Add-On Type(s)



Honey pot captcha support for Freeform, Safecracker, EE Member Registration, EE Member Login, Zoo Visitor Registration, ProForm, Solspace User Registration, and EE comment forms. Validates to make sure that a field that is moved off of the page is left empty upon form submission.

In your form, add the honey pot field. Make sure the name of the form field matches the name in the Hon-ee Pot Captcha settings.

<li class="screen-reader">
  <label for="honeepot">Don't put anything here</label>
  <input type="text" name="honeepot" id="honeepot" />

In my CSS, I have a class to move things off of the page:

.screen-reader {
  display: block !important;
  left: -9999px !important;
  position: absolute !important;

Simply the best CAPTCHA add-on available for EE2. Invisible and effective, it has all the spam-blocking advantages of a CAPTCHA with none of the user-aggravating drawbacks.
