Just installed a wordpress site with WHW1. Updated it to Ver 3.8.1. Only standard (default) plugins/features/settings/themes for now as far as this posts goes.
I was surprised to see no Captcha for people commenting (thus signing up).
This cannot be! In this day and age, this must already be in there somewhere in WP settings. Where though?
If it is as I suspect, then please how or where can I enable the Captcha for all comment posts, and any signups. Hope it allows a selection on this with checkboxes/buttons.
If what I expect is not the case, and some addon/plugin/module needs to be installed, then I would like to avoid getting overwhelmed with addons, and would appreciate sharing with me which FREE addon does this the best?
I do NOT want to have an offsite service handling the captcha (in other words NO 3rd party code, please, that gets added to my site) . The security captcha should be handled by my WP site installation.
Thank you in advance for any response.
