    The title says it all.
    'CAPTCHA' didn't slow down the number of incorrect login attempts at all.
    Trying to find a CAPTCHA that does.
    PEACE,
    Hamish

    Actually this may work.
    I've moved on to another captcha and anytime a the captcha is incorrect it still logs as an incorrect login in Better WP Security. I had thought his would stop it even getting to the point of registering as an incorrect login.

    It is not clear, have you already found an answer or you still need our help?

    Hello,

    I think what "dreadedhamish" meant was that the problem with your Captcha is that wp-login.php checks first if username and password match. If they do match, than Captcha result gets checked but the whole idea of using Captcha is to stop robots from doing anything in the first place.
    I think you guys should start working on "if captcha doesn't match, ignore login request and if it does, than compare credentials against database".
    I like your plugin but the current solution obviously doesn't really work..
    Thanks,

    Martin
