Contact forms without captcha doesn’t seem to be good idea!

by Ruchira on April 5, 2011

Few days ago I replaced my wordpress contact form because my old contact form had some problems with new wordpress versions and my email system. Actually I’m using wordpress plugin like all of the people do, to to run my contact form here http://www.ruchirablog.com/contact/

Now I’m using Contact Form 7 plugin and it doesn’t have built in captcha system to prevent spam contact messages. But I thought I wont get much problem with it because who will waste their time to spam on my small blog contact page right? But I failed. I got about 30 spam messages for last 2 weeks.

So lesson learned. I cant ignore these anymore!

Outcome

  • Use Captcha
