One word: GREAT!
I was unable to get it working at first as the template was created with Artisteer...
Make sure you add a line of code in the template you are working with...
in file /templates/templatename/html/com_content/article/default.php
The captcha images with the letters are to difficult to read and I have not found any tutorial how to for example force it to have only number or capital letters. Maybe someone knows where to find this.
You can change the character set used in the CAPTCHA in the configuration file (/components/com_jcomments/libraries/kcaptcha/kcaptcha_config.php). But it will reduce the resistance of CAPTCHA image to OCR.
My evaluation is this is a really NICE extension.
I have a template that is white on back with some colored highlights for some tags. I had to go and manually modify the components default css the "kapatcha" config.php and use my image editor to create some new corner images. Some users might find this a bit harder to do then others.
I wouldn't want to see development take away from the beautiful simplicity of this extension, so maybe some other layouts besides the default would be helpful?
Thanks for the really well written extension!
