Works for some bots
By , for WP 4.0.1

Well, the plugin works, but only for some bots. I guess some clever programmers implemented some code to read the result of the arithmetical problem from the source code of the page, since it is written there: <input type="hidden" name="cptch_result" value="gRI=" /> :-(

this plugin is now outdated
By , for WP 3.6

sadly, this plugin is now outdated, it worked until june and now I'm spammed with Vuitton bags, watches... bots have the upper hand now.

Had to disable comments on all my pages.

=> any alternative solution ? May i install another free layer of security like WP Captcha-Free ?

Plugin works, but CAPTCHA's not so great
By , for WP 3.6

This plugin works well, but the CAPTCHAs are often very hard to read. Guess that's typical of CAPTCHA though...

Very very basic.
By , for WP 3.5.1

A good basic "math" Captcha, but with a few minor drawbacks:

First, even though you are given the option of using "words" in place of digits (ie: "five", "nine") users can't answer using words (which might be confusing). Not a big deal, but clumsy. I simply uncheck "Words" as an option. But a "words-only" Math Captcha might thwart more Bots if users must answer in "words" as well.

The Captcha is ONLY math, no "text" Captcha, so if you want a text Captcha too, you'll need a second plugin.

It would be nice if "/n" (or something similar) were supported in the Captcha Title for carriage returns so your entire prompt/instructions doesn't have to fit on one line. (Maybe some [BBcode] too?)

Biggest problem: If the user enters the wrong answer and goes Back (as instructed), their entire post is gone and must be retyped. That could seriously tick off some people after typing a long comment only to lose it because "butter fingers" hit the wrong key.

Maybe in the next update?
