Ham Approver for Umbraco Forms

Ham Approver is a workflow item for Umbraco Forms, that helps you eliminate SPAM submissions without sacrifizing UX. It runs each submission against Plino, to determine whether the submission is ham or spam.

Minimum requirements

Ham Approver is built against Umbraco CMS 8.4 and Umbraco Forms 8.3 and supports those versions and above. For Umbraco 7, please see version 1.0 on NuGet, or Our Umbraco


  • Tests the submission against Plino, if the submission is OK (aka not spam), it will approve the submission.


Ham Approver needs some configuration to work.


These are settings regarding the submissions content.

Comment fields

This is the body text of your submission. Add the alias(es) of the field(s) to test for spam, seperated by comma. If no aliases added, the test will use a concatenation of all fields.

If you have fields with sensitive information, you should probably not send them to the third party API.

Release Notes


Adds support for Umbraco 8.4 and Forms 8.3. Changes provider from BlogSpam.net to Plino. Thanks to Jeavon Leopold and Jeric Yuen for making this happen!
