Aimy Captcha-Less Form Guard brings you automatic updates and logging of rejected form submissions. Also there's a PRO version, which additionally comes with minimum fill out time hints and support for DNS-based Blackhole Lists (DNSBL).

Automatic Updates

Aimy Captcha-Less Form Guard now has its own update server so you can upgrade to future versions directly from within Joomla!.

Logging of Rejected Form Submissions

To get information on how many form submissions are rejected on your website and why, Aimy Captcha-Less Form Guard now allows you to switch on logging. If enabled, a log file will be created and maintained in your Joomla! document root's "logs" directory.

Additionally, the PRO version allows logging via PHP's error_log function, so messages about rejected submissions can be send to your PHP logs as well.

Minimum Fill Out Time Hints (PRO feature)

Captcha-Less Form Guard Configuration

Some users requested Aimy Captcha-Less Form Guard to inform the user when the minimum fill out time is over and the form can be submitted. So, here are two ways to give the user feedback, both are implemented using JavaScript:

Disable Button

The submit button is disabled so the user cannot submit the form until the minimum fill out time has passed. The button is re-enabled then.


The submit button is disabled and its text is replaced by a counter that counts down the seconds until the form can be submitted. When the counter reaches zero, the button is enabled and its original text restored.

DNS-based Blackhole Lists (DNSBL) (PRO feature)

Most mail servers use DNS-based tests nowadays to deny known spammers at an early stage already. So, why shouldn't Aimy Captcha-Less Form Guard utilize this technology to detect and deny those known "bad guys" as well?

This approach is both quite efficient and easy to set up. Aimy Captcha-Less Form Guard supports the blacklists of NiX Spam and SORBS - two high quality blacklists that can be used without fees or registration. To enable DNSBL spam tests, just enable one or both of the supported blacklists and you're ready to go!
