Demo Installation Video

NOTE: The plugin uses PDFTK to fill in PDF files. This means that your server has to have PHP shell commands enabled. If your server does not have pdftk installed, you can still use the plugin to generate 1 PDF file for 1 Formidable form.

If you purchase the plugin using our website, you do not need to install pdftk or to enable shell commands on your server. You’ll use our API according to the Terms of Service.

Enter the activation code on the plugin options page.

FAQ

What are the requirements?

Formidable Forms plugin, make sure that your server can execute shell commands, and that pdftk is installed on your server.

You’ll also need to have PHP MB or iconv extensions installed. They are usually installed on web servers.

If you purchase the plugin, no additional software installation is need.

PHP version should be at least 5.3.

Does the plugin create PDF files?

Not at this time. Currently the plugin populates pre-made PDF form fields with mapped data from Formidable Form and FormidablePro form fields.

Future plans include adding HTML to PDF capabilities.

Is support offered for the free version?

Yes – standard user support is available through the support forum or purchase a key code for premium level support.

Does the plugin work with multisite installations?

Yes, the plugin works with WordPress Multisite. Site limits still apply.

Rezensionen

absolute worst

This is the worst plugin. I have watched the demo. I have created the pdf. Now all i have to get it to the website. It has been a complete nightmare It is very unclear where the support form. I have spent 3 days trying to get my contract and a signature in my webpage. I have paid for this service and feel entirely frustrated.

It’s a never ending circle

I don’t understand where all the 5 stars are coming from.
This product is difficult to configure and use. I watched the demo videos, read the documentation for the PRO version, which we purchased.
In trying to import the PDF file from Adobe acrobat DC, the import fails, but does not provide a specific reason for the failure. We tried even a form with only one field import with no success.
The support website’s menus circle back on themselves with no detail on items being searched for.
The product has potential because it works with Formidable Pro, which is an excellent product. I now have 5 hours invested in getting the first form to work and no success.

I am revising my review because for $5.00 they fixed all the issues I was having with the product. I would have paid $50.00 for that level of service.
Their website still needs some work or a „heads-up“ notice that it’s much easier to pay to have the forms created for you.

No dataset to export

Purchased the Pro version, spent a lot of time creating a form in wordpress using Formidable and a PDF using Adobe Acrobat Pro, and there isn’t any dataset to export. Can’t match form data to pdf without data to export. Very disappointed with the poor documentation!

Although the form and PDF are nearly identical there are some fields that do not match with uploaded pdf.

I submitted an email for support.

This is a quality plugin with exceptional support

We have been using this plugin for a couple of years now. We have had two issues in the time span and in both cases the support was exceptional. There is a fast response on the forums and the developer even gave us his Skype info so we could make immediate contact if necessary. You don’t see that very often. The plugin works well with even the most complicated of forms. I would highly recommend this solution.

Super Cool

Make best form plugin Formidable even better!
I can automate any document filling task!

The Best Plugin support hands down

These guys have the best support ever! We had really complicated issue with our VPS server timing out (mod_fcgid timeout) . Guess what? FormidablePRO2pdf developers solved it. They are competent in really advance level support! If you have any issues, they will fix it! Bravo guys!
