Ironclad CAPTCHA WP plugin

3D objects-based CAPTCHA to get rid of spam in comments.

Q: Can I change the look and feel of CAPTCHA or make it fit my blog's design? A: Sure! All styles are contained in "wp-content/plugins/ironclad-captcha/captcha.css". You can change it as you like.

Q: I don't like "Are you a human?" string. I want to type there something different. How can I do this? A: Log into your Iconclad CAPTCHA account (where you got your API-key), click on Settings link next to the name of your site/blog and change this or several other settings.

Q: My captcha appears under "Send comment" button. Is it possible to move it ABOVE that button? A: Yes, but due to some limitations of WP you should do it by hand. Don't worry, it's quite easy! Open "wp-content/themes" folder of your WP installation and locate folder with the name of the color theme you use in your WP now. Then locate "comments.php" file inside that folder and change the following string:

ID); ?>

You should move it several lines upper, to make it right below the line with < textarea > definition. Save the file and upload it to your WP site if you edited it locally.

In some versions of WordPress these lines are in wp-includes/comment-template.php file. You should move specified lines above, right before '


p class="form-submit">'.

Requires: 2.3.1 or higher
