Formidable Pro: Post to Instagram

Todays post is a test of an interesting bit of code supplied by Lance Newman who reverse engineered the Instagram handshake that took place in his phone. We thought it was a very clever response to the oft stated refrain - you cannot Post to Instagram. Lance shows how a little perseverance and technical smarts makes the impossible possible. Admittedly standing on Lances shoulders and his good work we thought we'd take his approach try applying it using Formidable Pro to accept images then try and post them to Instagram. This little app uses Broad Street Networks Instagram Account.

Formidable Pro Color Picker Plugin – Add Color Pickers To Your Forms

Recently we were working on a project that required us to supply some design control for clients submitting a WordPress post via a Formidable Pro form. We thought wouldn't it be nice to give these users a simple color picker to set things like title colors, background colors and the like.

Formidable Pro: Easy Tabs From Formidable Section Headings jQuery

Quite often we're asked to take a form and make its sections show up in tabbed format - that is, allow the user to show or hide form sections by clicking tabs down the side or across the top of the page. It's pretty easy to do with a bit of jQuery and CSS.


Formidable Pro: Search by Letter

In this simple little tutorial we tinker with Formidable Pro filters and advanced search options to sort/filter the results of submitted data by first letter of some field. In this case we are going to create a form that populates a small directory of First and Last names and allow you to click a link and filter results by that letter.


Formidable Pro: Add a MailPoet Subscriber using Formidable Pro

We recently had an inquiry from a client looking to integrate their MailPoet user subscription list with one of our favorite tools in our Toolbox, Formidable Pro. Turns out, after a little research, it's actually quite easy. In this Lab post, we use a Formidable Pro form to add users to a an existing MailPoet mailing list.


Formidable Pro: Adding icons to your form fields to make them awesome-er

I think we can all admit that forms, out of the box, are pretty damn boring. These essential UI elements that are largely responsible for most "conversion" opportunities all too often get short shrift in the design department. Recently, we helped a client make their forms a little bit more engaging and thought that there were folks out there who might benefit from these relatively easy steps. In this brief introduction you will get shown how to adjust Formidable Pro CSS classes to incorporate a little awesome-ness using Font Awesome Icons to "pretty-up" form fields.
