I installed the HoneyPot plugin with CF7 V 5.1.5.
The configuration of CF7 with the theme I am using uses the placeholder attributes in each field of the form.
After installing this plugin, I always had spam emails.
As this plugin does not allow to insert a placeholder on the hidden field, I wondered if the spammer had spotted this field and avoided filling it because it is different from other fields.
So I inserted a placeholder directly in the code of the honeypot.php file in the hidden field and since then I have no more spam.
