Out of the box FlatPress provides captcha protection to comments via Accessible Antispam.

In an effort to give something back to the community and hopefully help with the digitization of books I have developed reCaptcha for FlatPress.

To use the plugin follow these steps.

  • Register with reCAPTCHA to obtain the public and private keys required for the service
  • Download reCaptcha for FlatPress
  • Extract the contents of reCaptcha for Flatpress to a suitable folder (e.g. recaptcha) under fp-plugins
  • In the Administration area enable the reCaptcha for FlatPress plugin
  • Go the the reCaptcha configuration screen and enter the public and private keys obtained earlier.
  • Finally, if you have Accessible Antispam enabled then disable it

Version 1.1 of the plugin now makes the four standard reCAPTCHA themes and eight languages (English, Dutch, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish) available. In addition, support for Italian has been added to the plugin using this mechanism (with thanks to Roberto Rossi).

    What am I doing wrong?

    I downloaded the plug in to /fp-plugins/recaptcha. It does not show up in my plugin control panel?

    Figured it out. Easy as pie when you are in the right directory.

    Sorry I did not respond before you sorted it!

    Hi, Thanks for the great plugin! Works instantly.

    I created a german language file (only frontend messages for now). If i'm done translating it complete i'll send it to you. At the moment i'm busy and it was only important to me to have german frontend messages :-)

    Hi Daniel,

    Glad to hear to plugin worked for you. It would be really great if you can provide a German translation - even front end only would be good.

    Hiya! Where did you get layout of this website? It is incredible :D

    The theme is based on the leggero theme shipped with FlatPress.
