Now, with JOOMLA 2.5, the following must be noted, 1)RSJOOMLA keeps their products in synch with JOOMLA development, 2)RSJOOMLA products are VERY affordable, 3)The current version of RSFORMSPRO is by far the best FORMS program I have experienced. I have had many hours of trial and error, as well as developer support of other forms products. I have tried them all but RSFORMSPRO now has to be one of the strongest extensions to do the job it does. I think support has stepped up a bit. Their attitude is less condecending and more helpful. I can only tell you that if RSFORMSPRO will not fill your online form needs, you may need custom programming. I have also purchased other RSJOOMLA product, am satisfied but probably not qualified to provide a proper review until opportunties to better understand their functionality is available.
Great work by the RSForm team. Recommended for everyone.
Does what it promises and a bit more;)
Easy to use, works with every browser and hosting provider (..well I haven't tried them all but..) and even a starter can make things sing with this baby.
Usually it has been difficult to let customers create their own forms from scratch, or even att all, but with RSForms it is possibile.
Good features and flexibility.
Money well spent.
The mechanism for allowing users to view their forms is quite complicated, and you have to be able to figure out their coding system.
Also, what makes this an "average" component instead of a "good" or "excellent" one, is the fact that once a form is submitted, users cannot edit or delete their entries. They can submit forms as often as they like, but no way to change or delete what they have submitted.
Administrators can edit and delete from the back end, so it would seem a simple matter to extend this functionality to users.
They do allow mapping to a mysql database, so if you know php and mysql you can write your own system of reporting, but then again you would probably be able to write your own form system as well.
When the developers allow users to edit their data, it will be a great tool. Until then, it is simply priced too high and not really usable for most users for anything but sending information to the site admin.
Hello David L,
Unfortunately, RSForm! Pro does not state anywhere in the docs/product page/JED page/any other article that users could edit or delete their own submissions. This can be done using some scripting, but it would require strong PHP knowledge. It's simply not built in for the time being, however users will be happy to know that we're working on getting this done as soon as possible, along with some new requested features.
Finally the support is just first rate. I emailed asking for some advice on how to extend the functionality of the components and got a very quick reply with the information I was seeking.
