Just released a major update to the Submissions dashboard.
There's a big chart at the top of the page that shows how many submissions your form has received, split between spam and non-spam submissions, over the last 7, 30 or 90 days on a daily basis, or for the last 6 or 12 months on a monthly basis.
We've added paging to the submissions list, with a default of 25 submissions at a time, as well as the ability to sort the submissions by the date they were received.
And, lastly, we've improved the Inbox and Spam Folders we introduced in the last release by enabling you to move submissions between folders or to archive submissions.
Altogether, we think this makes managing submissions much easier!
I just published an update to StaticForms with a refreshed look and improvements to the dashboard.
Under the covers I've also moved the application to .NET 5.0 which brings some performance improvements and has enabled me to simplify the codebase in some areas and fully automated the build / deploy pipeline using Github Actions, which should lead to more regular and reliable updates going forward.
Now there's one technology stack, one CI/CD pipeline and a lot less head-scratching whenever I need to make changes.
And Eleventy is a super-productive way to develop web sites and blogs, so hopefully there'll be a bit more frequent blogging going on in future.
So, it turns out that due to the way Google reCAPTCHA hooks into forms, it bypasses the standard HTML5 input field validation. Not cool.
StaticForms has had support for honeypot fields to help fight form spam since shortly after it was launched.
Sometimes though, it's useful to have another tool in the anti-spam armoury.
Today's release adds support for both the checkbox and invisible versions of Google's reCAPTCHA v2. Demos and code samples demonstrating how to integrate the invisible and checkbox versions are available now and a blog post and help docs will be added shortly.
StaticForms is featured on BetaPage today!
I chose not to pay to be listed, so it's taken almost two months, but today is the day.
I listed StaticForms on 10Words a few weeks ago and saw only a small number of visits directly attributable to that, so it will be interesting to see if BetaPage is more successful.
Webflow is growing in popularity as a powerful no-code web development tool.
If you export your Webflow site to host it elsewhere, or just need more powerful form-handling thatWebflow offers, StaticForms may be the answer. This tutorial walks through setting up the integration between StaticForms and Webflow.
The number of applications that StaticForms directly integrates with continues to grow, but how do you know they worked?
The answer is our new Form Action Logs!
You can now view the details of every action that was triggered by a submission. Not just a simple success or failure log, you can also view the request sent and the response received.
Native integration, no code, just add a "Send to Buttondown" action to your StaticForms form. Full setup details in our docs

I needed a simple way to add forms to a static website that I was building using VuePress. None of the existing options quite met my needs, so I built one that did.
