I’m using an S2Member custom registration form and note that the only supported form of verification is to use Google’s Recaptcha service.
Quite aside from the fact that any form of support for Google is dubious, given that they are allegedly in cahoots with the spying US government and consistently fail to refute this evil (sorry, I work in security, what can I say?), their two word Capcha images are nothing like as usable as that from, say Si-Capcha. Otherwise, the Recaptcha service is unreliable, often throwing 404’s.
So might an alternative option be added please?
Personally, I’d like simply to use the “Math required” option which is dead simple and probably least likely to stop people from registering … might this be hacked for templates somehow?
Otherwise, and for those also searching for alternatives, the Stop Spammers plugin doesn’t natively work with s2 but Jason’s hacked it superbly. You can check that out at https://www.s2member.com/forums/topic/stopping-human-registration-spam/.
(Sorry for the rant but we’ve got to stop supporting intrusive political agendas, for the sake of OUR free web.)
