Hiddy wordpress plugin (captcha like)

Hiddy Wordpress plugin is a captcha like system to prevent from spam comment.

Based on Merlinox’s idea: hidden captcha

See Installation detail

This plugin will add a simple input text in the comments form, this text will be hidden with a stylesheet and the when a user post a comment it will check for the input and check if it is empty.

So simple, so efficent.

To download the lates version go to the Hiddy download section

    with an important bugfix

  9. Hai visto che c’è pure la versione tedesca di hiddy? Deutsch Hiddy

  10. Does it work on WP 2.2.3?

  11. i don’t know, i tried this in wp 2.2, 2.3 and 2.3.1
    if you try,pls refer to us

  12. Well, I understand what you wrote and I understand what Hiddy does. But how does that prevent spam? You mean spambots will try to fill the hidden field and in case they do, it’s spam?

    Please let me know.


  13. yes this is the idea, and this works
    we have some blog that was receiving something like 70 spam comment/day even with normal captcha… in that case it was reCaptcha.
    With hiddy we have something like 10 spam comment a day without Akismet, and 1 or 2 with akismet.

    We are developing something more than a simple input text, more news in the newer version.

    Keep in touch

  14. @k76: Yes it works absolutely perfect. Just wanted to know why. :-)

  15. Its a good plugin but i wonder ywhy you have not installed it at your blog?

    Don’t you get spam ??

  16. ehm…. the plugin is up and working in all my blog….
    and i don’t really get spam

  17. You claim above that the plug in is installed on your blog. I don’t see it. Maybe that’s the idea. So I am testing by posting. Cheers!
