FunCaptcha v2
The biggest update to FunCaptcha yet has begun its official rollout!

For a detailed look at the ongoing updates, feel free to follow our blog as we'll be updating it as new features are activated, going in-depth with what's changing, why and how each area is seeing improvement.

Description
Spammers abuse your site, but users hate typing out twisty letters or ad phrases (aka CAPTCHA and reCAPTCHA). Automated spam filters make mistakes and require constant checking. FunCaptcha presents a mini-game that blocks the bots while giving your users a few moments of fun. It's a real security solution hardened by experts and automatically updated to provide the best protection. It has been installed on thousands of sites, to glowing reviews. Try a demo on our site!

Users complete these little games faster than other CAPTCHAs, with fewer frustrating failures and no typing. They work on all browsers and mobile devices, using HTML5 with a fallback to Flash. Visually impaired users can complete an audio challenge. For a limited time, FunCaptcha can be customized for your site, using its color scheme, images, and logo. See this special offer for details.

Read about FunCaptcha on NBC. Learn more, give feedback, and ask questions at our website. Our epic battle against bots doesn't have to be a headache. Let's fight while having some fun!

We're also a partner of stopforumspam.com and use their API to raise the difficulty of FunCaptcha for suspect bots.

Installation
  1. Download and unzip funcaptcha_vbulletin.zip
  2. Upload the contents in the upload folder to your /includes/ directory.
  3. In your vBullet Adminstrator Control Panel, click on "Pugins & Products" and then click "Manage Products".
  4. Click Add/Import Product.
  5. Click choose file and select product-funcaptcha.xml from the download.
  6. On the top left sidebar, click "Settings" then click "Human Verification Manager".
  7. Select "FunCaptcha".
  8. Click "Save".
  9. Scroll down and register your FunCaptcha using the form.
  10. Copy the keys from the completed form into the FunCaptcha plugin settings.
  11. Click "save".

Patch notes:
1.2.1
Toggle JavaScript fallback on/off (disabled by default for security reasons). We recommend it disabled as bots generally browse with JavaScript disabled.
1.2.0
Color themes. You can now change the look of FunCaptcha!
Support for versions of PHP without JSON or CURL.
Proxy server support.
1.1.0
Lightbox mode. This exposes a new display mode for FunCaptcha, it will make FunCaptcha appear when your user hits submit, rather than inline in the form.
1.0.0
First release.

This is great, I can't understand why it has so few installs. I used to use reCapture and had loads of complaints that people could not read it. This is easy to use and keeps the spammers out. What more could you wish for.

Very glad you like it, Peter! We have not done anything to promote it here yet, doing a kind of soft launch. The number of installs should climb quite a bit once we start to promote it. Meanwhile, it's great to hear from you.

1.1 update

Hello everyone,

We have just issued an update - version 1.1 of our plugin. This exposes a new mode for FunCaptcha, it will make FunCaptcha appear when your user hits submit, rather than inline in the form (though you can choose that old mode still if you'd like in the settings!).

You can see an example of it on our websites registration form

I have attached a picture of this mode being shown on vBulletin.


Regards,
FunCaptcha Team

1.2 update

Hello everyone,

I'd like to announce we are now a partner of stopforumspam.com and use their API to scale the difficulty of FunCaptcha even further, so if your user is a listed bot, they'll get a harder challenge.

We have also just updated our plugin to version 1.2.

This update includes some new features.

Firstly and mainly, we have added support to change the color scheme of FunCaptcha, currently there are 4 options.

We have also added support for versions of PHP without CURL and JSON support and some other misc bug fixes, as well as now including a version check URL.

Any questions or feature requests, please let us know!

Kind regards,
FunCaptcha team

Hi WEBDosser,

We have a range of forums using VB 3.8.5, did you want to send me an email at support@funcaptcha.com and I can help you directly setting it up and to resolve any issues you have?

Warm regards,
Kevin

Does work.. A little different to the instructions though, as it opens a new window for the captcha after you click on complete registration at the bottom.

Sorry about that, the client was insistent it didn't work.

Hi WEBDosser,

Great to hear. There is a setting in the plugin to make it appear on the page if you prefer that, it's called Lightbox mode in some versions and Popup mode in other versions. If you change it to "Inline" mode, it will appear in the form itself, rather than on submission!

Regards,
Kevin
