All steps after the form has been submitted
2. Check for spambots
You can activate the use of Spam protection for forms in the form options. In this case, the next step is to check whether the data was sent by a known spambot. If necessary, the sending of the form data then breaks off directly with a corresponding error message.
3. Data validation using PHP on server side
4. Captcha verification
You can activate the use of a captcha in the form options. More on this in: Spam protection for forms. In this case, the next step is to check whether the user has entered the captcha correctly. In the event of an error, the form including all entered data is displayed again together with a corresponding error message.
5. Security check
A few more internal security checks are then carried out with regard to session tokens and security tokens to protect against manipulation and hacker attacks.
6. Save data
Any upload files are uploaded in this step. You can set the form option “Save result” to “yes”. In this case, Visforms also saves the transmitted data in the database. More on this in: Saving and using data.
7. Send emails
Depending on your settings in the form options, a result email may be sent to you (administrator) and/or a user email to the website user. This step completes the successful submission of the form. More on this in: Send emails.
8. Forwarding and display of individual result texts
After submitting the form, Visforms redirects the user of your website to the home page and displays the success message “Form sent successfully”. However, you can also forward the user to any desired success page or deposit an individual success message. You make settings for this in the form configuration under the tab Result. More on this in: Success page and success message.
