The FAQ and user guides on the site covers most of the questions you might have to customize this component and when this is not enough the technical support is great!
It can be used for many purposes. As a contact form it's very straight forward and easy to manege, but it can also be used for calculate forms. When i run in to some problems with building a calculate form there was really a great support with effortless patience. This extension is really a bargain if you take in mind it's full potential. If you want the best, go for Rsform pro!
But - as been a non developer - i would be ready to pay more even if rs form pro could have support on customized scripts or even tutorials.
The extension has ability to create complex calculator but most of the non developers are well not aware of coding of same - big part is how to customize it
Had the developer could have even a paid support or tutorials on multi dynamic fields and complex calculators or illustrations in rs form pro - it could have been the best possible extension across all joom extensions
I had a problem with migrating from joomla 1.5 to 2.5 and they've helped me in quite an extensive way. The support even dug into the database for me! Awesome :)
The email confirmations were okay to configure but could be simpler to insert fields from the form. Best of all, the emails to administrators are customizable.
The support was first-class. There were easy-to-use FAQ about how to control the character limits in fields and Andrei helped me further to control multiple fields and even to show how many characters were left to the user. This was very helpful. All in all, I would recommend this component to anyone who wants a hassle free program.
First lets talk about the component. I have tried other Form components out there and not only were they convoluted but I never could get them to work. The first time I created a form using RSForm I didnt need one stitch of help.
Once I started getting the hang of things I would post a question or two and I always received a response in about 12 to 24 hours (or faster).
When I had a form that was incredibly challenging they continued to help and never once was rude even after my countless messages.
If you are looking for a easy to use extremely robust form, look no further... RSJoomla has it and much more!
You can also customize Your form with scripts, but You have to be a coder, as support only sends similiar examples to Your request and You have to find out Yourself how it works in Your form.
Would be a 4-5 star rating with friendly support; as a "limited coder" I need assistance with a paid component.
Unfortunately, you were requesting us to do what your developer should do. Helping you customize the form is one thing and we can do it, but building complex scripts that require hours of manpower is your duty, not ours.
However, despite the fact that this exceeded the scope of our Support Policy, our customer support staff was more than willing to help you and indeed pointed you to the already published articles that provided examples and step by step instructions. We tried to help you as much as we could, but you didn't even try to implement the scripts we've provided, you wanted us to implement them for you.
We're constantly improving our support based on customer feedback, so thank you for your criticism, even though I don't think we deserved just 3 stars. Everyone can judge our extension and support level based on the other reviews below.
