Support » Plugins and Hacks » Contact Form 7 SPAM FILTERING WITH AKISMET and your-name placeholder

  • Hi,

    I am attempting to add spam filtering to my ContactForm7 form and I am referencing this article to do so: http://contactform7.com/spam-filtering-with-akismet/

    In the article they explain:

    akismet:author
    Add this option to the field that accepts the name of the sender.
    Example:

    [text* your-name akismet:author]

    My form is set up as:

    [text* your-name placeholder "Name"]

    To add the spam filtering to my form. I have changed my code to:

    [text* your-name placeholder "Name" akismet:author]

    When I update my form to this code, the name field disappears from my form. I moved the askimet code before the placeholder. Same problem.

    In the instance of a form field with a placeholder name, how do I add the akismet filter to the field?

    Thank you,
    Mark
