Asks commenters to complete a simple CAPTCHA if they don't have a previously approved comment, or if Akismet thinks their comment is spam.

Happy dance!

Akismet already blocked 99% of spam, but the fact that I could review these comments made me nervous. What if a real comment was hiding in those 10.348 blocked comments? I had real FOMO because of this Akismet feature. Your plugin made me do a happy dance just now!

Easy to setup and works great! Human commenters never see the Captcha so it's unobtrusive. So far no spam has made it through.

Have it running in "Akismet-enhanced mode" and it's blocked hundreds of spambot comments in just a couple of days. The plugin displays a brief blocked spam count on the admin dashboard to let you know how well it's working.

Really good plugin

This plugin is really doing its job: it blocks spammers robots.

Fine to Reduce Spam Comments

I would say that since I used plugin, the spam comments have reduced. But still getting some. is there something i can do?

After the first installation, the number of captured spam in my Akismet queue was already half of what it had ever been!
I really appreciate the synergy work between this plug-in and Akismet; couldn't think of a better solution...
After only a few weeks after installation, the content of the "Akismet-flagged" comments queue was less than half of what it had ever been.
I particularly like the fact that only "suspicious" comment posts will ever see the captcha, so that "the regulars" will never have to type anything else but their comments on a post.
Invisible and effective... Perfect!

Fantastic Plugin

Love that the captcha is only served to suspicious comments so it's not annoying to those leaving real comments. Love that the recaptcha option is available so serving captchas actually accomplishes two useful things. Love the ability to customize a lot of the appearance, though a bit more customization might be nice. And I love how very little spam I have to monitor now -- as everyone else says, Akismet was doing a good job, but with Conditional Captcha, it's 100 times better. Have been using these plugins together for several months now and couldn't be happier :) Many thanks to the plugin author!

Thank you!

This plugin works like a charm. Highly recommend the combination of Akisment and Conditional Captcha. Thank you!

I wanted to keep comments open without having to review the spam folder--even though Akismet is very good, I don't like not having another set of eyes on it. Adding this plugin to serve a captcha only when Akismet flags a comment, and delete the comment if the captcha isn't completed correctly, has reduced my spam to literally zero. I'm incredibly grateful.
