As you may know, I have been a big fan of the Formidable Pro WordPress form plugin for a while, and I wanted to showcase some of it’s impressive benefits and justify why I think this WordPress form plugin is worth paying for. First let me tell you a little about Formidable Pro and what it can do.
Formidable Pro WordPress Form Plugin
This form plugin for WordPress goes above and beyond traditional form plugins in that you have not only the flexibility to add a plethora of form fields, advanced options but also it allows updates/editing of existing form submissions, keeps all forms stored in the database so you can pull reports and CSV file exports of all previous form submissions, as well as build graphical reports with analytics from your forms.
Formidable Pro has you covered and can be used for contact me forms, guest blogging forms, sign up forms (Mail Chimp Integration, Aweber Integration, Highrise CMS integration), WordPress Registration Forms, Purchase Forms (you can link Formidable Pro submission to Paypal where it sends user for payment), Quote Request forms, real estate listing forms, forms with signature using the signature add-on so that someone can draw a signature with mouse or trackpad and more.
Formidable Pro tracks Paypal payments and even records the Paypal transaction ID and stores it in the form for you.
With Formidable Pro you get to track your form submissions and you never lose track of them.
That is only the basics of Formidable Pro, virtually any type of form you want you can create with Formidable Pro, but wait you can also use Formidable Pro to create WordPress posts from form submissions, this means you can use Formidable pro to automate guest posting on your blog as well as allow for directory or event type submissions.
Buy Formidable Pro now if you haven’t yet, because once you do you then can use the Formidable Pro Templates that I have created for you. You can download these templates and use one or all of them to help get you instantly setup with forms that may fit your needs.
How to install Formidable Pro Templates
You do need to use either FTP or your web hosts File Manager, you will want to navigate to your blog install and into your wp-content/uploads folder. Create a new folder called templates.
Then in Formidable Pro, click on Formidable > Global Settings
Go to the very bottom where you will see the Path to Extra Templates
Make sure you cut/paste the recommended path under this section and just change out everything after the /wp-content/ to use /wp-content/uploads/templates. Then click Update Options.
Now, when you download the template files below, unzip them and upload the .php file by using FTP or File Manager to upload the template to your folder above, then click on the Update Imported Templates Now link in the bottom of the Formidable > Global Settings, this tells Formidable Pro to re-read the directory and import the templates.
Now the templates will show up in your templates section and you can just click on New Form from Template, or you will see the template in the drop down when you select new form.
Here are the Forms Included in the Formidable Pro Template Pack (Download each template individually or full template download link at end of article)
Formidable Pro Guest Blogger Form Template
This template comes with the collection of first and last name, email, website and includes verbiage around submission quality, word count and also allows the form submitter to upload a guest post attachment so you can quickly review and either approve or reject the guest post. It also includes default verbiage about an editing charge to the submitter if you need to do edits and cover your cost of editing. You can feel free to modify any fields or description parts. There is Captcha protection and this only works if you setup the Captcha component of Formidable Pro or the Captcha won’t show up.

This List Your Giveaway Formidable Pro form is very specific for giveaway bloggers who want to give people the option to list their giveaways or sweepstakes. They fill out their basic contact information but also include details about their giveaway including the platform, prize, value, URL of the giveaway and an image for the prize. Even better, all of this information is collected and a draft WordPress post is created in addition to an email being sent to you. This draft post has all of the information carefully presented so all you have to do is look at the Draft post, review it and publish it.

This form comes with fields for the sponsor to fill out Twitter, Facebook, YouTube or Pinterest accounts that they may want to promote as well as additional information. I do not have any hooks into Paypal with set dollar amounts, but you can easily add a drop down field with price amount and hook those into Paypal if you want to automate payment collection as well.
