we started to use silverstripe for simple sites and are very satisfied with it's intuitive user interface.
now we tried to integrate recaptcha into our contact forms. we found the module and its documentation ([url]http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=modules:recaptcha[/url]) but we didn't succeed in using it.
we read discussions at the dev-forums ([url]http://tinyurl.com/6l7v4b[/url]) and are a little confused about how to use the module. isn't it ment to install the module and to have a new field in the form-tab?
we appreciate any hint on using this module. thank you very much!
No , at this moment it cannot be used on user generated forms. We played around with it , trying to get it to work on them, but ended up manually creating the forms through a class , the recaptcha works perfectly then.

nice work! one tiny note: we favour the usage of FormField::createTag() in FormField->Field() because its easier to read and modify.
do you want me to set up your module as a component on open.silverstripe.com and add it to translate.silverstripe.com? as always, we're offering to host your module on our subversion-repo as well if you're keen :)

I based myself on the recaptchamodule, don't remember seeing createTag there, but I can change it in a next version some day.
The guys from mollom asked me to set up a little site for it http://mollom.silverstripe.be/ where I maintain the versions, but feel free to add it to translate and open. (although it might need some extra vars added to translate).
The module is also featured on http://mollom.com/download.
I'm also looking into adding Mollom as a whole (as a Validator extension) - which checks the content first and only adds a Captcha on 'unsure', but I'm running into some difficulties with Validator and Form - might open a topic for it later that describes my problem in detail.
