Anti-Spam Challenges

This particular option can be found by logging into your site's admin area and going to:
"ProPhoto" > "Customize" > "Contact" > "Anti-spam"

When putting a form on a website, it becomes possible for spammers to spam you with their spamminess. ProPhoto combats this spam with 3 levels of anti-spam protection.

Level 1: Form loaded via AJAX

Your Contact Form doesn’t even exist on the page until your visitor clicks the “Contact” link/button, at which point the Contact Form is loaded from the server, inserted into the page, and revealed.

This means that spambots won’t be find the form unless they first click on the Contact link, which is unlikely.  You can toggle this feature on/off in “ProPhoto” > “Customize” > “Contact Form” > “General Options” in the troubleshooting area.

Level 2: Hidden input form

If a spambot does somehow load your form, there is a hidden input field in the form that is invisible to humans, but visible to spambots reading your code, who think it is part of the form and put in some kind of value. If ‘bots’ put anything in this field, the form knows they must be a spammer and doesn’t let them submit. Tricky, huh?

Level 3: Anti-spam challenges

These anti-spam challenges ask a very simple question of the visitor to prove that they are a human. ProPhoto comes with three standard questions, but you can change these in the ProPhoto customization screen.
