    CAPTCHA type-a-thing!


    I just had a quick question. I want to add a captcha to my website to help reduce the amount of spam we are getting through the inquiry form. Unfortunately I do not like the standard captcha that is offered. The words are too hard to read, and I am afraid I will lose inquiries because of it.

    What I am looking to do is make a specific word required in a text field. For example, there will be a question that I come up with, say a math problem, 2 + 2 = ?, and the user has to put in 4 for the form to submit. If they put anything other then the correct answer in my form, it wont send. How do I do this? Are there any easy ways you guys can help me out with?

    Thanks for you help,

    Could I suggest a different CAPTCHA? The "honeypot" works better and doesn't require the human user to do anything. If you want, I've written about it on my site, which you'll find the link to in my signature. The post is for Wordpress, but the concept works for any form.
