Hi- to help our clients so they don't receive hundreds of spam emails, how do we add a captcha to the email capture form on the home page?

Captcha for Email form(14 posts)
I too wanted to add this feature. I have downloaded the capture plugin from the link above and have uploaded it to my site. what do i do now in order to get it to display a capture???
We do not provide plugin related supports, Contact to plugin support form they will provide you support.
With respect, it is not good enough to simply say "contact the plugin support". They do not supply support, and the coding required to make it work is highly advanced.
Most of your users who have paid you for this theme would agree that having anti-spam on a front page form is mandatory - it must be done - because their clients will receive thousands of spam messages. It is not an option or something 'nice to have'. These days it is a 'must have'.
So can I respectfully suggest that you implement a captcha of some kind into the Theme options panel, or else provide a simple plugin link where very simple coding can be done to make it work.
I stopped using this theme because of this - started getting spam all the time via the lead capture form..This is a major flaw in this theme
I also mentioned this in another post that was closed and you did say that this would be addressed and available in an update to the theme.
Have you done this??? Are you going to???
We will look for some possible solution and add it in the next update.
It is ridiculous to not have anti-spam on a front page contact form! I assumed you would have that built in the admin.
I have downloaded the Captcha plugin and it was very easy to install and setup. I'm sure you know the Captcha plugin is from BestWebSoft. For the Captcha plugin to work on a contact form it is also necessary to install the contact form plugin from BestWebSoft.
Once both are installed it is easy to Enable CAPTCHA on the: Login form, Register form, Lost password form, Comments form, and the Contact form.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Captcha only works on the Contact form supplied by BestWebSoft.
IT DOES NOT WORK ON YOUR EMAIL CAPTURE FORM ON THE HOME PAGE!!!
One of the big selling points of your theme is the Email Capture Form on the home page displayed in the viewers face. My clients are getting spammed big time! So now I have to shutdown one the IMPORTANT features that was a major reason for me and my clients purchasing your theme. They are not "happy campers".
I am a Warrior on the Warrior Forum and it would not be very good publicity for you to receive extremely negative feedback on your theme there.
WE, THE BUYERS, NEED AN IMMEDIATE FIX FOR THIS NOW!
Please be patient, The update of the Theme is coming out within the next 3 days.
Very good to hear. I'll cool down.
It's just frustrating when clients are jumping down our throats as well.
I purchased my theme as a Warrior, how will I get the theme updates?
Ya, I do agree. Clients can get a little frustrated.
Start of the Month is a little hectic over here, since we had a new theme release. Anyways, the update is coming within the next 3 days.
I will ask Mervik to Update your Members Area, you can download the updated theme from there. Also, If you have an InkThemes Members Account, do let me know your username and I would manually add the Theme in your InkThemes Account.
I don't have an InkThemes Members Account. I purchased the theme at the Warrior forum. I didn't receive info for the Members Area from Mervik. I need that so I can access the update. Thanks
Theme updated with captcha, download it from the InkThemes Members Area, If you don't have access to the inkthemes members area, Do send an email to email@example.com requesting the same and we would setup the account for you.
Well done guys
Thanks for modifying the theme to include captcha
