeable and helpful.
While RSForm Pro could be described as robust there are some short comings. For example a module allows you to display the results of form submissions on the front end using custom html. This is certainly a helpful feature but you can't edit the records from the front end. But I'm confident these shortcomings will be addressed by the development team in the near future.
In summary my experience has been this is the most effective, time saving, productivity boosting, quality enhancing component I've installed for Joomla! And the price is incredibly reasonable, under priced even at €14.25.

I did have a slight issue with the email cloaking plugin with j1.5 as it was intercepting the email addresses on the form but a fast response from their support team told me why and as I didnt need cloaking, switching off got everything working. It solves the task that we had of it which is all you can ask.
I'd recommend it to anyone in need for a forms extension!
My only minor crit is that there could be a little extra info for extreme newbies on the installing order/process for the com/mod/bots...
I was have challenges with spammers on a previous form component and this extensions resolved that. Also, when I needed some assistance, Alex responded within 24 hours every time except once when he was delayed by 2 days due to a major server upgrade and then he apologized when he did respond. He truly believes in this product and supporting everyone with it.
The form creation is way beyond any of the others that I've seen. The ease of use is amazing and if you don't need anything customized, there are 4 form layouts that should meet almost everyone's needs. If you know some basic HTML, you can customize not only the form layout but also the emails sent out.
With emails, the great thing is that you can create a unique email to send to the form submitter and a different one to the web site administrator or whomever you choose. This solves the problems that RSForm! had in that it would only send one email to a list of addresses so the admin that received the email could not just click reply but would have to change the "To" email address before sending the email. With RSForm!Pro, this is no longer an issue.
So far, I can find no cons to this form extension. And I am running it on 3 web sites and soon to install on 2 more.
I highly recommend this Form for everyone, from beginner to advanced. And I guarantee that this extension will continue to evolve to a better form as time goes on. Excellent job on this!
I have installed and tried 4 different Forms components and I can not begin to tell you how frustrated I have been trying to find one which is simple for me, but also secure (temper tantrums or what!) - in the end I decided to pay for this one as I liked the free demo and its ability to use HTML snippets which I understand so well. I am so glad I did, as I was having nightmares with captcha and getting the darn thing to work on any forms at all.
Alex - pointed me in the right direction and even told me what to do with my server to get captcha functioning. At last, my forms are secure and I can relax! The relief is palpable.
RSform!Pro works great now with our client's website and we feel that not only is their software top notch, but their support is likewise one of the best around. We highly recommend RSform!Pro to anyone serious about maximizing their Joomla installation's custom online form needs.
A quick read of the guide and you're up and running in half and hour - give or take the size of your form. It's actually really user friendly and you can dive straight in and start building your form without the manual.
I had problems installing the 1.5 Trial on my server so I looked on the forum. After a bit I tried dropping a support ticket. I got a reply back real quick with advice and in the end got them to install it for me (I had problems removing it from my Joomla install). All this and I was not even a paid user!
Great product topped off by a great team behind it. The license fee is very reasonable and I will be using this on all future Joomla sites.
