BuddyForms 2.5 Out Now

by | Jul 9, 2019 | Uncategorized

BuddyForms Version 2.5 comes with some huge improvements and new features. In this blog post, I like to highlight the changes and give you a preview of the new features and functionality.

We improved the UI of the Form Builder and make creating a new form easier. You can choose now from pre-defined form templates or create your own all from one place.

Change the Form Slug

From now on it is possible to change the form slug. This was often asked in the support and we finally make it possible to change the form slug for existing forms!

We have added a new Price field

We have added a general price field you can use to collect any kind of currency in your forms. We have added some great options to define the form element to your needs and currency see the gif to see it in action!

Reduced and optimized the Database

We have removed the WP Session and cleaned up the way we store form options in the database to give you the most up-to-date data flow. If you are serious about your DB and Form speed you will love the new system. We have set up all for the future and make BuddyForms work with the most modern techniques of PHP and WP to give you the best and cleanest and fastest forms possible.

And many more optimizations

We improved the error handling and validation and put a lot of passion into the core of BuddyForms. We rewrite some parts and take the time to optimize all parts of the core. Please look into the changelog for more details and see all the changes from version 2.5 listed below.
