Integrates Picatcha image-identification CAPTCHA - anti-spam solution with WordPress including comment and registration.

Version 1.3.3

  • Added localization option for the Picatcha CAPTCHA: Hungarian

Version 1.3.2

  • Added SSL capabilities: The Picatcha Plugin will try to detect if your WordPress installation is using https or not. You can also manually set it to use https or http via the Picatcha settings page.

Version 1.3.1

  • Added BuddyPress registration page compatibility

Version 1.3

  • Name Change: We are renaming our image CAPTCHA from Picatcha to Pix-Captcha. We plan to build more anti-spam and anti-internet-abuse software and services. The module name will stay the same, but in the settings, the CAPTCHA itself is now referred to as Pix-Captcha.
  • TimeDelta Comment Protection: TimeDelta introduces a minimum time that the user must view your post before their comment can be posted legitimately. Many spam bots will try to load your post and comment immediately. If you set the TimeDelta to 15 seconds, any comments posted within 15 seconds of loading the page can either be sent to moderation or to the spam bucket. TimeDelta currently requires Pix-Captcha to be active for comments in order to run
  • Picatcha Customizations: We have updated the Picatcha widget to allow more customization. You can select the number of images, color styling, image size, and optional image noise. You can play around with these values on a live version at picatcha.com/custom/.
  • Public key / Private Key Validator: We have included a key tester, to let you check the keys to make sure they're correct. Clicking on the Validate Key button will check your keys against our server, and will return a green 'valid' if the key is inputted correctly, and a red 'invalid!' if not.
  • Redesigned settings page: We redesigned the settings page to make it more compact and usable. We also removed some vestigial settings that were probably not used.
  • WordPress Network update: fixed a bug that would not properly retrieve the settings page, along with debugging the functionality for WordPress Network installations.

Version 1.2.1

  • Minor CSS updates
