Hi gang! I've combed the past archives and could not find an answer to my question. So, like many of you, I'm now getting commenting spam bots and I'd like to be able to simply and easily add a keyword filter using FrontPage (form submission gets rejected if a keyword is in a form field). So far, the only thing I'm able to use is the "Field must be:" and "And must be:" areas under Data value (Form Field Properties--> Validate... --> Data value). I just set it to "Not equal to" and enter in the "badword" under Value.
The problem with this is that there is only room for two, and, not only is it case sensitive, but if the submission does not match exactly what I put in the filter, it lets it slip through (e.g. filter of "href=" won't stop "<A HREF=http://www.domain.com>"). I'm looking for a "contains" or something similar, and also a way to extend my filters to more than just two.
It's not exactly the most ideal or productive solution, but adding more (s-validation-constraint="Not equal to" s-validation-value="phentermine") statements will probably do the trick as far as increasing the number of badword filters, but it still doesn't solve the case sensitive issue or the "exact match" issue. Help! :(
If you want to secure your forms against spam bots you will need to find a third party script, either php or perl ... or asp if you are hosted on windoze server.
