- This extension contains a backlink to the developers site.
-- No "Cripple Ware" but the real deal.
The latest backport contains many of the stability upgrades from the 1.8 line plus Joomla! 3.0 compatibility and full integration with ContentBuilder. So now the free version can also finally be turned into a fully fledged CCK:
Install and enjoy!
People often ask what are the differences between the non-commercial and commercial versions.
The non-commercial version contains a few differences that are not that relevant for regular users, such as:
* Footer for QuickMode based forms
(can easily be removed due to the nature of the GPL license)
* Older Code-Base
* Slightly Less Features
(due to being the previous version)
* Forum support only
(with answers from the team as time allows)
Else than that it contains almost all of the features of the commercial version. Fair, isn't it?
Super job on this one. Highly recommended to anybody needing custom forms.
Well done to the Dev team
After contacting Markus with his chat module on the crosstec website (crosstec.de) he answered before I knew what happened and helped me fixing "my problem".
It is a wonderful extension, I am able to make/design the form the way I wanted and had in mind; that is great, but what really excited me was the fast and wonderful support from Markus.
THANK you Markus
It was easy to get started, and then when I needed some more complicated facilities they were there.
Its ALL there basically, nothing is missing, you just have to read the manual and the forums to find what you need.
The support guys are very helpful in leading people to a solution, even when you are using the free version.
I create a multi-page form to register for a sports event. Well explained with the videos and tutorials I was fine at the beginning.
I had problems with the Ajax validation and asked the free support. Immediately I received help.
Special thanks for the quick responses.
Con: The documentation over-complicates this extension. You should get a simplified (less wordy) version that would be better received by a broader audience.
Yes the reasons are that a good part of this js is generated but also to save http requests.
I used it only for a few minutes and noticed that Label tags do not match up to the input name="" part. It would be good if the for="xx" matched with the input id="xx" and input name="xx" (because infieldLabels script needs it).
Backend lets you edit submitted forms, that is good because some extensions don't allow that for some reason. But there is a lot of info at the top that isn't needed so it looks like a mess (payment details?). But you also have to tick a checkbox next to each field before clicking Save, that seems weird and there's no tips on the page.
A user of your level, checking for IDs and names of an HTML objects, should at least read the docs. We have plenty of documentation and examples for integration with form objects that demonstrate how to connect to your 3rd party scripts.
With our framework, there is no reason to name ID and name of an HTML object qually (and it doesnt make sense for other technical reasons).
There is also no extension in the entire forms category that takes more care about integration than BreezingForms.
The QuickMode is for sure the most easy to use form builder.
Try all these typical left-drag-to-right form builders when having large and/or complex multipage forms. Happy scrolling. Starting from a certain point of complexity, the QuickMode is the best way of creating forms. That's why we always say, use BreezingForms for more complex tasks rather than simple contact forms. There are plenty of free little forms extensions out there.
However, I would have welcome if you would have tested BreezingForms more than just a few minutes as you state. There is simply too much work in it in order to judge over it like this.
