Visforms extensions - make your life easier

Compatible Joomla! 3

Visforms Joomla! Form GenaratorIn addition to the solid range of functions that our free Joomla! extension Visforms provides, we have developed a series of plugins to supplement Visforms. With a minimum of effort these plugins help you to fit your forms perfectly into the functionality of your website and they allow you to find new business segments on your website where you can apply Visforms.

Visforms 3.4.0 released

Visforms has become more feature rich once again. This release comes with a bundle of new options for the frontend data view settings.

Visforms 3.3.0 released

Today we have released Visforms 3.3.0. This release comes with two new features. First, the configuration of the spambotcheck plugin options has been moved into the form configuration, which will enable you to set the spam protection parameters individually for each form.

Second, the editor, which can be displayed by fields of type "textarea" displayes now a control, that enables the user to add symbols and special characters in the editor with mouse clicks.

Security Updates for Visforms - 2.1.2 and 3.1.2 released

This morning we received a message, that there is the potential possibility to see stored user inputs, submitted with Visforms, in frontend, even if you do not want to publish them, if you have choosen the wrong configuration settings for your forms and fields . As a result, we have already released a new version of Visforms. Default settings are now set up in a way that no unauthoriesed display of data will be possible. The settings will effect each form and field which you create after the update.

Please make also sure, that you have set up the forms you, which have already created with previous versions of Visforms, in a way that prevents unauthorised display of data, if you do not want to display user inputs by using the frontend data view:

  • Set the form option 'autopublish data' to 'no'
  • Go to the administration data view of each form and set each record set to 'unpublished'.

As a consequence of the changed default settings it is now neccessary to actively change forms and fields configurations, if you want to publish user inputs in frontend. Please read Save results and use stored data in the documentation.

The update is available through Joomla! auto upater and in the download section of our website.

As the support for Joomla! 2.5 will stop on December, 31. 2014, we will release no further updates for Visforms for Joomla! 2.5 as well.

Visforms 3.2.0 released

After almost 3 month of development, Visforms 3.2.0 comes with a new dimension of functions and features.

For the first time you can make fields conditional, so that a field is only displayed when the user has selected a specific option of a select, radio, checkbox or checkbox group.

Further on this release contains many new layout, business, export, accessibility and email feature, as well as for the first time some features for developer. The full feature list is attached and there is additional information in the documentation.

To achieve this further development many changes on code and database structure were necessary. Although the release was tested very thoroughly it is still a BETA version, which is not suitable for productive environments or only after you have tested thoroughly by yourself .

Please support Visforms 3.2.0, test it and let me know about any errors and bugs you might find!

Visforms 3.2.0 requires a Joomla! minimum version of 3.3.6. Installation on older Joomla! versions is not possible and will be aborted without changing your Joomla! installation. You can use the installation zip as full installation or a update for all prior Visforms 3.x installations. Please take a full backup of your Joomla! installation, including the database, before updating Visforms and start testing on a test system.

Notice: If you have created any old template overrides of visforms form views (default.php files) in the past, this overrides will break with Visforms 3.2.0, as the underlying files are profoundly changed. So please remove any visforms overrides in your template folder first.

Visforms 2.1.0 and 3.1.0 released

This release does not only fix some minor bug of prior version but comes with some new features from our feature request list. You can use user inputs in the receipt mail and the result text now, so that it is possible to create individual receipts mails. Further more I added some new parameters that allow you to better control the layout of the data view in frontend.

The release is available for Native Joomla! 2.5 Joomla! 2.5 (Visforms 2.1.0) as well as for Native Joomla! 3.x Joomla! 3.x (Visforms 3.1.0).
