Recently I started to get a lot of spam bot signup on my Tips and Tricks HQ forum. This forum is powered by bbPress so I started to look for a bbPress plugin that would enable reCAPTCHA on the forum registration page to stop these bot signups. Sadly the one plugin that I did find wouldn’t work on my site. So I wrote my own bbPress reCaptcha plugin.
The bbCaptcha plugin adds reCAPTCHA to the registration page of your bbPress forum.
Installation & Usage
- Unzip and Upload the folder ‘bb-captcha’ to the ‘my-plugins’ directory.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in bbPress.
- Go to Settings menu of bbCaptcha plugin and add the reCAPTCHA keys. You can get reCAPTCHA keys here if you don’t have it already for your site.
