VirtueMart 2 offers some great Custom Field functionality. But let's be honest - it can be a challenge to learn, and there are some things that simply can't be done yet.

For example, you can't make one custom field's choices dependent on the values chosen in another custom field, unless you're doing Parent/child products or something along those lines.  And there are a lot of other advanced custom field capabilities you might want to include, but you can't do them with the suite of standard Custom Fields, or the plugins currently available.

For example:
  • A store that sells Medicare approved products, and needs to collect detailed information from each patient upon checkout if they order specific qualified products (but not all products in the store)
  • A store that caters lunch deliveries, that wants to allow people to order food with special directions and delivery instructions for their order
  • A store that sells contacts, or eyeglasses, that needs to collect important information in a form at checkout to be kept on file for subsequent orders
  • A store that needs to collect detailed information during purchase, and integrate it with SalesForce (Breezing Forms v1.8 now supports this!
  • And lots more situations where more advanced functionality is needed than VM2 Custom Fields can support

So what if we told you that you can develop a completely custom form to collect any and all information you need for certain products, with infinite possibilities for conditional fields, complex form queries, and ability to bring forward only the final shopper responses that you want into the VM order record? Imagine the possibilities...

(go ahead, take a moment to imagine the power you'd have... we can wait)

With our VirtueMart Breezing Form Plugin PRO extension v3.0, you can create a custom Crosstec Breezing Form and integrate the results into your checkout in VirtueMart 2 with a single custom field!

Version 3.0  is now available! Checkout the documentation here: http://docs.polishedgeek.com/wiki/display/BF


Remember, this extension will not work without the Crosstec Breezing Forms component.

Hi PolishedGeek,

Does Breezing Forms have the ability to make a drop down box mandatory? this is one of my requirements and VMCustomDropBox does not offer this unfortunately

Yes, you can do all kinds of form building in Breezing Forms, including making fields mandatory, making fields conditional upon other fields, allowing users to upload very large files to Dropbox, integrating and displaying data from external databases or other tables in your Joomla database, etc.

    Complete set of form creation features

    Captcha: Native and reCaptcha
    Package system: Create your forms once and export them to other sites
    Content construction: Use our extension ContentBuilder to edit submissions in front- and backend and create native Joomla!® articles and data tables
    Export: PDF, CSV and XML
    Integrator: Bypass form data into any table of your Joomla!® database
    Newsletters: MailChimp® integration

A few exciting updates:

First, we have released the new Breezing Forms Plugin PRO for VM2 for sale, and our previous Breezing Forms plugins are now free!  You can see them here: https://polishedgeek.com/free-extensions/virtuemart-breezing-forms-plugin/overview-a-features.html  . The BF Plugin PRO allows you to trigger a custom Breezing Form as part of the checkout process for certain products.  It does not include the ability to adjust product prices.

Second, we are developing an even more advanced Breezing Forms Custom Fields extension. This one will give you endless possibilities, because you will be able to create a custom Breezing Form and embed it directly into the VM2 product details pages - and you can adjust the product price with the responses in the form! Forget struggling with VM2 Custom Fields to get what you need accomplished. Build a custom Breezing Form and take your VM2 store to a brand new level. 

Interested in either extension?  Contact us at  info [at] PolishedGeek.com to learn more.
