This demonstrates using the Simple Email Form module inside an article:
Simple Email Form
Joomla 3.2+ validates the "From" email address. If this address is invalid, the email will not be sent!
Most people use the Simple Email Form inside an article, and if you have Joomla cache enabled, all articles are cached by default.. The module doesn't work if you plan to do all of the following:
- place the module inside an article
- use an image CAPTCHA
- enable joomla cache
If you do not use a CAPTCHA, you can use the module inside an article and still have joomla cache enabled.
The problem is that although the module can be excluded from cache, an article cannot. Once the CAPTCHA is cached, the visitor to your site sees the same CAPTCHA (because of caching) but internally it has been refreshed.
MicHelp! (michelp.fr) has confirmed that installing the JotCache Extension works!
If you install the JotCache Extension, you can exclude the article from cache, which will allow you to use CAPTCHAs.
