Secure and Accessible Contact Form for WordPress

As a site owner with several sites, one of the most annoying things that I have encountered is trying to use a contact form on a site that allows for a lot of spam to get through. One of the best solutions for this that I have found is a really neat, simple and thorough contact form solution written by Mike Cherim and Mike Jolley.

The Secure and Accessible PHP Contact Form v.2.0WP is a WordPress plugin that really secures your contact form on your site. This plugin has a ton of features, like an easy configuration page that allows for simple setup for your WordPress blog. The Secure and Accessible PHP Contact Form also is written to be extremely accessible, so that screen readers and other accessible technology devices can still use it.

This form also has 16 security measures in place to help alleviate spam and hacking of the form, which is great. One of the problems that I still see while surfing the internet is people that put their email address directly on their site. While Google and other search engines use spiders to index your site, so do spammers. However they use spiders to harvest email addresses that are hard coded into the site, thereby allowing them to spam your email address.

I have been using this form now for several years on my sites, and I can honestly say that I have never received a spam contact through this form. It works like a charm, and I hope you find it useful for your site as well.

You can get the Secure and Accessible PHP Contact Form v.2.0WP from Mike Cherim’s Green Beast site, and find lots of configuration settings, tutorials, and support on his site.
