About Forminator

Forminator is not the typical Form plugin, because it is part of a larger ecosystem maintained by WPMU DEV. They build some well known plugins like Defender, Smush and Humming Bird, and their free versions already have an amazing feature list. Once you subscribe to their membership, you will get access to the PRO versions of ALL their plugins. But if you come for a contact form only, with Forminator you get every feature (except the Digital Signature) in the free version already. So let’s see what they offer..   

Forminator’s drag and drop visual builder makes it easy to setup and add forms to your WordPress website. Collect information, make your content interactive and generate more conversions with Forminator.

Some highlights that deserve special mention:

  • Polls and Quizzes – Add interactive polls and fun or challenging quizzes for your visitors to take and share on social media.
  • Calculations – Collect information, generate leads, take orders, and engage visitors.
  • Payments – SCA compliant Stripe and PayPal come included (no upgrade required).
  • Email routing and pre-populate – Pre-fill your visitor information and deliver forms direct to specific teams with email routing, auto-response and conditions.
  • Integrations – Forminator comes stacked third-party integrations – email services, CRM, storage, and project managers. 
  • Developer friendly – Use the developer API and the included hooks and filters to build your own integrations or custom apps 

In this Forminator review, we will show all the features we track. Please note that there may be more features in their repertoire, but we had to limit ourselves to those which appear in more than one plugin, or have a substantial value for the average user, which can be the case for some innovative and unique feature.

Of course, we’re always open for your suggestion!

Further, we are curating a hand-picked list of video tutorials and in-depth reviews which we found for this plugin. Again, please send us a message if you believe we missed out on a valuable resource. Maybe one you just wrote? I’d love to hear from you!

Forminator: Tutorials and video reviews

To help you in your quest, we have featured some tutorial videos below so you get a hands-on impression of how the plugin looks in the backend, and what is needed to solve common tasks, such as building a contact form or adding calculations, etc. Please advise in the comments if you think we missed a good one!

Forminator Pricing – What is the true price?

As pointed out above, you don’t need the paid version if you only came for a contact form solution. Unless you need the Digital Signature feature, you can use this plugin on as many sites as you want, forever. It’s only a question if the plugin has the features you want or not, and if you like their user interface.
