Can't set Proper Custom CSS for this
By ,

Very good plugin for captch but i hate its css and class, It should be wrapped by a outside class and eveything should inside this class, so we can set proper styles. Currently it has 2 parent class, one for image captch and another for input fields. They are separted by a
element. It should removed and these 2 element should be under a parent element.

not working for me
By , for WP 4.4.2

Fatal error: Class 'Securimage_si' not found in /www/htdocs/w013b456/roliswollis.de/wp-content/plugins/si-captcha-for-wordpress/si-captcha.php on line 852

Disappointed
By , for WP 4.2.2

After the Sweet Captcha breech, I had to change captcha plug-ins. After installing I began to received numerous spam and unwanted comments and advertising to posts.

Changing to another captcha program eliminated the unwanted automated posts.

At least Sweet Captcha was still not letting them through

Doesn't work

No captcha image is displayed.

Works, but doesn't stop spammers
By ,

Installation was quick and easily. Unfortunately the spammers could still register...

spam comments pass through
By ,

many spam comments from asia continent pass this plugin. Probably to many uses that is motivating spammers to write a dedicated bot ? ...

Appalling
By , for WP 3.5.1

My old Captcha plug-in broke so I installed this one as an alternative. Annoyingly I went from getting a dozen or so spam registrations per day to getting hundreds. This plug-in attracted spammers rather than kept them out - almost as though that was the purpose it was designed for.

Far from me making a donation to the developers, I'm expecting them to chuck me a few bucks to compensate me for the time it's going to take to delete all these spammers I've now got in my MailChimp database.

Doesn't prevent spammer to register - Broken

The captcha can be broken by robots that register to my wordpress installation and try to publish articles.

WARNING: Don't use this plugin on your login page!
By ,

WARNING!

If you use this plugin on your login page BEWARE. It will eventually crap out and prevent you from logging in. Your only recourse is to delete the Plugin Folder via FTP.

In addition it does not appear to block spam that effectively anyway. The developer continues to blame plugin conflicts, which could be true. But this is the second time its happend to me.
