Contact Form - Please add email address validation

Canal World

Recommended Posts


We recently updated to v4.7.2.1. One of the first things I did was configure & enable hcaptcha. To my surprise, we're now receiving more in the way of spam through the contact form. Of course, we cannot be sure that it wasn't submitted by a human rather than a bot, but the point remains. 

Is it possible to add functionality so that guests have to validate their email address in order to complete the form submission? Not only will this help to reduce spam, it will also mean that we can be sure that the user is who they say they are and not someone pretending to be another user. Appreciate some sites may want this, so the ability to enable/disable this feature would be good too.

Thank you

Thanks, I will discuss this with our team/owner. Just to confirm, wiil this addon allow us to validate email addresses for guest submissions on the contact page?

Still, more should be done to prevent spam via the contact page by default. We have had to shift away from the Invision ticket system for time-being.
