    Advanced Editor Tools (previously TinyMCE Advanced) introduces a “Classic Paragraph” block for the block editor (Gutenberg).
    If you are not quite ready to switch to the block editor, or have plugins that cannot be used there (yet), using the Classic Paragraph block is your best option. It lets you to continue to use the familiar TinyMCE editor for most tasks, and at the same time gives you full access to all blocks and new features in the block editor.

    Version 5.5 continues to improve and enhance the new features introduced in version 5.0 of the plugin. It includes an improved “Clear Formatting” button, several advanced settings for tables, and importing and exporting of the settings to a file.

    If you want to continue to use the previous (“classic”) editor in WordPress 5.0 and newer, this plugin has an option to replace the new editor with the previous one. If you prefer to have access to both editors side by side or to allow your users to switch editors, it would be better to install the Classic Editor plugin. Advanced Editor Tools is fully compatible with the classic editor plugin and similar plugins that restore use of the previous WordPress editor.

    As always this plugin will let you add, remove and arrange the buttons that are shown on the Visual Editor toolbar in the Classic Paragraph and Classic blocks in the block editor, and in the classic editor (when enabled by a plugin). There you can configure up to four rows of buttons including Font Sizes, Font Family, text and background colors, tables, etc.

    It includes 15 plugins for TinyMCE that are automatically enabled or disabled depending on the buttons you have chosen.
    In addition this plugin adds options for keeping the paragraph tags in text mode and importing the CSS classes from the theme’s editor-style.css.

    Some of the features added by this plugin

    • “Classic Paragraph” block that can be used instead of or together with the standard Paragraph block.
    • An option to set the Classic Paragraph or Classic block as the default block in the block editor.
    • Supports converting of most default blocks to classic paragraphs, and from classic paragraphs back to the default blocks.
    • Support for creating and editing tables in the Classic blocks and the classic editor.
    • More options when inserting lists in the Classic blocks and the classic editor.
    • Search and Replace in the Classic blocks and the classic editor.
    • Ability to set Font Family and Font Sizes in the Classic blocks and the classic editor.
    • And many others.

    Privacy

    Advanced Editor Tools does not collect or store any user related data. It does not set cookies, and it does not connect to any third-party websites. It only uses functionality that is available in WordPress, and in the TinyMCE editor.

    In that terms Advanced Editor Tools does not affect your website’s user privacy in any way.

    Limit the number of login attempts possible both through normal login as well as using auth cookies.

    By default WordPress allows unlimited login attempts either through the login page or by sending special cookies. This allows passwords (or hashes) to be brute-force cracked with relative ease.

    Limit Login Attempts blocks an Internet address from making further attempts after a specified limit on retries is reached, making a brute-force attack difficult or impossible.

    Features

    • Limit the number of retry attempts when logging in (for each IP). Fully customizable
    • Limit the number of attempts to log in using auth cookies in same way

    Classic Editor is an official plugin maintained by the WordPress team that restores the previous (“classic”) WordPress editor and the “Edit Post” screen. It makes it possible to use plugins that extend that screen, add old-style meta boxes, or otherwise depend on the previous editor.

    Classic Editor is an official WordPress plugin, and will be fully supported and maintained until at least 2022, or as long as is necessary.

    At a glance, this plugin adds the following:

    • Administrators can select the default editor for all users.
    • Administrators can allow users to change their default editor.
    • When allowed, the users can choose which editor to use for each post.
    • Each post opens in the last editor used regardless of who edited it last. This is important for maintaining a consistent experience when editing content.

    In addition, the Classic Editor plugin includes several filters that let other plugins control the settings, and the editor choice per post and per post type.

    By default, this plugin hides all functionality available in the new block editor (“Gutenberg”).

    Charts and Tracking Description >>

    This plugin generates static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog. After a html file is generated your webserver will serve that file instead of processing the comparatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts.

    The static html files will be served to the vast majority of your users:

    • Users who are not logged in.
    • Users who have not left a comment on your blog.
    • Or users who have not viewed a password protected post.

    99% of your visitors will be served static html files. One cached file can be served thousands of times. Other visitors will be served custom cached files tailored to their visit. If they are logged in, or have left comments those details will be displayed and cached for them.

    The plugin serves cached files in 3 ways (ranked by speed):

    1. Expert. The fastest method is by using Apache mod_rewrite (or whatever similar module your web server supports) to serve “supercached” static html files. This completely bypasses PHP and is extremely quick. If your server is hit by a deluge of traffic it is more likely to cope as the requests are “lighter”. This does require the Apache mod_rewrite module (which is probably installed if you have custom permalinks) and a modification of your .htaccess file which is risky and may take down your site if modified incorrectly.
    2. Simple. Supercached static files can be served by PHP and this is the recommended way of using the plugin. The plugin will serve a “supercached” file if it exists and it’s almost as fast as the mod_rewrite method. It’s easier to configure as the .htaccess file doesn’t need to be changed. You still need a custom permalink. You can keep portions of your page dynamic in this caching mode.
    3. WP-Cache caching. This is mainly used to cache pages for known users, URLs with parameters and feeds. Known users are logged in users, visitors who leave comments or those who should be shown custom per-user data. It’s the most flexible caching method and slightly slower. WP-Cache caching will also cache visits by unknown users if supercaching is disabled. You can have dynamic parts to your page in this mode too. This mode is always enabled but you can disable caching for known users, URLs with parameters, or feeds separately. Set the constant “DISABLE_SUPERCACHE” to 1 in your wp-config.php if you want to only use WP-Cache caching.

    If you’re not comfortable with editing PHP files then use simple mode. It’s easy to set up and very fast.

    Recommended Settings

    1. Simple caching.
    2. Compress pages.
    3. Don’t cache pages for known users.
    4. Cache rebuild.
    5. CDN support.
    6. Extra homepage checks.

    Garbage collection is the act of cleaning up cache files that are out of date and stale. There’s no correct value for the expiry time but a good starting point is 1800 seconds.

    Consider deleting the contents of the “Rejected User Agents” text box and allow search engines to cache files for you.

    Preload as many posts as you can and enable “Preload Mode”. Garbage collection of old cached files will be disabled. If you don’t care about sidebar widgets updating often set the preload interval to 2880 minutes (2 days) so all your posts aren’t recached very often. When the preload occurs the cache files for the post being refreshed is deleted and then regenerated. Afterwards a garbage collection of all old files is performed to clean out stale cache files.
    Even with preload mode enabled cached files will still be deleted when posts are modified or comments made.

    Development

    • Active development of this plugin is handled on GitHub.
    • Translation of the plugin into different languages is on the translation page.

    Documentation

    If you need more information than the following, you can have a look at the Developer documentation.

    Preloading

    You can generate cached files for the posts, categories and tags of your site by preloading. Preloading will visit each page of your site generating a cached page as it goes along, just like any other visitor to the site. Due to the sequential nature of this function, it can take some time to preload a complete site if there are many posts.
    To make preloading more effective it can be useful to disable garbage collection so that older cache files are not deleted. This is done by enabling “Preload Mode” in the settings. Be aware however, that pages will go out of date eventually but that updates by submitting comments or editing posts will clear portions of the cache.

    Garbage Collection

    Your cache directory fills up over time, which takes up space on your server. If space is limited or billed by capacity, or if you worry that the cached pages of your site will go stale then garbage collection has to be done. Garbage collection happens on a regular basis and deletes old files in the cache directory. On the advanced settings page you can specify:
    1. Cache timeout. How long cache files are considered fresh for. After this time they are stale and can be deleted.
    2. Scheduler. Setup how often garbage collection should be done.
    3. Notification emails. You can be informed on garbage collection job progress.
    There’s no right or wrong settings for garbage collection. It depends on your own site.
    If your site gets regular updates, or comments then set the timeout to 1800 seconds, and set the timer to 600 seconds.
    If your site is mostly static you can disable garbage collection by entering 0 as the timeout, or use a really large timeout value.

    The cache directory, usually wp-content/cache/ is only for temporary files. Do not ever put important files or symlinks to important files or directories in that directory. They will be deleted if the plugin has write access to them.

    CDN

    A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is usually a network of computers situated around the world that will serve the content of your website faster by using servers close to you. Static files like images, Javascript and CSS files can be served through these networks to speed up how fast your site loads. You can also create a “poor man’s CDN” by using a sub domain of your domain to serve static files too.

    OSSDL CDN off-linker has been integrated into WP Super Cache to provide basic CDN support. It works by rewriting the URLs of files (excluding .php files) in wp-content and wp-includes on your server so they point at a different hostname. Many CDNs support origin pull. This means the CDN will download the file automatically from your server when it’s first requested, and will continue to serve it for a configurable length of time before downloading it again from your server.

    Configure this on the “CDN” tab of the plugin settings page. This is an advanced technique and requires a basic understanding of how your webserver or CDNs work. Please be sure to clear the file cache after you configure the CDN.

    REST API

    There are now REST API endpoints for accessing the settings of this plugin. You’ll need to be authenticated as an admin user with permission to view the settings page to use it. This has not been documented yet but you can find all the code that deals with this in the “rest” directory.

    Custom Caching

    It is now possible to hook into the caching process using the add_cacheaction() function.

    Three hooks are available:

    1. ‘wp_cache_get_cookies_values’ – modify the key used by WP Cache.
    2. ‘add_cacheaction’ – runs in phase2. Allows a plugin to add WordPress hooks.
    3. ‘cache_admin_page’ – runs in the admin page. Use it to modify that page, perhaps by adding new configuration options.

    There is one regular WordPress filter too. Use the “do_createsupercache” filter
    to customize the checks made before caching. The filter accepts one parameter.
    The output of WP-Cache’s wp_cache_get_cookies_values() function.

    WP Super Cache has its own plugin system. This code is loaded when WP Super Cache loads and can be used to change how caching is done. This is before most of WordPress loads so some functionality will not be available. Plugins can be located anywhere that PHP can load them. Add your own plugin either:

    • by putting your plugin in the wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache-plugins directory, or
    • by calling wpsc_add_plugin( $name ) where $name is the full filename and path to the plugin. You only need to call that function once to add it. Use wpsc_delete_plugin( $name ) to remove it from the list of loaded plugins.

    The cookies WP Super Cache uses to identify “known users” can be modified now by adding the names of those cookies to a list in the plugin configuration. Use wpsc_add_cookie( $name ) to add a new cookie, and wpsc_delete_cookie( $name ) to remove it. The cookie names also modify the mod_rewrite rules used by the plugin but I recommend using Simple mode caching to avoid complications with updating the .htaccess file.
    The cookie name and value are used to differenciate users so you can have one cookie, but different values for each type of user on your site for example. They’ll be served different cache files.

    See plugins/searchengine.php as an example I use for my No Adverts for Friends plugin.

    Troubleshooting

    If things don’t work when you installed the plugin here are a few things to check:

    1. Is wp-content writable by the web server?
    2. Is there a wp-content/wp-cache-config.php ? If not, copy the file wp-super-cache/wp-cache-config-sample.php to wp-content/wp-cache-config.php and make sure WPCACHEHOME points at the right place.
    3. Is there a wp-content/advanced-cache.php ? If not, then you must copy wp-super-cache/advanced-cache.php into wp-content/. You must edit the file and change the path so it points at the wp-super-cache folder.
    4. If pages are not cached at all, remove wp-content/advanced-cache.php and recreate it, following the advice above.
    5. Make sure the following line is in wp-config.php and it is ABOVE the “require_once(ABSPATH.’wp-settings.php’);” line:

      define( 'WP_CACHE', true );
      
      
    6. Try the Settings->WP Super Cache page again and enable cache.
    7. Look in wp-content/cache/supercache/. Are there directories and files there?
    8. Anything in your php error_log?
    9. If your browser keeps asking you to save the file after the super cache is installed you must disable Super Cache compression. Go to the Settings->WP Super Cache page and disable it there.
    10. The plugin does not work very well when PHP’s safe mode is active. This must be disabled by your administrator.
    11. If pages are randomly super cached and sometimes not, your blog can probably be viewed with and without the “www” prefix on the URL. You should choose one way and install the Enforce www preference plugin if you are using an old WordPress install. The latest versions redirect themselves (you should always be running the latest version of WordPress anyway!)
    12. Private Server users at Dreamhost should edit wp-content/wp-cache-config.php and set the cache dir to “/tmp/” if they are getting errors about increasing CPU usage. See this discussion for more.
    13. File locking errors such as “failed to acquire key 0x152b: Permission denied in…” or “Page not cached by WP Super Cache. Could not get mutex lock.” are a sign that you may have to use file locking. Edit wp-content/wp-cache-config.php and uncomment “$use_flock = true” or set $sem_id to a different value. You can also disable file locking from the Admin screen as a last resort.
    14. Make sure cache/wp_cache_mutex.lock is writable by the web server if using coarse file locking.
    15. The cache folder cannot be put on an NFS or Samba or NAS share. It has to be on a local disk. File locking and deleting expired files will not work properly unless the cache folder is on the local machine.
    16. Garbage collection of old cache files won’t work if WordPress can’t find wp-cron.php. If your hostname resolves to 127.0.0.1 it could be preventing the garbage collection from working. Check your access_logs for wp-cron.php entries. Do they return a 404 (file not found) or 200 code? If it’s 404 or you don’t see wp-cron.php anywhere WordPress may be looking for that script in the wrong place. You should speak to your server administator to correct this or edit /etc/hosts on Unix servers and remove the following line. Your hostname must resolve to the external IP address other servers on the network/Internet use. See http://yoast.com/wp-cron-issues/ for more. A line like “127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain” is ok.

      127.0.0.1 example.com
      
      
    17. If old pages are being served to your visitors via the supercache, you may be missing Apache modules (or their equivalents if you don’t use Apache). 3 modules are required: mod_mime, mod_headers and mod_expires. The last two are especially important for making sure browsers load new versions of existing pages on your site.
    18. The error message, “WP Super Cache is installed but broken. The path to wp-cache-phase1.php in wp-content/advanced-cache.php must be fixed!” appears at the end of every page. Open the file wp-content/advanced-cache.php in your favourite editor. Is the path to wp-cache-phase1.php correct? This file will normally be in wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/. If it is not correct the caching engine will not load.
    19. Caching doesn’t work. The timestamp on my blog keeps changing when I reload. Check that the path in your .htaccess rules matches where the supercache directory is. You may have to hardcode it. Try disabling supercache mode.
    20. If supercache cache files are generated but not served, check the permissions on all your wp-content/cache/supercache folders (and each of wp-content cache and supercache folders) and wp-content/cache/.htaccess. If your PHP runs as a different user to Apache and permissions are strict Apache may not be able to read the PHP generated cache files. To fix you must add the following line to your wp-config.php (Add it above the WP_CACHE define.) Then clear your cache.

      umask( 0022 );
      
      
    21. If you see garbage in your browser after enabling compression in the plugin, compression may already be enabled in your web server. In Apache you must disable mod_deflate, or in PHP zlib compression may be enabled. You can disable that in three ways. If you have root access, edit your php.ini and find the zlib.output_compression setting and make sure it’s “Off” or add this line to your .htaccess:

      php_flag zlib.output_compression off
      
      

      If that doesn’t work, add this line to your wp-config.php:

      ini_set('zlib.output_compression', 0);
      
      
    22. The “white screen of death” or a blank page when you visit your site is almost always caused by a PHP error but it may also be caused by APC. Disable that PHP extension if you have trouble and replace with eAccelerator or Xcache.
    23. After uninstalling, your permalinks may break if you remove the WordPress mod_rewrite rules too. Regenerate those rules by visiting the Settings->Permalink page and saving that form again.
    24. If your blog refuses to load make sure your wp-config.php is correct. Are you missing an opening or closing PHP tag?
    25. Your front page is ok but posts and pages give a 404? Go to Settings->permalinks and click “Save” once you’ve selected a custom permalink structure. You may need to manually update your .htaccess file.
    26. If certain characters do not appear correctly on your website your server may not be configured correctly. You need to tell visitors what character set is used. Go to Settings->Reading and copy the ‘Encoding for pages and feeds’ value. Edit the .htaccess file with all your Supercache and WordPress rewrite rules and add this at the top, replacing CHARSET with the copied value. (for example, ‘UTF-8’)

      AddDefaultCharset CHARSET
      
      
    27. Use Cron View to help diagnose garbage collection and preload problems. Use the plugin to make sure jobs are scheduled and for what time. Look for the wp_cache_gc and wp_cache_full_preload_hook jobs.
    28. The error message, “WP Super Cache is installed but broken. The constant WPCACHEHOME must be set in the file wp-config.php and point at the WP Super Cache plugin directory.” appears at the end of every page. You can delete wp-content/advanced-cache.php and reload the plugin settings page or edit wp-config.php and look for WPCACHEHOME and make sure it points at the wp-super-cache folder. This will normally be wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/ but you’ll likely need the full path to that file (so it’s easier to let the settings page fix it). If it is not correct the caching engine will not load.
    29. If your server is running into trouble because of the number of semaphores used by the plugin it’s because your users are using file locking which is not recommended (but is needed by a small number of users). You can globally disable file locking by defining the constant WPSC_DISABLE_LOCKING, or defining the constant WPSC_REMOVE_SEMAPHORE so that sem_remove() is called after every page is cached but that seems to cause problems for other processes requesting the same semaphore. Best to disable it.
    30. Set the variable $htaccess_path in wp-config.php or wp-cache-config.php to the path of your global .htaccess if the plugin is looking for that file in the wrong directory. This might happen if you have WordPress installed in an unusual way.

    With MonsterInsights Ads tracking addon, publishers can easily track the performance of their Google AdSense Ads inside their Google Analytics dashboard.

    Regenerate Thumbnails allows you to regenerate all thumbnail sizes for one or more images that have been uploaded to your Media Library.

    This is useful for situations such as:

    • A new thumbnail size has been added and you want past uploads to have a thumbnail in that size.
    • You’ve changed the dimensions of an existing thumbnail size, for example via Settings → Media.
    • You’ve switched to a new WordPress theme that uses featured images of a different size.

    It also offers the ability to delete old, unused thumbnails in order to free up server space.

    In Memory of Alex Mills

    In February 2019 Alex Mills, the author of this plugin, passed away. He leaves behind a number of plugins which will be maintained by Automattic and members of the WordPress community. If this plugin is useful to you please consider donating to the Oregon Health and Science University. You can find more information here.

    Alternatives

    WP-CLI

    If you have command line access to your server, I highly recommend using WP-CLI instead of this plugin as it’s faster (no HTTP requests overhead) and can be run inside of a screen for those with many thumbnails. For details, see the documentation of its media regenerate command.

    Jetpack’s Photon Module

    Jetpack is a plugin by Automattic, makers of WordPress.com. It gives your self-hosted WordPress site some of the functionality that is available to WordPress.com-hosted sites.

    The Photon module makes the images on your site be served from WordPress.com’s global content delivery network (CDN) which should speed up the loading of images. Importantly though it can create thumbnails on the fly which means you’ll never need to use this plugin.

    I personally use Photon on my own website.

    Disclaimer: I work for Automattic but I would recommend Photon even if I didn’t.

    UpdraftPlus simplifies backups and restoration. It is the world’s highest ranking and most popular scheduled backup plugin, with over three million currently-active installs. Backup your files and database backups into the cloud and restore with a single click!

    Backup into the cloud directly to Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon S3 (or compatible), UpdraftVault, Rackspace Cloud, FTP, DreamObjects, Openstack Swift, and email. The paid version also backs up to Microsoft OneDrive, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Storage, Backblaze B2, SFTP, SCP, and WebDAV.

    Don’t risk your backups on anything less

    Your WordPress backups are worth the entire investment you’ve made in your website. The day may come when you get hacked, when something goes wrong with an update, your server crashes or your hosting company goes bust – without good backups, you lose everything. Would you entrust all your hard work to a backup plugin with only a few thousand downloads, mixed reviews or no professional support?

    Believe us: writing a reliable backup plugin that works consistently across the huge range of WordPress deployments is hard.

    UpdraftPlus works. We’ll keep your backups safe.

    Why you should backup your website.

    WordPress like any CMS can be vulnerable to things such as server crashes, hacking, security flaws, bad plugin or theme updates and insecure web hosts. If anything happened to your website, it would cost you dearly in time, money and reputation.

    Whilst other security measures are essential, backups are the ultimate insurance: they mean that, if the worst were to happen, your website (plus all related files and databases) stay safe, and can be restored in no time.

    You could always create your own manual backups- but using backup plugin is infinitely quicker, simpler and safer. Life’s busy enough! With UpdraftPlus, you can simply “set and forget”, scheduling in automatic backups to save you time, work and hassle.

    How UpdraftPlus compares with other backup plugins:

    UpdraftPlus is the most highly-rated and popular plugin out there – and for good reason. Not only is it comprehensive in terms of its features, but it’s also easy and intuitive to use. And because it has such a vast user base, it’s tried and tested in a whole range of different situations and scenarios.

    Unlike many other plugins, UpdraftPlus:

    • Reliable: Runs on capacity from a leading cloud computing provider.
    • Secure: One VPS (Virtual Private Server) per clone, shared with nobody.

    Are you multi-lingual? Can you translate?

    Are you able to translate UpdraftPlus into another language? Are you ready to help speakers of your language? UpdraftPlus Backup/Restore itself is ready and waiting – the only work needed is the translating. The translation process is easy, and web-based – go here for instructions: https://updraftplus.com/translate/. (Or if you’re an expert WordPress translator already, then just pick out the .pot file from the wp-content/plugins/updraftplus/languages/ directory – if you scan for translatable strings manually, then you need to get these functions: _x(), __(), _e(), _ex(), log_e()).

    Page Builder works with standard WordPress widgets, so you’ll always find the widget you need. We’ve created the SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle to give you all the most common widgets, and with a world of plugins out there, you’ll always find the widget you need.

    It Works With Your Theme

    Page Builder gives you complete freedom to choose any WordPress theme you like. It’s not a commitment to a single theme or theme developer. The advantage is that you’re free to change themes as often as you like. Your content will always come along with you.

    We’ve also made some fantastic free themes that work well with Page Builder.

    No Coding Required

    Page Builder’s simple drag and drop interface means you’ll never need to write a single line of code. Page Builder generates all the highly efficient code for you.

You can choose the exact number of columns for each row and the precise weight of each column – down to the decimal point. This flexibility is all possible using our convenient row builder. And, if you’re not sure what you like, the Row Builder will guide you towards beautifully proportioned content using advanced ratios.

    Live Editing

    Page Builder supports live editing. This tool lets you see your content and edit widgets in real-time. It’s the fastest way to adjust your content quickly and easily.

    History Browser

    This tool lets you roll forward and back through your changes. It gives you the freedom to experiment with different layouts and content without the fear of breaking your content.

    Row and Widget Styles

    Row and widget styles give you all the control you need to make your content uniquely your own. Change attributes like paddings, background colors, and column spacing. You can also enter custom CSS and CSS classes if you need even finer-grained control.

    It’s Free, and Always Will Be

    Page Builder is our commitment to the democratization of content creation. Like WordPress, Page Builder is, and always will be free. We’ll continue supporting and developing it for many years to come. It’ll only get better from here.

    We offer free support on the SiteOrigin support forums.

    Actively Developed

    With over 20 million downloads Duplicator successfully gives WordPress users the ability to migrate, copy, move or clone a site from one location to another and also serves as a simple backup utility. Duplicator handles serialized and base64 serialized replacements. Standard WordPress migration and WordPress backups are easily handled by this plugin as are zero downtime migrations.

    For complete details visit snapcreek.com.

    Quick Video Demo

    Overview

    Duplicator is the most powerful migrator available. It enables you to:

    • Move, migrate or clone a WordPress site between domains or hosts with zero downtime
    • Pull down a live site to localhost for development
    • Transfer a WordPress site from one host to another
    • Manually backup a WordPress site or parts of a site
    • Duplicate a live site to a staging area or vice versa
    • Bundle up an entire WordPress site for easy reuse or distribution
    • Perform a full WordPress migration without struggling with messy import/export sql scripts

    Migrate WordPress and Run WordPress Backups

    Duplicator creates a package that bundles all the site’s plugins, themes, content, database and WordPress files into a simple zip file called a package. This package can then be used to easily migrate a WordPress site to any location you wish. Move on the same server, across servers and pretty much any location a WordPress site can be hosted. WordPress is not required for installation since the package contains all site files.

    Improve Your Workflow with Pre-Bundled Sites

    Duplicator lets you make your own preconfigured sites to eliminate rework. Instead of manually configuring your favorite theme, set of plugins or content over and over, now just configure a single site and bundle it up into a Duplicator package. Once you have the bundled site, you can migrate the WordPress site over and over to different locations to instantly create many preconfigured sites!

    Really Simple CAPTCHA does not work alone and is intended to work with other plugins. It is originally created for Contact Form 7, however, you can use it with your own plugin.

    Note: This product is “really simple” as its name suggests, i.e., it is not strongly secure. If you need perfect security, you should try other solutions.

    How does it work?

    Really Simple CAPTCHA does not use PHP “Sessions” for storing states, unlike many other PHP CAPTCHA solutions, but stores them as temporary files. This allows you to embed it into WordPress without worrying about conflicts.

    When you generate a CAPTCHA, Really Simple CAPTCHA creates two files for it; one is an image file of CAPTCHA, and the other is a text file which stores the correct answer to the CAPTCHA.

    The two files have the same (random) prefix in their file names, for example, “a7hk3ux8p.png” and “a7hk3ux8p.txt.” In this case, for example, when the respondent answers “K5GF” as an answer to the “a7hk3ux8p.png” image, then Really Simple CAPTCHA calculates hash of “K5GF” and tests it against the hash stored in the “a7hk3ux8p.txt” file. If the two match, the answer is confirmed as correct.

    How to use with your plugin

    Note: Below are instructions for plugin developers.

    First, create an instance of ReallySimpleCaptcha class:

    $captcha_instance = new ReallySimpleCaptcha();
    
    

    You can change the instance variables as you wish.

    // Change the background color of CAPTCHA image to black
    $captcha_instance->bg = array( 0, 0, 0 );
    
    

    See really-simple-captcha.php if you are interested in other variables.

    Generate a random word for CAPTCHA.

    $word = $captcha_instance->generate_random_word();
    
    

    Generate an image file and a corresponding text file in the temporary directory.

    $prefix = mt_rand();
    $captcha_instance->generate_image( $prefix, $word );
    
    

    Then, show the image and get an answer from respondent.

    Check the correctness of the answer.

    $correct = $captcha_instance->check( $prefix, $the_answer_from_respondent );
    
    

    If the $correct is true, go ahead. Otherwise, block the respondent — as it would appear not to be human.

    And last, remove the temporary image and text files, as they are no longer in use.

    $captcha_instance->remove( $prefix );
    
    

    That’s all.

    If you wish to see a live sample of this, you can try Contact Form 7.
