Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 Honeypot » Tabbing between fields works just fine.

  • Resolved nspeer


    I have this plugin on a couple of sites. Spam starting getting through just fine, so I decided to test it like a bot would.

    I tabbed right past the “invisible” fields and was able to get through every single time. It didn’t seem to make any appreciable difference.

    Do I have a setting wrong or something?

    Still no answer. My client is getting upset with the spam.

    TabIndex is set to -1, so that regular users don’t tab onto a blank field and wonder where their cursor went. If the honeypot field is inserted at the bottom of the form, that’s not such an issue, but there’s no way to guarantee that.

    You can modify the HTML output of the field using filters though, so you can adjust that and give it a try to see if it helps.
