I have 3 forms on a site - one of the forms has been receiving a continual stream of spam submissions with a link to a url as part of the email address, and an image loaded in the name text field.

I have a. honeypot field in place on this form and recaptcha.

Anything else I could do to put a stop to the spam?

Hi,

you receive spam through an email field and a text field, if I understood correctly?

Sorry I guess it's actually just the name text field which is always filled with this:
Hello! <a href=" kawer.page.link/dAjD ">a.radikal.ru/a32/2009/7c/5ce4893170f4.jpg " width="960" height="540" alt="bill" />

Then the email itself contains that image in the name field.

Hi,

maybe we can make a validation for this textfield.
That field can only accept letters without links.

What do you think about that?
If that's ok with you, I'll help you with the code

Hi,

go to this textfield->Properties->Validation->check Custom->Create Code framework and put this:
function ff_NAMEOFTEXTFIELD_validation(element, message)
{
var letters = /^[a-zA-Z]+$/
    if (!letters.test(element.value)) {
        if (message=='') message = element.name+" faild in my test.\n"
        ff_validationFocus(element.name);
        return message;
    } // if
    return '';
} // ff_NAMEOFTEXTFIELD_validation

Please replace NAMEOFTEXTFIELD with name of your textfield

Let me know if it works for you

Regards,
Tihana
