Steve at Gator forms went out of his way to assist me with an issue that was being caused by my template. He could have easily just told me the issue was with the template and pushed me onto the template developers, instead he logged in and resolved the issue for me. The Gator forms team is on the ball with new features requests and updating their content. Well worth the investment. Thank you, Steve and the team!

Whatever issues this plugin might have had in the past, it's clear to me that they've been fixed. I was a little hesitant about using it because of some mixed reviews from the past, however for me it is working splendidly.
