Newsletter 3.5.9 and the antibot option

By June 5, 2014One Comment

Some Newsletter users experienced a lot of fake subscription and asked me to add a captcha. To add a captcha can be a problem, since custom forms won’t display it breaking the subscription process for who use them.

So I tried another way: I added a subscribe anti-bot technique which uses JavaScript. Of course an attacker can easily by-pass it, but since most of the fake subscription are generated by bots trying to inject keywords and links into site, that system should be enough for most if us.

To enable the anti-bot feature see the subscription steps panel. This is not a promise, only an attempt!
