Previously avaialable only as a "registered" program, MForms2 is now available for direct download. It will eventually be replaced by an ALL-NEW program.
| Appreciate MForms2 is a special purpose program and as such does not contain all the complex options of ennyForms.
|**MFormsPro still uses efficient server resource friendly flat file data files,
and will avoid any licensing problems that may arise from the mySQL sellout (2010).
**MFormsPro DOES NOT use MySQL!
MFormsPro2.2 Perl 5+ UNIX program... MFormsPro2 is a multi-page form handler
accepting input from large forms spread over multiple pages; most
suitable for professional sites that perhaps need to divide
input into sections, moving the visitor on to the next page as
each form is answered....
of the program works from an easily set up template for input
checking and tidy emailed-list sorting. Control data is in
the template; NOT in the html.
pages and forms can be designed freely to suit the site including the "preview" page (if used)... even the error report pages can be html edited (separate files).
NO miriad of hidden tags needed in the form code = NO resulting hidden? values which can be viewed by surfers looking at your form code!
Except for the
first page, pages are hidden and generated by the program on request
- therefore the first page can be search engine indexed, AND the receivers and others email addresses are not placed in hidden tags as is the case with other old fashioned programs; ie. not available to
Because most pages
are generated from your hidden originals, several handy options
can be imbedded at output.

I thought I would let you know ... the installation
went very smoothly. Thanks for the clear instructions
and the supplied demo, they were all I needed to get
going. ...I really like the online tool you provide
to extract the form data.
...Anyway, thanks again - great product.
includes a preview option, is multi-language capable (you
copy and edit the program-reports language texts!), and includes
new options... most can be tried via the working sample,
which also includes informative "explain" pages - you
receive this sample for install testing!
While the multi-language
option cannot be guaranteed for ALL languages, assistance is in
the program should duplicate applications be needed.
sample application shows how the "last or thankyou"
page could even be an introduction to a separate payment cart
NOTE: The Demo
application is just that, a demo. You can design virtualy
any forms you need to - not just for the reasons used here....
a v2.2 Working
SAMPLE ( new window )
installation, and all new additions, the detailed set-up help
page has doubled in size for v2.2!
Cookies are NOT
needed for tracking the user, and selected input is also saved to an FTP
accessible flat file data base. There are several receiver and
user e-mail options (a seperate editable text file option AND
included full input list option for the users auto e-mail response),
plus multi-select input items are recognised.
A unique reference
number is also added to e-mails and data base file.
can be used for multiple applications on the same site, and
even the final response / thankyou page is not internally generated
but also created by you to suit the site look and style; there
are several options available for imbedding in the last page - see sample.
before submission" has been added to v2.2 - as an
option - and that page is also completely designed by you; config
options even allow control of appearence of the generated table

Dear Mr. Woolley:
Our company, theautofinder.com, Inc., is a web site that assists customers online with Automobile Loans and Vehicle Search requests ...... Your program, MFormsPro solved our problem.... View Jay Jones complete letter.
does NOT carry previous page input in to subsequent pages with
a mass of "hidden" input tags as many basic methods
programs do (user ID dat files are used by MFormsPro2 instead)
- no exposure of private details to cache .- intermediate
forms cannot be accessed, only the first form;
submissions, back tracking, use of cached pages, and random access
of form pages is not allowed (will have to start again!)...
only serious users will complete the form process!
exclusive! A problem for webmasters when developing / editing
/ testing HTML pages containing multi-page forms is the repeated
filling in of "required" fields when ever viewing /
checking page after page without errors... MFormsPro2 overcomes
this by the entry of a webmaster's password into one nominated
field, and then all pages can be generated one after the other
without laboriously filling all other fields. Test e-mails
are returned to the webmaster also - try it with the working
sample... link above.
Now that this old version is available for download (previously needed registration), the auto on-line "assistant" is no longer available!!
People are constantly trying to avoid the expense of a shopping
cart program by using form handling programs. Shopping cart programs
are very complex BY NECESSITY for the logical secure control/tracking
of a "stateless" web environment. MFormsPro2 IS NOT
a shopping cart program.

|Poorly set up PC Firewalls and hidden ISPs may block your request
...and do not complain if using NS default caching!
If you agree to above, extract the selected compressed file
a local-computer directory before proper FTP up loading and it will place all files into
the suggested directories. You must read 'readme.htm' and alter the configuration
variables in the config files before FTP posting to your site.
NO installation support offered for this free-to-use version
Appreciate MForms2 is a special purpose program and as such does not contain all the complex options of ennyForms.
Except through the authors install service, NO REMUNERATION what-so-ever can be received for MFormsPro2 ie so called web designers on anothers behalf... don't like it? ...you rarely support anyone!... see ya!
