    Hello, this plugin is amazing and exactly what I was looking for design wise so thank you. But I am having difficulty receiving the emails from the form submission, I have tried a few different addresses in the „emails to“ section but they don’t appear.

    Do you have any ideas why this might be happening? I would like to fix this as I really love this plugin!

    • admin/ 10.01.2017Antworten

      Is it possible to send administrative mails via the wordpress installation?
      Some of the providers may produce problems with the mails.
      If the form is empty it will not send the mails. Minimum is one field with content.

    • Ben/ 24.01.2017Antworten

      I am also getting this problem Caitlin , did you find a way to fix it in the end?

      • admin/ 24.01.2017Antworten

        Same to you Ben, can you send administrative Mails via the system? Sometimes the plugin does not send mail via localhosts. Some provider block theese mails too ;-(

    • Chris/ 31.01.2017Antworten

      Make sure that your wordpress instance is configured to send emails, correctly. This plugin uses WP’s built in mail function (wp_mail) so if WP can send emails, so should this plugin.

      Check under Admin Area > Settings > Writing and make sure you have the correct details there.

    Bei mir funktioniert es. LG Heidi

  • Chris/ 31.01.2017Antworten

    Is this plugin on GitHub?

    I’ve modified to include captcha (optionally) and I’d like to submit a PR to improve the plugin!

  • Chris/ 31.01.2017Antworten

    Actually, sorry – if you would just be so kind as to add an action to the send_mail method, anyone could do their own validations…

    Something like add_action(‚fw_before_send_email‘) after the POST validations in class-mondula-multistep-forms-shortcode.php around line 71

    Thanks!

    • admin/ 31.01.2017Antworten

      Dear Chris, we will contact you via mail. At the moment there is no open github, but we will send you a mail as soon as it is available. Thx for your support, thx for you help. We will integrate an action as soon as possible. You can find that in the next update.

  • Fernando/ 02.02.2017Antworten

    Hi, Congratulations on the plugin, but I have a problem, when typing in a text field, you write from the total left below the image of the box and it does not look well what has been written, and another thing, is it possible to decrease The space between text fields?

    • admin/ 03.02.2017Antworten

      Hi, thx for your comment.

  • Stephan Becker/ 22.02.2017Antworten

    Hi there. Great idea! Is it possible to use 3d paty email marketing tools such as Get Response or Aweber in conjunction with this tool? I mean by that, can form fields send data to 3d party tools? Thanks

  • admin/ 22.02.2017Antworten

    Hi Stephan Becker,

    sorry but it is not possible to send form fields to 3rd party tools.

    Hi, I really love this plugin I used it in my project but unfortunatley I have more than 5 steps to use in my form , please how can I extend the form to more than 5 steps. Thanks

    • admin/ 06.03.2017Antworten

      Hi Gabriel,
      we are currently working on a pro version that will support more steps and extended features.

    Ist es möglich die Schriftgröße anzupassen für meinen Geschmak ist die Wiedergabe zu groß ?

    • admin/ 09.03.2017Antworten

      Nicht über das Backend. Es wird in der Pro-version erweiterte Einstellungen zum Design geben, derzeit müsste das „per Hand“ individuell angepasst werden.

  • Ron/ 15.03.2017Antworten

    Tolles Plugin! Gibt es eine Möglichkeit die Sprache zu ändern (von z.B. „submit“ zu „absenden“)? Bzw. wo finde ich die englischen Bezeichnungen im code?

    • admin/ 15.03.2017Antworten

      Moin Ron,
      wir arbeiten gerade daran, die Unterstützung für Mehrsprachigkeit einzubauen. Die gesamte Community hat dann die Möglichkeit, Übersetzungen zu erstellen und hochzuladen. https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins/multi-step-form

      Bis es so weit ist, kannst du natürlich die Labels händisch in den PHP-Files anpassen (z.B. includes/lib/class-mondula-multistep-forms-wizard.php)

      Beste Grüße

  • Eric/ 16.03.2017Antworten

    This is *almost* perfect, but for some reason no matter where I paste the shortcode, the form shows up at the top of the page. Is there any way I can change that? I won’t be able to use it if I can’t put it in a specific spot on the page. Thanks!

    • admin/ 20.03.2017Antworten

      Hi there,
      this is fixed as of version 1.1.5. Enjoy!

  • Waqar/ 17.03.2017Antworten

    Dear admin!
    Thank you for a great plugin. I am simply in love with it. But I am having some issues in styling.
    1. Progress bar is always in vertical position which I want in horizental setting.
    2. When selecting an option from radio button, it doesn’t seem to select ant option though it send that option in mail so our users seems to be confused while this option is selected or not.
    3. While I add 4th step, it add an icon instead of number. Can we have a consistancy like having numbers in all steps or having icons??
    Waiting for your kind response. Keep doing great work.

    • admin/ 20.03.2017Antworten

      Hello and thanks for using and enjoying our plugin!
      For question 1 and 2, you seem to be having issues with our stylesheets being overwritten by a third party plugin or theme. If you’re familiar with CSS, you can try to inspect the CSS rules to find conflicts and correct these. Which theme are you using?
      Regarding the third question: Yes, we will give you the option to change the flag icon to a number in a future version.
      Cheers, Mondula

    Hi there. A couple of things:

    1. Can anything be done about the field layout? eg. If we want First and Last Name next to each other(2 columns)…
    2. Is there a way of duplicating Sections / Fields? I know you can duplicate Steps.

    Thanks and Kind regards,

  • Santiago/ 27.04.2017Antworten

    Hi, I’m having two issues with the plug in.
    1- When the form is completed, I’m not receiving all the data by email but just some of the fields.
    2- The icons are not showing well. Can I erase them?
    Thank you. Please help me.

      Hi ,

      as we are currently developing a PRO version for Multi Step Form,
      we do not have the resources to handle individual requests right now.

      Best wishes,
      Mondula

  • Barton/ 29.04.2017Antworten

    Looks fantastic and you’ve put a lot of work into getting the Plugin to look superb.

    Is is possible to have conditional options, so the next panel / step cold be skipped based on the selection in the current panel?

    For example, if we sell a door, the first panel would say „Do you need a handle“, if they select yes, displays Step 2, if no handle required, move to Step 3 and select a letter box etc…

    Or could this functionality be achieved through using FORM Elements on the individual panel?

    Thank you and great work,

    Barton.

    really great plugin.
    How can I send the email automatically to the user email? In the form setting „Email address to which the mails are sent“.

    Thank you

      Hi,
      not now,
      in the Pro Plugin (late summer 2017) or maybe in one of the following free versions we might integrate a USER Mail.

      thx for using Multi Step Forms

    • admin/ 03.05.2017Antworten

      Hi,
      thx for your comment.
      This might be a problem with your WP installation.
      Disable all Plugins except the MSF, switch to a plain WP-Template and try again.
      If you get admin mailings the plugin will send mails too.

      I hpe that helps.

      best

  • raj/ 05.05.2017Antworten

    Hi,

    why Email Function is Not Working

    • admin/ 05.05.2017Antworten

      Hi,
      if you want us to take that serious we need more information to help you out.
      The PlugIn ist tested with a lot of configurations.
      With a fresh wordpress wich is able to send administrative mails (like e.g. User Notifications) the form will send mails.
      It’s a good workaround to check first if your WP is working correctly.

  • Marc/ 16.05.2017Antworten

    Hello,
    I translate the files (po) to Dutch. Where do I have to place the translation files in my installation? Other question: is it possible to „multi“ upload files?

    • admin/ 17.05.2017Antworten

      Hi,
      you can modify the .po files. Afterwords you have to create a .pot (https://wordpress.org/plugins/poeditor/). After saving your file upload it to the /lang-Folder and replace the .pot-File.

      At the moment there is no possibility for a multi-file-upload ;-(

  • Daniel/ 20.05.2017Antworten

    Hallo,
    habe eine kleine Frage zu eurem wirklich sehr gelungenen Plugin:
    Mich verwirrt die „Select/Dropdown“ funktion. Da dies nur eine Dopdown-Funktion ist und mir keine möglichkeit gibt eines Multiple-Select feldes. Oder bin ich einfach nur verwirrt und übersehe das die ganze Zeit?
    Perfekt wäre es, wenn es die PRO Version schon geben würde, da ich sie bis Mittwoch benötigen würde 🙂

    Danke trotzdem

    Hi,

    How do I change the color of the text? Your example shows black text, but mine shows up as white text. Thank you!

    • admin/ 12.06.2017Antworten

      Hi,

      The color of the text probably depends on the theme you’re using and not on the plugin. You can try deactivating your current theme for a short moment to check if that is the problem.

      best regards – Mondula

  • Dimitris/ 19.07.2017Antworten

    Hi, great work on the plugin. Just have one question to which I can’t find the answer anywhere.

    Is it possible to change the value of the Submit button to something else other than „Submit“? Same for the other buttons, next step etc.

    Thank you!

  • admin/ 19.07.2017Antworten

    Hello Dimirtis,

    sorry there is no possibility to change the wording of the submit button at the moment.
    Maybe we can fix this issue with on of our next plugin updates.

    Regards your Mondula Team

    • Dimitris/ 19.07.2017Antworten

      Hi, thanks for the quick reply. I tried changing the word „Submit“ in the php file inside lib folder but that didn’t work unfortunately :/ But thanks again, look forward to your new updates!

  • hydz/ 19.07.2017Antworten

    Hi, I just want to ask if it is possible to redirect url after submitting? Sorry, I didnt find the settings in my wp-admin side for the plugin, hope you can help me. Thank you.

  • Dimitris/ 20.07.2017Antworten

    Hi, I don’t know if that has been answered somewhere, I can’t find with i quick search, but, is it possible for different forms to have different classes? So the same element in different forms can be styled in a different way by using that form’s specific class.

  • admin/ 24.07.2017Antworten

    Hello Dimitris,

    in the WordPress backend of our plugin there is no oppourtunity to set classes to the forms.
    I would suggest u to put wrappers around each form an set the classes there to achieve your different stylings.

    Regards your Mondula Team

    • Dimitris/ 31.07.2017Antworten

      Hi, thanks for coming back. Yes, that was the approach I took. However every time I go in to change something it seems that it „forgets“ the styling of other elements or any kind of customisation and I have to do it again :/ nothing major and certainly not a deal breaker, just thought I’d let you know 🙂

      • admin/ 31.07.2017Antworten

        thx a lot, we will check and include a bugfix to the next update of the free

  • Mike Burton/ 24.07.2017Antworten

    This Plugin is definitely one of the best on the market!
    Unbelievable that it is for free! Thank you for this!

    It would be incredible if you maybe can work on an extra feature.
    We need a functionality to split the steps and place them on different pages.

    So for ex. you have 1 form with 3 steps.
    Normally you have 1 shortcode.
    If you can try to make it splittable that you will have the power to have 3 shortcodes that would be amazing.

    So you can place for ex. :
    Shortcode for step 1 on http://www.example.com/explaining-flowers/
    Shortcode for step 2 on http://www.example.com/explaining-trees/
    Shortcode for step 2 on http://www.example.com/explaining-greens/

    The reason why is simple.
    On this way, you can increase the engagement on the website (page views/ad views) to the maximum.
    For any kind of webmaster this will be the number 1 plugin in the world if you have a function like this.

    • admin/ 25.07.2017Antworten

      Dear Mike,
      thx for your comment (a rating like this on wordpress.org might help to spread the word ;-)).
      We can extend the functionality.
      At the end of September this year we will release the ProVersion for the Plugin and this might be an interesting feature for the first Pro or one of the upcoming extensions.
      If you want this first and/or exclusive we can send an offer. We charge from 50,- to 70,- per h for individual improvements.

      let me know if you are interested

    Hi,

    my goal is to persist the received form data in a local database before sending the data out via email.
    is it possible to edit the action script that receives the form data in order to do this?

    Thanks

    • admin/ 15.08.2017Antworten

      Hi Wassim,

      it is not possible to edit the action script from the backend. But since it’s a free and open plugin, you could try to edit it yourself and not from the backend.

    Can you please add a feature to be able to have more then one object per line?! This is something that should be easy to do in the builder. For the current features the builder works amazing. Also i would love a way to customize the email to pull values of the form and create custom subjects/email body contents. But right now I would really love to have more then one field per line of the form ! Moving up and down with the drag and drop works great just cant put anything on the sides of each object : (

      You will be able to have more than one object per line soon with our pro version which will come out in a couple of days.

  • Support/ 06.10.2017Antworten

    Hi Mondula Team,

    Thank you for a great plugin.We used it on our project but unfortunately, we are facing some issues :

    1. When tabs are used for multiple forms and if any of the forms have required fields then the system checks all forms irrespective of tab isolation as a single form.I have added the page link for your reference:

    Link:- http://axonsg.com/procosecasia/incorporationofyourcompanyinsingapore/

    For example: In this page, you can see three tabs and three different forms. If we fill up the Self service step 1 and Classic has required fields which is the another tab then it will need to be filled in order to proceed to the next step.

    If the forms were on different pages, its working well but if they are on the same page the code thinks that they all belong together.

    2. Is there a way to set an autoresponder mail to the form registrants ( something similar to contact form 7: mail 2 option)

    We would appreciate it if you check and advise.

    Thanks in advance

    • admin/ 06.10.2017Antworten

      Hi there!

      Thank you for using our plugin!

      1. got it. We will take a look at it and maybe fix it with future updates. Since we’re working on our pro version right now, we don’t have time for individual requests. But for now you could solve this with multiple pages.
      2. This feature will be available with our pro version or with future updates. Stay tuned!

    Liebes Mondula Team,
    wir sind super happy mit eurem Formular! Jedoch gibt es einen Aspekt, den wir noch nicht eigenständig klären konnten. Werden Bilder in dem Formular angehängt, kommen diese nicht immer in unserem Email Postfach an. Häufig, werden sie in der Mail garnicht angezeigt und sind somit verloren. Ist diesbezüglich etwas bekannt, oder habt ihr einen Lösungsvorschlag für uns?

    LG

    • admin/ 23.11.2017Antworten

      Moin Niclas,
      bisher hatten wir noch keine Probleme mit dem Fileupload. Heute haben wir ein Update auf Version 1.2.3 released, welches den Upload mehrerer Files in einem Upload-Input erlaubt. Bitte zieh dir mal das neue Update und berichte dann, ob alles ordnungsgemäß funktioniert.
      Beste Grüße
