Introduced the CAPTCHA module

Hmm, while Google is crawling more of my pages, a lot more bots are contacting my site too :p. There are putting SPAM comments and sending me SPAM mail. At a certain point, I received 1000 mails in 1 hour, so I changed permissions that a guest user is not able to post anything.

But, in my opinion, it's really stupid to ask a visitor to register on my site for just putting a comment, or just contacting me using the "Contact form".

So I've installed the Captcha module. I configured the module that it will ask the user a small MATH calculation:

I don't like the "Image" calculation (the user has to type a word that is displayed in an image). As the image is most of the times unclear, the user will get tired of trying to fill up the captcha field.

Anywayz, all visitors are welcome again to comment and mail me ;-) !

  • You can caption images (data-caption="Text"), but also videos, blockquotes, and so on.
  • Web page addresses and email addresses turn into links automatically.
  • You can enable syntax highlighting of source code with the following tags: <code>, <blockcode>, <bash>, <cpp>, <css>, <html5>, <java>, <javascript>, <php>, <sql>, <xml>. The supported tag styles are: <foo>, [foo].
This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions.
