One which actually works
By , for WP 4.3eta2

All the popular anti-spam plugins which I've tried have been useless so far, I was still getting 30 spammer registrations a day. So I turned towards the lesser known ones and found this. It's just about stopped every single spammer dead in their tracks so far. Only 1 has gotten through out of hundreds (but all new successful registrations still need to be approved by me first). Anyway, it's simple, very effective and the only captcha I hope I'll ever need. You've cured my ongoing spammy migraine, thanks :)

Finally a working solution!
By , for WP 4.1.1

I tried many buddypress captcha plugins:
- BuddyPress Security Check
- SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam
- etc.

And all failed to stop SPAM registrations... But after installing Funcaptcha it stopped immediately! I can't find the 'Register Ad', the comment below mentioned?? After you complete the task I see the message:
"Well Done, enjoy your stay"

For future update's it would be nice if we can tell the API what message to generate there.

Thanks guys for this easy to install and great working plugin!

Huge "register" ad
By , for WP 3.9.2

There is a huge "register" ad at the end of the captcha that creates confusion... I'll use this until I find a better one... this is just terrible design.

Sexist

One of the games is involves identify the women out a few photos of men and pull it into the center. Horrible idea, gender is not "fun".

Great Plugin, quick question!
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is a great plugin that is very simple and does exactly as advertised! Also it is really easy to setup with the easy to follow steps and videos.

I was just wondering if it is possible to integrate this into a contact form I have built in my theme? I was hoping that someone could provide some guidance to how I could implement something such as:

if(function_exist("funcaptcha")){
do_awesome_funcaptcha_stuff();
}

Excellent plugin!!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Great alternative to standard captchas and worked like a charm. Very quick and helpful support if you get stuck as well.

Bravo!

Users can play a quick game to prove human, better than the boring reCaptcha.

Great idea!
By , for WP 3.6.1

Easy and effective to be used to stop spam signups and brute-force login attempts.

A must-have for every WordPress installation!

Great protection which is fun for the user
By , for WP 3.5.2

It really is a sweet user interface, fun instead of frustration trying to read those obscured characters. The developer(s) seem to be on the ball and gave me personal feedback to questions. Some things need to be added, like a shortcode for Contact Form 7, and in particular other languages, not just english, but otherwise great, handles BuddyPress and SSL with bravour!

Quick service to address CSS issue
By , for WP 3.5.2

The folks at FunCaptcha responded over the weekend and sent me custom CSS code to address a Template issue I had with their plug-in.

Super awesome support, and damn if this captcha isn't fun :)

Reduced my spam by 99.9 percent. Love it, highly recommend!
