    Question spam problems and solutions

    I am not up to php and still use mailto: as contact.

    So now I get spammed a lot.

    What's the solution?

    Is it php code?

    If so, is there someone can do it for me for a payment?

    thanks

    I have a prebuilt contact form I offer on my website at http://www.owt200x.us/contactform

    With it you can use either OpenCaptcha or a Human Verification (they are already in the contact form, you just need to choose in the config which you want to use)
    there is a small bug right now with the human verification (when javascript is disabled you can submit the form without the verification) but I posted about trying to fix it, so use the OpenCaptcha till i get it fixed

    I can also make custom forms if you need different fields than what I have on the contact form on the site. I do ask for donations for custom forms though.

    If you have any questions, PM me or use the demo contact form.

    letting you know i switched from the human verification script to a math captcha, and there is no bugs (that I know of,) everything works.

    I released 2 versions of the contact form, one with OpenCaptcha and the other has MathCaptcha.

    Basically this is a feature which challenges users before they can post. You've probably seen it, funny looking text in an image which you have to decifer to send a form.
