Form does terrible job at preventing spam emails (7 posts)

    I get spam emails all day using this form. Even with Captcha and ishuman installed. There needs to be a more deterrent method for preventing bogus emails.

    A drag and drop method of arranging fields would be a nice feature too.

    Otherwise, I like this plugin.

    ifrog: I have the same problem. I have the inhuman checkbox on all my forms as a required field. So that SHOULD mean that if someone doesn't check the form, the form should not process.

    That is not the case. Every bit of spam is processing without this checkbox being checked. This is the code I get in my emails:

    To Prevent Spam, Please Check The Box. - Not Checked

    I'm even getting this note on emails from real humans who send legitimate messages.

    Taylor, how about responding and letting us know how these forms can be processed if a required field isn't checked? And please explain why the any-spam features aren't working?

    Just went to the plug-in author's Web site to send a message about this form. I did not fill out the Captcha, which is a required field. It let me send the message anyway.

    There is a serious problem here with the anti-spam features.

    I agree.. This form has had several issues with SPAM problems in the past year. Other than that I love it, but it's seriously becoming an issue.

    This really needs to be addressed.

    I have the exact problem, which is really sad, because I use this plugin because it does exactly what I need it to.

    It seems that this became a problem after the newest update? Did anyone have this problem previous to the newest version? Maybe we should just install an earlier version?
