Captcha/ Anti-Spam using Powercontent

Monday 27 October 2008 6:44:43 am - 6 replies

Hi Guys,

I'm wondering if anyone has been able to use any of the Captcha extensions whilst using the extension Powercontent. I have tried two so far with no success and I have read on the forums that it can't be done.

I'm using Powercontent to be able to add comments inline on a Blog, but my client is worried about Spam, so we are trying to provide a Captcha.

Has anyone had any experience with this, or at least point me in the right direction?

Hi Frederik

Maybe the currently available solutions don't work together with Powercontent, but I don't see a problem to make one that does work.

1. Create an image for 1-time-usage in the powercontent template
2. Include post fields for text & the unique image ID
3. When submitting, content/edit takes over, the captcha datatype checks if the entered text equals the text of the image, and the image gets removed on the server

I had another crack at using ez Human Captcha, and I got it working.
Thanks for a very quick reply

When doing some research on the topic of using the powercontent and recaptcha extensions together for anonymous user created content functionality I found this thread happy.gif Emoticon

At first afraid of hidden complications ... I thought I had a problem at first when trying to use it (Captcha content submitted was not received by ez).

Though I don't quite always understand it. After further testing I found I did not have a problem using the recaptcha extension and the powercontent extension.

Your mileage may very ...

I wanted to use powercontent to put data into a XML block and made a workaround:
