mojoPortal has implemented many features in order to provide security for its users. One of those features is the CAPTCHA test. We’ll cover a few of the places this can be activated in a mojoPortal site, and ways it can be configured.
For those who aren’t familiar with CAPTCHA: “A CAPTCHA is a type of challenge-response test used in computing as an attempt to ensure that the response is generated by a person. The process usually involves a computer asking a user to complete a simple test which the computer is able to grade. These tests are designed to be easy for a computer to generate, but difficult for a computer to solve, so that if a correct solution is received, it can be presumed to have been entered by a human.” – Wikipedia
One of the first places a mojoPortal user may encounter a CAPTCHA is the registration/login page. The settings to activate CAPTCHA for these areas is located in Administration/Site Settings; you’ll find checkboxes for each option at the bottom of the page under the Security>Main tabs. You can also activate CAPTCHA in the Blog comment areas, by selecting “Enable SPAM blocking” under the Comment System settings.
MojoPortal supports three different versions of CAPTCHA: Simple Math, Subkismet and reCaptcha. These options may be selected under the Site Settings/Security tab.
