Add one simple shortcode added to your Contact Form 7 form to effectively block form spam bots from spamming your Contact Form 7 forms. It does this with effective techniques, not things that don’t work – like hidden fields, silly questions, irritating Captchas, or more. If an automated bot tries to spam your form, they will get blocked.
It is based on our very successful FormSpammerTrap for Comments plugin, which uses the same techniques to effectively block Contact Form Spammers.
More details about how it all works – and a Contact form that uses the same effective spambot-blocking technique – is on our FormSpammerTrap.com Site. There’s a Contact form there that has never been successfully ‘spam-botted’ (defined as submitting many comments within a very short period of time).
Download the zip file, uncompress, then upload to
/wp-content/plugins/directory. Or download, then upload/install via the Add Plugin page.
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress. Activation will check to ensure that Contact Form 7 is installed and activated.
