10 Best PHP Form Generator available for Free

Creating Website Forms are sometimes very tedious jobs if you don’t have the right tools, and more often when you need the form created within hours. Unless and until you have your resources and scripts ready it can take hours or long. For those who knows basic HTML/CSS and don’t have PHP and Database knowledge it becomes time consuming and problematic for them. In This article i will list out some of the best PHP form generator.

I have found 2  kinds of php form generators online,

  1. Form generators which created only the HTML/CSS for the forms. This type of form generators are viable for those who have the scripts ready and only need a stylish well arranged HTML/CSS with form validation.
  2. Form generators which create both HTML/CSS and the scripts required to run the form successfully in your website. This are the best options for anyone from a developer to a person who is not good in coding, it will make your work lots faster and easier, I highly recommend this php form builder.
  3. Third type are ones which allow you to create and integrate forms easily but the source code is not given to you, and submission is handled by the software company, i find this very bad, as you submissions can be used against you and you have many limitations on no of submissions and also your data can be used for other purposes, even in future it may increase price or even disappear from market, making your website broken, I dont recommend this at all.

The 1st kind of form generators are mostly free, but the 2nd  types are generally in most cases premium, though they have free options with less frills and wow factors. In this article I’ll round you up with all kinds of form creators and only those which are free or have free basic option. I’m pretty sure you won’t need to even look more after going through this article.

    if you use their resource you are bound to face such problems, use the ones which provides you the server side script too. or better still register in the site and download the script. Thats why i recommended Instant Form as it gives you the full code.

    THanks for this most helpful post! I am creating a profiling form for my website now and yr list above will really help me

    Thanks for all the helpful information both in your post and in the replies. I have an issue I hope you can address – or perhaps direct me to where I can find the answer!
    Background
    We are trying to find a program that can create a multi-page planning and reference on-line fill-in form as a “real life” application exercise for business skills learned in our cloud based learning program.

    The form isn’t needed to collect data for us, but just to allow the user to fill in and use as a practical planner.

    Do you know if one of the form software packages can:
    - Let user access the completed parts of the form the next time s/he is in our program to learn the next skill?
    - Allow the user to print the form at any time as a record and hard copy planner?
    - Let the user access a new form to use when planning for a different customer?

    So far, I’ve checked out Wufoo and even Survey Monkey without success.

    Many thanks for any suggestions!

      it is possible via Instant Form to some extect, my advice is create the basic part in Instant Form, and other parts can be coded by hiring a developer over the generated php.

    Hey thanks for the great info, I have tried a few of them out and they seem to work great.

    The one downfall is that I can find one that allows me to get the form sent as a PDF so I can download and print, it is just included within the email. Any idea on a form builder that will allow me to create a form and have it emailed as a PDF attachment? I am happy to pay for the site builder.

    Cheers,
    Tom
