Spam protection plugin for contact and comment forms
Lately we have seen an increase of automated spam messages sent from the contact forms, therefore developed a web application that generates a 4 letter code preventing automated submissions.
The plugin works by generating a photo with a random letters that cannot be read by automated systems making sure that each form is submitted manually.
Technology used to generate anti-spam photos
The system uses high quality TrueType fonts to generate the anti-spam image. Each letter is randomly skewed and rotated for better protection. We can adjust the size of the photo generated, which font is used, also colour and letter distribution.
We have designed the plugin having website visitor in mind choosing only four well readable letters that could be entered without frustration.
