Add-On Type(s)



solveCAPTCHA is an extension that replaces the built-in captcha with the solve media captcha system on member registration and comment forms. This captcha allows you to re-purpose your commenting and new member registration captchas for use as an advertisement.

To sign up for a new account or more information about Solve Media you can visit Solve Media site.
This is not a first party supported module, but I will try to assist with troubleshooting if you need it.  Credit to Brandon Jones for creating the original reCAPTCHA.

1. Unzip and place the ‘solvecaptcha’ folder in /system/expressionengine/third_party

2. From the control panel, click Add-Ons > Extensions and enable the solveCAPTCHA extension

3. Click the Settings link and enter your domain’s Private, Challenge, and Hash solveCAPTCHA keys.

4. Anywhere that a captcha field appears all you need to have is:

{if captcha}
