How to enable reCaptcha for blocking spammers during registration in PHPFox Neutron

In order to increase the security and to prevent spam bots from creating fake profiles on your website you will need to take advantage of the reCaptcha human verification service. PHPFox Neutron comes fully integrated with that service and the only thing you will need to do is to enable it.

 

In this tutorial we will illustrate how to enable and configure the reCaptcha human verification method in just two easy to follow steps.

 

Step 1 Generate reCaptcha Keys

First before you can begin configuring the feature you will need to have the appropriate keys issued. These are two randomly generated strings called Public key and Private key. These should be generated at:

 

www.google.com/recaptcha

 

Click on the Get reCAPTCHA button at the top right corner.

 

Register for Google's reCaptcha

 

This will direct you to a registration form which you must fill:

  • Domains - Note that your registration is restricted to te domains you enter in this field, plus any subdomains. Put your domain name here.
  • Owners - Emaill account of the owner of the domain.

 

Once you have entered the correct information click on the Register button. Next you will be directed to your just generated Public key and Private key.
