Hi Mario / Mihaela,

I already have below code running on each page of the website:
<script type="text/javascript">
        window.onbeforeunload = function () {
            var inputButton = document.getElementsByTagName("BUTTON");
            var inputInput = document.getElementsByTagName("INPUT");   
            for (var i = 0; i < inputButton.length; i++) {
                if (inputButton[i].type == "button" || inputButton[i].type == "submit") {
                    inputButton[i].disabled = true;
            for (var j = 0; j < inputInput.length; j++) {
                if (inputInput[j].type == "button" || inputInput[j].type == "submit") {
                    inputInput[j].disabled = true;

Still, 10 records were created for a single submission. I tried reproducing on my end by clicking multiple times on 'Submit' button but record was only created once.

Do I need to add captcha as well or was there anything wrong on the user's computer who submitted the form?

Please guide.

The script itself is fine and should do the job.
But at the end of your post you said that you could add ReCaptcha to your form wich would be the best solution IMO.

I also have a more simplier script that would disable Submit AFTER submit but ReCaptcha did show as a better solution for this issue.

Can you please add it and let me know if these kind of bulk emails happen again.
