Yeah, you're right... The reasoning of not adding the captcha to phpbb on contact page was that if people are having problems with the captcha, they should be able to contact the board admin (without facing the captcha again)...

Try this: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... ontact_us/ ;)

Let me exlain my original issue. I got many spam mails submitted via contact page because the page was allowed to submit without login.

The issue has been solved After installing a plugin named "Login Require" as recommened by PhilDiscuss :

Thanks PhilDiscuss



Good to hear that. :-)

Remember if you are using the 2-stepAuth Extension and Login required are enabled.

Add this:

edit: also you may want to add "index.php"

Don't forget that if someone can't register or have problems with the forum on registration or login they will not be able to contact administration. That's why contact page exist and is showed without login required xD asking for login to access that page doesn't make sense. My previous message is the best solution available, imo.
It could be better like someone doing an extension that would add a choice on ACP to choose a captcha on contact us page. That way even if people can't register because of the captcha choosen for registration, we would select a different captcha for contact us page. ;)

Don't waste your time, save your keyboard from any undue wear and tear! :D

Some admins build their community around themselves and to their own requirements, forgetting or ignoring whats best for their members and guests. Forums like that are not usually around for long. ;)
