Spam proof email form, without PHP or other such language

Posted 09 October 2017 - 06:01 AM

I have access to the Wordpress site of my place of work, and am trying to implement a contact form. Unfortunately, I do not have access to the hosting server, so I cannot use PHP or any server side language to validate against spam.

Is there any way I can implement a spam proof contact form just through Wordpress, or solely with HTML and Javascript? Or would I need to get access to the host?

Thanks.

No such thing as SPAM-proof, but you can install a recaptcha or some other rudimentary validation. And you don't need access to the host, you can access the files thru the WordPress editor.

Yeah, I know. Spam will always find a way. But that's the kind of thing I was looking for. I'll take a look into that.

Thanks.

I'm not certain I have full access to the Wordpress site, and there's no clear indication as to what role I am assigned to. As such I don't think I can access the files, nor install plugins. Looks like I may have to request higher privileges.

Yes.. to utilize the plugins you would need access or the pipeline to make recommendations.
