7.       For correct protection, you need to add chunk [[$cleantalkFormParams]] on every form to protect (before closing tag < /form >).

For Ajax-form protection additional steps needed:

- Add cleantalkCheck in form hooks: &hooks=`cleantalkCheck`.

- Add variable after hooks depend on the form's type:

&cleantalkCheckType = `message` - for contact forms

&cleantalkCheckType = `register` - for registrations

 

8.       Do a test registration using the blacklisted e-mail stop_email@example.com. The cleantalk message must be shown.
