Site Security

This Joomla! System Plugin is a extended version of our popular Joomla! User Plugin plgSpambotCheck. It hooks into several Joomla! Extensions such as the comment system of K2 and prevents spambot attempts. Plugin checks e-mail and/or IP against online spambot databases and prevents - acording to the results of that check - spambot actions. It has many options for indivudial configuration. For now it only works with K2 but I plan on extending it on other Joomla! Extension too.

Visforms is a native form generator for Joomla! 2.5.x and Joomla! 3. It allows you to generate forms without programmation and makes a point of protecting your forms against spambots. It provides you with an adapted form of our Joomla! plugin spambotCheck. Just install plgvisformsspamcheck, that is attached in the installation zip file, enable the plugin and set up it's configuration. Visforms provides you with captchas which you can use alternatively or additionally. Visforms gives you further on the option to save form data in database and to export saved data into csv format. Visforms works fundamentally similar to the Joomla 1.5 extension CK Forms from Cookex Developpment Team so that you may even be able to import your CK Forms data from your Joomla 1.5 website (see below). Visforms has good security features such as php validation of submitted data (in case JavaScript is disabled or doesn't work properly with the mootools version used by Joomla 2.5 as is the case for Firefox 2.0). It uses a token to prevent from CSRF (Cross-site request forgery). It allows you to restrict uploads via file extension and file size. Visforms provides you with substantial description for every single parameter, that helps you configure your form. Visforms supports Joomla! multi language websites natively and has complete language support in backend and frontend.
