Contact Form

    Over the last week or so, I've been getting 10-20 spam emails a day through the BWS Contact Form, even after enabling Akismet and installing the BWS Captcha plugin. The Captcha shows up, but I'm getting emails through that look like this:

    From: wtYbQszdrAcKFjh <jwixsnmn@gmail.com>
    Subject: http://www.1153eaugvdamhfcyoksmumlaovvipirt.com/

    Any recommendations?

    Hello Jesse Gardner,

    It is possible that captcha doesn't displaying with the form from
    which you are getting spam messages (usually it is a contact form).
    Also set the captcha for more complex operations on the plugin settings page.

    Kind regards.

    Is there a way to use capchas on the contact forms produced by Contact Form without using Akismet?
