BOTCHA Spam Prevention | drupal.org

BOTCHA lets spambots to prove they are bots, and let real users zip by.

BOTCHA is useful for any form that has to be protected from spambots.
How it works

The approach of BOTCHA is to add various elements to forms that need protection from bots. These elements do not present new fields to users, so BOTCHA is completely transparent to humans. Both humans and bots submit those forms and BOTCHA performs heuristic analysis on each submitted form. Bots are usually programs/scripts that are relatively dumb, and most of the time they fail BOTCHA tests and human users don't.

WordPress Plugins that stand the Test of Time

Mon, 11/17/2008 - 21:24 -- rprice

I've been engaging in a personal project recently to get all my OLD wordpress sites upgraded to 2.6 and on the latest versions of plugins and such. This has helped me notice that there are things I'd like to do with the software that it doesn't do by itself, either because of 3rd party services or for SEO reasons.
