Using ReCAPTCHA - Obsolete

:exclamation: This documentation is for WeBlog 4.0.x and ealier. Is it not relevant to latest WeBlog releases.

WeBlog by default uses MSCaptcha for comment spam prevention. You may prefer to use Google's reCAPTCHA because of its security, for consistency with other CAPTCHA use on your site, or because you want to help digitize books.

Enabling reCAPTCHA with WeBlog can be accomplished in just a few steps:

  1. In the Entry template's Standard Values, remove the SitecoreCaptcha sublayout
  2. Add the reCAPTCHA sublayout to the phBlogCommentForm placeholder
  3. Uncomment the reCAPTCHA settings in WeBlog.config and enter your reCAPTCHA keys (obtained from the reCAPTCHA website)
  4. Publish and test

You may also simply remove the !SitecoreCaptcha sublayout in order to disable CAPTCHA entirely (e.g. for an intranet).
