To prevent automated software – known as spambots – from creating bogus accounts or bombarding your blog or forum with spam posts and comments, you can enable Wild Apricot's anti-spam Captcha feature. You can enable or disable Captcha separately for different types of forms, including membership application forms, event registration forms, forum posts, and blog comments.
With Captcha enabled, visitors to your site will have to enter a set of characters – proving them to be a person rather than a program – before they can submit the form.
To enable Captcha for different types of forms, go to Settings, and click Anti-spam settings (Captcha) under Security. On the screen that appears, click the checkbox beside the desired form types then click Save changes.
You can enable Captcha for forms that are visible to the public, just members, or both.
