Adding reCAPTCHA to your BlogEngine.net site.

by Abe Miessler 3. March 2010 07:15

After being hit by a barage of spam comments I decided it was time to look at adding CAPTCHA to AbeMiester.com

NOTE TO GOOGLE: I am in no way affiliated with any organizations trying to buy gold, sell miniture bicycles(wtf?) or hawk a natural cure for acne.

I did some research and finally settled on reCAPTCHA for my anti-Bot needs.  reCAPTCHA is a free CAPTCHA service that actually helps to digitize aging books, newspapers and radio broadcasts for future generations.  The way they do this is actually quite facinting and I recommend you read more about it.

While the process of adding reCAPTCHA to your average website is quite simple, I found that adding it to BlogEngine.NET was fairly difficult.  Luckily for me Filip Stanek did an excellent post on integrating reCAPTCHA into your BlogEngine.net website.  He provides instructions on how to do it quick and dirty as well as details as to exactly what was changed.

If you've been having spam comment problems on your BlogEngine.net site I'd highly recommend you looking into adding reCAPTCHA!
