Hi-

 

I currently have a form that people fill out to join the mailing list.  I'm getting bombarded with spammers using the form to send useless information.  I notice the spammers fill in a bogus zip code that can't possibly be from our users.  Where can I intercept the form, validate the zip code, and not allow it to post if the zip code is erroneous?

 

Thanks,

-Tom

Hi Cica,

What soho build are you using?

There has been a few validating and non-spaming items added lately

that may help like captcha.

None to check for a zip code.

I'm using v4.9.4 r21 and I have the Form Submit Replacement plugin v1.5 by Leh-Wen Yau.  I'd like to avoid captcha if possible, but would appreciate any advice.

 

Thanks,

-Tom

That is the latest stable build.
In your form manager there is: 
Spam Preferences
Check to add a form verification field to forms to prevent spam bots.
(This is the captcha).
And:
Block submissions that contain multiple link urls.  
Other than that you may try blocking there ip addresses from the senders in your cpanel.
