How about a kind of captcha or other image validation-functions embedded into webforms?

Hi John,

There's no built-in captcha system, you're right.
But if you need one, an extension is already available for this purpose :

Hi, the Captcha extension is said to be compatible with 3.4, 3.5.
What about 3.9? Anyone tested this yet?
What about ezwebin? Anyone tested this extension with that?

I installed and actived the extension but it does not work fine.

I tried to add the new attribute-datatype in my user register class but any "Captcha" attribute is in the list.

Any suggestion to resolve the problem? I work with 3.8.6 eZPublish version

Thanks for hints

i'm using antispam extension in 3.10 without problems.
did you enabled extension in settings/override?

I've tried using antispam extension, but for some reason the captcha images don't show.

I've checked the path to arial.ttf and also the length, but the captcha images still don't show. Is there anything else that I can try to get this working?

Hi John

Have you tried the reCAPTCHA extension? There is a version for both eZ 3 & 4.

I've attempted to install your extension(for comments) but it doesn't show up. Is there a field or extra code I need to add to comment.tpl in order to get this show up?

Hi John

Because the template for comments is a custom one, you'll have to add an "attribute_edit_gui"[1] to display the recaptcha. Someting like

{attribute_view_gui attribute=$object.data_map.recaptcha}

where recaptcha is the attribute identifier of the recaptcha attribute.

Hello Bruce,

I've had already tried using the code you provided, I tried attribute_edit_gui, but it doesn't work either.

A lot of people aren't very experienced in ezPublish, do you think you could provide a more explicit example on how to get this show in any override template?
