Much better! This one works nicely for the offending txp:com_connect_option />, and the HTML source code for all other fields in use is as expected. I dunno if the form actually submits / sends correctly as localhost here is not configured to do that.

There should be no changes in this part.

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

BTW – Does anyone have a take about this issue ? Bug or some kind of misunderstanding on my side?

Whatever syntax for the the com_connect_select and com_connect__option I try, this results in the same br0ken subject line. even the most basic one:

<txp:com_connect_select class="" delimiter="," label="Subject" name="subject" options="{Select one},Something,Or other,And more" />

So right now, I have removed that custom subject line, and insert/output the value of the com_connect_select in the body of the message (this works fine). On the end-user side, I use AppleScript to extract that out of the body and filter the message as needed. Much less efficient though. Or maybe I should revert to com_connect v. 4.6. That did work OK, iirc.

(and I’ll probably add this to the Github issues when I have some time later this week)

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

Hi,

I am constantly getting spam from a person called “Eric Jones” (eric.jones.z.mail@gmail.com, ericjonesonline@outlook.com) on my contact form. Is there any way to prevent this? I have already considered disabling the contact form altogether, because of the frequency.

Thank you very much,

Alex

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

You too, huh? *shakes fist at Eric Jones*

You could try ext_captcha. I’ve not compiled it yet but in Txp 4.7+ you can just drag the .php file into your Plugins panel’s Browse… button to install it.

If you want to use hCaptcha, that’s it. The docs explain how to set it up. For ReCaptcha you’ll need to copy up the additional ReCaptcha library to a directory called textpattern/vendors/ReCaptcha (so you have two ‘ReCaptcha’ dirs in a row). Then follow the instructions in the plugin.

It’s experimental at the moment so any feedback would be welcome. But I’ve had it working on client sites and it seems to be holding up.

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

I wouldn’t mind being spammed by Erik Jones – he is one of my favorite drivers – but yeah, this sounds annoying.

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

Thanks, but I wouldn’t like bothering regular people with Captchas. Since our friend Eric seems to be the only annoying person out there (which I guess is a good thing), I had hoped that one could just add some blacklist words in the config file, like his name and/or e-mail address. :)

Edit: hCaptcha seems to be working smoothly, I will give it a try since there was no quest for me when signing up.

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

Yeah, I don’t like captchas at all. It’s a last-ditch attempt, imo.

It’s pretty easy to write a module for com_connect that’ll scan the content (sender, subject, body) for people’s names or words and flag them. The pap_contact_cleaner plugin shows an example of how to link into the com_connect spam engine (albeit that uses hidden fields).

How configurable such a plugin ultimately becomes is up to the plugin author.

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

Seems to work well. The “Download this plugin” link did not work, however. I have downloaded the ext_captcha.php file then, instead of a zip file. Do I need the composer- and manifest.json files?
