Improvements on Conversational Forms
Conversational Forms is the most exciting feature in Fluent Forms and it’s a unique feature that no other forms plugin offer this type of form. After the 4.0 release with Conversational Forms, We see lots of users who were using TypeForm, they are moving to Fluent Forms as Fluent Forms does not have any restrictions and it’s self hosted.
After seeing so many excitement and positive feedback, We have improved a lot, I mean a lot! We built Conversational Forms with VueJS 2.0 and in this update, We have upgraded that to VueJS 3.0 which is faster and give us more API to work with. In conversational forms, we have improved the following things
- Migration to VueJS v3 to V2
- Disable Auto Form Submit Trigger For checkable items
- Multi-Select Component improvements
- Better Transition Animation
- Ability to disable the scroll to the next question
- Internal architectural improvements
Meta Box Plugin integration
As you already know, Fluent Forms offer an in-depth integration with Post or any Custom post type. You can create a post or CPT from a form submission and you can map data from Fluent Forms Fields to Post object and meta. We have great integration with ACF and in this update, we have added a similar integration with Meta Box Plugin. We have used the internal API of Meta Box so it will be compatible with their other add-ons like a separate database system. We are super excited about this integration as lots of users are using the Meta Box plugin.
Sharable Landing Page
We have revamped the landing page feature. Now, You can do lots of customization for the Landing Page design and how it will look. We also added a classic Design Style so it will blend with your site design as well as it will create more focus on form.
But wait, We have bigger news on this. Now, You can embed your form anywhere you want, Even in another WordPress site or outside the WordPress world like WIX, Shopify, BlogSpot, Square Space, or in an HTML website.
Introducing reCAPTCHA v3
Our users were waiting for this features for a long time and finally, We delivered this. Now, You can choose if you want to use Visible ReCaptcha v2 or invisible ReCaptcha V3. With V3, It will give the same type spam protection like V3 but users don’t have to solve the boring captcha puzzle.
