Googles reCaptcha Form SPAM prevention

The Old Captcha Method


Over the years there have been numerous methods invented to keep spam bots away from contact & other forms. A common method that you’ll often see is the requirement to fill in a code before sending the form. This worked fine in most cases, however filling in the code was always one extra step in the form sending process.

The New reCaptcha Method


Yay!, no more filling in a code before sending a form. The new method allows a user to simply click a confirmation box. Very easy and speeds up the process of sending a form. If you are a web site owner, your potential clients will appreciate the extra ease offered by the new method.

A working version of this SPAM protection can be seen here on the contact form of this web site.

Automating WordPress Plugin Updates

wordpress-pluginsI recently had a request from a client who was interested in updating their WordPress Plugins themselves. At the time, the possibility of auto-updating was raised.  I did a search and found – which can be configured to automate the updates of other plugins.

The only potential gotcha here is if a plugin update “breaks” the site. i.e causes a conflict with WordPress or other plugins and therefore has the site  working incorrectly in some way. If you did not get back to check the site, you would not know there was an issue until you next checked the site yourself, or if someone contacted you to let you know. Continue Reading →

The search engine affects of Google’s new policy for websites not optimised for Mobile Phones

From Tues 21, April , 2015 Google will be penalising web sites that are not mobile phone optimised. What this means is that if your competitors’ websites are mobile optimised, and your website is not, its likely that their websites will be favoured in mobile search results ahead of your own website.

A New Ecommerce Website for Flow Massage Wax

Massage Wax / Balm

We’ve just completed a new website for Flow Massage Wax. As online business was increasing for our client, she decided it was time to re-brand and offer both herself and her clients an improved shopping cart experience.

The original Massage Wax website

For some years, the client’s needs had been met with a simple drop down list and some manually included Paypal buttons. This was adequate, but manually intensive to change things. Shipping was handled by price inclusiveness. This was also adequate, but limiting as far as selling products of varying shapes and sizes. Continue Reading →
