Captcha feature

Captcha feature

I am currently using Universal Email on a form that I designed in DW CS4. However, I am swamped with spam. I would like to use the Captcha feature that comes with CSS Form Builder without using Form Builder to design the form. Is this possible? I like my forms designed in table format.

You can do it... use Form Builder to create a form with CAPTCHA on a sample page.

Then you can copy/paste the captcha image to your form and check out how the server validations are added to validate the captcha.

The captcha image should display on any page, and from there it is just a matter of applying the server validation correctly to work with your form.

Newbie

Unfortunately I am very new to this. I don't understand how to "check out the server validation". That is why I purchased this software.

Double click on the "Server Validation" Server behavior in the server behaviors window to look at the validation that is applied. You can copy and paste using the syntax applied in the sample you create.

Where is the Captch option?

"You can do it... use Form Builder to create a form with CAPTCHA on a sample page."

I can't see how to do that in the wizard, neither in the doc.

Thanks

Found it

That was very hard to find and not at all explained anywhere in the varioous documents or help that I could find. The Form Builder interface itself is ... erm ... not very good.

Even better would be to separate Captcha out from the Form Builder product if possible. It's enough of an issue for enough people to warrant a separate product.

IMHO

I agree, this is very hard to figure out. I too have several sites with contact forms that I had created in DW CS4 without Form Builder but wish to add the Captcha feature to them to avoid spam.

I have created a blank PHP page and added a Simple Contact Form I stripped away all the fields except for the Captcha stuff. I wound up with 132 lines of code.

I look at the Server Behaviors and there are none. There are however about 50 variables.

So, is there a really good tutorial somewhere to help digest what is needed to add Captcha to an EXISTING form that will make sense to even the noobiest of noobs?

captcha issue

I have been trying to make this work for two days now. I THINK I might have it working, however it is hard to say for sure just from testing the form because the captcha is so hard to read. My form is very long and I am sure I will lose any customer who types it in wrong. Is there any way to make the image at least lighter?

There is a list of all of the editable options for the captcha in this thread:

showthread.php?t=813&highlight=captcha+settings

you can adjust the noise levels and colors to make it more readable.
