Decent forms?

Recommended Posts

I'm really surprised with all the drag and drop simplicity of pagelines, there's no good forms. Why wouldn't that be included in pagelines?

 

At any rate, what should I use to build nice looking forms, like the ones on pagelines.com for example when clicking the download button: http://www.pagelines.com

 

I would've thought everything on the site could be done pretty simply with the drag and drop.

 

I guess I should mention, I'm on pagelines 2.4 and I really have no idea whats going on with this new DMS or why or if I should upgrade.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

No PageLines platform from Platform Pro, PageLines Framework to DMS include a contact form template. The reason for this is, themes that include a contact form template are usually pretty generic and most people don't use theme.

We recommend using a plugin, we use Gravity Forms (premium plugin).

 

However, there are a number of other free plugins you can use, such as:

 

http://wordpress.org/plugins/ninja-forms/

http://wordpress.org/plugins/grunion-contact-form/

 

There are even more on the Wordpress plugins repository.

Yeah, I've seen many people on here talk about using Gravity Forms. My problem with that, is there is a grand total of ZERO examples of actual forms on the Gravity Forms website. None. My assumption is that the Gravity Forms plugin offers a lot of "capability" with no actual nice form designs. In other words, I assume even with the premium plugin, I'm betting I'm still going to have forms that look like they were designed by a blind junior high student and I'm still going to have no nice forms after paying for that also. :)

 

Or maybe I'm wrong and someone here would be willing to show me the actual forms that come with Gravity Forms?

 

Thanks.

Just purchased Gravity Forms. As I figured, no form designs included. I guess instead of a form plugin that makes a basic form, I'm looking for somethign that helps with DESIGNING the form. Back to the drawing board.

Not sure what you mean designing the form, all forms regardless of website usually look the same. Gravity Forms is awesome, so if you can provide an example of what it is you're trying to achieve, we may be able to assist you.

Since I have tried so many form builders I have to share.... ;-)

 

The BEST one for me is the "WEb Form Builder" by Coffeecup software,

both for Mac http://www.coffeecup.com/osx/web-form-builder/

and Windows http://www.coffeecup.com/web-form-builder/

They have a free version, the Pro version is around 69 $.

 

The best things are (a bit like in Paglines...):

- Drag & Drop form builder

- many templates

- fully RESPONSIVE (most other form builders are not)

- lot of Design customization possible without coding

 

Its not a WP Plugin but a software,

so you can either embed the form with the provided iframe and they host it (1 form is free),

OR you can install the complete form on your server.

 

Its no commercial, I just spent so many time to find a form builder that lets me build RESPONSIVE forms EASY,

so I am happy to share ;-)

      Hi,
      After the latest update of platform 5 and other Pl plugins the forms stopped working. Do you have an idea what could be the problem for that?

      Hi All!
       
      Usually I am pretty good at problem solving, but I can't figure this one out! I have tried two different quiz plugins and both have given me odd spacing like this. I have already tried testing by deactivating all plugins and removing all custom css. No change to the spacing.  Any ideas what is causing this? Here is the page.

      So I'm using gravity forms to take entries on volunteers for an event. 
       
      The goal is to have 200 volunteers in total for the event. 
      I've had some requests from clients to show a counter (maybe iBox - Counter) on the webpage, showing how many entries have been submitted and maybe a StarBars style part showing how close we are to the goal... Is there a native way to do this in DMS 2?
       
      Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated!

      Hello,
       
      I am using DMS2 with the default theme.  I have inserted short code for a NInja Form onto the slider and it's not working properly.  You'll notice that you have to actually click on the label of the field in order for the field to be editable.  I almost wonder if I should place the field label in the field itself to work around the issue, but I would prefer to simply be able to use the form in the way I had originally intended.  Can you please have a look and see what the conflict might be?  I should add that I have inserted the form elsewhere in widget areas and in the body of pages and the it is only when place onto a Rev Slider that I experience the issue described.

      What is the easiest and most customizable way to add a contact form?  A built in, customizable component would be great.
