Why would I need this plugin?
Websites try and prevent bots from spamming form with all sorts of meassures; captcha’s don’t always block these bots and when they come through, your mailbox may get spammed with all sorts or unwanted messages. This plugin will limit the number of messages that come through.
Does this plugin work with other form plugins?
No, we have only built a version that integrates with Contact Form 7, if you need one for another plugin, feel free to contact us, maybe we can work something out.
