I have a query and i need a suggestion for it
while designing contact form is it advisable to eliminate the (required) text and related status of text fields. It’s probably better to get a few blank forms than lose a potential prospect.
Looking forward to hear from you all
Thanks in advance

I think your question not so clear..
What are you trying to make? can you put your code?April 7, 2013 at 8:49 am #130910PoddersParticipant
I kind of disagree, When filling in forms I quite often skip to the fields that are clearly marked as required and fill in only the bear minimum,
It can be quite useful to give a visual display of required fields before the user even starts to fill in, and as long as there are not too many fields to fill in, this doesnt really deter users from using the form,
Form validation is a must in my opinion, otherwise you’ll find yourself eventually inundated with offers of viagra and manhood enlargement tools !!April 7, 2013 at 8:58 am #130911realifeMember
oh yeah.. i think also the required is important like @Podders said
also for security, you don’t wanna get spam or blank messages to your emailApril 7, 2013 at 5:46 pm #130939yogieMember
One way to avoid all the spam is you can provide captcha at the end of form for security reason.April 8, 2013 at 2:57 am #130959AnonymousInactive
You really need to have some required fields like “email”, so you know how to contact the person back. As for anti-spam, I prefer using the “honeypot” method rather than captcha, so the user doesn’t have to do anything extra. Good luck!April 9, 2013 at 9:23 pm #131199
hi all of you.. thank you so much for for all your precious and knowledge sharing comments. even i think that email validation should be here if not all is client need but at least email should be validated.
@msguerra74 and @melindrea… i was not knowing about honeypot method. thanks for the update.
if i will copy and paste the following piece of HTML code on the line just above the tag
then will it help me eliminate the vast majority of junk responses you are getting from your online forms.
please suggest.April 9, 2013 at 9:24 pm #131200April 9, 2013 at 9:25 pm #131201
