FormBuilder 0.89 Released

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

We have officially released FormBuilder 0.89 on This edition contains a number of updates and fixes to make it even more user-friendly. Things we’ve improved include the following:

~variable~ Fields In Your ThankYou Text
Basically, this means you can add a more personal touch to the “Thank You” text that you show your visitors when they fill out the form. You could also show them a recap of what they submitted for their own records. Read this for more on how to use ~variable~ fields.

Option to show all fields in autoresponder.
We have added a new ~FullForm~ field to the ~variable~ options which will include the entire form that was submitted.

Allow admin bar to show all forms on the current page/index.
One of the coolest features of the new version is the updated “Edit Form” dropdown. It now appears right next to the “Edit Page” field, and should now contain links to any of the forms listed on the page. Also, if you’re on something like a category or tag index, it’ll have any/all forms listed in all the articles on the page.

Thesis theme compatibility bug.
One of the bugs that has plagued us for a while now is that some specific themes (like Thesis) would not show the form submission results properly. This has been fixed in this release.

Various other bug fixes.
There were a number of other bug fixes made to the code as well which should make the overall experience just that much more pleasent.

We really hope you enjoy the improvements. As always, you can download the latest release from If you have questions, take a look at our Documentation and FAQ. If you find bugs, you can report them on GetSatisfaction.

FormBuilder 0.83 Released

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

Over the past number of months, we have been making minor tweaks to the FormBuilder codebase as features, bugs and tweaks were pointed out by our friendly FormBuilder community.  Until now, these tweaks stayed with the development version of FormBuilder as they had not been very thoroughly tested, and were not major changes.

This release wraps up all those tweaks into a single new release.  Since 0.82 we have made the following changes:

= 0.83  =
* Alphabetization of forms in list of forms on site.
* Release update wrapping up all previously developed functionality.

= 0.825 (unstable) =
