Contact Form Captcha?

Post by princeaugust » January 4th, 2019, 8:38 pm

I wondered what way is there to secure my Contact form in Green Lantern theme. I use other methods to secure comments to block spam with askimet but the Contact form seem to be isolated and I wanted to add a Captcha 2 protection there as some spam is coming in more frequently now. Here is the URL for reference.

Maybe I am missing something obvious.

Hello,

Please update your theme With the latest version 1.4.3 in the new version we added GDPR for secure the contact form.

Before updating the theme, make a child theme of the theme you have this time, then update it.

Thanks.

How do I update it? My wordpress admin panel shows no updates (I update every week all updates). I have made a fresh child theme as requested. Do I update the child or original? Not done this before. Current GLP theme is 1.3. Wordpress fully updated past v5.

OK I found the update for 1.4 on my support account. So I just use wordpress to install it as a new theme? Do I delete the original theme first or does it just overwrite it? I assume I keep the child theme until after installation to active changes. I have not done this before so please forgive my questions.

Hi,

Firstly make a child theme of the theme you have this time v1.3 then update your main theme when you update the theme this will automatically overwrite your theme.

That's it.

If any query please let us know.

Thanks.

I have the child active and I tried to upload the 1.4 theme but it failed because the folder with 1.3 is already there. So I want to CONFIRM I delete the 1.3 original (not child) and then upload the zip file into its place. Then reactive the original child theme which should connect to 1.4. There is no 'update' feature otherwise.

I have deleted the original green lantern theme after making another theme active temporarily, then I uploaded the new version of GLP and activated and registered it (it seems to require me to register it constantly every activation). However the difference between 1.3 and 1.4 does not seem to address the topic of a captcha for the Contact Us form. No difference seems to exist at all. Where is the option to turn on a captcha 2 there to secure the form?

Hello,

In the new version, there is an option for GDPR.

For adding the Captcha you can use this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-captcha/
