Hi there,

We constantly receive form messages that are simply repeating the same messages again and again.

The messages are from different IP addresses that we could not block them via IP addresses.

We had enabled Google ReCaptcha and would like to see whether Breezing form could have a better way to stop them.

Thank you

Hi,

it is a little hard to be totally secure when form is online, but what you can do is following:

1) add validation for each field.
Go to element->Properties->Validation, you can select validation from Library, or you can make a Custom validation, depend on what you want to prevent to spammers enters (e.g. badwords).

2) add honeypot:
crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...ts/210-honeypot.html

3) you can protect your site with:
www.vi-solutions.de/en/joomla-plugin-plgspambotcheck

4) also you can integrate:
www.projecthoneypot.org/

Hope this helps

Regards,
Tihana

Thank you very much for the super fast and detailed reply!

It appears that the is filled by Human as we had enabled Google Recaptcha, but we are still getting a few emails every day. Therefore we are not sure whether we could stop them via HoneyPot.

We realized that the insert links to the message area. Is there a way to disable the HTML tags in the message fields (so that we could disable the link) and make the form could not be submitted if it contains certain keywords?

Thank you.

Hi,

go to that message field->Propertis->Validation->check Custom and put:
function ff_nameofyourelement_validation(element, message)
{
 var ex=/(<([^>]+)>)/ig;
    var ex1=/(https?:\/\/)?([\da-z\.-]+)\.([a-z\.]{2,6})([\/\w \.-]*)/g;
    if (!ex.test(element.value) && !ex1.test(element.value) && element.value != '') return '';
        if (message=='') message = element.name+" can't have HTML and links or be empty.\n";
        ff_validationFocus(element.name);
        return message;
} // ff_nameofyourelement_validation
Please replace nameofyourelemet with name of your message element(not title)

Hope this helps

Regards,
Tihana

Hi,
I tried the different options given on this post to block spams.
1 : Honeypot : unfortunately after I followed the steps, the form doesn't work anymore. Messages are not sent
2 : avoid url in the message : I can't find where to put the custom code
where is the Validation tab in the form properties ?

I really need help :unsure:
