But a second hook would be needed to add the code to check for emails and url's, if those options were wanted. That is more in-line with not changing the core code and is probably a better solution for the community edition. Actually, it might be a good addition to the stock shop. A generalized package that would protect any form in the shop by just calling a hook with the forms name, or something like that. I thought a bit more on it...I'm not sure how these spammers actually work (in osc)... In (eg) wordpress I know there is a whole industry that targets drive by spamming, using software. Unfortunately, for a period of time over a decade ago I was a part of a similar industry :( In other, less popular, software (eg osc) I've always assumed that someone gets paid a dollar a day to sit there all day finding form and filling them out and submitting. Do we think that software is being used to target (eg) the contact_us form in osc, or do we think its software? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
