    Just a quick question.
    Does this plugin work on a network/multisite?
    If so, how must it be activated? Network activated or site-by-site?

    Thank you in advance.

    version 1.1 of http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/skt-nurcaptcha/

    Hi marikamitsos,

    This plugin does not work with multisite version of WP. I intend however to release a new version with that funcionality, soon.

    Thank you for asking.

    Just released version 2.0 - Multisite enabled.

    It is Network activated, as all sites in MU share the same users base. NURCaptcha closes all doors at once.

    Please report any problems. Thank you.

    Thank you Carlos. :)

    Could you please tell how we should activate it. Network activated or site-by-site?
    And what would the differences be?
    If we were to network activate it, would site admins have to put their own keys? (can this be done?).
    If not then we put ONE "master key" for the multisite? But then admins should NOT have access to the options page. Not needed anyway. Then, the options page could probably be on the network admin panel.
    Furthermore, even if we make it available to only some sites they still don't need the options page.
    Meaning: Install --> Network Activate (set network admin options with key)--> Admin plugins (activate by "some" admins) --> Enjoy.
    Does this make sense?

    By the way. Does it create any tables (one only or one for each site)?

    Thanks again.

    When you ask for your private and public keys for the reCAPTCHA at Google's Labs, you must choose if those keys will be used for one url only or if they are activated for multiple urls. The latter will be your choice if you are installing Skt NURCaptcha in a Multisite platform.

    Activation is done by the superadmin once and for all child sites. No need of new keys even if you create other sites after the plugin activation. This feature prevents any problems due to the fact that the users database table is the same for all installations. In fact it makes no sense to leave any of the child sites opened if we want to prevent bots attacks on the database, not just on a particular url of your cluster.

    To this moment the log routine creates just a .txt file inside the plugin's directory in which occurrences are registered, one line each. No database tables at all. The idea of logging plugin activity for each site of the Network, however is a worthy wondering hint. It has been added to my agenda. Thank You.
