    Hi I am looking to add an additional security question to my Enfold Contact Form – something like:
    “which is bigger 3, 5 or 7?” and have 3 answers in a dropdown choice/box. And make it compulsory!
    Is this possible and would you have a piece of code for this?


    I went ahead and included a checkbox as compulsory – so this might work?


    Unfortunately – it didn’t work! When I send a form it requires the tick box but the hackers are able to bypass this.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi nolka,

    Are you using reCapthca? You might want to consider using it.

    Here are the docs for you:

    Hi Victoria
    Not sure this provides the answer I am looking for?
    I want to know how to add an additional field into the Enfold Contact Form because even though I added the checkbox as a compulsory field – the hacker simply bypassed it and returned the outcome to false instead of true? Not sure how they can do this but if you at I try to send the form it wont let us do so without ticking the checkbox.
    Any Ideas?


    Any updates on this from the team?



    the hacker simply bypassed it a

    We don’t really know how they get around it, but they probably have a script that deletes the checkbox before filling up the fields with the details, then send it. Or they’ve found a way to manipulate the validation script. Either way, activating the Google reCAPTCHA option should help in this case as @victoria suggested because the form will be validated not only in the client-side but also in the server-side, which makes the contact form more secure. You should also install security plugins such as WordFence to block unwanted traffic from the site and for additional protection.

    Best regards,
