FSQM Pro Vs Gravity Forms

After working 1 year with FSQM Pro, i’ve just switched to the famous Gravity Forms plugin. For those interested in knowing pros/cons of those two plugins, please read the following.

First i have to say that both plugin are powerfull ones, and allow more or less the same things, considering the core of each. I’ll focus on the differences then.

  1. FSQM Pro

    Main Pros & Cons

    • Very nice statistic report are automatically generated for each form, based on all user submissions. You can directly download a PDF file.
    • Nice looking CSS templates and smooth animations (for conditional fields selections)
    • Price around 30$, instead of 40$, 100$ and 200$ for gravity forms.
    • Documentation and support between average and poor – i actually switched to Gravity Forms for this reason
    • Drag & Drop interface is cool
  2. Gravity Forms

    Main Pros & Cons

    • Multiple Gravity forms plugin extending functionalities
    • Documentation & support are good
    • Hooks much better in gravity forms : there’s a php hook for almost every step of process

Conclusion

To me, it seems obvious that Gravity Forms is better, from several points of view. But, if you only need a plugin for displaying forms (that can be very complex), you can go with FSQM Pro without any problem. If you need to code php that communicate with those plugin, definitely Gravity Form is much better for that, with all the hooks prepared and extended documentation.
If this can save you a few hours of tests, as i did, i would be happy ! 🙂

Best free wordpress multisite plugins for editorial content

After one year of hard work with WordPress Multisite and a 14 educational blogs daily updated, i can narrow (after lots of tests and mistakes) which plugins are really useful and robust enough for that kind of network blogs. I also created a plugin myself (Chief Editor) because i wasn’t able to find any doing this simple thing : see all my posts statuses across the network and all comments. I also would like to see my author performances, so i included a tab about that, inspired by the Blog Metrics plugin.
All plugins described here are the one activated on my own site, and i have no link with any plugin seller (mine is free).
Most of them are free, i’ll notice if not. Even if some of them can be quite old, they all work nicely on a WordPress Multisite 3.9 install.
Here we go:

Unfortunately, plugin doesnot have translation files. Please find here content of /languages/ folder with generated .pot and translations to Russian: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1hcIjLaFjwtYOpKOWusTMY5g1vA6Lqyv_?usp=sharing

Kindly include it in a new plugin version.

All .php files in plugin code contain word “woocommerce” with 3 “m” characters. Should you rename them (10 files in total)?

This is the first plugin I install whenever I start a new WordPress/Woocommerce site.

Unlike many other commercial plugins, the free version is fully functional and not missing any essential features.

Gives me peace of mind.

Having had many issues with WP Super Cache (we have used this plugin for years), we decided to make a change.

After some tests we found this plugin to outperform WP Super Cache and appears much more stable.

We managed to shave a couple of seconds off with this plugin on a website hosted with DigitalOcean using Serverpilot.

Very impressed! Keep up the great work guys!!!

Very nice plugin ! 🙂

Some Suggestions from me …

1) How about an option to translate the terms e.g. Overview, Cast, Crew …

2) An Option to insert his own tmdb api and “set a language code” to get the data in a selected language e.g. german, french …
