collective.pfg.norobots allows to add a collective.z3cform.norobots captcha field to PloneFormGen forms.

Project description


collective.pfg.norobots is a PloneFormGen field using collective.z3cform.norobots.

collective.z3cform.norobots provides a “human” captcha widget based on a list of question/answer(s).

This captcha can be used :

  • as a PloneFormGen field with collective.pfg.norobots

  • as a (Plone Discussions) captcha plugin

  • as a z3c form field

  • as a macro in a custom form


I have tested this release with :

  • Plone 5.0.5 & PloneFormGen 1.8.1 & collective.z3cform.norobots 1.4.4

  • Plone 4.3.10 & PloneFormGen 1.7.19 & collective.z3cform.norobots 1.4.4
