We would like to add a contact form to our site - how is this possible? Can this also be protected using a captcha?

Thanks for your help.

Contact Form 7 is probably the most flexible and customizable contact form plugin for WP, and I believe there is a captcha plugin that it will interface with, although the "honeypot" method is better (you can search from the "install plugins" page).

Thanks - installed Contact Form 7 and got it up and running just fine. A little confused regarding getting the captcha to work...

What do you mean by "honeypot" method?

This Plugin adds option for a "honeypot" field.

Essentially what a honeypot does is create a form field that is invisible to users, but bots still see it and try to fill it out.  If there is any content in that form field, it doesn't process the form.

Great thanks. Now using both "Really Simple CAPTCHA" & "Contact Form 7 Honeypot"  Grin
