Captcha The Dog


Photo Captcha with user defined images to reduce the spambot prize/payload to one website at a time. Creating a new captcha puzzle one new image at a time. Building a new spambot for each website with unique user defined images does not make financial sense for the spammer.

A captcha with “Which one of these things is not like the other?” puzzle.

Version history: – 1 may 2009: created – 5 may 2009: public released – 7 may 2009: admin does not need to use captcha, catches php.ini file error


  1. Upload captchathedog to the /wp-content/plugins/captchathedog/ directory or 1. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Some servers need the following modification to their pho.ini: For example /home/[userID]/etc/php.ini

Add these lines: allow_url_include = On allow_url_fopen = On

I hope this helps..
