Documentation will be posted after stability has been reached. SimpleForms may likely be renamed to something else. Possibilities include DevForms, QuickForms, and FormCrafter.


  • [x] Form attachments (mostly ready; need to do some more testing to confirm)
  • [x] Make AJAX optional, using standard form submission protocols (majority done)
  • [x] Add translation (module) support
  • [ ] Migrate existing translation technique to mirror Jumplinks 2 (unpublished) behaviour
  • [x] Auto-prepend form stylesheet to HTML templates (working, but additional considerations to be made, such as being able to define which templates will not receive the stylesheet contents)
  • [x] Add YAML support for form config (JSON is preferred by the module when both formats are provided)
  • [ ] Add multi-lang support for config file (possibility: config.[lang-code])
  • [ ] Make module configurable - allow for default form-recipient and noreply/auto-response sender, and allow for addition of email disclaimer/signature text for the purposes of importing (this would need to have support for multiple languages)
  • [ ] Simple form builder, based on JSON specifications (include support for Bootstrap, Foundation, and ProcessWire InputFields)
  • [ ] Template attachments for logos or social buttons in emails
  • [ ] Add autoload support (SoC)
  • [ ] Save submitted forms and make view-link available in emails (form-receipient only)
