Ninja News: April Adventures


Okay. Ninja Forms didn’t have a baby, but one of our team did and we’re super exited about growing family. It actually happened at the end of March, but since we were down a team member on paternity leave it didn’t make it in our updates. Congratulations to Justin and Elizabeth!!! Enjoy your little one, it’s going to be one Ella a ride. See what I did there? 🙂

On to your regularly scheduled broadcasting

Here are highlights of the core updates, add-on updates, and brand new add-ons that we’ve tackled over the last 30 days. It’s been an adventurous April. Hope you enjoy! 🙂

Ninja Forms is continually evolving and improving! Here’s some noteworthy samples of what was added and tweaked this month. For a full list, see our changelog on!
