    For example, I have a youtube or an amazon page link. How can i use a shortcode with captcha to place on this external URL?

    Hi,

    If I have a post like this:

    Paragraph

    See Video

    Paragraph

    How can I use this so that before user is able to see the link, they will have to click the captcha.

    I assume it can do that based from this FAQ

    Can I use external file URLs?
    Yes, you can use both local paths and external URLs.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Check the following documentation.

    Let me know if this is what you are looking for.

    Thank you

    no sorry…

    on the link you sent me to, it only shows how to add re-captcha for downloadable content created on my site. (internal URLS, I assume)

    “The Simple Download Monitor Plugin has a feature that when enabled, allows you to add reCAPTCHA to the downloads you create. Adding this security measure to downloadable items on your website allows only ‘real life‘ users to proceed to download.”

    It doesn’t show how to use the feature if the link I would like the user to go to is an external link.

    But on the FAQ page, it shows that you can use this plugin for external URLs.

    Thanks

    Are you referring to the following field Downloadable File (Visitors will download this item)?

    Hi,

    when you refer to “external file URLs” from this FAQ, what do you mean by it?

    Can I use external file URLs?
    Yes, you can use both local paths and external URLs.

    I was thinking it is a URL link from say “google drive” where when clicked a user can download a file from google drive instead of my site.

    Everything I have seen or read from all FAQs from this plugin is that I need to upload the file to my site and then use the id of that file in order to use recaptcha.

    If my understanding of “external file URLs” is incorrect, please disregard this question.

    Thanks

    Hi, you can add external links. The following addon allows you to integrate Amazon S3.

    Let me know if the above helps you.

    Thank you

    so this means that only Amazon S3 links is usable and not all other external links.

    anyways, thanks for your reply and have a great new year…

    I forgot to mention dropbox as well.
