"Contact Us" is getting hit with spam e-mails

Recommended Posts

In the past month I've been hit with dozens of user requests which are all spam. For example the most recent comes from svusalmeempvzofGP. Is there a way to add a "check" or disguise my e-mail address to verify these requests are legit? Thanks for your help.

Ken and I have been using it for years.

It's much easier than re-Captcha which can be very frustrating

Sorry for jumping in.
I'm currently using the reCAPTCHA from Google but found the Image Captcha add-on more appealing.

Can I just install this mod and that will be the active one? Or do I have to do something to disable the one from Google first?

Is this mod for registrations or comments?  I've read the description and don't see where it's used.

Go to my website https://www.mullfamilies.co.uk/

Don't complete the registration but click on "Register for a User Account"

You'll see the image captcha and you can do this to get to the regform (don't fill out please)

This stops computer-generated registrations and spam too

You can just instal the mod  https://tng.lythgoes.net/wiki/index.php?title=Image_Captcha_Mod

See the mod description >> Modifies TNGv12 distributed TNG_captcha.php and restores it when mod is removed.

The pros nailed it. Go to https://tng.lythgoes.net/wiki/index.php?title=Image_Captcha_Add-on and pick your icon you want to use on your site. 

Paul

The icon images are viewable from the mod page https://tng.lythgoes.net/wiki/index.php?title=Image_Captcha_Mod

You can expand set 1 and set 2 to see them

I've been using the add-on since TNG9 but this was replaced with the mod

Please note that the Image Captcha is now a Mod. Future updates will be to the Image Captcha Mod only

Michael, thank you.  I'm looking for a way to kill the 40+ spam comments a day I've been getting.  At this point I've turned off registrations.

The mod of course works in conjunction with your site "Contact Us" too (try mine for the same image captcha).

Just install and the spam will stop. This mod is much more user-friendly than re-Captcha for both admins and new registrants.
