    Smile Any ideas as to how I could use captcha and validate my fields.

    I can validate my fields, I can validate with captcha. But I'm not sure how to validate my fields and use captcha at the same time. Anyone have any ideas?

    I'm just starting to jump into PHP but I could use some help

    The php web page with the form is located at http://www.rnlservicesllc.com/contact_us.php

    Thanks

    To be fair captcha annoys people....before deciding completely i would have a look around the internet for other methods. Obviously you'll never catch spammers 100% but you can do small things to help without annoying your users. Just search something like 'spam protection methods php'

    Or...a conversation i recently joined in with is available here where we discuss a similar thing:

    the simplest way would probably be to incorporate the reCaptcha validation as one of the field validations.

    wrong question

    After I sent this I started to think I asked the wrong question.

    Perhaps Captcha is overkill. I need to validate my fields and try to block my forms from spam as best as possible. Again this is not a high traffic site so Captcha is probably more of a user deterrent than a spam blocker.

    Any ideas?
