For a long time there has not been a WordPress plugin that supports Multi-Page forms. In fact, in 2009 I had a huge need for this solution and was unable to locate a plugin to fill my need, so I created a solution for myself.
But there is better way!
Just the other day, I was on Twitter and saw a tweet from Cory Miller [@corymiller303] which mentioned that Gravity Forms (affilink) newest release was going to feature the Multi-Page Form capability!
I first stumbled upon Gravity Forms in 2009 when I was searching for a solution to may previously mentioned problem. At the time they did not have a solution for me, but I have since noticed Gravity Forms being talked about by tons of people. So I looked into it again and discovered that Gravity Forms is such an awesome plugin, and provides a great solution for creating and using forms on your WordPress site. And this new Multi-Page feature takes this plugin over the top for me!
I snagged this little excerpt from their blog discussing the release of version 1.5:
One of the most widely requested features is finally here, multi-page form capabilities. Using the new Page Break field you now have the ability split longer forms into multiple pages or steps. We have also integrated a visual paging status bar that can be used to show a progress bar or the steps involved in completing the form.
This new Multi-Page feature that Gravity Forms has added will really offer a huge advantage to anyone that needs to add these types of forms to their WordPress site!
What user level was this plugin created for?
ALL! Gravity Forms is a plugin that is easy to use no matter what level of experience you have. The beginner can easily create and manage forms, and the developer/programmer can use Gravity Forms to eliminate a lot of the work involved in creating forms. This plugin offers the basic features, but it houses a ton of power-house features to make it with using!
This video will take you on a tour of the Gravity Forms plugin:
What you need to know
Gravity Forms is not free!
I almost always try to find a plugin that is free when I promote something new that is as awesome as this new feature, but there still is no free plugin that provides this capability! Not one that I have found anyway…Do you know of one? Please share the link to the FREE plugin in the comments!
So because I could not find a free solution for this problem and because the tutorial I wrote several years ago is somewhat complex and people don’t really like it as an option, I decided to hunt down a promo code to make Gravity Forms more affordable! The promo code I found will get you 25% off at Gravity Forms.
