How do I integrate a form into a website?

PlanSo Forms creates one shortcode for each form. You can paste the shortcodes anywhere in your WordPress site where you would like to display the form.

It is possible to display multiple forms per page!

What is required to use the PlanSo Forms Plugin?

For the Plugin to work you need at least WordPress 3.6 and PHP 5 and above.

Which browser works best with PlanSo Forms?

We recommend to use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to manage and create your forms. Your users are not limited to any browser – they can use whatever they like: desktop-based or mobile.

Which WordPress theme works best with PlanSo Forms?

We tried to be as compatible with modern themes as possible. Therefore we choose Twitter’s Bootstrap 3.2 for the forms frontend as this is one of the most used CSS frameworks within modern themes.

Still we tested and optimized PlanSo Forms with more than 25 of the most popular WordPress themes available.

In case a generated form does not look as good as expected we included an option to integrate a special style sheet to make the form compatible with your theme.

Does PlanSo Forms come with spam protection?

We hate SPAM! And we don’t like captchas neither. That’s why we have integrated an innovative spam-protection that does not rely on captchas.

By default we try to detect malicious spam bots from within the backend. In some cases it is however not possible to detect these. Therefore we included an extra option based on JavaScript that will stop more than 99% of all spammy activity.

Is PlanSo Forms the right Plugin for me?

Whether you are a professional developer or not you will quickly recognize that Planso Forms is adjusted to your needs.

PlanSo can be used without any coding knowledge through the drag-and-drop interface.

Why should I use PlanSo Forms, rather than similar solutions?

PlanSo Forms is a truly unique Plugin for building forms via WordPress. The idea of a Form Builder Plugin was born while using the existing landscape of free as well as paid WordPress plugins for creating forms. None of which really satisfied our needs.

After some time with our heads on heat and our hands deep in the code we have come up with what we consider a truly easy way to create individual forms. Besides the possibility of creating forms via the drag-and-drop menu, PlanSo Forms comes with the possibility of inserting flexible columns into a form. The spam filter functions without annoying captchas.

And there are much much more features , handcoded with love in Germany.

How much does PlanSo Forms cost?

There is a free and a pro version. For exact details and a comparison please have a look at our pricing page.
