I liked this extension at first sight. but server configurations can make ones going nuts. I contacted the developer and my problem has been resolved with a delay of 5 hours. Ok I can hear the voices yelling :what ??? but folks it was for free. I didn't purchased a copy with hidden link or anything else. It was totally free. But it is not only the service I am reviewing. In ther first instance it is this well done product. it is easy, i understood everything in 5 minutes, and it does everything what I needed. If I could vote more than 5 stars, I would.

This is by far the most user friendly form extension. JForms might be a similar easy to use component but I miss some features. If you need a good form plugin where you don't have to invest lots of time to learn the worklflow, this is the right one.

Great component. We´ve tried several other contact-components, but THIS ONE is one of the best. Easy, flexible and working as it should. Fine Support (little reg. fee for removing the copyright link).

Since a long time period I didn't see an extension which you can install and it works without problems. this is one like these. There is an automatic language detection, so that you don't have to install and adjust any languages. If your language is not containing default is the english language package. All important settings are made in the workflow, so you don't have to make a lot of settings, before you can start creating forms.
I only can recommend this extension.

First I want to thank you for giving such a wonder full component as open source. Very nicely developed. I really like the admin interface. The best part is the captcha is coming on mouse over. Awesome !!!

I think there is a problem on the "Link to Menu". I tried this and it is not working for me. Once I click the "Link to Menu" I don't get anything. Apart from this, its really nice.

After testing a few of the form extensions I decided to use this for my site. after installing there is not one problem. everything works fine and the admin area is very good structured. What i would wish as future option is a custom layout function but the current layout is also very good.
But finally this is really an excellent component.

This is the best extension for creating forms on Joomla! I have tried each and every non-commercial forms generator available for Joomla and this is the easiest to use while producing fantastic output. You don't need to install the language file. Simply install the component and go! Create a template first, then your form. The GUI is intuitive and well designed. The preview did not work but that could be Firefox 3 issue. You can link the form directly to a menu item once your form is finished. The editor offers various fields including multiple choice buttons which is nice.

Well done, Thank you!

Ok it is my mistake. I didn't need a form extension for a long time period. I used to know facileforms and chronoforms. Last week i had to look out for a form extension. I needed it for a customer. As I saw that there are a lot of new extensions now, I tested a bunch of them. My result is, if your customer needs to administrate the form extension himself, there is only one way. This one! I am serious, I tested this with my customer, and got a response like: Oh this is dead simple. I'd like to use this one. I must say mailforms is a very professional work and it is hard to believe that it is GPL an non commercial. Respect!

The best for me after trying a lot of other components

The most i like is that you can install this software and it works. you need not to set up your language or other setting. just install. better is that you don't need long time to comprehend the component. at all this is a very good software.

I had been looking for a form creation component so that users can submit a variety of content via email. This component fit perfectly. Once you understand their concepts of templates, categories, and forms, you really see the huge flexibility in the component.

Great job guys!

What i needed was a program to simlpy create a form. After trying some packages before, which were to difficult or giving erors on installation, i found finally this package Mad4joomla. In a very short time i could create forms as i wish to have. Also a question to supportteam had been acknowledged very fast! Waiting for the new release.

I compared all non commercial form extensions.
The result is, this is the best one.
It doesn't care about adjusting every little preference and focuses the essentials. due to this facts, the timespan to learn and create forms is very small. on my environment i hadn't any problems, so it seems also to be stable.
Highly recommended !
