I am trying to add an extra field to my form that would help me combat spam. I have tried adding reCaptcha and I think I was missing the ever important feature of actually checking the code before sending the contact message through the email.
I would rank my own PHP experience at about a 5 out of 10. I understand enough to navigate pages but when it comes to troubleshooting problems like this I get somewhat lost.
I think I need to add something else for the server side, but I’m totally lost on this, and the [API Docs for verification](https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/verify “API Docs for verification”)aren’t as clear to me as the ones were for what i’ve done so far.
