Form Captcha

FormCaptcha helps to protect your forms against spam and automatic submitters. By inserting a captcha into your form, you make sure that a real person fills it in, because captcha image details can only be correctly provided and submitted the form, form fields will get processed otherwise it can be redirected.

Dreamweaver FormCaptcha is distributed as an Adobe Dreamweaver MX (or later) extension, packed in a file named HDW_FormCaptcha.mxp.<br> To install it, you only need to execute that file or use Adobe Extension Manager.<br> Once installed, the extension FormCaptcha can be accessed, after restarting Dreamweaver, via the Menu Option "Insert > Form > Captcha" and also through "Insertbar > Forms Tag > Insert Captcha".

OK, it works. The test.php file provided by this software vendor got me pointed in the right direction.

Can't get it to work in my newly loaded CS6 either.

I know it can be made to work because I had success with it one time in CS3. Not able to make it work today in CS5. Captcha shows up but does not process. Lack of documentation or support from this vendor makes for frustration and wasted time.

On the other hand, their form to mail and form to excel plug ins are 5 stars.

happy to see the captcha image, the verification script and the re-fill of fields into a packaged extension that keeps the code behind the Dreamweaver interface. Pre-sales questions were efficiently answered, working fine up to now, haven’t tried the post-sale support service yet.

There are two parts to this installation. !) getting the captcha image to show up 2) The script that is required to let a user know when a security code is entered correctly or not.

Even though the first part was fairly easy. The second part I was not able to figure out. They do not include a video about this part and took me a long time to try to figure this out myself. In the end I couldn't figure it out and gave me. As a result, I have the captcha image on my form but unable to process it. When I click on the submit button, it sends without even me typing the security code. This negates the whole purpose of adding catcha in the first place. I would not recommend this to anyone.
