If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I’ve been getting spam via the contact form bundled with the Brightbox theme. Is there any way to add an extra level of security such as Captcha, or similar, to rid me of this pernicious evilness?
The easiest way would be to use an alternative like Contact Form 7: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/contact-form-7/
Use that to replace the built in contact form and you can easily add some extra steps to combat bots and spam.
Thanks Devin, I’ll have a look at it. It would be nice if something could be integrated into the themes, so that we don’t end up having to install multiple plugins that may or may not work with themes, and may or may not get upgraded.
