Recently one of our users asked, is it possible to capture the IP address of users who submit their form so they can know the origin of those leads. And we said Yes, of course, it is possible.
So through this article, I am going to guide you how you can get the location of a user who submits the form via JD Simple Contact Form.
So if you haven’t installed the form, download and install it on your Joomla website. JD Simple Contact Form is a free Joomla module and comes with a lot of features such as 10+ field types, Recaptcha and Invincible ReCaptcha support, file upload, custom email template and much more. To know how it works, I will recommend you to watch this video tutorial.
