Not sure if anyone knows a simple answer to this, but a website I look after for a customer has a Quick Contact PHP form on the home page that the customer wanted, just in case people were too busy to go to the proper contact page and fill out the full request/estimate form.
Spammers have found a way to bypass the Captcha code and are sending emails about buying Viagra, etc as per the norm. I know there is reCaptcha, but I’d like to stick with the current system, as besides the spam issue, customers like it and it works.
I’ve tried changing the text box validation to reject any message over 76 characters, but I’ve got one come through that was only 64 characters long. Can anyone else think of a way of adding say a checkbox and having it validated using PHP at all, as apparently this is something that might stop BOTS? Or any other suggestions as a way around this at all?
