Tough on bots, Easy on humans
I love the new captcha’s that have started appearing, you know the ones with pictures you must match etc.
Or should I say, I hate them much less than the old style mangled letter captcha’s 😉
Up until now. I’ve been using Wangguard to protect my Buddypress site from spambots. This is OK but I find it a bit more than I need, plus some people have complained they couldn’t register because Wangguard had blacklisted them.
I wanted something simple and lightweight.. all I needed was a captcha box on the Buddypress register page. I found a plugin for Buddypress on the WordPress plugin repository that was almost just what I was looking for, but it used the old-style Goggle API. 🙁
So, I’ve ripped the guts out of that plugin and updated it to use Google’s cool new style captcha..
If you would like to try the plug-in, here it is:
Alternatively, you can do a search for ‘Buddypress nocaptcha’ in your dashboard. cool!!
Did you find this useful? Buy me a coffee! 🙂
