Hi there, I’m new to website development and have some sort of question about a current page I’m working away at.
I’m using dreamweaver cs4. I’ve a members contact list that makes use of PHP and MySQL (alot from the dreamweaver auto host bindings and behaviours coding etc).
I’ve the " contact address" from the mysql database wrapped in a mailto tag. So members who log on the members only web page can contact various other members by clicking on their email link from the contact information. The item works. My problem is, how can one make this safer to prevent unsolicited mail bots etc
You may always set the text display regarding it to do at as opposed to the symbol. Bots look for this symbol, and that’ll cut out a lot of it if a person remove it. Dress yourself in help.
thanks for your advice. however, i are not aware of if i adhere to you exactly.. the email addresses are in the database while using " " do i must change it to at from the database
Merely understand your dilemma, I think the secure part you might want to worry about reaches login. Use any captcha or request a question for login.
WE wasn’t sure the way that worked. I’ve the login site php script as well as the passwords table in the mysql database both equally set to md5 encryption. As long as the page while using email links require that login the particular spammers can’t arrive at it If that is definitely so, I’ve been drving myself insane for nothing lol. Thanks for your speedy replies!
Yeah the bots are not going to purchase the database. They’re going to scower your pages searching for email addys as well as forms to add. Not to say which a hacker can’t be in, but usually they’re more interested in charge card numbers and such thinggs as that.
Awesome. Thanks for your information I appreciate what! Expect to see loads of questions from me from now on.
i under take a position your question you will need captcha for sign in.
i really hope you do this.
i do thinking about using that. Thanks for your advice
No mailto links! That they suck, no criminal offense. Why not come up with a php mail form that may automatically email the contents of the message to the desired address. No spambots messing around on hand anymore.
For more info check away the mail() function in php.
