WordPress Plugin – New Captcha Plugin

by Elaine on March 9, 2012

WordPress plugin – Someone complained that my captcha was really annoying and after trying to submit some comments myself, I found that it was a little annoying. So I went searching for a new CAPTCHA plugin to use for my Thesis website. I found this math one that I thought was interesting. I do like the math challenges and glad I don’t have to take out my calculator for them. I love my new free CAPTCHA so far, if you are interested in trying it out, below is where it is and how to install it.

Overview of how to Install CAPTCHA on your Wordpress website:
