A Gator Forms user asked us an interesting question. They wanted to know if it was possible to create a UserVoice-style feedback tab on their site.
UserVoice is a very popular way of collecting feedback from customers. They are famous for their orange “Feedback” tab that appears on many sites.
One Gator Forms user asked us they could show a Gator Form inside a pulldown tab at the top of their WordPress site.
They needed a pulldown button that looked like this image below. If you click on the “Quick Apply” link, a form slides down.
The Toggler Tab is one of the coolest ways to display your Gator Foms.
This is the perfect way to make your form always visible for users of your site. The Toggler Tab can be an always-on button with “Contact Us” in clear view, no matter which page your visitor is on.
You can now download version 2.5.0 of Gator Forms
This version has a very useful feature that has been missing from Gator Forms before now. You can save all the messages that people send you.
This feature is available both to Gator Forms Free and Gator Forms Pro users.
Often, the most important information in a form submission is the email address of the user who’s trying to contact you through the form on your site.
It’s a good practice to include an email confirmation field in the form. By typing the email address twice, the users minimize the risk of providing a wrong email address.
If both email addresses differ from each other, the email confirmation field will get a red border, that way the user is aware of the problem.
In this tutorial, we’re going to add an email confirmation field to the form we created in this tutorial.
It’s easy to customize the look and feel of your Gator Forms, even if you have the free version of the plugin, with some CSS code.
In this tutorial, we’re going to take a look at the CSS file for the Free version of the form included with the plugin. Please take the form of this tutorial as an example.
The Gator Forms plugin allows you to embed forms of all types in your WordPress site.
It has a lot of configuration options to build and display highly customizable forms and a great variety of styles to adapt each form to the look of your website.
In this tutorial, we’re going to cover the installation and basic usage of this plugin.
