C7 Form Builder


C7 Form Builder provides an easy to use and powerful API allowing you to build even complex forms with ease. Using this plugin, you can create custom meta boxes, custom user profile fields, custom taxonomy fields, setting pages or even contact forms. With C7 Form Builder, you are not limited to either frontend forms or admin forms as with other WordPress form builder plugins.


  • Redirect to a custom WordPress page or a URL after successful submission.
  • Break large forms into tabs.
  • Inbuilt repeatable field support. Dynamically add or remove all the bundled field types excluding hidden, select and submit field types as repeatable field support is removed intentionally from them.
  • Sortable Fields – drag and drop all the repeatable fields to change the order.
  • Compatible with any CSS framework like Bootstrap, Foundation, etc.
  • Using field storage types, save form fields anywhere you want.
  • Create and register new form types, field types, form view types, field view types, and storage types.
