    i know alot of guys here are not big fans about captchas but still a captcha solution for signup form is a something needed to be available
    i got a message from wp-recaptcha plugin developer,
    Jorge Peña , - a single user wp plugin - and he is planning to make a version of his plugin to work with mu version of wordpress
    the message:


    Does MU use actions and filters? The main filters I use are:

    wp_head - CSS for the reCAPTCHA related things on the blog such as hidden
    emails (filter)
    admin_head - CSS for the admin settings (filter)
    login_head - CSS for the reCAPTCHA on the registration page (filter)
    register_form - To display the reCAPTCHA on the registration page (action)
    registration_errors - In case the user typed in the wrong CAPTCHA or failed
    the test, display the errors (filter)
    the_content - Email hiding using MailHide (filter)
    get_comment_text - Email hiding for comments (filter)
    the_content_rss - Email hiding for the content in RSS (filter)
    comment_text_rss - Email hiding for comments in RSS (filter)
    comment_form - To display the reCAPTCHA form (action)
    pre_comment_approved - To mark comments as spam (action)
    preprocess_comment - To check the comment before we post it (filter)
    comment_post_redirect - To redirect if the user failed the CAPTCHA (filter)
    admin_menu - For the plugin options (action)
    admin_footer - For plugin warnings (action)

    Or is it even a matter of what hooks aren't available but something else?
    I'll gladly figure this out myself I just don't know where to start, thanks
    I would appreciate any help.


    i wish some of you guys can help

    There are already plugins available that will add captcha to signup.

    would it be a problem if we get another plugin depending on recaptcha api ?

    that's why i posted this post , once we got the answers we will start developing and testing it then provide the community with the plugin as everyone here did to us.

    I guess what MrBrian wanted to point out, was that you can look at the other captcha plugins to see how they did it ;-)

    yes, jorge is trying to use it as a guide developing his wp-recaptcha
    just the question he asked and i posted here for the current time
    thanks ovidiu
    and i know MrBrain is trying to help as everyone here , i think i do the same in some how ,
    the problem with the current captchas available for wpmu is they are depending on the data manually entered in the code from my side , the captcha signup i used from wpmudev didn't help at all , and doesn't include refresh or the ability to be heard for visually impaired users
    so we are hoping reCAPTCHA can help , we will try and see what's goin on
    as defensio said they are trying to support the wpmu install then it will be a value add to get all third parties spam protection working together ,

    register_form & registration_errors

    These would be diferent in WPMU. Look at wpmu-signup.php for any special hooks.
