    Adding CAPTCHA box to my registration and contact forms in Website Builder

    Hi All,

    I used a CAPTCHA box in the previous version of Website Builder for all my forms (after receiving uncountable numbers of false registrations and offers of Nigerian gold or **bleep** enhancement). I cannot locate that feature in the current forms templates and it is not an option to be added (like address or phone number). 

    Does anyone know how to add this? Is it even possible? I don't see any question on this topic when I search forum.

    Do I need to stop using WSB and switch to something else? I use WP with a different hosting service for another website I manage. Easy to add a captcha "I am not a robot" box. 

     

    Thank you, in advance for any help you can offer!

    Hi @TestyWebmistres, thanks for posting.

    The current version of Website Builder does not support CAPTCHAs.

    You may be able to use a third party, HTML based form. The would require familiarity with working with custom HTML.

    OK - anybody able to share names of a third party that can offer a CAPTCHA or something similar for my web builder website on Go Daddy?

    Any update on when reCaptcha will be available for Latest Website Builder. I see it is in use to register for this community so cant be too difficult for the GoDaddy masterminds to implement

    I am looking for an answer to this same issue and noticed no one has responded or offered a solution since September.  Why would godaddy have this on their forum but not offer if for those of us who are building our websites?

    Here’s a quick update to let you know that Google Recaptcha protection is now automatically included in GoCentral contact forms. To get the update, simply re-publish your site.

     

    We opted to use "ReCaptcha invisible,” which means your site visitors won’t need to take any action to prove they’re humans — an algorithm does the work behind the scenes. You can read more about this technology here: https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/invisible.

     

    The only viewable difference on your website will be a small line of text below the “submit” button on your contact form. This text links to the Recaptcha TOS/Privacy pages.
