Contact Form with Custom Image Captcha Validation like Google reCaptcha

Last modified on August 8th, 2020.

A contact form on a website is a medium to the users to contact the site admin or maintainer. It acts as a medium of communication. For many a websites, it is a critical factor in getting a sale.

The Captcha in a form is a mechanism to prevent bots or malicious users from submitting the form. It protects the site from security abuses.

There are components available in the market to render captcha in a form. Google reCAPTCHA is a popular and unbeatable service to make your form captcha-enabled.

  1. Different websites use different types of captcha.
  2. Displaying random alpha-numeric characters.
  3. Requesting to solve puzzles, Google reCAPTCHA-like image captcha.

I created an example code for a contact form in PHP with the reCAPTCHA-like image captcha mechanism.

  4. HTML code to show contact form with image captcha
  5. PHP code to validate image captcha and send contact mail

Existing contact form component

Ready-made contact form components are existing huge in number around the web. If you want to get one among them, then we need to be sure about the security and robustness of the code.

I have created a secure spam-free contact form script, Iris. I coded this component to easily integrate and configure with your application. If you are looking for a contact form that controls spam without using a captcha, then you will like it.

This also component includes Google reCAPTCHA. You can enable or disable this feature on a need basis. In similar ways, it comes with loads of features that is configurable in minutes.

About this example

This example code has the Name, Email, Subject and Message fields. These are some basic fields that we have seen with other PHP contact form example earlier.

Added to these fields, I have added an image captcha section in this code. This section will show five random images and ask to choose one. The random images are from the database.

I used jQuery script to validate the form field data before posting it to the PHP.

In PHP, it validates the captcha image clicked by the user. Based on the server-side captcha validation, the PHP will respond to the user.

File structure

The PHP contact form with an image captcha example includes less number of files.

The file structure is in the below screenshot. You can see that it has a systematic code with a conventional structure.

HTML code to show contact form with image captcha

This code snippet shows the HTML part of the index.php, the landing page. 

This contact form contains some basic fields with custom captcha in PHP.

The captcha section shows the SVG image markup from the database. It displays five random images and requests the user to select one.

The HTML form has the specification of a jQuery validation handler. The form-submit event will invoke this handler to process the form validation.

This HTML includes the response containers to display notifications to the user. These notifications acknowledge the user about the captcha validation or other responses.

jQuery script to validate contact form and highlight captcha selection

This section shows the jQuery script for validation and captcha selection.

The validateContactForm() function is handling the form validation. All the contact form fields are mandatory. This function is making sure about the non-empty state of the form fields.

On selecting one of the lists of captcha images, the script puts the selected value in a form field. Also, it highlights the selected by adding CSS via script.

If the user selects no captcha, then the validation will return false.

assets/js/captcha.js

function validateContactForm() {
	var valid = true;
	$("#userName").removeClass("error-field");
	$("#userEmail").removeClass("error-field");
	$("#subject").removeClass("error-field");
	$("#content").removeClass("error-field");

	$("#userName-info").html("").hide();
	$("#userEmail-info").html("").hide();
	$("#subject-info").html("").hide();
	$("#content-info").html("").hide();

	$(".validation-message").html("");
	$(".phppot-input").css('border', '#e0dfdf 1px solid');
	$(".captcha-container").css('border', '#e0dfdf 1px solid');

	var userName = $("#userName").val();
	var userEmail = $("#userEmail").val();
	var subject = $("#subject").val();
	var content = $("#content").val();
	var captcha = $("#captcha-chosen").val();

	if (userName.trim() == "") {
		$("#userName-info").html("required.").css("color", "#ee0000").show();
		$("#userName").css('border', '#e66262 1px solid');
		$("#userName").addClass("error-field");

		valid = false;
	}
	if (userEmail.trim() == "") {
		$("#userEmail-info").html("required.").css("color", "#ee0000").show();
		$("#userEmail").css('border', '#e66262 1px solid');
		$("#userEmail").addClass("error-field");

		valid = false;
	}
	if (!userEmail.match(/^([\w-\.]+@([\w-]+\.)+[\w-]{2,4})?$/)) {
		$("#userEmail-info").html("invalid email address.").css("color",
				"#ee0000").show();

		$("#userEmail").css('border', '#e66262 1px solid');
		$("#userEmail").addClass("error-field");

		valid = false;
	}

	if (subject == "") {
		$("#subject-info").html("required.").css("color", "#ee0000").show();
		$("#subject").css('border', '#e66262 1px solid');
		$("#subject").addClass("error-field");

		valid = false;
	}
	if (content == "") {
		$("#userMessage-info").html("required.").css("color", "#ee0000").show();
		$("#content").css('border', '#e66262 1px solid');
		$("#content").addClass("error-field");

		valid = false;
	}
	if (captcha == "") {
		$("#captcha-info").html("required.");
		$(".captcha-container").css('border', '#e66262 1px solid');

		valid = false;
	}
	if (valid == false) {
		$('.error-field').first().focus();
		valid = false;
	}
	return valid;
}

$(".svg-padding").on('click', function() {
	$(".svg").removeClass('captcha-selected');
	$(this).find(".svg").addClass('captcha-selected');
	var icons = $(this).find(".icons").val();
	$("#captcha-chosen").val(icons);
});

CSS created for contact form example

These are the exclusive styles created to present the contact form. Mostly, it contains styles for the captcha section.

I used a generic CSS template for designing other common form components. You can find this CSS in the downloadable.

assets/css/contact-form-style.css

.svg-padding {
	display: inline-block;
}

.svg {
	cursor: pointer;
	padding: 5px 5px 5px 5px;
	border-radius: 3px;
	margin: 0px 5px 0px 5px;
	border: 1px solid #FFF;
}

.text-color {
	font-weight: bold;
}

.captcha-container {
	background: #fff;
	padding: 15px;
	border: 1px solid #9a9a9a;
	width: 270px;
	border-radius: 3px;
	padding-top: 0px;
}

.error-field {
	border: 1px solid #d96557;
}

.send-button {
	cursor: pointer;
	background: #3cb73c;
	border: #36a536 1px solid;
	color: #FFF;
	font-size: 1em;
	width: 100px;
}

.captcha-selected {
	color: #1cb87b;
	background-color: #e3e3e3;
	border: #d7d7d7 1px solid;
}

.border-error-color {
	border: 1px solid #e66262;
}

PHP code to validate image captcha and send contact mail

On loading the contact form, the PHP code reads the random captcha images from the database. In PHP, it picks one image from the random results as the captcha code.

The HTML form contains a hidden field to have this code.

When the user selects an image and posts it to the PHP, it will validate the selected captcha.

The user-selected captcha is matched with the pre-loaded code, then the PHP code will return true. Then, it will process the contact email sending script.

index.php (Captcha Validation and Mail sending)

<?php
namespace Phppot;

require_once ("Model/Contact.php");
$contact = new Contact();
if (! empty($_POST['send'])) {
    if ($_POST['captcha_code'] == $_POST['captcha_chosen']) {
        $contact->sendContactMail($_POST);
        $message = "Hi, we have received your message. Thank you.";
        $type = "success";
    } else {
        $message = "Invalid captcha. Please select the correct image.";
        $type = "error";
        $border = "border-error-color";
    }
}
$result = $contact->getRecord();
$termId = $result[0]['id'];
$captchaResult = $contact->getCaptchaIcons($termId);
$randomCaptchaResult = $contact->getRandomCaptchaId($termId);
$captchaOutput = array_merge($captchaResult, $randomCaptchaResult);
?>

In this PHP model class, it has the functions to read random captcha images from the database.

The getRecord() method reads a single random record to load captcha code on the page load.

The sendContactMail() function send the contact mail. I used PHP mail() function for this example. If you want to use SMTP for sending the email, you can see the example in the linked article.

Model/Contact.php

<?php
namespace Phppot;

    private $ds;

    function getRecord()
    {
        $query = "SELECT * FROM tbl_term ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 1";

        $result = $this->ds->select($query);
        return $result;
    }

    function getCaptchaIcons($id)
    {
        $query = "SELECT tbl_captcha_images.*, tbl_term.name FROM tbl_captcha_images 
        JOIN tbl_term ON tbl_captcha_images.term_id = tbl_term.id WHERE term_id != " . $id . " ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 4";

        $captchaResult = $this->ds->select($query);
        return $captchaResult;
    }

Contact form captcha image database script

This SQL script includes the structure and data of the tables used to display custom captcha. The tbl_captcha_images table contains the SVG markup of the captcha images.

I have used another table tbl_term to hold the captcha term and title. The captcha term is for stating the user what to select. The captcha title is a slug to add it with a title attribute.
