Simple captcha alternative
I'm using Web form builder version 2.5. So it doesn't support any captcha that works anymore. (it worked with captcha 1 which stopped in 2018).
The form has a dropdown menu and another has radio buttons. This used to be enough to stop spam bots because they couldn't fill them out but it hasn't worked. I don't know whether it actually is a bot or a human doing it.
So my question is what else can I use?
Could I put a text field in and hide it? How would I get this to prevent the form submitting? like a honey pot for a bot to fill out but which a human couldn't see. I'm guessing simply hiding the submit button if this hidden field was filled out wouldn't work for a bot?
A simple what is 2+2? Type question, which obviously wouldn't stop human spammers?
Any suggestions please
You may also find alternatives if you google CAPTCHA, e.g. there are some with images and you are asked to select the ones showing something specific.
Use this to match 6
What's 3 + 3?
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Thank you Inger also. I will see if it helps things
If you do it via Eric's method above which only involves a single character answer
/\b[black|BLACK|Black]\b/ I believe it will match any of the letters in black, so you don't want to do that.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
