How to activate reCaptcha ?

Hello,

I have just been informed that reCaptcha was included in phpBB. I did not know that but what I read seems to confirm it.

But I can't find what I'm supposed to do to activate it.



Thank you for your help.

Probably not what you asked, but reCaptcha is broken by spambots a few months ago. So it wouldn't make sense to use it. ;)

Use the Q&A CAPTCHA, all others have been compromised.

Thank you for this info, but I'm not looking for the Captcha that I should use. (I usually use a very simple home made 'anti-bot' field which seems to work on 'confidential' boards I use to have.)

But I'm the author of two phpBB styles and I want to correct what seems to be a CSS mistake regarding this captcha. But I should be able to display it first.

In ACP->spambot countermeasures->choose reCaptcha (it's greyed out) then configure
In order to use reCaptcha, you must create an account on http://www.google.com/recaptcha
