This should have been posted in the recaptcha plugin thread. (which by itself might need to be split...)
 
now I need to know how to activate it ...www.jefflarsen.com/gallery
It is activated. I tested the registration captcha for both bad / good input. It worked. You now have a user named test that you can delete.

.... stop the bots?
The recaptcha plugin will slow down automatic spammers / bots, but will not stop humans from posting spam. Keep that in mind as you use the plugin, because there are more than just a few human spammers.

www.jefflarsen.com/gallery
..... if you have a password protected gallery that has an issue in a password protected page then post a test user account OR create an unprotected test gallery.
It is impossible to see / test your comments captcha without a password...but because you have the Registration captcha working you should be fine.
In the future try to remember that a test user account is very helpful in diagnosing problems.

Joe, Thanks for the help.  All good suggestions. Recaptcha ended about 98 percent of my spam while operating a 1.4xv version.  Looks like it's already working again. I found the very well managed plugin after poking around with searches and got it working on my own just before you tested it. Also noticed the plugin on the main CPG website list of plugins.  Wrapping up my upgrade as we speak.  Thanks again.

May I merge these threads, Joe?

Yes please
I am also not sure if my plugin should belong in SaWey's thread any longer because it has become very different...

Release of Version 2.0

    Changelog
    • Bug fix for logged user
    • Add help text above captcha - set in config
    • Style improvements for different R/C themes
    • Multiple lines in Comments - set in config. 1 - 9 lines.

    Thanks to Michael Martin for the multiline idea and snip (the plugins would have clashed, this is somewhat different and includes a workaround for a Firefox line count issue)

    This should be the last and final version of this plugin barring any glaring bugs.

    Sorry but years back my coppermine gallery was hacked and after looking through my logs it was found that the way the perpetrators found the gallery was by searching google for that footer signature. After that it was removed.

    Hi,

    I just upgraded from 1.4.x to 1.5.12 and installed reCaptcha and it seems to be working ok on the comments but the registration piece does not seem to be on at all.

    Where can I start to troubleshoot?

    Thank you in advance.

    Nevermind, found the problem.  Well not so much a problem but didn't realize I was supposed to enable it in the config page.  =)

    Well I guess I spoke too soon.  While the captcha confirmation now shows up on the registration page, it is not required to be filled in for registration.

    Any suggestions?

    I updated from 1.1 to 2.0 version of my plugin, but not working with 1.5.16.  :-[
    Older gallery version worked, but now I click on button under registration, but code not show, nothing happened.
    What's my problem?

    Ok, I found a solution: you need uninstall older version first, and reinstall again this plugin, and will work. Thanks!

    Just to let you know. The link to get recaptcha keys didn't work. I got a "not found 404" error.
    I was able to go to the recaptcha site and get the key manually.

    Thanks for the plugin. I was getting loads of spam with the standard captcha.
    Hopefully, this helps.

    Thanks, Joe.

    Thanks for that information. It will be fixed on the next release.

    To get the free reCaptcha keys from Google see this link:

    I don't know what's wrong, but when I upload this through plugin manager, nothing happens. It does not show up on plugin list and so I cannot enable it.
    I am using CP 1.5.x

    Does the same thing occur when you upload other zipped plugins?

    Have you looked at your document package about alternative uploading?

    If you need more, please post a link to your Coppermine.
