Add a Captcha to the JetPack email sending form • WordPress Help

There are millions of sites that have installed and running the mega plugin JetPack which offers in a single installation many of the features that almost every user wants in a WordPress. But such ease sometimes generates problems .

And that is that, as I have said many times, JetPack offers a bit of everything, but not the best of each house . It includes many utilities, but mostly much less configurable than any other specialized plugin . However, some adjustments can be made.

One of them is related to the utility Share of JetPack which offers us the typical buttons for visitors to share your publications on their favorite social networks. In particular I refer to the icon for share by email .

Yes, that is fine, but so simple that some soulless can use a bot to send spam with links to your website with what it might seem that you are generating garbage, or at least the image of your website would go badly wrong .

And since we already saw that you can add services in which to share from JetPack add an icon to share on Whatsapp, or even like remove the counter from times that a post has been shared, we can also add a Captcha system specifically Google reCaptcha to the form that is displayed when someone shares your post by email from the button correspondent.

Besides that is bast Before easy to do, the steps are as follows:

1. Register your site on Google's reCaptcha and get the public and secret key

Go to this page and click on the button Get reCaptcha .

 create recaptcha

The following screen asks you for a series of data, of which the truly important and unique is that of the domain – or domains – to which you want to associate the reCaptcha

 record recaptcha 1

Decide to which domain to associate the Captcha and place an email of your own and click on the button Record .

In the next and last screen it shows you, first of all, a pair of keys, the Site key and the Private key .

 record recaptcha 2

Write them down, you'll need them right now.

2. Add the reCaptcha keys to wp-config.php

Open to edit the WordPress configuration file wp-config.php and add the following two lines:

Of course, there are a couple of things that you should replace with the keys you just got in reCaptcha . You save the changes and you already have it.

The next time someone shares an email from your site you will have to prove that they are human and not a malignant machine .

If you want, since you have created the reCaptcha, on the same page where you got the keys you have the procedure to manually add this system to any other part of your site if you wish.

Unfortunately, you can not add this functionality to the sites, only in your hosted, free and complete WordPress .

How to migrate from WordPress to Blogger

Let's see, it's not that I promote it, rather you know that I usually recommend the opposite, but as you have to know everything in this life , and is part of the things that WordPress allows, let's see what would be the opposite process to the recommended one, how to migrate from WordPress to Blogger .

1. Export

The first thing is to export the entries, comments, labels, etc. of your WordPress (think about it, he would not do it, ah! What do you want to follow ?, OK, let's go …)

  1. Go to the window ' Tools -> Export ' from WordPress and save the XML file on your hard drive

Ea, you're done, remember that this is WordPress yet and in a couple of clicks you do almost everything. [19659007]2. Conversion

Unlike WordPress, which allows you to import from a large number of services, Blogger needs to be able to recognize the exported file, so we will have to convert it to something that Blogger can recognize.

For this we have to go to the application web that you will find in . There, in addition to the steps for migration (in English) you have a WordPress converter to Blogger. Simply upload your newly exported file and then click on the "Convert" button. Ojo!, The converter says it only works for files of less than 1 Mb, if your export file is bigger you will have to make a fix . However, I have uploaded a file of more than 2 Mb and it has worked, try to see if you are lucky, like me.

Once the export process finishes, the web application saves a file with HTML extension on your computer. , called ' blogger-export.xml.html ' that Blogger will recognize. Let's check it out.

3. Import

Now you have to go to the Blogger desktop and click on the "Create a blog" button or, if you already have it, access the Blogger import tool, choose the resulting file of the conversion, you fill in the captcha and press the "Import blog" button and wait for the green bar to finish moving.

At the end you will have created the entries, pages and comments, forget about categories and labels, that this does not is WordPress, and your blog on Blogger created in a few clicks.

And now, now that you already know how to migrate from WordPress to Blogger do not do it!

style, options and anti-spam • WordPress Help

I have been bothering Fernando for quite some time in search of a simple and easy captcha . As for moderating comments I solved it with Askimet and plugins; but the spam in wp-login.php and people who register from Russia (?) has tired me!

This time, I found a very complete and easy plugin to customize the registry , login and user profile in our WordPress .

This is Register Plus a very complete plugin that besides the much needed anti-spam in the wp-login, brings many options to customize it …

Register Plus allows you to configure from records where the user chooses their password and can complete their profile; captcha, customize the e-mail and send a confirmation URL (registration is completed, X is eliminated), it also includes adding more custom fields (age, dates, city, etc.) and being able to edit the CSS of the registration template.

As if that were not enough, not only is it limited to that, it also offers to insert a disclaimer (regulation, privacy policies, etc.) and have the user accept them to continue; choose which section will be redirected after registering and login (to the index, or perhaps to a page with benefits or exclusive content); let us customize the logo create referral codes (type "invitations") and it's totally free !!

It's very simple and easy, although it's in English I translated some parts with Google, and I set it up . In 10 minutes you can already have it running: download it, upload it via FTP, activate the plugin; in the WordPress panel, you access 'Settings' (options) and from there you modify everything.

You can see the functions and images (in English) and download from the repository from WordPress .

End SPAM definitely • WordPress Help

 no_spam_200.jpg Much has been said about the virtues of Akismet to stop the excess of comments from WordPress spammers . However, there are still pending approval, not always correct … leaving real comments on hold … and is not, shall we say, perfect.

Well, your problems are over because there is the perfect plugin for definitely avoid spam from bots, those programs that send spam automatically. It is called WP-SpamShield Anti-Spam .

Wp-SpamFree works as simply as possible, does not ask to answer questions nor does it captchas with images or anything like that. The operating philosophy is that most spam is generated by bots and very few of them are capable of processing JavaScript, and very few can process cookies. WP-SpamFree uses a combination of JavaScript and cookies that virtually avoids junk comments on your blog . That yes, it will not prevent "human" visitors from leaving any comment out of tune, etc.

It seems a lie of pure simple that it is but the most surprising thing is that it works, the result is zero spam Definitely.

And what's better is that you do not have to configure anything nor edit any file of your template, does not overload your blog or slow it down because it does not use calls to the database of any kind and does not interfere either with plugins like WP-Caché and the like.

The installation is as always, automatic, or if you prefer manual:

  1. Download the plugin and unzip it
  2. Upload the folder wp-spamfree to / wp-content / plugins /
  3. Activate it in Administration> Plugins

AND … adios spam

Hacked the Yahoo CAPTCHA

CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing Test to Tell Computers and Humans Apart – Fully Automated Public Turing Test to Separate Humans and Computers) is that box that we find in many blogs and registration services for avoid receiving SPAM of atomized systems .

If you use a system of these in your blog you should know that it is possible that soon only Akismet can stop the unstoppable concern of spammers to fill your advertising blog and comment soeces.

In addition, since the CAPTCHAS recognition engine has been published on the network it is possible that similar applications are developed, even suitable for novices. A real threat.
