Hoping someone will help me. I'm in over my head with the ABVFP stuff, and when I put in a support ticket all I got was links to more info and tutorials over my head. My websites work fine. Contact forms created in form wizard all work fine - (so long as I have no constraints on validation, another problem.) However, I'm receiving bogus contacts forms with gibberish in many of the fields and websites buried in the gibberish. It's getting harder to sort out the real contacts.
Captcha seems the only answer, but when I downloaded the newer Blue Voda 11 version and remade the forms using captcha, all I got were errors. When testing the forms, it sent me to the error page everytime, which I wrote using the ##errror## thing. It just says "wrong code." Also when I added the email editbox and chose "email" under validation, it won't accept any form unless they include an email, which I don't really require since many people are afraid of being spammed.
I actually went through tons of threads and waded through the ABVFP info including printing out the 16 pages of directions, but by step 8, I was stymied when the datatbase user and password came up invalid even though I'd just created them! But truthfully I don't like to fool around in Cpanel much at all, I don't even know for sure what a database is or why I was creating one etc.. Now I think I've messed stuff up in my cpanel.
Is there any simple solution? For now I took off the captcha and the form is working again, but I have not solved the spam problem or figured out how to have the processor ignore gibberish contacts.
Thanks ahead, Chris
