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 :)
I tried many buddypress captcha plugins:
- BuddyPress Security Check
- SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam
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!
Great alternative to standard captchas and worked like a charm. Very quick and helpful support if you get stuck as well.
Users can play a quick game to prove human, better than the boring reCaptcha.
Easy and effective to be used to stop spam signups and brute-force login attempts.
A must-have for every WordPress installation!
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!
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!
This plugin is AMAZING! And the support is great!
Thank you very much for this plugin!
Has really helped with my comment spam problem I tried another captcha but the server was down. The games are very fast and easy. Excellent plugin, using it on two of my sites.
I love FunCaptcha! The old Captcha way of squiggly letters and numbers offers no interaction and only gives a feeling of mistrust from the site people are trying to join.
This plugin installs quickly and easily. Setting up an account to obtain both the public and private keys to activate FunCaptcha is completed effortlessly and immediately.
How can such a great plugin be free? I am simply amazed.
This is, without question, the best way to lift the spirits and put a smile on the face of someone joining your site!
I highly recommend FunCaptcha! Great work!
