Strip out hyperlinks in submitted forms

Post by DaveOzric » Wed May 16, 2018 3:09 pm

Hello, the scammers have upped their game again. Either it's real people filling out the forms or Google's recaptcha is been figured out.

Is there any method in Joomla or using something like Admin Tools to strip out any hyperlinks in the form submissions?

Try adding filters to form fields or use strip_tags() before saving form data.
