Hello,  Is there a way to customize the 'Your entry appears to be spam!' that sometimes appears when a user has autocomplete turned on? I would like to add an email in the message if a user cannot get the form to work.  Thanks for any help!

Thanks for the quick reply Bobby but I was hoping to edit the text 'Your entry appears to be spam!'. Do you know if this can be easily done? Thanks!

You'll have to research or reach out to akismet I expect.

@Steve Zelle, the text "Your entry appears to be spam" is hard coded into the spam_check() function found at line 268 in the FrmEntryValidate class. The file can be found here: /wp-content/plugins/formidable/classes/models/FrmEntryValidate.php. Unfortunately, there is no filter available in this function to change the text. That doesn't mean you can't. It means you have to write custom code to override Formidable's code with your own. Overriding is a technique available with object oriented programming. See this:
