This plugin provides an elegant and simple solution for anyone who hates captcha images to combat spam... or, like me, has clients who do!
I had a couple of issues integrating it into another component (Fox Contact) but Viktor fixed it. Now it works across my site clean and simple.
Use it - and donate!!

Finally an easy to install, konfigurieredes anti-spam plugin. No not recognizable images but simply a math problem and done. So be it.

Through the integration of 3rd party components, it will be even better and more universal.

If you want a simple way of protecting your site against spam then this is it - and you don't need nasty reCaptcha!
I had a few teething problems - caused by my template and a complex configuration - but the developer sorted them out immediately.

Looking for spam protection and found this on Jed. This is a great extension. Simple installation and configuration and to the point. I use it whit recaptcha and works fine now. I have made a mistake to set the friendly url to enable in Joomla. I did need support for this and found it on Viktors website. I hope there wil be a version for Joomla 3 in the future .Thank you Viktor for your hard work and excellent product. I have made the developer a donation. Kind regards Geert

I had spam back in the past when I first starting using Joomla! when I was a novice.

About a year ago I enabled the built in Joomla! captcha which worked fine but eventually I started getting forum spam relentlessly.

I installed this plugin left the defaults put in my captcha keys and BAM! no more spam on my site or forum, simple and easy to use definitely recommended!

This was a great little extension. very easy to use for users that have difficulty with typical captcha.

The only cons i see are that it doesn't integrate a a joomla default captcha selection in the standard captcha system and there is no 3.x version yet. Having it integrate in the default captcha system would instantly extend the number of extensions that could use it.

Overall though you cant ask for anything simpler on what it does support.

ECC+ is not a captcha plugin but a system plugin.

for the Captcha plugin, in fact,i do not like to display an image,this plugin bring a best option,can display for example: 3+7=10,this is what we want,very simple and nice looking !

i were met a problem when install this plugin to my new site,the problem because it's not compatible with my new template,i have join a support
plan,the owner give me a great support,and solution my problem quickly,i'm so happy to work with him,Vitja,you are my hero !

Although this plugin is free to use,but if you also meet some problem,i suggest you do not hesitate to pay some money to the owner, this is my experience,i'm sure,you will stay in happy too :)

IMO, this is a must have extension. It's about as simple as it gets for end-users. 1> It's dead-set simple and intuitive. %99.999999 of the time, even with the FLASHY distracting, puzzle/drag&drop alternatives, most people still find themselves, at least once... asking... "I'm I doing this right?". ECC Plus totally removes that uncertainty from the end users experience even if they've never been exposed to a Captcha challenge/response form. I live in a retirement community and get great feedback from the non-internet savvy crowd base. 2> Very powerful and clever backend Admin options. We thank you very much sir.
It's very unfortunate that we will have to find an alternative for a handful of our Joomla 3.x sites. Been waiting since Dec of last year. We hope a 3.x version is around the horizon. Thanks Viktor Vogel, very much appreciated.
