Confident CAPTCHA™ is a clickable, picture CAPTCHA that stops spam and malicious bots, while remaining a very easy CAPTCHA for humans to solve.
I used this on my blog for several weeks. During that time I had at least 5 spam messages every single day. I turned off this plugin and the amount of spam messages did not increase. I added a simple question captcha and now I get absolutely no spam emails.
Their plugin page is down or gone and I have read posts in coding forums where people are paying coders to code a way around this plugin and I believe that they have figured it out.
Do not waste your time with this plugin.
Works right out of the box and was a breeze to install. Thanks!
Hoop jumping festival to install and then didn't work when I did.
I actually waited a few weeks before giving a response, because I wanted to do a Pro/Cons, but so far I only have Pros.
Things I liked about Confident Captcha
Easy to install
Much less user complaints (none so far)
I was able to match the captcha skin to the color of my website
Most importantly bot traffic down to zero (was using reCAPTCHA)
This plugin is what my site needed. I didn't want an impossible CAPTCHA for my site's visitors I also didn't want a silly game. So this is a great fit.
The plugin looks great, just doesn't work with WP Multisite. Network nor site-by-site activation. Works good on Registration page. Does not display puzzle on login or change password. As far as I can tell, there is no shortcode for contact form integration.
So sorry. I would love to use this plugin!
Photos are much easier/friendlier than trying to read badly distorted text.
The only drawback of this plugin is that it looks like an advertisement at the bottom of your comment box asking people to click it before they can post, and there is no Setting to add user-definable informative text just above the Captcha like "Prove you are a human by clicking the photos below."
Maybe in the next update.
I installed this plugin and it works very well, one of my sites was attracting in the region of 150 to 200 spam comments a day, this has now stopped, great job. During the installation I had a bit of a glitch and sent a request to the support desk, I got a response very quickly, within an hour or so, the solution worked perfectly.
I was having an awful amount of trouble with spam on my website. I installed ReCAPTCHA, which was plagued with two problems. One, the bots still got past, and two, my users complained about the impossible-to-read, distorted words. Since I installed Confident CAPTCHA, I have received no spam, but I have received many compliments from my website visitors. Best CAPTCHA ever!
This is the best captcha I have installed on a WordPress site. I used to use reCaptcha but still got spam. Ever since installing I have had no spam at all. Also my users think it is great.
