Spam + Email Addresses as Hidden Fields in Forms

12
Hi there,

Does anyone know if spam trawls can pick up email addresses from hidden fields in submission forms.

And/or does anyone know if there is an alternative to having your email address in the hidden field?

Many thanks,
Dave

I would say yes. A spider should be able to view the hidden fields on a web form. I would suggest that you use a server-side language that would process your form for you and then email it to the parties necessary. This way the email addresses are not viewable or accessible to others.
