Hi, I am new to WordPress.I need to add captcha in my site just before the comments section. Wherever there is comments, I need to display the captcha. I do not have a form. How can I do it?

  • should I add any code on the comments.php file?

    A captcha is pointless without a form. This doesn't make sense.

Actually there are a lot of solution for this. Simply a google could answer you the whole. And also WordPress plugin repository could help you. But to pinpoint, you can use Plugins easily. Try anyone of them:

And also, Akismet is a very good plugin to get the spam out of a WordPress site. And the good news is: Akismet is freely distributed with WordPress.

  • I tried a lot, but all that I am getting is captcha for a comment form. But I actually need is a captcha for comments only. My site does not have a form

    I'm afraid, thing is not clear to me. Where there's no comment form, how the comments are gathered? And if there are the comments already, why do you need a captcha for already-posted-comments? Oct 10 '13 at 3:46
  • oh sry, can you just tell me where to put the captcha code in twenty thirteen theme

  • I think what the plugin1 and the plugin2 are suggesting is just a check-mark on the right thing, it will automatically do that for you. Oct 10 '13 at 4:28
