I know spam bots can be a right spammers, but getting 7 forms is a bit over the top. can there be something done about this. i have had 7 submitted forms in the last month. i am getting at least 1 - 2 a week.

Hi smithy,

The best way to prevent spam bots from filling in your contact forms is to add a Captcha using a Wufoo form.

By default, all forms in Wufoo are set to automatic protection, but you can also set the Captcha system to always show or never show the Captcha on your form as well. You can find this feature's options under the form settings tab when you edit your form: Edit --> Form settings.

I hope that helps!

From what I've read, smithy, you could add a Captcha to your form, but, along with its html code, you'd need to be able to upload a php file to your site. Not sure that capability will ever happen with Yola. It would be nice though (hint, hint).

Can yola put something like forms on the my yola so we can have the html code and have like the Captcha and the tools to do the form?? So it will be a bit like wufoo but yola style!
