Add CAPTCHA to your Solodev Forms with One Word

With millions of “robots” crawling the web it's important you create an extra layer of security in your forms to prevent SQL injection and other forms of hacking. Smart companies battle these malicious robots by implementing CAPTCHA on their forms. At Solodev, we created a shortcode to enable you to easily add this extra layer of security to the forms on your Solodev website with one word and no need for custom development. Below is the shortcode and CSS to add CAPTCHA to your website. Enjoy.


Step 1

When using Solodev CMS, add CAPTCHA validation to your forms by placing the [CAPTCHA] shortcode directly above the “Submit” button of your form as shown below. 

Be careful in choosing where to add Captcha as using it too much can create a bad user experience. Only use it when absolutely necessary such as user registrations, e-commerce purchases, or signups. 

Step 2

Use the following CSS to add style to the submit button of your form.
