How it works

Under the hood this extension makes use of the fantastic laminas/laminas-captcha library. This extension is using a separated session container to make things easier. A separate session cookie named captcha is set and only valid for the current browser session. Keep this in mind for your cookie consent or privacy settings! Generated captcha images are automatically gargabe collected from time to time, so no worries.

Usage

After you've installed the extension, you will see a new field called "Easy captcha" in your TYPO3 forms editor. Simply add the field and you are good to go. Don't forget to add the static typoscript file in your template!

Customization

The following options are available in the TYPO3 form editor:

Styling

The captcha field can be styled with the following CSS classes:

  • easycaptcha (Container for the image)
  • captcha-actions (Container for the action buttons e.g. reload or play)

By default, bootstrap classes are also added for the form field. If you don't use bootstrap, simply ignore them.

Demo

We're using the captcha on our corporate website for the contact form.
