- To install the plugin, you must first copy the directory yacaptcha in your
WordPress plugin directory which must be /wp-content/plugins/. If you are using
Wordpress 2.7 or higher, you can simply use the plugin installer in your
site admin section, search for yaCAPTCHA and click on install or upload the zip
- After the installation, you need to go in your site admin, in the Plugins
section and activate the yaCAPTCHA plugin.
It should works flawlessly with the default theme.
Optional intallation steps
- For WordPress version lower than 3.0, the default theme and most themes
place the additionnal comment form items after the submit button. I suggest you
change it so that it appears before the submit button. Have a look at the
"How can I customize it?" section in the FAQ. This is not necessary if you are
using version 3.0 or a higher version of WordPress.
- The default WordPress settings regarding comment appearance should be tweaked
with this plugin. I suggest you uncheck these two options: "An administrator
must always approve the comment" and "Comment author must have a previously
approved comment" in the Discussion Settings, "Before a comment appears" area.
