Here are just a few of the things you will find in Ninja Forms:

  • Custom input masks allow you to restrict user input in your forms for things like phone numbers, currency, and dates.
  • Manage, Edit, and Export form user submissions.
  • Save fields as favorites and re-use them in multiple forms.
  • Export and Import forms and favorite fields.
  • Set required fields.
  • Add a datepicker to text fields.
  • Email form results to any number of pre-determined email addresses, as well as specific messages to the user filling out the form.
  • Customize form emails with the WordPress editor.
  • Anti-Spam field.
  • Extremely developer friendly.
  • Submit your form by reloading the page or asynchronously with AJAX.
  • Please note that if you are using a version of PHP lower than 5.3, you may experience some problems using AJAX Submissions. These can be minimized by using simple success/error messages without any quotes or special characters.
