  • Get this

Joomla 3.2.2 or greater is recommended, but BF Survey will also work on Joomla 2.5.

Subscription also includes access to all versions of our survey products, including BF Survey Plus and BF Survey Pro (for Joomla 1.5).

Don't take our word for it, download our trial version of the survey software and install it on your own website. This way you can try before you buy and see if this software will meet your survey needs. You can also access all the documentation for our survey software without needing to purchase anything, so you can see exactly if our survey software will meet your requirements before you commit to purchase.

Whilst this survey software can be used for simple surveys and forms such as your contact form, it can also scale up to create much more complex surveys and applications. BF Survey version 2 is written using Akeeba's Framework On Framework (F0F), which means that you have the flexibility of overriding all the front end output to completely customise the survey to suit your website. F0F allows you to create media overrides, so you can copy the CSS files used in your survey into your site template, and create your overridden version that will never get affected by software updates.

By default, BF Survey version 2 creates mobile responsive surveys using bootstrap, and your radio and checkbox survey fields are converted to labels so that they are easier to press when accessing your survey on a mobile device. That said, if you don't like this feature you can create a javascript override for your survey and turn off this feature.

You can have fields on your survey show or hide based on answers to previous survey questions, and this is AJAX driven so you don't need to refresh the page to see the change, it occurs immediately when you select the option in the survey question.

There is a terminate immediately option, where you can end the survey and redirect the user to a particular URL if they select a specific option. This can be useful for surveys where you want to qualify the participant, or in cases where the rest of your survey just isn't relevant to them.

For each survey, there is a stats view that shows a graphical representation of your survey data, and you can control who has access to see this information. There is also reporting capabilities, where you can select your criteria and fields required, and generate PDF files of your survey data, or export to csv for use in Excel.

The survey software will automatically create a database table to store the data for each survey, and each question has its own field to store the answers to that survey question.


Does all the basics but has some really nice features if you wish to do something more complex. Is quite versatile.

Ease of use

Not too complex at all for the basics. Is worth reading through the online manual for the more intricate work due to its versatility.


Excellent. Tim is knowledgable, insightful and happy to assist. A very good experience.


The online manual covers a lot with the necessary graphics included. More detailed explanations than competing extensions in my experience.

Value for money


I used this to: Marketing process related data collection.

So Far So Good

Posted on 27 December 2014

The functionality of this extension so far is very good. It's working as I had envisioned.

Ease of use

The use of the BF Survey is pretty easy. Review the manual, it will make things much easier than just going for it yourself.


I've had 2 issues and so far support has been top notch. They have responded timely, even during the Christmas holiday!


The manual so far has been very useful. I think they have worked hard to explain everything as best as possible.

Value for money

I would say the value has been well worth it so far.

I used this to: I use BF Survey to create a membership survey for a local fitness facility that offers a full variety of options for it's members.


There's not really any modules out there to meet my exact demands but BF Survey comes pretty close. The support level was outstanding!

Ease of use

I am an absolute web developer amateur; however I managed to get almost everything settled myself within a short period of time.


As pointed out by others in their reviews the support level from Tim is absolutely fantastic. GREAT!


Excellent documentation

Value for money

No doubt - BF Survey is value for money!

I used this to: I needed to create a personality assesment test on my website and searched the market finding very few alternatives. I contacted Tim before buying the module and he was very helpful and honest about the lack of features in his product in regards of my needs. The solution works!

The product description touched on several of my requirements, the demo was impressive, and the previous customer reviews were sterling... so I took a chance and got the subscription...

The only problem, I had trouble uploading to my server. Sent a support request, got an answer back very quickly...with the correct solution... and all while he was out of town. So... support is top-notch.

After getting it loaded, which was painless... i went through the simple configurations, then began setting up a survey. My first survey (sort of large and detailed) was setup within an hour, functioned perfectly and looked great.

Conclusion: I seriously doubt there's another survey component out there that's a better value. The product itself is intuitive... simple to learn and feature-rich. Support was fast and accurate.

I needed to ditch 'survey monkey' and bring complex assessments with question logic into a single site and BF Survey made it possible.

I needed to migrate from J2.5 and the developer was particularly helpful and responsive to my suggestions.

Now that I’m finally J3+ I have found that the extension is stable, clean and rather more clever than you initially recognise and provides way more functionality than I could have ever extracted from the chimp. Love the responsive feel. Perfect solution. Buy it before the developer realises that its under priced.

Excellent product with excellent support service. I had to migrate from a competitive product, and found BF Survey Plus easy and intuitive to use and with very professionally looking surveys. Tim was more than helpful and responsive in helping me to sort out a few niggles on my side which had nothing to do with his product.

First class

Quick to understand and set up. Great looking and functional. Very fast support response. And it doesn't cost much. Recommend it!!

If I could give 'excellent plus' I would.

I used an old version on an earlier site and upgraded to 'Plus on J3.1.5

Tim was helpful on upgrade, but fantastic when I hit a problem, which turned out to be nothing to do with BF, rather a residual error in J3.1.4 - which my site did not even think it was running!

Sent him an access ID before I went to bed, and by the time I got up he had tracked down an solved my problem - service simply without parallel.

Tim and his product deserve our support!!

I have switched from one popular survey component to BFSurvey and I had issues for migrating the content from other component. I had got excellent help from Tim and everything went smooth and working ! Bf Survey is a great survey component with easy to create , with more features and and with nice interface. I recommend this component.

If you're looking for a professional survey component this is it! Also the support is fantastic and very fast. I needed a little help with an issue and Tim responded almost instantly. Thanks again for a great and valuable component!
