honeypot field: doesn't seem to weed out spam as expected
I wanted to add a honeypot field to a form: I added a hidden honeypot field per the instructions here: https://docs.grabaperch.com/addons/blog/spam/
But, I wasn't sure if you needed Akismet for this feature to work, or if it was something that was built into Perch.
I tried testing it by unhiding the field and filling it out before submitting -- but my client still received the form submission via email (I assumed it would prevent submission of the form).
Should she have still gotten the email if the honeypot was working correctly? Is there something else I need to do (i.e., add Akismet as well)?
Incidentally: the forms app is not recognizing this form for some reason, though I have successfully submitted the form.
