2012-08-16 Version 2.0.1 Bug Fix release
As i found this one i was totally surprised how easy and fast it is to create forms. Sure you have some restrictions to the visual design but this is the fastest way to build forms.
I also have had a small bug and connected the developers.
I got free support over christmas days. This is very generous.
Thank you Mad4Joomla Team.
Clear sending of user-inputs to chosen emails, no "lost" datas like other components.
Very fast and friendly support directly from programmers.
This was a little bug in 1.1.9.
You can read F.A.Q.'s. There is an instruction to resolve this problem.
Upcoming small update 22.214.171.124 will purge a several little bugs, also this one.
The only problem I am having is changing the configuration so I can have the forms come from my website as opposed to Mad4Joomla. I also cannot get it to send to more than one e-mail address as well as the sender (so he/she can get a copy too).
I can't seem to find any answers on how to fix this.
Other than this, everything seems great.
I have tried several form tools and what you want is something bug-free and which works without that steep learning curve and without having to build up the form using bits of twigs and mouse droppings.
This tool gets a form going pretty quick, it is not so intuitive in some areas, adding menu links for instance is done the opposite way to all other components, ie. it occurs within the mailforms component and not in the joomla menu tool (why?). However, that issue aside, it is easy to build a simple form and the result works straight away. It also looks good on the page. The advertising is discrete and can be got rid of with some cash to the developer.
I'd say it was worth the money.
For complex forms with complex scripting please feel free to use facile/breeze forms. But I want a life - so I'll be using mailforms for almost all my requirements from now own.
This component is absolutly professional and it is absolutly free. Ok they demand a small fee for hiding the copyrightlink but this is very fair.
At least this is the only benefit they have by this component.
But if you don't need to hide the link you don't have to pay a cent.
I know other commercial extensions which are by far not that professional as this one.
This is very generous.
Respect to the developers.
Very Intuitive and powerful. Congratulations to the developers.
I had some questions during installation that have been answered very quick, competent and friendly. Thanks !!!
In other words, if I can drive it, YOU can drive it!
I downloaded Mad4Joomla forms and within minutes, had forms running with none of the previous bugs I was having with the other components (very frustrating items like blank emails coming through, CSS styling looking very unprofessional, etc). The submitted form template from this component (what I receive in my inbox) required almost nothing to set up and came through so clean and easy to read - very professional looking. The forms are very easy to config, and actually lay out the most professional looking of all components I've tried without having to resort to CSS hackery.
The best thing of course, is that it's free. I had considered JoomlaForms, but it wasn't free which is why I looked for something else, and I'm sure glad I found this. Use with confidence!
I wish there was a 1.5 native version, but it runs just fine in legacy mode currently.
If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would.
