This block is available for Premium and Pro version websites.

A great flexibility

Thanks to this block, it’s now possible for you to make flexible your forms putting the different fields you need. This block allows to create precise and targeted forms without unnecessary information.

For instance, if you have created a website for your restaurant or for a bed and breakfast it will now be possible for you to create an online booking form. If you have created a website for your hand-crafted or freelance activity, you will be able to add an online request for an estimate form. Of course, if you want to create a simple form to obtain feedbacks or questions from your visitors, it is also possible.
To help you, we can also offer you different predefined templates: such as simple or more developed contact forms, feedback forms, or even better booking forms.

Styles for everyone’s taste

You can give the style you want to your forms, with simple and quick predefined settings. For example, it is also possible for you to choose the form, the line and the general style of your forms.   

In the Design panel of your form, you can modify different styles in order to make it unique.

Position

The labels position allows to quickly modify the structure of your form.

  • Compressed style: as the name of the labels is situated in the input field (it disappears when we enter text), the form takes up less space   
  • Aligned style: the name of the labels is situated just before the input field for a stylish style
  • Basic style: the name of the labels is situated just above the input fields for a clear and legible look.   

Alignment

Form texts alignment (label and fields) can also be chosen: left, right and centered.

Handy features

Predefined forms

Autocomplete

Once created, forms can offer auto-completion (according to added fields).

If the visitor of your website already has his confidential information saved in his browser, the browser will pre-fill the form.   

Dates

Dates management is also simple and efficient. You will have the choice between displaying a calendar in the form or displaying a date field that will be able to open a small calendar if necessary.

To better fit your needs, dates fields can also be set up to take a date, a time or a date and a time.

Files sending

It is now possible for you to offer files sending to your visitors directly on your form. You can choose the type of files you accept (audio, video, documents, photos…). Useful for you to send supporting or other documents!
Struggle against spam

The form block also allows to avoid spam, using reCaptcha Google service, that can distinguish in an automated way a human user from a computer.

Data control

During mail sending each field is checked in order to avoid as much as possible to have mistaken information. If the value doesn’t match the expected field, the form isn’t sent and the user is informed about the fields he needs to correct.

Customization of the validation     

You have the possibility to customize the displayed message on your website when the form is entered. To this end, in the properties, click on the button Validation message then click on the text to customize in the form.

 

Thus the Form block gives an infinite number of possible customizations, that will cover all your present and future needs. Update your website!
