The support and thought that went into this plug-in is amazing.

BuddyForms ROCKS!!!

BuddyForms has been perfect for my needs. Also, I wanted to add some custom hooks and filters so I emailed Sven for support. His help was quick and spot on. If you're looking for a forms plug in, especially one with BuddyPress support, look no further.


Excellent site: creative idea, opportunity knocks

Great site with superb content, this creative site showcases both the designer and the designed magnificently – WordPress is a great asset to all internet users who want to make a difference and project their ideas on a global scale.


Great plugin and support

I’m working with this plugin over 1 year in combination with Ultimate Member and it really fills all the gaps. Visitors can submit info trough forms in their UM-private pages (linked with Custom Post Types) and administrator can create list with these data; really helpful and time-saving. Recently we had a problem with submissions that didn’t came through; and the plugin-author fixed this bug fast en professional. Great product and support!


User Generated Content Made Easy

This plugin allows a high level of interaction between website and users. It is ideal for implementing user generated content concepts. The plugin is very well designed and allows settings that focus on the practical use. With useful extensions the field of application can be extended. And it works really well! Due to these positive experiences with the free version, I will upgrade to the premium version.


BuddyForms solves a great problem in the BuddyPress world

BuddyForms solves a great problem in the BuddyPress world, to allow users to post any type of content from the front-end. Easy to use and extremely useful.

Michael Eisenwasser

Great Support from Sven

When i started my website, i looked for a plug in that did what buddyforms does, there was none. When i discovered this plug in i immediately gave it a shot, and it did what i always wanted to do with my website, the integration with buddypress is seamless. I would recommend it 100% + the support i've gotten from Sven is second to none.

Jose Martinez

Great Plugin

I am pleasantly surprised with all options and possibilities that you have with BuddyForms. What I like the most is smooth integration with Ultimate Member.

Miodrag Rasic

good service

I had a problem with the mail notification and send a mail to the service adress.
Within two days someone contacted me and the problem was solved.
Thanks for this nice, free wordpress plugin.


Great Plug-in

This plug-in is just what I needed to have my users add Post content on the front end. It also allows those posts to be edited and deleted from the Buddypress profile. Sven is very responsive to questions. Excellent support!


Great Plugin

Very useful plugin with a lot of features

salvador sandoval sanchez

This is the best plugin.

I'm looking for plugins that are compatible with ACF | Advanced Custom Fields. This is the best plugin.


Super Useful!

I looked at several different front end form plugins before deciding on this one. Many of them were over-engineered for my tastes with too many options. This has all of the features I need, with the ability customize when needed but most importantly l there is an add-on to use to use Advanced Custom Fields in the form. That feature makes it so worth it. What I thought was going to be a huge project was way simplified with BuddyForms.

Patty O'Hara

extremely helpful and useful plugin

Thank your for this extremely useful plugin that helps building registration forms with custom fields. What I really like is the option to include xprofile fields. Thanks for all your work making this plugin available!


Awesome Form Builder

Great plug-in, love the easy setup guys! Will definitely be using this for all my forms in the future!


Well designed, unique, powerful

This is a premature review, but I am very impressed. First impression after just a few minutes…amazing plugin! Along with other free plugins to extension it. The scope is broad, I have a lot to explore. Amazing that it is free. It’s stable and well designed, well documented. I will update this review after I’ve used it for awhile.

Thanks for a great pro level and free plugin!


Best Plugin for User generated content

I’ve worked with a client on a electric-cars marketplace. BuddyForms helped a lot to make it super easy for website users to upload their cars on our platform. It was kind of the best solution, actually.



Extremely useful and I wish I found it earlier

I truly wish I found this earlier. I've tried a lot of other plugins/solutions to do what this does and nothing compares. It's great, and the developer and support are very on top of things. A+ stuff

Joanna Pantages

Great for User Submitted Content

I’m creating a site that required users to be able to submit and edit articles to be published. I explored many solutions, and BuddyForms proved to be the easiest I could find, for both myself and my users. It’s definitely the best value out of any purchase I’ve made for my site. The excellent support from ThemeKraft was a huge selling point for me. Most of my sites success wouldn’t be possible without BuddyForms and I would urge anyone who needs user generated content on their WordPress site to check it out.
