WP-SpamFree plugin

Just like the spam you receive in your email’s inbox, robots scrounge the web for web sites for the opportunity to submit their messages using your site’s comment function. WP-SpamFree is a plugin that helps reduce robot spam. All you have to do is enable it and the plugin does the rest.

The plug-in also provides a simple contact form that you can place on your site as well. Once enabled, enter the following using the HTML editor:

<!–spamfree-contact–>

You can even customize elements of  the form – just select WP-SpamFree from under the Plugins menu.

Creating a simple contact form

Contact FormOne the first things we want to do is provide a way for our visitors to contact us. The plugin WP-SpamFree, which protects you from spambots (an automated process where a computer can submit spam through your comments or contact forms), provides a simple contact form for us to use .

Adding the form is easy! After you have activated WP-SpamFree, create a Page (Contact) and in the editing window select the HTML tab. Type in whatever text you want before the form and then paste in the following:

<!–spamfree-contact–>

Once you save and view your page, you’ll have a form! You can customize some elements of  the form by viewing the WP-SpamFree plugin’s settings.
