​What's New in Formloom 3 For RapidWeaver

Formloom 3 update, Review By Rob Hall, CEO at rjh Web Design Rating: 5 out of 5. Formloom is the ideal plugin to create forms for RapidWeaver. It's very much a stack you will purchase once and use dozens of times!

This time last month, I got a message telling me that Yabdab's Formloom had been updated to version 3.
My reaction was "yeah, so what?" Wrong reaction!
Last night I got a message that Yabdab was up to something new, so I looked at their website – nothing new except for one of those dozens of Black Friday offers, but while I'm here why not take a quick look to see what's new about Formloom.
A lot, it turns out. A list as long as my arm.


Formloom is a RapidWeaver Plugin. Plugins allow you to build complete specialised pages for RapidWeaver: storefronts, maps, etc. or – forms. Not really prickling and anyway, I use stacks and it's always a bind getting those pages to display on a stacks page. Not so with Formloom. Formloom has become fully responsive and using the new Formloom 3 Remote Stack, you can now embed any Formloom 3 form into Stacks pages.

Programmed exclusively for RapidWeaver® 6, Formloom 3 was updated to take advantage of everything that RapidWeaver 6 and Mac OS X 10.9+ has to offer:
Totally Responsive Using Bootstrap, Formloom 3 has been completely rebuilt to output Mobile-First, Responsive HTML. Your forms will look perfect on phones, tablets or any mobile device.
New input types, include:

Star Rating
Color Picker

formloom ux

Further enhancements are:
Save Data to Google® Sheets Save your form submitted data to your specified Google® (Spread)Sheets.
Tooltips  Place hover-tooltips on your inputs and position them to the top, letft, right, bottom and more. 
Input Icons  Complete Font Awesome support for placing icons in your input fields. 
Masking Support  Make sure input data s formatted exactly how you need it by using the new masking feature. 
New Validation Rules  Make sure you get the info you need with the many validation rules that have been added to Formloom 3. 

Email Validation
URL Validation
Date Validation
Require Digits (Number value)
Value Equal To...
Min Length

Block Trouble Makers  
New security feature allows you to block form submissions from specified email addresses and IP addresses.
Added Style Settings Design your form by choosing the colors, font and font sizes for your form.
DKIM Support Provide added validation for emails sent from your Formloom 3 form using DKIM.
Custom Classes For power CSS users, Yabdab provides the ability to add custom classes to your form inputs.

To round off this list, the user interface has been improved and looks good with the addition of full-screen functionailty, cleaner layout and retina optimized UI.

Yabdab says that there are many more improvements under the hood making it difficult now, to choose between FormSnap – Yabdab's form stacks – and the advanced functionality of Formloom 3.
If you build professional websites, Formloom is very much a plugin that you will purchase once and use dozens of times.
