    Hey, I’m having a problem where CleanTalk is actually blocking the submission of a WPForm on my website. Have you heard of this? Do you have any ideas about how I might fix it?

    Hi, I have 3 forms on my WP website, through Visual Form Builder, can you tell me if CleanTalk will prevent the dozens of spam completed forms I receive everyday? I don’t understand the ‘How to test..’ section. I am not an IT worker just a website owner
