- NO ability for submitter to come back and edit the form later.
- complicated for nothing
- my customers had plenty of issues while filling the form, nospam messages and so on.
a regression for Phil-A-Form :-(
waste of time and energy.
I will move asap from it probably to smartformer
Thanks for taking time to provide your review.
I'm pleased to say that "Pausable" or "Come back and edit later" forms is NOW a feature of bfForms since Aug 2009 as a direct result of customers asking for this feature. Hope you like it.
bfForms is not complicated, you simply add form fields, and add submit actions - however we give a lot of control and options that you can use to customise your form exactly how you want it ALL WITH NO PROGRAMMING REQUIRED!
All Spam controls are configurable - if you dont like them then just disable them :-)
This form component is good for beginners, but also for more advanced users. You can create very complex forms with it, but also some easy forms if you want. Everything is possible.
Some other nice features are the auto update checking. Everytime you go to the component via Joomla it checks if you have the latest version installed and let you know.
Another nice feature is the anti-spam of this form component. It has a LOT of cool and new anti-spam techniques build in. There are no captcha's (so no hassle for your customers). The spam controls are invisible, but they work perfectly! And if you want you can also use 3th party spam controls, like Akismet and Mollom (which are great too).
This one is the best, for sure!
The generated forms are of exceptional quality, and the spam control is excellent.
I very highly recommend this component. The price is also very reasonable. Thank you Phil for your hard work!
So far, we've purchased this component for two commercial websites. The content managers for both sites are non-coders, and now they're able to easily create and edit forms. This ability saves them time and money.
After our first installation last fall, Phil Taylor has continued to add new features. Plus, he responds quickly and politely to email. In fact, I just sent a Tweet to @blueflameit this morning, and he responded within minutes--informing me of a new feature.
The only feature I'm wishing for is multi-page support. Many of our clients have long enrollment forms, and it would be nice to break them down into shorter pages.
The installation process was easy. A few files required CHMOD 777, but the messages on the installation screen told us exactly which files had permission issues.
Overall, my clients and I are extremely pleased with Phil Taylor's Forms. This component is a fantastic value, and I'm sure we'll be purchasing additional licenses for future sites.
After trialing many formmakers for Joomla, I'm so pleased I found this one!!
I was up and running in no time at all.
I got a bit lost at the start and thought I'd bought the wrong product, but an email to Phil Taylors support crew (which was answered very quickly) had me on the right track in no time.
The more I get into this form maker the more powerful and versatile I realise it is.
A great product at a price I beleive is far too cheap, I would have been more than willing to pay double for it!
Not only is the product quite robust, it makes launching a form, even a custom form, extremely easy.
One of the best things about Blue Flame is their unbeatable customer service. I had a need that the forms component was not meeting, I emailed Phil and within hours had a custom solution provided to me free of charge. It's hard to find genuinely good customer service these days and Phil Taylor does not disappoint!
Buy this component, it's worth the money for the support alone.
As a php developer, I thought I was going to have to write my owns form extension, as I couldn't conceive of someone writing something flexible enough for my needs. Was I wrong! bfForms for Joomla is simply one of the most robust extensions for any web platform I have ever seen, not just Joomla. The $45 spent on this application has saved me days, maybe weeks of coding, and has given me an interface and capabilities much richer than I would have given myself.
Of particular importance to my site are the ability to add forms to module compenents, the ability to COMPLETELY customize the html and css used to generate the form (Click the custom html form in the layout pane and play with the new tab), the ability to add non-form elements (images, phrases, etc.) and the ability to post the form data to other pages/domains (see the knowledgebase article on this topic).
Additionally, I had a question about the codebase that I dashed off at 1am MST, and received a response within a couple hours from the developer himself. That's pretty early even for someone in the UK.
All told my experience with the product and the company have been nothing short of superb!
So my experience
So play with the demo,
This tool is not only easy to use, but really powerful - and the best part is that all the power is there only if you need it. The "power tools" are not in the way of the simple stuff.
The support is excellent...this is exactly the benefit of PAID software. Very cool and more than worth the price!!! It's even fun to watch how Blue Flame used some really cool technology.
Now I no longer groan when it comes to form creation. Forms For Joomla 1.5.x makes it a breeze.
Support was excellent, as well.
Not only does it do everything it says it can do, but it completely insulates the non-technical user like me from the complexities underneath integrating something complicated like forms into your site.
Best thing is I had a couple of questions that were not in the FAQs, and when I contacted Phil with them he was incredibly helpful and spent much more time with me than I'm sure I deserved! I got all my issues worked out and am very pleased wit the new functionality on my site.
5 Stars all the way. If you need Forms, this is the component for you.
