Hi all,
Thanks in advance for your help. I used a template, then used the form included with the template. Integrated it with the coffeecup form builder. Works great.

Except....it's getting slammed with SPAM.

I know how to put a re-captcha on the web form builder, but don't see any integration to the site builder.

Do you all have any suggestions? Other solutions?

Here's the very basic form:

Hi Elgie,
How about a simple question to check for robot?

I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

I think I'll give that a try. Site Designer does have variables like that, thnx. I'll let you know how that works. :)

Hi Eric
The question for the captcha thingy is overlaying on mobile devices, one cannot read it.
Also nowadays I think it's better to have the question as an image, preferably a background one, spam bots are getting more and more intelligent and can read questions, but still blind when it comes to images especially background ones.

Eric, I too use Web Form Builder. How would I build the question/answer into my forms? I'm still a novice at so much of this stuff!

Thank you in advance.

Put a question on there asking to add two numbers but spell out the answer.
What is 3+2?
You can use this in a regular expression input
/(\W|^)Five(\W|$)/i

I'm with you on that, Neil. I'm used to (in Dreamweaver) putting PHP code to process the data above the design code containing the form on a page. It isn't clear to me how this works in the CoffeeCup world.

Site Designer is able to handle PHP. It was enabled over a year ago. The only thing you cannot do is add PHP at the top of a page, before the doctype. (I'm no PHP expert, though)

I have used Site Designer, not WFB, for the forms I have in my component repository, Since version 5.3499 we have been able to include a back-end PHP file in SD projects. Looking at 'My Component Shop', the 2nd URL in my signature, you can see a couple of examples. Choose your framework and download what you are interested in.

The 'Basic form' you find there doesn't have any CAPTCHA, but it may be added the same way as in the other form. The Contact form also has a wee cheat sheet.

I just wanted to confirm for others that I found your example at https://mock-up.coffeecup.com/bs-comps/bs-css-quiz.html to be extremely helpful, and I highly recommend it.
