Formidable Forms review

Formidable Forms, previously known as Formidable Pro, is a WordPress form plugin that packs in all the features you would need to create powerful forms to collect data from users of your site. Once you have this plugin your arsenal, its core features and add-ons will let you put up smartly designed and highly functional forms in no time.

You can begin with the many templates built into the plugin, which can also be easily modified. The HTML for each form element permits easy customizability for layout, style and extra functionality, while built in CSS classes allow you to build complex, mobile responsive layouts. You can play around further with the colors, borders and padding without any coding required using the visual styler.

Even multi-page forms with progress bars can be created easily, which save data on each page turn. Or logged in users can save a form to log out and continue later. Complex calculations are possible using FormidableForms, as is uploading of a variety of files from the front end. You can also add lookup fields, conditional logic, front-end editing and auto email notifications. For submitting multiple sets of information with a single entry, users can dynamically add a new set of fields. Users can even add new posts and pages using these forms, along with meta information, custom titles and featured image, which can then be approved by the administrator. For spam protection, the plugin comes with powerful anti-spam features.

The plugin lets you play around with the submitted data too. There are multiple views to go through the data, and the facility to create charts and graphs. Simple entry management makes updating, searching and deleting of submissions right from the WordPress admin very easy.

And, for even more power, there are a whole range of add-ons, like integrations with email marketing platforms, payment gateways and CRM accounts.
