Eric Meyer: WP-Gatekeeper: A more accessible CAPTCHA solution to prevent comment Spam in WordPress. Interesting solution that has been tried before and has had mixed reviews from users. [EDIT] Interesting twist I did not quite catch at first glance My goal was to create a system … rotates between as many challenges as one cares to set up. It could be just one challenge, or a set of 100. So a blog could ask for the blogname, the author’s name and the day of the week, for example.

    Could you point to some of the previous tries, and some of the user reactions? I’d appreciate it.

    Jeff Barr had a solution sometime ago:

    WP Hashcash is a javascript solution:

    Though hashcash is not quite the same, I know that there is at least one more that I am forgetting. I will post more as and when I think of them.

    Thanks, Mark. I’ve been using WP-hashcash with great success, but it does slam the door on those with JavaScript turned off, and that bothered me. You’re also right that it isn’t quite the same.

    What Jeff Barr does is basically the same, except it’s static from what I can see. My goal was to create a system that does what Jeff is doing, but rotates between as many challenges as one cares to set up. It could be just one challenge, or a set of 100.
