Introduction

Contact forms, Forms, Development, Development Tools

The form generator mod_qlforms is based on the Joomla! xml form generation. Any parameter (calendar, text, email etc.) is at your service.


You can use it as:

  • usual form features:
    • contact form
    • sendcopy implementation
    • works with J! captcha plugins
    • major survey jumping from one form to the next
    • store all data in database via J! messages component
  • developement features
    • custom validation class
    • custom preprocessing of data
    • custom functionality via predefined class
  • paid version
    • fill database table
    • send/store files

Validation both via Javascript and PHP via Joomla! Data is sent via email to a contact email address. Also possible is cascading the forms, so that you can generate a major survey jumping from one form to the next. There are many more features (e. g. use captcha plugins and prepared class to do "something else", means to add your own code), see yourself:-)

The paid PRO version also allows storing of data in local or nexternal database as well as sending of files.

As knowledge about xml formatting and Joomla! form generation is needed, mod_qlform is a useful and mighty tool for developers.

All form fields see here: http://docs.joomla.org/Category:Standardformfield_types

I haven't tried all the functions yet, but seems very comprehensive.
Ease of use
Maybe because I was more used to WordPress, it's not very easy for me so far. However, I shall figure out with the help of authors soon.
Support
Excellent support for a free plugin, respond quickly and in detail.
Documentation
" (without ' of course)", but why not just delete the " ' " instead? However, I can see the authors made a lot effort to enhance it.
I used this to: evaluating CMSs for a project. It's a bit weird that this textarea has more words limitations than the others, so I'm going to use this to say danke. Sorry, some of my words maybe a bit harsh, I know how difficult it is to develop and maintain a software / extension. Thank you!

Fake data
This module places a "punch" button on the website. Clicking that button all texts of the very website are replaced by Chuck Norris facts. You might consider to replace all texts on the website with random dummie text on the fly (javascript) to see whether the layout can cope with various kinds of text length. If you do, make sure you use brute force! Btw Chuck Norris never uses this module, ever....
