    Hi Matthew

    Just wondering if you are planning on incorporating any further spam prevention methods in the near future?

    I’ve seen in a few posts that you have said you won’t be incorporating captcha, which is fine, but we’re getting a lot of spam entries suddenly (in excess of 50 today alone) from email addresses at the following domains: @mailbreaker.com.au, @livedomains.com.au & @hoodmail.com.au

    We have got the verification set as required on all forms.

    Otherwise, a function to filter entries by email domain would be a huge help to deal with this.

    Kind Regards
    Kirstan

  • There is a field that looks like it functions as a honey spot (secret) named “verification.” Bots can not see that this field is hidden. If they enter any digits or alphas, the verification fails.

    I’ve got some updates to the security that have been in the Pro and will be ported over to the free version. Sorry for the trouble.
