NURCaptcha inserts a reCAPTCHA on the Register Form of your site to protect it against spambots.
NURCaptcha stands for New User Register Captcha. It has been designed for anyone who wishes to allow free registration of new users for a WP site, but want to keep bots outside. It uses Google's reCAPTCHA tools to give your site an extra protection against those spammer bots, adding security to the WP Register Form.
Skt NURCaptcha is easy to install and doesn't slow down your site. It is called into action just at the moment the "Register for This Site" form is requested. It creates a challenge and checks the response given. If it is not valid, new user registration fails. If the response is valid, NURCaptcha leaves the scene and your site runs as if it was not there.
Skt NURCaptcha adds (from Version 3 on) extra security by querying trustable databases for known ip, username and email of spammers, so you get rid of them even if they break the reCaptcha challenge by solving it as real persons.
NURCaptcha also shows you each blocked attemptive. A Log file may be toggled for you to see data of the last attemptives blocked by the plugin. It shows date/time of trials, as well as usernames and e-mail addresses of those who failed registration and were kept outside. Please note that attemptives in which the spambot suspends its attack when confronted by the reCAPTCHA challenge can not be logged. So logfile figures will never reflect the whole achievements of the plugin in securing your site.
Works smoothly with WP Multisites (Network) and BuddyPress.
