    Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to add a blank hidden field into the form. If the field is filled in, then it means a spambot has filled it in and the submission of the form should break. Is it possible to do something like this?

    Maybe this topic went out of date but it is easy to solve with the quiz fields. Creating a quiz field with an empty answer can do that.

    For example, an quiz like

    "Please leave this field empty (spam defense)|"

    wont validate if anything is typed into that field. (Note there is nothing between the pipe and the closing quotes.)

    You can push this field aside with css

    postion : abolute; top : -999em; left : -999em;

    to prevent your users from misunderstanding the field.
