About the App

How does it work?

The plugin uses clever security idea called "honeypot". It sets a special "trap" field in signup. Regular email field is hidden with styles so real people can't see it, but spam bots still try to fill it. This plugin sets trap fields for spam bots, while letting real humans in.

Instead of hidden email field Honeypot plugin shows randomly names field so people can signup easily and won't notice any changes. It's a complex technical solution that isn't visible for the regular users

This plugin also secures the form on Contact page using the same approach.

Is it complex to install and configure?

Not at all. Use admin panel to install modules as any other package - SocialEngine signup form will be updated automatically. If you have modified signup form or use any 3rd party signup plugins/widgets - conflicts might appear. They require one or two hours of customization (purchased separately).

You can turn the plugin off using admin panel if required.

Do I need to keep reCaptcha?

No, you can turn it off to make signup easier for users.

Will Honeypot help to avoid all kind of spam?

Honeypot plugin stops automated spam submissions only (signups). Unfortunately, real person still can signup and submit any posts manually. But in this case, it's easy to ban the person and moderate posts.

Note, this plugin won't stop spam bots that already registered, so it's important to remove all of them. We recommend to use Moderator Toolbox plugin for this.

Will my visitors need to guess any rebus to signup?

No, the look of signup form will remain the same. Nobody will notice any difference.


Warning: Honeypot replaces standard signup form. If you use any widget/plugin that modify signup most likely conflict will appear that will cause issues.
