reCAPTCHA is an extension that allows the integration of the reCAPTCHA anti-spam CAPTCHA service in your eZ publish content objects. reCAPTCHA provides a reCAPTCHA datatype that can be used in editing content and information collection. reCAPTCHA provides both text and audio CAPTCHAs.


 Over 60 million CAPTCHAs are solved every day by people around the world. reCAPTCHA channels this human effort into helping to digitize books from the Internet Archive. When you solve a reCAPTCHA, you help preserve literature by
 deciphering a word that was not readable by computers. reCAPTCHA is a project of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.


Development of this extension has moved to github:


Follow these steps to add the reCAPTCHA module to your eZ publish installation:

  1. Extract the archive into the /extension directory
  2. Edit site.ini.append in /settings/override. Add the following to the file:
    If you already have the [ExtensionSettings] block, just add the second line.
  3. Visit to signup and get your own API keys
  4. Edit extension/settings/recaptcha.ini.append.php and add your API keys
  5. Clear Cache


To use, simply add a reCAPTCHA attribute to your content class.

NB: Depending on the which content class you add the reCAPTCHA attribure to you may have to edit the templates for that content class to add the new attribute.
