Check out my new Security, Auditing, Monitoring and Backup service for Joomla - myJoomla.com
I often get asked why Phil-A-Form is so popular when there are other competitive products – When I was busy writing a blog post comparing a few of these “free” alternatives I got an email from a customer which gives his honest opinion and saved me completing my own blog post. I have asked permission to reprint his email here – I have changed nothing in it – his own words
I should be saying thank you for making a product that really works.
I’ve spend the last 5 solid days trying to get these other Contact type programs to work.
- com_fabrik_1.0.4b Full of bugs and hacks to get even the simplest of things working. Forget using Checkboxes of Drop Down boxes as that done work correctly even with the hacks they recommend.
- RSform! this one is a little better but still has problems and not all the features work. Such as the sending of mail to the administrator. Its sends to the recipient but that’s it.
- ChronoForms V 2.3.4 Stable This one sounded good and started out good but does not send or receive mail and looses the submitted value on check boxes
- Phil Taylor’s Phil-A-Form I read the paragraph on this page where it talks about “This product is only compatible with Joomla 1.0.12 and NOT Joomla 1.5″ and thought bugger. I’m using Joomla version 1.0.13. I skipped over your product 3 times, until I was desperate and thought bugger it I’ll have to try even though its not compatible. Then after buying it I found another paragraph hidden deep in you descriptions that it is compatible with 1.0.13. I WOULD UPDATE YOUR SITE TO CLEAR THIS CONFUSION UP. You will get more sales!!
For me its not about buying products or how much, its about the product doing what it say’s it can do.
I wasted 4.5 days on those other products until I installed the Phil-A-Form and then within a few hours I built 7 submit type forms. I love your product and think its the best and its the only one that actually fully works.
THANK YOU PHIL TAYLOR!!!!!!
