Hi,
I installed your module on the website of two customers who are receiving many spam emails.
I tried to enable Captcha on both but the form is not displayed correctly.
Could you help me solve the problem?
If so, let me know what information you need and if you need to log in to the site.
thanks
Cesare

Hi Cesare,

Could you please confirm which version of the JD Simple Contact Form you are using and please provide a screenshot or a link to the site as to what exactly the error is so we can help you specifically.

Thanks,
Nishtha

Hi Nishtha,
the version I'm using is the following "mod_jdsimplecontactform_v1.3".
The module was installed on two sites:
www.studiocontardi.com/contatti
www.ludwigtekne.com/contatti.html
Thanks
Cesare

Hi,

Please update the contact form version to v1.4 there we have added invisible ReCaptcha, that should also help!

Thanks,
Nishtha

Hey Cesare77 are you using Google CAPTCHA_RECAPTCHA V2.0?
There have been huge amounts of exploit bots hitting sites recently and I have found that enabling V2.0 RECAPTCHA is the best solution, you can create youir site keys here:
https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/v3.html

Just install the plugin if not in your plugins, then use the link above to create your keys and insert them into the plugin on your site and enable, then just go to global config in your Joomla admin and set the CAPTCHA_RECAPTCHA as your default.

I have found this to be the most robust way to prevent form field exploits.

It's annoying and hard to combat, also ensure you are using an encrypted SSL and make sure your site is up-to-date with all your extensions, etc.

If you can be anything in this world, be kind!
