Contact Form 7 Honeypot

Contact Form 7 Honeypot - Adds honeypot anti-spam functionality to CF7 forms.

Will this module stop all my contact form spam?

  • Probably not. But it should reduce it to a level whereby you don't require any additional spam challenges (CAPTCHA, math questions, etc.).

Are honeypots better than CAPTCHAs?

  • This largely depends on the quality of the CAPTCHA. Unfortunately the more difficult a CAPTCHA is to break, the more user-unfriendly it is. This honeypot module was created because we don't like CAPTCHA's cluttering up our forms. Our recommendation is to try this module first, and if you find that it doesn't stop enough spam, then employ more challenging anti-spam techniques.

Can I modify the HTML this plugin outputs?

  • Yep! New in version 1.5 of the plugin you're able to adjust the HTML by hooking the output filter for the plugin. See the Installation section for more details.
