Honeypot Field Element

Last Update: March 18, 2024

The Honeypot Field Element is a security Element you can add to your Avada Form. A honeypot is a field added to the form that the users can’t see (due to CSS or JavaScript which hides the field). Basically, if a spambot fills in a field that valid users can’t see, this alerts us to their activity. So if the honeypot field is filled in, we can confidently reject the form as spam.

How To Use The Honeypot Field Element

This Element is about as easy to use as it gets. Simply add the Element to your form, and if the field is filled in (by a bot), then the submit button won’t be displayed on the front end. You only need to add one Honeypot Element in a Form, and this Element can also work in conjunction with the reCAPTCHA Field Element.

Within each of the Elements, you will see a tab or tabs that house an array of options that make it possible for you to configure each instance of the Element independently, greatly enhancing your flexibility and creative options.
