    So, I have a classifieds site and one mofo sending a lot of nike and all that shit spam (probably using some program). I don't have any captcha now, basically it is possible to send inquiry without any captchas. But I think it is about time to do something about this and add a captcha on each form, because in the future more mofos are going to send spam like this.

    Any plugin can help for this?

    Are you using a plugin for rendering the form(assuming you are using wp / joomla / drupal)? Or is it a custom one? Installing a CAPTCHA is not that tough. Try Re-Captcha Library.

    No, i'm not using any plugins for that form. The script code already was installed in my template. I'm using WP.

    He has a custom form. It would be tough to implement captcha on the fly. do_shortocde() can do the trick though.

    So basically I need to upload that "recaptchalib.php" file to my theme folder where my files are, and later open that file (that form code file) and add those lines mentioned below on that page? The rest I understand how to edit those lines with my keys, etc...
