The Fast & Secure Contact Form Plugin can help secure an often overlooked & unlocked gateway into your blog, therefore take the time to choose your contact form & WP plugins wisely!
Many of you especially newbies, will probably be unaware of the dangers of using just any old contact form & that by doing so, you are in effect handing a key to a potential hacker.
Basically by inputting invalid characters into the various input fields of your comment form, an unscrupulous person may gain important details about your system, which are reported to this person in error messages. Having gained this knowledge it is then a simple matter to gain access to your blog and cause utter chaos & mayhem.
Now obviously it would be quite easy to simply remove all contact forms & therebye do away with this security hole ! But what of the genuine contact requests, what if a potential advertiser wants to contact you in order to discuss an advertising deal..?
My solution to this problem comes in the form of a neat little WordPress plugin called Fast and Secure Contact Form By Mike Challis. This plugin is very small in size and as such will not be an added burden & slow down your website or blog.
Installation of this plugin is very straight forward, once installed simply go to the admin page and set any additional settings that you require, there are also four different contact forms to choose from. Then simply create a new page through WordPress called ” Contact Us” and add to this page the tag code to call the contact form function. There you have it, all sorted and up and running with a SECURE contact form.
