Time will tell

By ppe29 on June 6, 2023

Been using CF7 for years and never received spam on them until literally 10 seconds after I was telling someone how I never get spam on my CF7 forms. I paid for Akismet and got a spam within 2 minutes, so I got my money back on that. The logic behind these solutions seems to align with what I thought would work before I started researching, so we'll see. I think the biggest help will be the ability to set a human timer, but the honeypot field should also add a nice road block, in theory. Time will tell...

Fast, simple, user-friendly tool

We moved to Honeypot after successful testing. Fast, simple, user-friendly tool.

Took some fiddling but works amazing

Before it was better

It worked better before, now the attackers go past it and there is a lot of spam.

works like it should

Lots of Spam

By andrekelling on December 13, 2022

didn't help to prevent attacker sending spam a lot. just not sending the form when honeypot is filled is too much of information for an attacker.

not working

the Plugin works got and so far it catched some spamy mails. But some are also going trough, are there any ways i can modify my Honeypot to filter more spam mails? thats my setup rn: [honeypot email validautocomplete:true move-inline-css:true timecheck_enabled:true]

Not working at all

By rkingisl on May 27, 2022

I receive about 10–20 spam messages a day. I've had this installed since mid April, and it says "honeypot has stopped 0 spam submissions". This is with the time check option enabled and the id changed, recommended in the documentation.
