Hey all, I am wondering if it is possible to limit the number of times a user can submit a form.

Say a user comes to the site, fills and submits the form, goes to another page, and back to the form page, i would like the "custom submit message" to be displayed instead of the form.

any way to do this ?

Hi there,

You could set a browser session variable after the user has submitted. Then, before you return your Form class, you could check the existance of the session variable.

If you'd like a bit of help with code, I could whip up a simple page type with a form and the session stuff I talked about.

Cheers,
Sean

This would be great to see!

look forward to seeing it. I would also like to see some sort of Captcha added to the forms and also to the comments.

Regards,
Dave
