    We're running SF 4.1x with the Comments turned on for all news articles. We've gotten a leap in spam. Is there a CAPTCHA function that could be turned on? Or any insight to combating spam posts? Comments are going through approval process but this still means we have to delete the junk manually. Thank you, Lou

    Hello,

    There is a way to add CAPTCHA to Sitefinity. I have included a link to a blog post which explains how to add CAPTCHA.

    Please let us know if have anymore questions.

    Dear Grace
    Captchas schould make it as option to many widget in Sitefinity 5.2.
    Forms, Comments, Sign-ups and stuff. So you might consider this a feature request.

    You would not belive how many forums these day get SPAMed. Mostly on weekends ,-)
