[Pro] Email security

Hi folks. I’m looking for a Freeway Pro Action which will enable me to place on a site Contact page an image of random distorted text so that correspondents have to copy it before sending their email.

I’m guessing you know the sort of thing I mean. It’s an anti-spam device.

Does anyone know of such an Action?

Have you tried the easiform set up. Its pretty comprehensive:

You can build the whole form using these actions.

Thanks. I’ve used the php feedback action and it seems a bit flaky. sometimes it works and sometimes not. Do you know the cost of the easiform set up? My client will have to be consulted.

As far as I recall it was around £20 per domain but best check with the easibase folk.
Theres a few different elements to the whole thing but the support was good.

Best of luck with it.

John,
The cost is from $20 per domain name, $30 for the easiForm and easiCaptcha bundle.

There is a tutorial page outlining things here:
http://www.easibase.com/freeway/freeway_form.php

or you can select the 'Download ’ link beside ‘Newley updated’ on the following page to download an in depth pdf on creating a form in Freeway and then using the easiForm actions on the form:
http://www.easibase.com/freeway/freewayactions.php

The easiForm actions generate foles that require the ioncube decoder so your server will need to be ioncube friendly, Ineedhosting, Havehost and GoDaddy (you need to create a php ini file on server account) are along with many others but check with support or set up your form and check before purchasing the actions.

Commonly referred to as a ‘Captcha’

Does any else have experience with the PHP Feedback action?

I’ve used it successfully, but right now it has become flaky. Is it better to use it as a page action or apply it to a form? I’ve made sure the form is not layered and aslo that the page is called contact.html and not php. What else should I be checking on?

Thanks in anticipation.

Applying it to the form will encourage you to use a table as your layout container, so that can only be a good thing from a page structure standpoint.

In my experience, PHPFF works perfectly until the hosting provider changes something or upgrades (or doesn’t upgrade) something. They are always your first port of call, especially if you can point to a moment in time when it went bad. Odds are very great that something was changed on their end at that same moment.

PHPFF needs careful configuration to work with GoDaddy servers. This is not the fault of the Action, but the nimrods at GoDaddy, who have some curious ideas about security and e-mail.

The documentation is extensive and expert. Read it, make sure you’ve done everything it requires. If you can’t make your existing site work, try creating a small test document – just the form and the various error/success pages – and upload that. See if you can reproduce the error in miniature.

Thanks Walt. My host is iPage. I’ll have a word with them tomorrow.

Incidentally, I have trouble using a table as a layout container. The text fields and text area do not sit well inside the cells and, most annoyingly, they differ in appearance when I switch to ‘Preview’ mode.

I have trouble using a table as a layout container.

This is the easy part - look at my example to see the construction. I have left a border on the table so that you can see how it is put together but that is removed in the final version.

This is not important - it can be either. Just make sure that the action is applied to either the table that holds the form elements (as per my example) or to the Page.

The contact.html contact.php thing will not affect whether the form works or not just whether you can preview it FW or not.
