How to make a simple Honeypot field to trick Spambots

Why use Honeypot?

A honeypot field is a field added to the form that the users can’t see due to CSS or JavaScript (which hides the field). Honeypots are awesome because they don’t inconvenience users like a captcha and they are a valid tool for thwarting spam bots. Basically, a spambot fills in a field that valid users can’t see, alerting us to their activity. If the honeypot field is filled in, we can confidently reject the form as spam.

After the honeypot field was invented, the spambot authors got a little smarter. They added some code to detect these hidden fields. If the name of the field is always the same, then the honeypot field is really simple to detect.

How to add Honeypot field for your form

Besides designing your form, you can also make changes to an existing one.
You can then add fields to your form from here. You are free to be as inventive as you want, creating anything from a Simple Contact form to a Survey. Fill in as many or as few fields as you need.
