Spam attacks can be a dangerous threat. Harmful emails can threaten your users if intruders manage to post malicious links or attach an infected file into the comment section of your website. On the other hand, thousands of hacked machines can unite in a vast botnet focused on shutting down your site or hack users’ password. This type of hacker attack aims at your contact forms and login credentials.
Thousands of bots check all possible password combinations to get into the system. It can be a time and resource consuming process and even create tension in your network. Fortunately, only a couple of lines of code usually control those bots, and a simple verification can protect you from most of them.
That’s why we’ve created Google Captcha (reCAPTCHA) plugin. It adds a layer of defense to protect your website from spammers and intruders. Our efficient but straightforward solution can block bots that are attempting to hack or break down your site. reCAPTCHA has initially been designed to be compatible with the highest number of popular plugins, and it’s time to extend this list with one more title.
We’re glad to announce that the new version of our plugin has brought the compatibility with Divi Builder, which is initially designed for creating responsive and dynamic web elements you may integrate into your WordPress website. In this article, let’s check out both plugins and find out how to use them simultaneously in your product.
Google Captcha (reCAPTCHA)
This plugin is a reliable protection measure against possible spam attacks. It’s easy to download, install and use. You can add reCAPTCHA to a decent number of possible forms. Add it to registration, login, comments, reset password forms; Testimonials; Contact Form or any custom form you may ever want to create. An ability to hide the reCAPTCHA verification for enlisted IP-addresses or specific user roles is also a great bonus.
All these features are free, but you can upgrade to the Pro version to extend its functionality even more. The Pro version adds compatibility to popular plugins such as Contact Form 7, Ninja Forms, Jetpack, Subscriber, Multilanguage, etc. The plugin is fully compatible with WooCommerce, bbPress, BuddyPress, wpForo Forum, and from now on, with Divi Builder.
The plugin is an excellent drag & drop builder. Use it to create any element you want – from a post or a form to an entire webpage. You won’t need any coding skills to create something unique – simple visual interface doesn’t contain any tough parts. All these will be handled by the plugin itself, so you can concentrate on creation and forget about tedious and time-consuming tasks.
Google Captcha (reCAPTCHA) + Divi Builder Integration
With the latest reCAPTCHA version, both plugins become fully compatible with each other. Like Contact Form 7 or Ninja Forms, you can now use Divi Builder for creating your fascinating forms and webpages to boost overall website’s popularity and conversions. But first, you need to integrate Divi and reCAPTCHA into your WordPress product. Let’s take a look at how to reach this in 5 simple steps:
1. First of all, install and configure both plugins. Check out this article to understand how to solve any possible issues you may encounter during this process.
2. Keep in mind that you’ll need to register the website with Google and get the API keys to start using reCAPTCHA on your website.
Make sure that the reCAPTCHA version on the plugin’s settings page matches the reCAPTCHA type of the API keys in the Google Admin console. Otherwise, the plugin won’t work.
3. Go to the settings page, navigate to the “reCAPTCHA version” section, and select the one for which you’ve obtained the keys earlier. In the “Authentication” section fill up “Site Key” and “Secret Key” fields with the data provided by Google. Save all the changes.
4. Check if everything runs perfectly. Click the “Test reCAPTCHA” button and pass the generated test verification. Complete the test to ensure that you have pasted the keys correctly.
5. On Google Captcha (reCAPTCHA) settings page, scroll down to find the “Divi Builder” section and mark the “Contact Form” and/or “Login Forms” checkbox(es). Save the changes.
