Collecting Birthdate info

New postby charisma » Sun Dec 08, 2013 6:20 pm

I need to build a form for a credit application and we need to collect the visitors Birthdate, SSN, etc... preferably via a drop-down.

Is this possible?

Hi,

You can have any type of drop-downs. But there is nothing special for birthdate. You can create drop-downs for day, month and year.

Best Regards,
Simon

Thank you for the info. However, this would make for a very long vertical list. Is there any way to have these dropdowns on the same horizontal line?

Hi,

Unfortunately in current version it is not possible to have fields rendered horizontally.

I love the look and ease of implementation of this extension, and I have used the free version on 2 small sites already, where simple contact info was required, but i need to have horizontal functionality prior to purchase, as the bulk of my clients require larger, more complex forms. I have aprroximately 25 questions that need to be asked and a vertical list is impractical for my needs.

It would be a very useful addition to be able to render several columns rather than have an extremely long list.

Are you planning on adding it in the next version?
If so, approximately when?

Thanks for suggestion. I will add that functionality on next release. Probably in two months.

Excellent news, I can't wait.
Sadly, it doesn't help me with my current project so I'm stuck using clunky out-of-the-box forms that look like crap and require tons of css [time consuming].

Please keep me informed the moment the new version is available.

I'm first in line to purchase! LOL

I already added a review in JED, but could only give it a 4 until multiple horizontal columns, with varying widths, is developed.
Afterwardsw I'll gladly raise the rating to a 5 [6, if possible...lol]

Thanks again.
