Join Jen Kramer for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating CAPTCHA for the contact form, part of Joomla! 3 Essential Training: 2 Modules Components Extensions & Templates.
- So here we are on our contact page on our website…and this is just a simple form…that you can fill out…and it will email whatever you type in here…to the email address on file.…One of the downsides to this particular form…is that there are tons of robots and spammers out there…who will come through this contact form quite regularly…and fill it out.…And before long you'll be receiving…many, many messages a day…almost all of which are garbage.…So one of the ways…that you can get around this particular problem…is making use of a function called CAPTCHA.…
This is the funny characters or the little codes or things…that you see sometimes at the bottom of these forms…that you have to type in that little code or something…to prove that you're a human…in order to be able to submit the form.…Joomla! does support this…and it supports the Google Standard for this…so I'm going to show you how to set that up…here in this video.…So we're going to start by going to the back-end of Joomla!…and we're going to go to Extensions, Plugin Manager.…
