  • CAPTCHA generator... a preference?

    Yep, I'm back to pleading with the web gurus on here for advice. (can you tell I'm a printer designer stuck with a small portion of her job as a web designer. )

    I need to generate some spam bot controls on a website that uses a basic mail form. I have been told that a CAPTCHA generator is what I need. Anyone have a recommendation on the best, easiest and it has to be free. (cause the boss believes that while print is expensive, the web is free *sigh*)
    I have looked and found that maybe this one is the best:
    http://recaptcha.net/

    but before I spent forever making it work (or at least that is how it will feel to me as I try to code it in). I wanted to make sure that people think it's good.

    Thanks!

    Yeah I would've recommended re-captcha as well, it's a pretty ingenious system. And you'd be helping digitize books!

      craigslist uses recaptcha for submissions, and their traffic hasn't dropped off dramatically, so I think you're fine

          recaptcha is good. but if it is attached to any type of mail form, make sure you have other spam preventive measures, like removing code from fields, limiting characters in the to/from area, preventing variable injection into the form itself.

          Most default forms that just assign the variables to the subject, sender, message and send via a server side mailer will be injected - guaranteed.

          Upon submit you should have some sort of spam/injection check script to make your form safe. If you don't then I suggest using dd-formmailer. So far it is the best mailing script out there. It does take a little bit of reading to get a hang of how they want you to put in the form in their code, but the checks make it well worth the time. And they are already set up to use recaptcha, all you need is your recaptcha key.

            Thanks Jade.

            Well... I got the recaptcha to show up on my site no problem... but now it is not sending out any emails... and it doesn't seem to want to allow it to error either.
            Trying to work it out.
            Gotta say I really am not a fan of this whole php thing... html is so much easier! lol.

                Changing the color mode using File >Document color mode is what I was talking about
                It does mess with color values and certainly messes with Black. If you go from an RGB file with the Black swatch...

                I think what's off balance with the Royal Bank logo is the kerning. It's all over the place, especially between the 'Y' and the 'A'.

                To the OP: Looking closer at your other logos, kerning...

                PD, thanks for the link. Will read up on SM vs TM.

                Regarding the logos -- no, I'm not opposed to the first, offsetting the "P." Curiously, I don't think it's so bad when I mock...

                Here's the thing with some clients. They find fonts. Sometimes in weird and sometimes not so savory places.

                The only reference I can find of an LT 65 medium bold is on a free font download...

                There are literally hundreds of high quality stock photo sites out there.
                As well as font sites.
                There are also lots of sites related to car wrap art that have ''cool stuff.''
