-- No "Crippled Forms" but really usable forms.
The latest breezing forms backport contains many of the form stability upgrades from breezing forms 1.8.x plus Joomla! 3.x forms compatibility and integration with ContentBuilder forms.
Breezing forms lite version can be turned into a form based CCK (replacing its native forms):
Install forms, export forms, import forms and enjoy!
People often ask what are the differences in form creation between breezing forms lite and breezing forms full.
The breezing forms lite version contains a few differences that are not that relevant for regular form users, such as:
* Less Forms Features
(due to being the breezing forms lite version, no Bootstrap forms support)
* Header in forms admin
(can be removed for forms admin due to the nature of the GPL license)
* Basic forum support, only for form questions
(with answers for your forms from our form experts as time allows)
Else than that breezing forms contain almost all of the features of the full forms version. The most fair free forms in the JED.
Breezing forms is suited for form beginners and advanced form users, while we try to balance ease-of-use with form feature richness for form based applications and simple standard forms (everyday forms).
By creating forms with breezing forms, you will learn that breezing forms is the only form builder you need, so no need to deal with plenty of form builders. Breezing forms is just enough to create all your forms.
Breezing forms makes it a lot easier to maintain your forms (export your forms and import the forms on other sites and interchange forms with breezing forms for WP).
We are constantly developing and updating breezing forms for more than 5 years now to give you the best forms experience available for Joomla! as well giving you the ability to create very complex forms and forms that stand out from the form crowd.
Get Breezing forms, install and create your forms today. Tipp: use the option QuickMode forms, the most favored form editor in Breezing forms!
If you're looking for ease of use, this wasn't it for me.
I tried it out on Joomla 2.5.6, and tried to create a form.
I gave up because it seemed more complicated than necessary. For example, when I tried to enter text in the "easy mode" it didn't work. No response.
I gave up. I did give it Average rating due to the fact that maybe it was just me. I did find another form component that was a little more simple, yet does the same thing.
Good work guys.
P.S your package says Joomla 1.7 I'm wondering if this had anything to do with it? Yet on your description is says 2.5 compatible? The only download link on your site links to a 1.7 compressed file.
you are one of the users for those "quick" means "easy".
In that case, better use the QuickMode. Equally powerful and even more (90% of our user base are using it).
I wonder why you didn't try it?
Then you might feel to edit your review.
I have to agree with all previous positive feedback but more than that, I simply cannot find anything that I can't do with it.
I'm using the free version, which only has support in the developer's forums, but according to users in that forum the paid version has the same issues. I followed all the instructions for installing and configuring the extension.
I started out using the Easy Mode, which a video tutorial by the developer. I followed the tutorial step by step and set up my fields and labels, specified field validation rules and even set up some conditional fields.
The next step in the tutorial has you click the Form Settings button. This is where you are supposed to set up the form's name, layout dimensions, database logging and submission behavior. The form won't submit properly without using the Form Settings. However, clicking the button does nothing.
It works perfectly in the training video, but not in either the free or paid version. Despite multiple recent requests for assistance from users in the developer's forums, no replies have been forthcoming.
The same happens with the form's preview button. Clicking that is supposed to open a light box window showing the form in action but nothing happens.
I then switched to Classic mode but didn't get very far. I attempted to set up a simple contact form but the field labels would not display. Already frustrated by Easy Mode, I decided to move on to Quick Mode.
In Quick Mode I was again able to set up a simple contact form but when I tried to adjust the dimensions of the form, the developer's footer containing a link to his web site started displaying in other areas of the form. Even when I put the dimension settings back to their original values, the footer continued to display in the wrong location.
This is not an exhaustive review of all BreezingForm's features but it does point out deal killer bugs in each of it's modes. The system has a lot of potential but in it's current state it's not ready for prime time.
sorry but I cannot agree, BreezingForms is ready for prime time for almost 4 years now.
The "bugs" you describe are not existing. It is the first time I hear about that.
It would be very kind if you could write in our forums what browser you are using, so we are able to spot the issues and fix them.
In current modern browsers the bugs you are referring to are not existent, at least not with major browsers that we tested on.
If you recently upgraded, clear your browser cache since the scripts changed.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and give me a chance to find out why this happens to you. Everybody will participate from it and you would help the community. Thanks.
By the way, this is open source, you can remove the footer at any time ;)
I have little bit Problems with Mailback but i've got quick help from the forum.
Many Thanks and
Finally I found the best form editor and visually are superior to others.
Great! I want the comercial version but I tried first the free (Notice that 11 Backport have problems when create a new form, can't do it for a disorder of buttons) Backport 10 are excellent.
After upgrade to backport 11 make sure you clear the browser cache. The scripts changed, that's why this happened.
don't you think if something is not working the next minute it could be a lead that you have a general issue on your site?
Well, since you not tell us here what is not working but just showing frustration, then it is hard to tell what it could be, so I offer you contact me here => email@example.com and I'll have a look.
Thanks a lot Markus.
please upgrade to the latest version o BF. This has been fixed months ago.
Thanks & Regards,
If you need to have TOTAL CONTROL over form creation, display, functionality... and I mean absolute total, over the top complete control... this is it man! The best part is that right out of the box without doing any extra coding it works perfectly and easily. Then when you decide you need to do more stuff... the option is there and fairly straight forward. The beauty of the system is the combination of "automation" and "customization". You can have both which is rare with complex components.
The form creation display in a "folder structure" in Quick Mode is awesome. Once you understand it it makes so much sense. The back end creation display was strange at first because I "couldn't see it". But after understanding the way it works it makes perfect sense (I would prefer the "Advanced" tab would be just part of the main editing screen when working with sections and elements. Just a quibble).
I think it may help to have some concept of the coding concepts used in extending the basic features, I often take for granted what I know when working with others. What I assume is "easy" is often difficult to others. Even without that knowledge, if you follow the instructions suggested on the forums and the Crosstec site, you can still pull off some amazing tricks.
Forum feedback was very fast and always nailed it. It was like someone was reading my mind.
One recommendation: USE THE QUICK MODE! This seems to be the "best" way in my opinion of course, to use Breezing forms. I used all of the types but found that the creation and organization structure of the Quick Mode is best.
I would suggest that possibly.... Crosstec should change the name of "Quick Mode". At first, based only on the name, I thought it was a simple form creation type intended for "beginners". In reality Quick Mode appears to be more powerful and easier to use than the other types. Correct me if I got this wrong. I actually tried the Quick Mode last after playing with the other types.
