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


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:

After sending the plugin to the WordPress site you want to publish to, it’s almost an automatic process to get your landing page to go live. You do need to remember to create the URL inside of WordPress, but the plugin takes care of showing you which landing pages haven’t been published yet. It’s a super easy process. Nice job Instapage!

Hello can I somehow validate a field in the account registration page?

I al taking for the billing section of the account page typically located here: my-account/edit-address/billing/

Lest create an example of a problem.

I need that the company filed not to have fewer than 4 letters. So if someone writes “com” in the field it will be wrong but if someone writes “company” it will be correct. So the one with the invalid company name I would like to display the error “Invalid company name” in the notification area and let the user correct the error.

Can This be done? I could not find anything that validates this page only the checkout page

First off, thank you for this plugin! Exactly what I was needing. Everything was quick and easy to get running.

On the WP install I am posting to, I also need to send out an email, when the new post is added. To do this, I am using a plugin called Better Notifications for WordPress. However, the plugin does not work when posts are added via the REST API.

The plugin author had this question, about your plugin, and how it uses the user account when posting:

The main question for any plugin that authorises a user via the WP REST API is:
Are they overriding the current user and making it available to the WordPress core functions? If they are, then we should be able to trigger notifications for it.

Is this something you can answer for me? If yes, we can get the other plugin working as expected.

Hallo zusammen,

ich verfasse sonst nur kurze Reviews – in diesem Fall bin ich aber gerne etwas ausführlicher. Was Herr Maier mit Advanced Ads auf die Beine gestellt hat, ist schon beachtlich. Das Plugin bietet eigentlich alle Funktionen (und Platzierungen), die man braucht, um eine Webseite professionell zu vermarkten.

Das Anlegen der Werbeplätze ist zudem kinderleicht. Als SEO-Agentur haben wir auch stets ein Auge auf die Auswirkungen eines Plugins auf die Ladezeiten einer Seite. Auch in dieser Disziplin kann Advanced Ads überzeugen.

Bei Fragen zu dem Plugin helfe ich gerne weiter.

Hi, the ‘Insert Post Ads’ settings page has disappeared from the admin menu.

The only way to access the page is directly via the URL (…wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=insertpostads&page=insert-post-ads) or via the plugins page.

I’ve created a gallery of 20 images that is suppose to be right above the women drinking a cup of coffee (she’s in pink).

I’re created the gallery with Elements Plus (gallery), which is loaded into Elementor’s widgets sidebar. The gallery shows in real time updates. And, I also see the gallery of 20 images in my WP dashboard when I view the page there. The problem is the gallery doesn’t show on my published site.

I am using Syndey’s child theme.
