Formidable Pro offers many shortcodes, or shortcuts, which can be used to easily accomplish a variety of tasks. These shortcodes can do anything from providing an edit link to calculating a statistic from your form entries.
Plugin Hooks and Customizable HTML
As a developer, you can freely customize the plugin without editing the source code. Use the Formidable Pro hooks for your custom code and customize your form HTML from the WordPress admin.
Powerful Form Fields
Generate multi-paged forms, add collapsible sections, populate field options with entries from another form, upload files to the location you specify, and include fields with validation for phone, email, or website/URL.
Conditionally Hide & Show Fields
Hide and show fields conditionally based on input in other fields. If using a dynamically populated drop-down, radio buttons, or check boxes, data from the selected entry can be fetched and displayed with AJAX.
Customizable Form Layout
Easily customize the layout of your form using Formidable\’s CSS and layout classes. Simply add the desired class to the individual field options.
