Any chance that the cPanel FormMail clone will include a Captcha function any time soon?
I'll be sure to nudge the developers again about this next time I see them around, though submitting an official feature request to http://bugzilla.cpanel.net couldn't hurt. In the meantime, the folks over at CMU have created a nifty little script you can use to easily add a Captcha to any form: http://ReCaptcha.net
Thanks David. Yes, please nudge them very hard on this one, a.s.a.p.
Yes, we've got some hosted customers (that control around 1000 accounts) threatening to revolt, as they are getting plenty of nuisance spam in their forms. Some even claim that it is hurting them economically. We've got to supply them with a solution via a server-wide implemention of some sort of capatcha for their forms NOW, YESTERDAY, LAST MONTH!
And thanks but the recaptcha thing will not work for them, as there are some e-commerce forms there which they would not trust to be remotely handled as recaptcha does.
As a personal note: I am surprised to see that cPanel is far-and-away behind the curve on this one. Today as most know, no on-line form should be without some sort of authentication to waylay the avalanche of spam-bots out there.
Offer them this one, should help.
Is there a feature request open on this? Please provide the Bugzilla number or link, so I can add a vote, etc. If no request is in, I will gladly create one.
Yes if you could please do this. I'm swamped right now trying to develop a custom captch routine here, and frankly I've never done the feature request thing, so I really don't know how.
Perhaps if you could please post back with the request number and how we could vote?
Bugzilla (Feature Request) has been added:
You have 5 votes that you can use for up to 5 different bug/feature requests. If you would like cPanel to look into adding Captcha functionality to the existing formmailer, or add a new one, then place a vote.
Only one other vote and comment on this so far, besides mine.
If you would like this feature considered, please make a comment or vote.
