    Does JotForms have any control over Capcha words?

    Asked by BaitMeTreats on January 28, 2011 at 01:02 PM

    We sell dog and cat treats and today I was working on a form and the word that the customer would have to type in on the form was 'poison' - obviously not a good word to have at the bottom of a form where someone is about to purchase food for their pet! Any way to control these words?

     

    Thanks,

    Are you using the plain CAPTCHA or RECAPTCHA?

    If this isn't already a feature it should definitely be one! 

     

    I'm implementing membership forms for a couple of university student groups and would love to include some relevant memes to the target audience.

    I don't think JotForm has any control over what words are shown in RECAPTCHA but they might be able to control (or better yet, allow users to control) which words cannot be displayed in the regular CAPTCHA.

    I only know about CAPTCHA - I just used whatever the option was when I created the form so I am guessing its regular.

     

    Thanks!

    Yes, that's the regular CAPTCHA. You can enable RECAPTCHA anytime by going to that form's edit page and clicking the CAPTCHA field. On the "Properties" tab of the toolbar above the form, you will see a button named reCaptcha. Clicking it will turn your regular CAPTCHA field into a RECAPTCHA one and clicking it again will revert it. In other words, it's a toggle switch.

    so does enabling ReCaptcha allow control over the words which will appear?

     

    Thanks!

    From what I've seen so far on their developer forum, apparently not.

    I may have to just delete it from our forms...after the word 'poison' came up we got another winner - and I kid you not (should take screenshots next time) one of our distributors had the word 'deadly' - its almost a joke if it were funny!

    Yes, in your case that might well be the best option. If you don't normally get much spam, there's no need to use any CAPTCHA. Plus, it will be one less step for your clients to complete the form.
