Re: captcha support

Hi Phil,

We have anti-spamming measures built in, so you shouldn't actually need a captcha. Are you receiving spam through the form, or are you just trying to act preemptively?

Re: captcha support

I was definitely getting spam from the ce4 pages contact form. i assumed (I guessed incorrectly) that the same structure was used in backlight. yes I am acting preemptively, to the point that I have disabled the contact form for backlight. I will re-enable and see what happens if you think I shouldn't have issues with the backlight contact form.

Let me know if the same anti-spamming was in ce4 please, as that did get spam...

thanks
PK

Re: captcha support

Ben has put measures in place to prevent spambots being able to hijack the form. I'm not fully versed on the details, but we have had no reports of spamming that I am aware of.

I haven't seen any spam coming through my contact page. Really happy about that!
