I am happy to announce the first beta version of the new FormCraft – almost a month ahead of schedule. If you had signed up for beta access, you would have received an email by now.
If you didn’t signup, but would like to use the beta anyways, shoot me an email – nish at ncrafts dot net.
You will be able to install future update for new FormCraft and all its add-ons from your WordPress dashboard. No need to download and overwrite the files each time we come up with a new release.
Support For Add-Ons
You can extend the functionality of FormCraft with add-ons. You would be able to install, and configure all your add-ons on the form builder page itself. We are committed to making FormCraft a one-page app:
MailChimp and Campaign Monitor add-ons are available for download, free-of-cost. We will be launching the rest of the bundle soon 🙂
With your old FormCraft, you would use this shortcode to embed the forms:
With the new plugin, the shortcode would be:
Please make the change on all the pages.
Dedicated Form Page
With the old FormCraft, the dedicated form page would be something like:
This has been simplified to:
Please update your links!
For now, the old FormCraft, and the new one would co-exist. You would be able to access and edit both from your WordPress dashboard. All the forms in your old FormCraft will be automatically imported to the one:
These forms aren’t available for use right away. You need to edit each of these forms, and click on Save. You would also have to re-configure some of the settings and options.
I wrote a post last month asking people for their opinion on whether or not to charge for the new plugin. I have decided to keep the main plugin free for existing customers. Add-Ons, like Stripe, Multi-Page Forms, User Registration, etc .. will be available as paid add-ons.
I can’t stress enough on the importance of your feedback. You can reach me directly at nish at ncrafts dot net for any feedback / bugs. You can also post a comment below.
