Hello:

I have several forms on different sites, they all get about 20-30 spam a day.  I have invisible Google reCaptcha installed.

Is there a way to block spam using BreezingForms?

Hi,

you can use the following:

1) add validation for each field
E.g. if you know from which field spams come from you can use this to block spammers

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

3) if you know ips, you can block them
crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...-one-ip-address.html

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

5) and integrate:
www.projecthoneypot.org/

This helped a lot of customers, but also it is a little hard to be 100% protect when form is online

If you get in stuck let me know

Regards,
Tihana

Hi Tihana:

I have been using the above recommendation for Spam for a little over a month now. It worked very well at first, but now I am getting the same or more spam than before.

I'm using Honeypot and all the options above.

What else can I do to stop getting so much spam?

I get about 15 to 20 spam emails a day, it's hopeless.

Thank you.
