Contact Us Form: Image Verification Code

Updated On: Jun 05, 2006 (23:42:00)
The contact us email form now includes an image verification code that a user must enter in order to send an email through the form. The Image Verification Code will help to keep spammers from using automated tools to send emails to you through the contact us form. The user simply enters the randomly generated six diget code that is displayed in the image. This verifies that they are a real person, and not an automated spam tool.
Publishing email addresses on a Web Page

Updated On: Jun 05, 2006 (00:10:00)
Specialized web robots are constantly searching for new web pages that contain email addresses. If your email address is listed on a web page it will be picked up eventually.

Some of these robots look for any available address while others search for particular types of pages. This is why you may get spam with customized subjects like "I saw your resume online" and a link to your home page.


1. Limit how many pages contain your address

Think twice before listing any email address on a web page. Does it really need to be there? Using role-based addresses like "webmaster@" may be a better bet.

2. Use the built-in features of the PowerActiveSite system to list email addresses

The PowerActiveSite system will automatically encode email addresses in a special language that automated spam tools cannot read for the following areas: Officers page, Commitees Page, Guest Book listing page, and the office. These pages are safe from email collection by spam robots.

3. Use contact forms for your web site.

Contact forms will hide the email address while allowing users to send email to you directly through the web site. The PowerActiveSite system features a built-in contact us form for this purpose.

4. Encode your email addresses using the following javascript code

Cut and paste this code into the spot that your email address should appear using the source view. Replace email-username with the part of the email address to the left of the @ symbol. Replace email-domain with the part of the email address to the right of the @ symbol.
