Caldera Forms is now closed (as of 5 April 2022)

One year ago we announced our plans to sunset Caldera Forms. It was a hard call for us to make, and a hard thing for many of you to hear. Despite our original plans for the Caldera Forms plugin not working out the way we had envisioned, we sincerely appreciate the Caldera Forms community. Having had the opportunity to speak with many of you through Facebook, email, and interviews, your support and dedication to the plugin, and especially one another, is extraordinary. Thank you.

What happens now?

Updates and support for Caldera Forms and its add-ons have now been discontinued. You will still technically be able to use the plugin on your websites. However, as with any software not being actively maintained, it is a growing security liability for you and you users in the absence of ongoing security updates, and compatibility with WordPress will eventually break. We strongly recommend finding an alternative as soon as possible if you have not already.

We have developed an automated conversion tool for forms and entries. This tool will convert any Caldera Forms forms & entries into Ninja Forms forms and submissions without touching your original forms and entries. Please don’t hesitate to ask us if you have questions about, or need a hand with, switching over. Please note: as of January 2024, the conversion tool is deprecated and no longer receiving support / updates. Manual migration will be required.

Most add-ons that existed for Caldera Forms have a Ninja Forms alternative. Please reach out if you’re unsure the features you need are available, or browse our full list of available add-ons and/or memberships.
