Regularly testing submission forms?

    I am not sure of a tool but this is an exact issue I have come across recently! I was thinking about build a script that runs daily that goes into each form, autofills the field with test data and tests though the issue I have is that I am using google recaptcha specifically to stop someone from making a script to fill these forms..

    Interesting problem, maybe some kind of addition to the tool would be needed to self test its self.

      This isn't exactly the most time efficient way of building it if you're talking about a ton of sites, but an idea would be to put a hidden field in your form and have a key in your script that allows you to skip the captcha service. Basically, your daily script contains a passphrase and you drop that into your hidden field and that disables the captcha check.

      That's easy if you're the creator of whatever script is submitting the form. If you're using something like Gravity Forms, you'd probably have to custom develop a solution to work around its captcha set up.
