TomBOX created the topic: SPAM problems - how to avoid entries with links?

Hi,

in the last few months I noticed many ghost entries in our (several) forms. All forms has been secured with Googles invisible ReCaptcha, but still receives spam entries. All of these spam entries contains links.

Is there any way to avoid entries with links in it? I don't want to save them. Such entries should not be saved/accepted.

Cheers
Tom

Hey Tom,

Are the entires coming form the same website ?
You can block anything coming from certain domains/URL's/IP's via your Cpanel SpamAssasin.

Also you can check this topic on how to add validation for ULR's : crosstec.org/en/forums/3-breezingforms-f...-for-url.html#233405

The entries are not from the same domain.

Thanks for your link. But it doesn't work. I guess, I made a failure. ;)
I copied the code snippet and changed the script name to my script name. More details at screenshot.

What happens? Nothing. If I test my form, I can type in some urls. If I click on the submit button, nothing happens - nothing. And the form is NOT sended/stored.

What can I do?

Tombox,

Can you add this validation inside your element where these links are comming in ?
Go to your element > Validation > Custom and add the code from the topic.
If you still have problems with this send me your login info to support@crosstec.org and I will check this out for you.

Regards,
Mario

Hallo.

Der Name in dein Skript muss mit den Skriptnamen stimmen !

Ersetzt
function ff_avoidLinks_validation(element, message)

mit
function ff_avoidLinks(element, message)

Es müsste dann funktionieren.
mit freundlichen Grüßen.
