Works great

As I use a custom theme, I had to add an action to display the captcha in the comment form.
Thanks for this great plugin!

add_action('init', 'prefix_init');
function prefix_init()
    global $bwp_capt;
    add_action('bwp_recaptcha_add_markups', array($bwp_capt, 'add_recaptcha'));

add_action('comment_form_after_fields', 'prefix_add_captcha');
function zoodo_add_captcha()

Works Great

This recaptcha plugin is easy to install and setup. It has all the features you'd want when doing this type of thing, so it's become my go-to for adding recaptcha into my sites that use Contact Form 7. :)

Not that good
By , for WP 3.8.1

I especially wanted to give a chance for this "better reCAPTCHA". But first of all I don't see any difference to the normal one.

Also the integretion in Contact Forms 7 did not work for me properly. I'm not sure if it's CF7 that not working properly. But at least there is no difference to reCAPTCHA. So I don't see any sense in this "special" one.

Works Good

This plugin works good, but it's not support the wordpress below 3.6 version because in the following function "registerCf7Tag()" they have "bwp-recaptcha" - sign between the variable name it cause javascript error in below WP3.6 version

public static function registerCf7Tag(){
		if (function_exists('wpcf7_add_tag_generator')) {
				'BWP reCAPTCHA',

In future upgradation consider the variable names as a standard one.

Works great! If you are using Contact Form 7 you will need Contact Form 7 BWP reCAPTCHA Extension to get everything to work correctly. Thanks!
