Adding captcha
« on: August 08, 2012, 17:30:47 pm »
Joomla version 1.5.22
VM version 1.1.8

How can I add a captcha function to the registration?
I need customers to register only on the way to checkout, not before.
Lately we're getting a lot of spam on the registration, so need something to stop that, and captcha would do it.
Can you please tell me where and what to add, please.

Regards / Gloria2

The KEYCaptcha solution was not ideal for my client. BUT, Joo ReCaptcha PRO worked like a charm for me. (had to buy PRO to get the Virtuemart support but for 10 Euros, not bad)
