Update: VFB Pro 3.3.5

VFB Pro 3.3.5 has been released and includes new features as well as updates to existing functionality.

The Rules gain a welcome update to check for number comparisons, in addition to the keyword matching already available. Now, you can add conditions to check if a number is equal to, not equal to, greater than, or less than a certain number.

We have also added the ability to append form data to your confirmation URLs when redirecting to another page. This setting will allow developers to use PHP in themes or outside applications to capture or display the data in some way. Happy coding!

Lastly, we’ve added some welcome usability and more spam reduction to tighten up your forms.

Introducing VFB Pro 3.0

Today, it is with great pride that I introduce the next major iteration: VFB Pro 3.0.

VFB Pro 3.0 is a complete overhaul, a ground-up rewrite of the entire codebase that is set to carry the plugin into the future. We believe that VFB Pro is the most user-friendly form building plugin on the market and it’s something we hear from our customers daily. As a small company, we owe much of our success to the loyal customers who have given such beneficial feedback to make improvements possible.

There will be more to share over the next few days and weeks about VFB Pro 3.0, but for now these are some of the exciting new features you can find in the new version:

New and Improved Form Fields

We took a fresh look at every single form field in VFB Pro and decided to make each one much easier to use, customize, and manage. All of the form fields now have their own customizations and validation settings so you can finely tune each field as you see fit. For example, the Date field’s pop-up is fully customizable all from within the admin. No longer do you need to know Javascript or PHP to change a field to suit your needs.

We’ve even introduced new fields such as Range Sliders and Star Ratings.

Fully Customizable HTML Email Template

One of the top requests we received from users was a need to customize the outgoing HTML email. Well, now you can! The Email Design feature has been completely rebuilt to allow full HTML control, all within your WordPress dashboard.

We’ve introduced a brand new templating system so you can easily insert entry data, form data, or email template options.

Redesigned Admin and Front-end Forms

VFB Pro’s admin interface was in much need of a design refresh to be more modern. Not only has the design been updated, but the user experience has been refined as well. In place of clumsy, small, accordions is a new tabbed navigation. This change allows us to give major settings room to breathe, as well as introduce new functionality that wasn’t possible before.

We also took a refreshed approach to the front-end form design. Gone are the gray background colors to be replaced by a more neutral color palette that will better blend in with most theme designs.

----

It’s fitting that VFB Pro 3.0 should launch on the day of our three year anniversary. When I launched Visual Form Builder Pro 1.0, I was expecting my first child, a girl. This year, my wife and I are looking forward to our second child, another girl. And it just so happens that VFB Pro 3.0 is launching not long before she is expected to be born.

As always, thank you for your business, your support, and your feedback. We look forward to hearing what you think and working with you to develop the product you need.

Cheers,
Matthew Muro
