Joomla 5 Notice

Today, October 31, 2023, we released Visforms 4.4.0.
We are pleased to announce that our Joomla extension Visforms is now compatible with Joomla 5.

Our Joomla extension Spambotcheck is currently not yet compatible with Joomla 5 and the installation cannot be started on Joomla 5. We expect to release a release with Joomla 5 compatibility shortly.

For all who are still updateing from Joomla 3 to Joomla 4: Joomla 4 Migration instructions are available here:

There is now a separate Documentation for Visforms for Joomla 4!

Heads Up: This is the documentation for Joomla 3

We recommend using the Documentation for Joomla 4!

It is more up-to-date and extensive. Most of it applies retrospectively to Joomla 3.

Prevent default enter key action in form

These features are part of the Visforms Subscription and not available in the free Visforms version..

The default behavior of HTML forms, when a user presses the enter key inside a form input element, is, that the form is submitted. This behavior is implemented through the browser. But especially with forms with many fields, this is usually not the behavior you wish for.

The Visforms Subscription will add a new option to the form configuration, that allows you to prevent that the form is submitted, when a user presses the enter key inside a form field. You will find this new option in the form configuration tab "Advanced" right under the "Layout Settings" block.

Prevent auto submit on enter

Enable this option if you want to prevent the form from being auto-submitted if a user presses the enter key inside a form input element.
