It covers all my needs. The available options cater to everything I use on a website.

Ease of use

Direct, from simple to complete in a few clicks


A striking point is the documentation. I found answers to all my questions regarding the installation and use of the component.


A striking point is the documentation. I found answers to all my questions regarding the installation and use of the component.

I used this to: Created forms of contact for specific actions, achieving 100% of assertiveness in my demands.


It certainly does everything I need in the way of validation and security, including custom javascript and php.

Ease of use

A bit of a learning curve, but questions easily answered by existing forum q&a. It's REALLY slow with MAMP at times


It's been around long enough that pretty much every question has been answered already.

I used this to: Simple forms, but I wanted some custom actions for sequential dates and email template. These were simple to do and almost impossible in anything else I tried. I gave up after my first try and then came back to it.

Easy to use and works fantastically. Only thing I'd say, improve your so called "demo" by about... 500%! There's so much more you can do with chronoforms than that and yoiu simply don't care enough to show it off. Demo is awful! I expected more from you. The product itself gets the 5 stars. Highly recommend this product, even with the crap demo.

I've been using Chronoforms for years and in my opinion it's the best and most user-friendly form creator out there. It's really easy to use, considering how advanced you can make your forms if you need to.

The support team is also very friendly and helpful.

Havin tested many form generators in the last years, I find chronoforms the most intuitive one.

I had some bugs in the free version. Sometimes the form cannot be connected with the database. I think it's a javascript problem. Nevertheless - thanks a lot for this extension!

Chronoforms has been my extension of choice for adding forms for years. It's amazing how much you get for free; it's not only the whole component, but also access to a top quality support and docs (remember, for free). And if you need more, you have paid stuff available.

On the technical side, you get full control over forms: layout, behaviour, custom CSS/Javascript/PHP, integration with Joomla core components and functions, integration with many 3rd party extensions... and yes, most of it for free.

I can't thank "Greyhead" enough for providing this great component for years.

Great Extension

This component takes Joomla far beyond imaginable capabilities. I keep discovering new and exciting ways to use it. It should just be included in Joomla's core, it's indispensable. Great job!

Best on my lists

Actually I've used Chronoforms for years, on several websites and it's always excellent. So I'd like to salute the developer(s) and to recommend it to the users.
