Spam bots sending mail to the contact despite reCaptcha being activated

Post by Ankha » Thu Jul 12, 2018 7:33 am

I have the same issue since a week: spam bots sending mail to the contact despite reCaptcha being activated. I looked for a way to add a passphrase, but it's not a built-in option, and I don't have much time to change the source code (and I'm not sure that this documentation is still up-to-date nor appropriate).
Activating the contact form only for registered users is a bugger, but well.

(I'm am new on this forum, so hello! But why is it so slow? Submitting this page took 20 seconds ...)

Reason: Split from the topic f=714&t=958667. In the future, for your issues, please create separate topics. Even though the symptom of the problem may be the same, the cause could be different as the environments are different.
