[resolved] Using Captcha but lots of spam coming through. (3 posts)

    I just recently added this contact plugin to my site and notice I am getting a bunch of spam...

    You know the kind:

    From: xoyiarxs <jbqexd@vwuhtr.com>
    Subject: XFmsACJAjxGIZysMhO

    I have the image Captcha set up correctly, I have tested entering the wrong Captcha letters and it doesn't go through, so I'm wondering why this Captcha may not be working for me to prevent spam submissions?

    Maybe those spams have some intelligence to read simple letters on image. I would advise you to use Akismet filtering in combination.

    Thanks for the great idea. I sure will do that.
