The most remarkable plug-in I have ever used. Unbelievable as to the functions you can perform, knowing next to no html, php or any other technical stuff... Hats off to you for this masterful tool. Your plugin has been a dream to me and was the critical piece I was missing in building a directory.
It's a natural for building staff directories, resource libraries, and similar applications that collect and display data on a site. It is also a very strong tool for building front-end data collection forms requiring conditional workflows, calculations and other advanced features.
If you want to build any type of directory listings website, you should use Formidable Forms. For example, many users think building a business directory requires a specific WordPress business listings plugin - not true. Formidable has the flexibility needed to build anything you set your mind to.
If you have a self-hosted WordPress website, you are good to go. If you are a professional developer, you can install Formidable Forms on your client's WordPress sites too. For the time being, our plugin does not work on non-WordPress sites.
Once the Formidable plugin is installed and activated, you're off! Our drag-and-drop form builder makes it so you don't have to code a thing if you don't want to.
100% no! With zero coding skills, you can still create powerful websites using Formidable. We built our plugin to be equally useful for those with and without coding ability. However, if you would like to customize the layouts of your directory pages, some coding skills will come in handy.
The main components of an online directory vary, but they usually include two core pieces. First, a series of online web forms to collect directory submissions. Second, a method for converting submission data into web pages.
This is where we've got you covered! Formidable Forms can easily handle both aspects of building a directory site using WordPress. And all with minimal effort on your part.
Creating a business directory in WordPress is no different than creating any type of directory or listings site. Collect data in the form of business listing submissions and automate the creation of business listing pages. Formidable Forms can be used to create any type of directory website.
If you can create the pages needed to build a directory website, then you are set! It's an ambitious goal, but there are thousands of profitable directory style websites online today. If you are building one using WordPress, you can choose a directory plugin or a directory theme.
Depending on what your goals are, either one could work well. Having said that, we feel confident that Formidable Forms offers the flexibility to power a wide range of directory websites.
No, you don't! If you want to create an online business directory website (or any directory site), Formidable Forms will work for you. Our flexible all-in-one plugin to function with any WordPress theme.
What's more, Formidable can be used to do everything a directory theme does too. Photo uploads, adjustable banners, submission forms, real-time updates, and beyond.
There are a number of industry-specific WordPress directory plugins available today. The fact is that some of them do what others cannot, which makes it hard to get exactly what you want.
A better question may be "What can Formidable do that a WordPress store directory plugin cannot?"
That answer is easy. Everything else! A WordPress store directory plugin is limited to doing one thing, while Formidable can do it all. Build conversational forms, track data and turn it into graphs, create landing pages, secure and send gated content, and yes, build a directory plugin!
But why decide before trying out the competition?
We encourage you to test a range of plugins before making the important decision. And we are so confident our plugin will blow the others out of the water, we happily offer a 14-day free trial so you can try before committing!
With Formidable, there are built-in user registration features to streamline the creation of a company directory. You can easily generate user profiles or a profile page based on a registration form.
You can also allow employees to edit their information from the frontend or the backend of your WordPress site. If you run a large business with a lot of employees, you can install a profile search bar as well.
An employee directory plugin is designed to do one thing: create an employee directory. Can Formidable Forms be used to create an employee directory? Absolutely - though it can do so much more than just that!
If you are building a membership directory, there is no reason why you couldn't use Formidable Forms. Membership plugins are focused specifically on membership features. Formidable is a flexible plugin that can create virtually any web application you can dream up.
