Yeah I tried that first but got an error of missing manifest or something like that.

However, the second unzip did the trick and our system is now happily secured with the invisible. Will be very interesting to see what this does to all those attacks now.... :)

Thanks again Tihana - much appreciated!

Here a quick update where we are now. The heightened defense with Pro and hidden key worked very nicely for several weeks.., however unfortunately the bad guys have now found a way back in again, and their foolish attempts and vain registrations have started again.

Have you perhaps noticed the same? I am thinking to build a whole new form for this, in the hopes than they will then lose track once and for all.

Hi,

yes, you can do that.

But also, you can protect your form from spammers (validate each fields, use honeypot, integrate spambotcheck, and projecthoneypot.org):

If I missed something, please let me know
