Spamproof contact (4 posts)

    Some way of having a contact form, or a spamproofed email address would be useful. The blog owners email address is already stored within the program somewhere, so having a way for a reader to click a link and submit an email (or similar) would be cool.
    Although contact forms are available, and using various scripts and codes can do this, an inbuilt feature would enhance WP.

    Yea, I saw that thread ...
    The Formmail script I downloaded is nasty. I cannot delete one of the folders within it (I'll have to use DOS I reckon) so I don't want it.
    It wasn't a foobarred download (I tried twice) and even just deleting individual files within that download took suspiciously long.
    I did look at yours Sushubh, but couldn't figure it out :)
    I have found a script, and once the sendmail works, it'll do, but given that we have anti-spam measures for comments, and email spam is even more of a problem, I still think it would be a nice bonus to have such a feature in WP.
    Putting anything into a Link results in the Link coding being applied, so it's not as straightforward if you want (as I do) a 'contact' link to be similarly styled. Calling a 'formmail.php' can be styled easily, and although there are security risks with having such a script on your site, I'd like to think that given the correct warnings, people would find it useful.
    Anyway, I thought I'd add to the WP Wishlist :)
