A replacement for captcha?

I have a request for a captcha like function in my COT app. Given captcha is not natively supported by the COT framework what would be another option.

It is a public data site and we are simply trying to keep a 'bot' from pushing false activity.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

  • Sadly I have not gotten back to this. I have been challenged by network issues. I had to deal with apps on a hosting service that was hit by a ransomware attack. That came back up in pieces Monday and Tuesday. I have another on a government system that their server will not hold a connection one way but does another. At least as of yesterday it was not the app but their servers causing the problem.

    The ransomware attack got my attention. I need to find a better process to recover from these events.

    However, this remains on my list of things to do if I can.

  • I have a simple numeric captcha working in COT. Well kind of... I am not good with javascript so it needs more refinement. I added a page to a new COT app for testing and gave it a name. Then I worked with some code I found on the internet. At this point I was curious to see if I could get it to work. It does kind of, but not yet doing what I want. But its a start.

    Here is the link to where I found the code. http://allwebco-templates.com/support...

    I just wanted to post this here so someone might improve the code.

    Here are my two screen shots

  • I use to purchase website templates off Allwebco a few years ago and remember their captcha code. Didn’t think of trying it, what part haven’t you been able to get to work

  • I would like to get it properly positioned on a page like a home page with some introductory text. More importantly I need to get it to take them to a particular page in the site. I may be able to do it myself with some trial and error I will just have to see.

    Then from there I am hoping to modify it to look nicer etc. I am thinking someone more familiar with javascript might really improve it.

  • It would be nice John if you could just add a tag to any of your create pages ... captcha-type1-enable or captcha-type2-enable and it added in the captcha you needed (text or pictures) depending on the tag type. I am thinking of doing a one page app with single user details and getting my prospective clients to sign in with generic credentials so they can then access my registration page but not sure if I it’s the correct path to take
