The form is being used to send spam messages from overseas. How can I block responses from outside Australia please?
I'm using Joomla 3.8.11 and Chronoforms 5.

Hi margknox,
You could perhaps check the user's IP address to see where that originates. There are several suggested ways to do this in this SitePoint tutorial.
Equally, you can probably block the spam in ChronoForms using serverside validation.

If you'd like to buy me a coffee or two, thank you very much

fyi Admin Tools Pro extension allows blocking entire continents and or specific countries.
this will keep your chronoforms safe
