Hidden Field as HoneyPot

Jörn created the topic: Hidden Field as HoneyPot

Hi there,
I would like to set a hidden field as kind of a honeypot for spam protection. Is there a way to tell the form to just submit if the hidden field is NOT checked/filled?
Thanks in advance,

Hello Jörn!

Thank you for posting your request!

There surely is a way to achieve this, just a few lines of additional PHP code is required. Please add your hidden field to your form first, and get the value of its name attribute from frontend.

Afterwards open /form-maker/frontend/models/FMModelForm_maker.php file and search with savedata keyword. You will find the following function:
public function savedata($form, $id) {

Add this code right in the beginning of this function:
if ($_POST["field_name"] != '') {

where field_name should be replaced with the value of name attribute of your hidden field. Please see the screenshot below.
Thanks! Have a great day!

Kind regards,
