Formidable (WordPress plugin)

What is Formidable?

Formidable is a WordPress plugin that allows WordPress users to build forms for various needs for your website. As a WordPress plugin, it uses a combination of the WordPress WYSIWYG capabilities and custom HTML and CSS to create interactive forms within your site’s theme.

Formidable’s Pro version is available as a plugin to any University faculty, staff, or student via UO Blogs powered by Edublogs.

Note: Due to the nature of how WordPress stores Formidable form entries, it is not recommended for use to garner UO ID numbers (95#s) or any other FERPA or HIPAA data. For more information on what types of student information can be acquired from it, please consult the Registrar’s Office resource on Directory Information
