Hi,

We are using JD Simple contact form. If there’s any possibility to block this? Please let us know and we like to inform you with this so you know what’s happening with your very nice module.

Today they surpassed our contact form with spam I am wondering how do they surpass it while Google “I’m not a robot” catpcha is ON(used)?

The email address seems to be already blocked so we are probably not the only one:

Hi Wella,

Thanks for the submission. Let us run some tests on this and see what we can do to add further spam protection in here.

Hi,
Is there any update on this issue? I am also using the JD Simple Contact Form on my website and I noticed that I can send a message even when the "I'm not a robot" is not checked. There is no difference whether this checkbox is checked or not. Under plugins section only the reCaptcha is active, invisible reCaptcha is disabled. The generated key is for reCAPCTHA v2.

Best Regards,
Adam

Hey Adam,

I just tested the form with both the captcha plugins and you're right. The form submits when the captcha is not filled but the message is not sent, it's just not showing the warning after submitting the form without a captcha.

And in case of Ajax submission, everything's working fine.

I'm going to fix this in the next update and let you know about that here.

Thanks,
Akash

Hi Wella,

Some advance bots can still pass the captcha easily. One thing you can try is to increase the security preferences in your Google Captcha settings.

Probably it'll do the trick.

Thanks.

Hi Akash,

In my case the form submits and the message is always sent, in both cases: with Ajax enabled and without it.

Best regards,
Adam
