Is this simple to do ? If so what would I need to do?

Many thanks

What kind of verification code do you want? Do you want to use CAPTCHA (http://www.captcha.net/) or something else? If you were looking to do a CAPTCHA, then here are a few websites that you could learn from:


Hope this helps.

Then probably the above websites would be perfect for you then. If not, you could try searching around Google (or even Hotscript.com) for an already made form mail system with Captcha integrated into it.

Hope this helps.

I have a script that has multiply attachments and all the other scripts don't so I would like to keep this one.

I will cross my fingers, back up and try some of those websites.

Thanks for your help

All that programming code gives me a headache. I am not a programmer.

I have done alot of research trying to find a captcha code to put in my form. The problem I have been having is threefold:

My forms have other "onsubmit" references on the <form line to validate the data entered.
My forms use an separate program to process the forms called "FormTools" so I cannot edit the form processing file.
All the captchas I have seen either try to process the form themselves or give a popup when the captcha is entered correctly. I just want it to allow the form to process if the cpatcha is entered correctly.

Is there a captcha out there that I can embed into an existing form that will simply check to see if the captcha is entered correctly and if it is, let the form process according to my "action=" line? And if not, then popup and error box with the message of my choosing?

You can try http://40secscontactform.com this is a php contact form generator and can be used by a non-programmer. Looks simple and user friendly when on site. There's a video tutorial.
I'm not a programmer either but managed to install the form on my site. There's a spam protection feature in it (uses captcha).
Hope this was useful :)

I appreciate the reply. I was looking for something that did not require a connection to an outside server. I do not mind spending money, but I do not want to spend an annual fee for a program in order to use their server for my forms. If they go out of business, I am hosed.

Recptcha (http://recaptcha.net) would be the one to look at. It's a free service and is really great (they digitize books so that it is easier to read, but not guessable by bots).

Hope this helps.
