A quick question about captcha
« on: 31.05.2018 09:51:33 »
I have version 3.2.29 and I am wondering when captcha will be available?  And what plugin will we need to install? We are getting a lot of downloads from bots that are way wigging out our numbers and taking up resources.  It is cumbersome having to monitor and block IPs.

Hi
Captcha protection for Downloads has been available for ages!! :) You might find the article below helpful as several users are unaware of the actual steps involved.http://www.jdownloads.net/documentations/item/using-captcha
But as you are many versions behind I would suggest you make an Akeeba backup and also setup a test site.  Then upgrade the test site first.  The reason is that we have had a few reports of database differences causing a glitch when updating from much older versions.
