After many hours attempting to adopt and adapt a goodly number of free php scripts to create registration forms (and failing miserably) I can certainly recommend this programme. OK, you'll have to shell out some money, but my experience is that it is both inexpensive and more importantly, worth every single penny. It has done in less than an hour what I have been unable to do in days.
Prasanth has done a brilliant job in creating software that does "exactly what it says on the tin". It is easy to use, is supported by a wealth helpful advice along the way, and if errors occur (because the user does something silly!), reports their causes intelligently, and directs you to a database of explanations and solutions on the Simfatic website. And if there appears to be no known solution, I have found the technical support to be both rapid and accurate. Having used Microsoft's FrontPage and Serif's WebPlus web software for several years, Simfatic Forms fills a very useful niche, and is by far and away easier to use. I can wholly recommend it.
Are there any shortcomings?
Perhaps. I would for example like to see the software developed to include an integrated "login" script and ability to provide passwords to those who have lost or forgotten them. An unlock code sent in an email to those who have just registered would also be useful in adding an extra tier of security.
All this said, if what you need is easy-to-use software for building registration forms and other forms into your web site, to obtain feedback and other responses from your clients, then I think not.
A very pleased customer.
There are features in Simfatic Forms that allows building the form quickly. For example, the 'quick set' feature allows you to quickly add frequently required form elements to the form. You can build awesome HTML Contact forms in minutes.
We tested Simfatic Forms on one of our client websites. The Simfatic Forms software created all of the forms located at http://yourgfm.com. They not only delivered the quality the client was looking for, but by using the server side processing incorporated into the software, they have been 100% spam-free without the need of a capacha. A fantastic benefit when it comes to prospect conversion and lead generation!
If you are a developer that creates custom forms for client projects, I highly recommend Simfatic Forms. The program was definitely worth every penny we spent.
Through the Personalized Auto-Responder functionality, Simfatic Forms allow you to send an email response to your prospects in a real time.
In addition, you can customize emails into the format that you want. The form submissions can also be sent to different addresses based on a certain condition pre-selected by the user (such as a department or regional branch).
If you want custom server side processing, there is extension modules feature. Through Extension modules written in PHP, you can attach hooks to the standard form processing steps (form validation, emailing, database etc) and add your own form processing!
It also has all of the features that I wanted of the much more expensive systems.
I use dreamweaver and make a good few forms and this will save me ages. Thanks for this and good luck and success!
The drag & drop visual designer gives you real flexibility designing your form. No need to fiddle with code to get it right.
You just place the controls sizing and aligning them exactly as you wish.
You get your forms exactly the way you want, placing your controls horizontally or vertically. Pack them compact or loose, complex or simple, with a background image or plain.
Simfatic Forms supports a number of widgets in addition to the native form controls.
