    I've installed the form but am getting a lot of spam. Is there a captcha or similar add-on?

    I am also getting an extreme amount of spam with the WP Highrise Contact plugin. Anyone find a solution?

    I was just reading about this on their website. They have circumvented the need for a captcha with the "honeytrap" field that is included in the form but hidden from view. If a robot finds the form and enters a value into the hidden field, it kills the email.

    Make sure you haven't deleted that field.

    If it is in place and you are still getting spammed, I dunno.

    I have only used this on my testing server so I haven't received any "real world" email traffic from it yet. I'm hoping it works like described.

    Just checked my site and the "honeytrap" field is there like it is supposed to be. Unfortunately still getting the annoying spam bombardment and having to waste time each day deleting all the new "contacts" that are created in highrise. I had the same problem with the Salesforce web-to-lead, so no great solution out there yet. Maybe spam is just what we have to accept if we want to use web-to-lead services.

    I have the same problem with spambots automatically filling out the form. Need some type of separate field to weed through the bots that fill these forms.
