WordPress Form Builder Plugin – Gutenberg Forms


WordPress Form Builder Plugin – Gutenberg Forms

Existing form plugins do not allow you to build your forms within Gutenberg Editor. They offer mostly custom made form builder which was a great feature earlier. But with the Gutenberg editor, you should be able to build your forms directly in the Gutenberg editor.

That’s why we built Gutenberg Forms.This is the next generation WordPress form builder plugin. You can easily build your forms by adding form fields as gutenberg blocks within the Gutenberg Editor. You do not need to leave the editor to build your forms using some other drag & drop form builder. Now you can build your form within Gutenberg editor using Gutenberg Forms.

Gutenberg Forms adds a Form Block in Gutenberg and all the form fields are child blocks which you can add within the Form Block, nice and easy. You can add multiple contact forms, and you can customize the form within the Gutenberg Editor. Google reCAPTCHA integration added for spam filtering.

Feature Highlights

The following are some of the main features, but there’s more which you need to checkout by installing the plugin.

  • No Bulky Form Builder – Build Forms Directly in Gutenberg Editor.

At the time of writing, Jan 2021, this plugin was able to fully do the job that I needed it to do and I'm grateful for it, just see it as a work in progress and be prepared to accept rough edges. You can manually build forms and they work as advertized. The plugin comes with a number of templates, but at the time of writing most of the templates are not updated to work with the current Gutenberg and will display errors when inserted, you'll have to build them manually which is not hard. The documentation is comprehensive. Thanks to the author for some solid work.
This plugin is much better than any other forms plugin. Most of it is free, whereas others constantly want to plug their PRO versions. It comes with a full-fledged back end database solution. With Contact Form 7 I need to go through hoops to get that.
I can see a lot of work has gone into this plugin because to design & code something as complex as a Gutenberg forms plugin is no small feat. Congratulations on what you've achieved here and I after only half an hour, I can already see it has more functionality than some "old style" commercial plugins. I'm experiencing some minor issues like not being able to insert a form from one of the many existing templates the plugin includes but I put that down to the "dynamic" nature of the Gutenberg codebase rather than the plugin itself.
I have setup the form and connected with MailPoet, it works really well 🙂 The only issues I had were to change the styling of required fields and how to setup a form with multiple columns. For both issues the dev replied very fast and provided the appropriate docs.
This plugin works out of the box perfect! Convenient, simple, got everything I need. No plus-version required. Amazing!
