Hi all -
I was wondering whether Wix does, or can, support adding a CAPTCHA challenge to the Forum to prevent spam caused by bots?
I manage a Wix website which includes a Forum. The forum is frequently spammed by (what seems to be) bots which post arbitrary, unrelated questions. This spam is very disruptive and the real forum users complain quite often. The spam posts are in plain English without offensive language (example: subject "What causes Heart Disease?" with a massive content block of arbitrary health content). Right now the forum has some settings, but none which prevent this type of spam. The settings allow for blocking offensive language (which our spam does not have), or restricting posting in the forum to moderators (which we do not want, since the forum is intended for the public).
The clear fix for this type of spam (bots) is to introduce a basic CAPTCHA challenge on submitting forum content (Questions, etc.), thus allowing only 'real' users to participate. Wix does have a CAPTCHA widget for use in the site, but no integration with the Forum App. Can Wix add this to the Forum?
