    Hello,

    I was wondering if there was anyway to add “akismet:author” and “akismet:author_email” to the Contact Form Widget to make sure spam can’t go through? Or what would you advise doing instead? (Akismet is what I use on the Contact Form 7 forms to prevent spam)

    Thanks!

    Thank you, but I’m looking to stop spam from the pre-built contact form (not my personally built Contact Form 7 forms).

    I’m assuming to fix the spam issue I’d need to edit this file: widget-contact-form.php
    Correct?
