It’s not every day that I get really excited about a plugin I am working on. Don’t get me wrong, every plugin I develop is exciting, but more so from a ‘solving a puzzle’ or ‘fulfilling someone else’s requirement’ point of view. Granted, this is the reason I got into plugin development and it is a great feeling to know that people out there are using my plugins to make their lives easier.
What I’m talking about is the excitement I get about the fact that I am busy developing a plugin that not only will make others lives easier but also the fact that I it has scope to become so much more than the current sum of its parts. It’s one of the first plugins I’ve written that has the potential for so much more than what I am aware of and I am more excited about the future feature requests I’m going to get from the Divi community than anything else.
Allow me to introduce you then, to Atlantic Wave’s Elegant Forms plugin.
Building on the base of the Divi theme Contact Form module, with Elegant Forms I hope to fill a gap that, up to now, has required to the installation of other third party plugins like Gravity Forms or Contact Form 7. By baking Elegant Forms right into the Divi Page Builder I hope to bring the same extended functionality to your Divi site builder experience.
I’m about halfway through development of version 1 and I’m already planning the features to be added to future versions. I’ve included some ‘sneak peek’ screenshots of some of the functionality below. If this excites you as much as it does me, comment below and let me know what you think. I’d also love to hear your requests for features to be added to this plugin.
As an added bonus, if you comment with your thoughts or a feature request below, when the plugin releases I’ll randomly select a winner from the comments to receive a 100% discount coupon on Elegant Marketplace, effectively giving you a free copy of the plugin at launch.
