Conditional logic is the key to online forms Physical forms don’t ever feel as imposing as web forms. I don’t know why that is, but when I get a form at a doctor’s office, for example, that form collects tons of data on a single sheet of paper and I don’t feel stressed. But when people design forms on your websites, because of the way most forms are designed, the form that might collect the same data ends up taking up the virtual space of three pages. How do you get around this problem? You only show the fields that you need to. In other words, you do the thing that you can’t do on paper forms – you dynamically present (using conditional logic) only the fields that are appropriate to each user. Because this is a critical feature of online forms, it’s no surprise that many WordPress form plugins support conditional logic. These plugins offer it as a key part of their main features: These plugins offer it as a part of their “pro” offering, or as an add-on: Regardless of whether it’s an add-on or as part of the plugin, you’re going to want support for conditional logic in your WordPress forms because they make everything
