captcha for com_contact component

I have receive 3 email yesterday asking me how to integrate com_securityimages into the contact section

just wondering how you have implemented the CAPtcha for this contact us form, i mean the integration of your wonderful component with the com_contact or the joomla/mambo contact us page…

thanks for the compliments I always appreciate  🙂

Some remarqs:

  • com_contact is a core component of Mambo/Joomla
  • com_contact has no extension mechanism, no way till today to plug code on the fly -> I must add 8 lines of ly code in a portion of code manually. I am doing this for You, and publish the latest #Joomla version at joomlaforge
  • I have never tried to deinstall com_contact, (You can try if you want), and use the installer to install my modified version, I personnally prefer using FTP and overwrite files at the right place…since I am a developer I feel I have more control

Download: com_contact HERE (choose the right version for You #Joomla install) and overwrite file on your server
