contact form filtering spam


Recommended Posts

at present there's an email validation feature for contact_us.php


how would one go about validating enquiry as well?


such as, allowing only letters, numbers, punctuation and $



it's becoming quite tiresome having spammers from overseas type in chinese with html - they're wasting valuable moments of my life having to read and delete this rubbish, as they're becoming more frequent day by day because they know there's no error checking on my forms (if it happens to me, it can happen to any of you ;) )!


i'm wondering if something like:

if (eregi("^[A-Z0-9._$%-]{2,6}$", $enquiry))


would work? (maybe not, i just copied that from a different email validation form i use that i merged into my shop)
