Just a quick question regarding my forms in Freeway Pro.
I have just learned that their may be a potential problem with spammers due to the lack of a Captcha, well I think that’s what you call it.
So I learned of a piece of software called easiCaptcha by www.easibase.com
The problem however is that my forms end in .html rather then the .php which they kindly informed me is required. That wouldn’t be no problem except my web-host is Fatcow and www.easibase.com say they have had a problem with getting easiCaptcha to work with Fatcow. Please see e-mails below.……
You can use .php files on Fat cow as long as you have an account that has PHP, the .php to .html is changed within Freeway.
I have just had a client try to use PHP easiForm on Fatcow but unfortunately although Fatcow have ioncube and permit the loaders there seems to be some problem where their system configuration does not allow the loaded ioncube file to function, nor is their error detecting system very helpful so I would suggest if you continue to use Fat cow then do not purchase the PHP easiForm license as it will probably not ork with this company.
There are hosting companies out there that are cheap, reliable, permit ioncube and run properly without problems, one of those companies is http://ineedwebhosting.co.uk
You will need the PHP easiForm action to integrate with the PHP easiCaptcha unless you can hand code, at the end of the day it uses ioncube also. I do not know what the problem with Fatcow is, they have ioncube available on their servers but running the script on the server returns an ‘unexplained’ not permitted error while no further information is supplied on the server account logs which is where it tells the user to look. There are over 300 PHP easiForm working out there on ioncube friendly servers without problem while for some reason on Fatcow they do not!
If anyone could help to resolve this issue or perhaps suggest something new altogether. I would be greatly appreciative. While I know I could change web hosts, to be quite honest, apart from this issue I have been very happy with Fatcow so far.
If anyone could help I would be greatly appreciative
