Custom Captcha Possible?

    Hi, Gravity Forms looks good! But, sorry, ReCaptcha is too ugly for me -- is there any alternative Captcha functionality, some other tool that looks elegant instead of clunky? I'm currently using Tectite Formmail which supports beautiful custom Captchas generated by Captcha Creator: http://www.captchacreator.com/

    Is Gravity Forms compatible with Captcha Creator or something similar?

    Anybody home? Someone (at Gravity Forms) must know about this. Help please.

  3. Currently Gravity Forms does not support any other captcha method with the exception of a simple math challenge question you can implement using the numeric field.

    We are interested in expanding this functionality by implementing other captcha methods so we will take a look at the Captcha Creator site you referenced. Thanks!

    Yes! Please investigate Captcha Creator as soon as possible. You might want to look at Tectite Formmail as an example (the PHP code is freely visible); Formmail fully supports Captcha Creator. As an anti-spam measure, I've found Captcha essential, but there must be customization available to fit the design of various sites. Captcha Creator is easy to use and works great. Thanks!

  5. Hi, if possible... maybee just the same as the most used WP Plugin Contact Form 7 uses: Really Simple CAPTCHA. I have never had any problems with that one and no spam two!

  6. Hi Carl,
    you wrote: "Currently Gravity Forms does not support any other captcha method with the exception of a simple math challenge question you can implement using the numeric field."
    like 2+2 = ? with no variation or ?

    I cannot use the ugly captcha, I have a great monitor and pretty good eyes, but sometimes I have problems reading this captcha. I dont want my customers to run away because of a ugly captcha. Any chance that this will change soon?

    Please add my name to the list requesting this feature.

    I had a developer license for GravityForms and use it for almost all of my client work but i'm now having to look for alternatives for my most high profile site design yet. The reason is because the client simply won't accept the way 'Recapture' looks.

    Any of the above alternatives would be suitable so please get them integrated into GravityForms as soon as possible!

    Thanks for an otherwise great plugin!

  8. Another request for alternative any spam measures.

    Re Captcha, while great for certain purposes, is visually demanding and can also throw some curveballs - just now I got "Police Crapping" as the captcha. I have clients who would not be impressed at users having to type this in to contact them.

    A wider variety of anti spam options would be great... would I be lynched if I referenced cforms captcha and questions options? :P

    Cheers,
    Frank

  9. How about taking advantage of Cookies for Comments?

  10. Find form_detail.php

    Goto line number: 581

    You Should Have:
    <option value="clean"><?php _e("Clean", "gravityforms"); ?></option>

    After Paste This:
    <option value="custom"><?php _e("custom", "gravityforms"); ?></option>

    Edit your form, and select "custom" as the theme.

    Then add an HTML "Field" and paste the code that's required to display the reCaptcha, ie:

    <div id="recaptcha_widget">
        <div id="recaptcha_image"></div>
        <input type="text" id="recaptcha_response_field" name="recaptcha_response_field" />
    </div>

    And then use your custom code as per:
    http://code.google.com/apis/recaptcha/docs/customization.html

    For a visual confirmation that you've selected the custom theme you can add an image like this one: http://www.dijitul.co.uk/resources/captcha_custom.jpg

    To your gravityforms plugin image folder, generally found at:
    /wp-content/plugins/gravityforms/images

    Hope this helps people, it's a little more advanced than it has to be, but it does allow you to fully customise reCaptcha!

  11. This information is outdated. You can now do this with Gravity Forms stock without doing the acrobatics described above.

    Just FYI for anyone who stumbles upon this thread in the future.
