Blocking spam

The use of robots or bots on the internet has become even more common nowadays. A well-designed bot is capable of sending an incredible number of messages. The bot is able to open links and fill out forms automatically. Bots have evolved to bypass the riddles set to prevent forms from being submitted. When designing a website, it must be taken into account that it is possible to send a lot of spam automatically through a form placed on the website.

Contact Form 7 and WPForms

Almost without exception, WordPress homepages have a contact page that also has a contact form. Contact Form 7 and WPForms are the most common plugins for setting up a contact form on WordPress sites. However, it is often not immediately taken into account that when the bots find the form, the amount of spam can be surprisingly large. Important and genuine messages sent by people get buried in spam. The longer the problem is allowed to continue, the greater the negative consequences.

Prevent spam sent through your website's form as soon as possible. There are many solutions to this. It can be difficult to find a user-friendly anti-spam method. You don't want to give the user of the form unnecessary extra puzzles to solve before the form can be sent. So always keep your users in mind so that you don't needlessly give them more tasks. Using the form should be easy. Do not add additional calculation tasks or picture puzzles to the form. From the user's point of view, the best solutions work invisibly in the background.
