    im having a large number of bogus signups – is ther any way to add a captcha to the registration form or force an email confirmation?

    #1856

    The bogus signups come from your default WordPress registration forms (wp-login.php?action=register) and not from Profile Builder’s registration pages.

    We have plants to implement a integrated Capcha for Profile Builder Pro but until that’s done please use the Captcha plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/captcha/

    Please note by default it also adds a captcha to your comments form. It is possible that might not work by default with your theme and nobody will be able to post comments. Just disable that function and you should be good to go.

    This is what we’re using on Cozmoslabs and it’s working just fine.

    This is ABSOLUTELY incorrect. I’ve added the captcha plugin and it’s working fine on the backend, but I’ve had roughly 70 bogus signups in the past 4 days since going live on my current website. I’d rather not spend hours of my time implementing a reCaptcha form or simple captcha form inside your plugin when this is clearly something that should have been thought through prior to creating a pro version. Can we get the status of this feature?

    Hello Josh,
    we will definitely implement a captcha form upon registration, but unfortunately the next release is already scheduled to be released this week, so the at the latest we will release a little “patch” with added reCaptcha form.

    Hi, also I am in needing of a Captcha form in the registration page of PB.
    Would also have to change the default email for registering users.
    Those features would really complete Profile Builder plugin as a solid and full software.

    Can you make a job quotation for those functions? I would need them in 3 working days, for Thursday.
    Please let me know

    Hello Steven,
    we made a function to add a recaptcha form, but the hook needed to display it will only be available in the next update, which will be released in a few weeks.
    What I can do (if you need this badly) is send over a prototype that already has the needed hook, and you can put a recaptcha form in your registration page.

    Hello all,
    I will turn this topic into a tutorial once the new version of PB is released, but until then:
    1) overwrite the registration file in your plugin_dir/front-end/ folder with this one: https://bitbucket.org/axeman_gabriel/profile-builder-beta/downloads/wppb.register.php

    2) unzip the following archive and add it in your WP plugins dir: https://bitbucket.org/axeman_gabriel/profile-builder-beta/downloads/PBreCaptcha.zip

    3) add the following code to your active theme’s functions.php file: https://bitbucket.org/axeman_gabriel/profile-builder-beta/downloads/recaptch_code.php

    If anyone has some trouble with this, let me know.

    Hello all,

    so the code I posted was an older project. Anyway I will look into it tomorrow, but just a notice:
    you need to set the private and public key; you get these from the signup page (https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/list)

    #2855

    Hello all,

    I just tried it out again, and it worked as intended.
    A few notes:
    1) I am using twentyten theme, although it shouldn’t matter at all
    2)please be sure you use a personalized private and public key and make the needed changes.

    I will keep you posted, as the new update will be out in max 2 weeks.
