Asks commenters to complete a simple CAPTCHA if they don't have a previously approved comment, or if Akismet thinks their comment is spam.
This plugin has two modes - basic and Akismet-enhanced.
Basic mode: the plugin will serve a CAPTCHA to all commenters that aren't logged in and don't have a previously approved comment. Repeat commenters will never see a CAPTCHA.
Akismet-enhanced mode (recommended): the plugin will serve a CAPTCHA only if Akismet identifies a comment as spam (much less frequently than the basic mode). Just install an activate Akismet to enable this mode.
Note that a CAPTCHA will only appear after a comment is submitted. When a commenter is served a CAPTCHA:
Most genuine commenters will be able to comment on your site hassle-free, without ever seeing a CAPTCHA.
The default CAPTCHA is a simple text-based test. There is also the option to use reCAPTCHA if you want something more robust (free API key required). You can also style the CAPTCHA page to fit with your own WordPress theme.
