PHP Form Email Spam

Hi All

I have a PHP Feedback Form Action here

Version 2.3.3

www.orionoptics.co.uk/specialproduct.html

for special product orders.

Quite often I assume potential hackers are filling in the form with nonsense and submitting.

Is there anything that can me done to stop it or validate an email form being sent.

There is an option in the PHPFF Action palette - Add a Spam Trap

This places a hidden field that bots automatically filling forms will put content in - the action will then reject the form.

This will not stop human spammers filling out your form though!

Mike B has his easiform action suite that goes some way to providing more anti-spam measures but his action is not free. http://www.actionsforge.com/projects/view/35-easiform

Strange I have only v 2.0.1 Tim’s site leads to ActiosForge has only 2.0.0,
has Tim been patching it with useful things we don’t know about?

Best wishes Peter

Well I’ve downloaded that one and it is v 2.3.2, the additions are the stuff
for the GoDaddy and FastHosts problems recently.

Strange that version is on on the ActiosForge site?

Best wishes Peter

Thanks for replies.

I got the Action direct from Tim as I had a problem with a form not posting properly.

It has “Add a Trusted Sender” field at the very bottom and is Version 2.3.3 in bottom right corner of the Actions window.
I have the spam trap feature enabled.

Will have a look at DeltaDave’s link for the easiform action.
Thanks for replies.
