  • I seem to be getting bombarded with Spam messages at the moment which ever captcha I use. Is it possible to use 2 like the maths equation and a Antispam image. They do get blocked and go to the spam folder but I have also set we have to review messages as well. It is getting bombarded on whichever Captcha I use.

    Are you using Akismet?

    Yes I have turned it on but getting about 9 or 10 posts a day. They are captured by the spam filter but wanted to try and stop the bots from posting at all ๐Ÿ™‚

    I suggest you using reCaptcha, you can activate this on DMSGuestbook.

    I have tried reCaptcha and will give it another go as wasnt get as much. Sorry but is it possible to change the text colour on the reCaptcha as it is black text and black background ๐Ÿ™‚

    Copy this code on top of dmsguestbook.php, before <?php.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        var RecaptchaOptions = {
        lang : 'en',
        theme : 'blackglass'

    See: reCaptcha Customizing for more options.


    Thanks I have tried all of the themes but it stil keeps putting a black background with black text ?? I have even changed the background colour using the css options with the module. My theme is a black theme and that seems to be the problem. The other text is blue and a grey background apart from the recaptcha ??

    just added the option in to the mysql datbase and this also didnt change anything ๐Ÿ™ part from the rest of the text
