    Anti-spam bot code

    gwhPoster Level 1

      Hi everyone,

       

      I have the code below in my news detail layout. To try and combat spam-bots I'm using javascript to insert the action url on key press for the comments form. This type of code works perfectly well on all other forms on the site but for some reason it won't work on a comment form, ie. the action doesn't get inserted.

       

      Just wonderd if anyone could give me any clues?

       

      Thanks in advance.

       

       

      <form name="catratingform2343" onsubmit="return checkWholeForm2343(this)" method="post">
