Antispam plugin

  • Hi

    I need to know what captcha & antispam plugins people are using with their v1.0 BuddyPress sites. I am after a captcha-type plugin to prevent bots making spam user accounts, and also antispam for comments.

    I tried reCaptcha but couldn’t get it to work as its Admin menu item wasn’t in any of the menus.

    Hi DJPual-

    I’m currently using (with success) the reCaptcha plugin on a dev site. I used hints from these two BP forum threads:

    I hope that helps!

    Hi Jeff

    Yeah I tried that, but I couldn’t even see the reCaptcha menu item in the Admin after enabled it. I assume you’re using WPMU 2.7.1 – did you put reCaptcha into mu-plugins/ or plugins/, and did you enable it Site Wide or only on the main blog?

    I have it installed as a site-wide plugin in /mu-plugins/. Works well with signup process. I have not really experimented with the blog comments aspect though. Perhaps I need to look into this a little more.

    i’ve moved it in mu-plugins/… but where I configure? menu in the wp-admin is not there … help me please :)

    Possible user error.

    @Arturo – check this from the readme. You might have missed it to.

    To install in WordPress MU (Forced Activation/Site-Wide):

    1. Upload the wp-recaptcha folder to the /wp-content/mu-plugins directory

    1. **Move** the wp-recaptcha.php file out of the wp-recaptcha folder so that it is in /wp-content/mu-plugins

    1. Now you should have /wp-content/mu-plugins/wp-recaptcha.php and /wp-content/mu-plugins/wp-recaptcha/

    1. Go to the administrator menu and then go to **Site Admin > reCAPTCHA**

    1. Get the reCAPTCHA keys [here](http://recaptcha.net/api/getkey?domain=www.blaenkdenum.com&app=wordpress \”reCAPTCHA API keys\”) and/or the MailHide keys [here](http://mailhide.recaptcha.net/apikey \”MailHide keys\”)
