I have actually decided to use a different solution (Goodbye Captcha) but before deciding that I looked at a few captcha plugins, including this one, so I feel like it deserves a review.
In fact, this is a very nice and effective plugin. I have used math challenges in custom code in the past but this plugin is far superior, randomizing not only the math question and answer but the order of the missing piece of the equation and using both numbers and images. I liked the ability to regenerate and set the timeout period as well.
Installation and setup was easy, and I even needed to use the custom code found in the FAQ because my registration is a bit non-standard. No problem, worked great.
So, I am not currently using this, but I did for several days and I can recommend it highly if you are looking for a simple but effective captcha plugin.
I have used this plugin for years. It is regularly updated. The developer is committed to development.
This plug-in should be required on all WordPress installations. It vastly enhances the security of your WordPress site. I also recommend you install an additional plug-in called "Limit Login Attempts" to enhance your over-all security.
This plugin earns 5 points. Thanks to the develeppors
Works like a charm and a reactive support ;-)
Happens to me that I have logged in with wrong results, reason was in collision with Maintenance plugin.
After deactivation of that plugin, captcha works just fine!
Thanks BestWebSoft for helping!
Excellent plugin to use, but isn't compatible with few hostings ;)
I pretty much hate all Captcha plugins because they all seem to add too much inconvenience for the user (pictures, letters that don't make sense, etc)... this is the only plugin I found that makes it really really easy and works out of the box.
I recently changed my WordPress Theme, and this plugin didn't work, I reached out to BestWebSoft's support and they replied immediately with a "Code" I needed to enter in my theme... I'm no coder and clueless on that stuff, and I was confident it wasn't going to work because I'd do it wrong... but I put that code into my theme and it worked!! So easy.
My only suggestion is the ability to customize it further (colors, layout, GUI, etc). I'm using the FREE version, but would easily pay for the premium version if it offered that.
