Support » Plugin: Honeypot for Contact Form 7 » Unfortunately a lot of spam

  • Resolved benrich1302


    unfortunately still a lot of SPAM comes in via the linked contact form (see link).
    Do you know why?
    It is currently designed like this:
    <label>Ihr Name:(optional)</label> [text your-name]
    <label>Ihre E-Mail Adresse:*</label> [email* your-email]
    <label>Ihre Telefonnummer:(optional)</label> [tel tel-15]
    [honeypot erdbeere-489 validautocomplete:true move-inline-css:true]
    <label>Ihre Nachricht:</label>[textarea your-message]
    [submit “Nachricht absenden”]

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi @benrich1302, apologies about the late reply. Is the spam you’re getting in German? If not, try renaming the honeypot field to something in English.

    i.e. change:
    [honeypot erdbeere-489 validautocomplete:true move-inline-css:true]

    [honeypot email-489 validautocomplete:true move-inline-css:true]

    That way when a bot is looking for fields to fill out, if it is using English terms for field names to look for, it will have a better chance of finding this one and be trapped.
