Page Forms was created, and mostly written by, Yaron Koren, reachable at yaron57 -at- gmail.com. Stephan Gambke contributed significant parts of the code, especially of the JavaScript, as well as the "datepicker" and "regexp" input types (both originally written for the Semantic Forms Inputs extension).

Various features have been added by students taking part in the Google Summer of Code:

  • The jQuery and related JavaScript functionality was initially created by Sanyam Goyal as part of the 2010 Google Summer of Code
  • The code to integrate with the Page Schemas extension was created by Ankit Garg as part of the 2011 Google Summer of Code.
  • The section-handling code was added by Himeshi De Silva as part of the 2013 Google Summer of Code.
  • The code for the "tokens" and "combobox" input types, as well as integration with the External Data extension, were added by Jatin Mehta as part of the 2014 Google Summer of Code.
  • The page Special:MultiPageEdit was added by Yashdeep Thorat as part of the 2018 Google Summer of Code.
