HI Guys, I'm receiving too many spam or bot emails from my contact us form. 10 to 15 emails per day. I only knew its some kind of the bot attack script. I'm completely new here on oscommerce. I read couple of the forums about recaptcha or honeypot but honestly its way beyond from my skills may be. I need some simple solutions or need the guru guy who told me what should I edit on my code or file to make it work. This is the contact page where I faced the issue. http://www.randpaseka.com/catalog/contact_us.php I request to guru's to help me to fix it ASAP. I already stuck since a week. Cheers
Sorry................ i cannot . Let me trow up an idea and let YOU and the rest either give it a go... or reject it by good argumentation. We use in oscommerce for all links: - tep_href_link What if use for the above listed pages: - tep_gen_href_link ( where _gen means: Generated link) So if DIRECTLY goto contact_us.php and there is no KEY provided that matches. You already know it is a bot. Give it a thought. I not say it go cover all problems. Now i really stop.
This addon prevents multiple emails from being sent through the forms on the site by adding a hidden challenge. Sending emails through the forms is a favorite thing to do by spammers. This has traditionally been handled by Googles Recaptcha code but that causes too much of a challenge in many cases and can easily frustrate your customers. This code doesn't present a challenge for the customer at all. The checking is done without the customer even knowing it. The code will work in any version of oscommerce but the instructions are just for the Community Edition and just for the contact us page (due to time constraints).
