Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

Nope, the only thing you need is the plugin PHP file (and optionally the ReCaptcha library if using that). Once I’m happy it works as advertised I’ll fix the links and prepare a proper plugin installation file and register it with the central plugin repo.

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

If it is a bot, you may be able to stop it with pap_comconnect.

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

Over the past two and a half months I have been getting an average of 3 to 4 comment spam messages per day, including those from our friend Jones…

Will try out the above suggestions once I got my new site running.

Thanks!

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

If it’s comment spam, rather than contact form spam, then rah_comment_spam might still work. I run it on my site and it keeps a fair bit away.

In my case it is also contact form spam…

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

problem with PHP 8.0

form sends email, but if i try to replay to sender, i get error

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject:  RE: Hinnapäring Alter stuudio kodulehelt

      Sent:     6.09.2021 14:16


The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

      'xxx@gmail.com X-Mailer: Textpattern (com_connect) X-Originating-IP: 83.191.204.95 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit Content-Type: text/plain' on 6.09.2021 14:16

            Server error: 'Invalid recipient'

i noticed that on a ‘‘From” field it has added charset="UTF-8 for addition to senders email address. and that’s why i can’t replay

no problem with PHP 7.4

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

Thanks for the report. Sounds like it’s amalgamating all the headers and sending them as a single reply-to, oops. Will investigate.

Seems to work pretty well. So, no Captchas! Yay! :)
Thank you very much!

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

Can I set up a simple honeypot using com_connect (i.e. just a CSS-hidden field that if filled in by a bot will prevent the message send)? I’m getting a fair amount of spam emails through the contact form on my site.

Don’t want to go down the recapture route unless I have to.

Or any other alternatives? Thanks.

pap_comconnect, posted by Colak here works fine for me.

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

Cool thanks, I should have read the posts above mine 😂

Will install and see what happens.
