A simple recaptcha example

<?php

/**
 * Include the Services_ReCaptcha class
 */
require_once 'Services/ReCaptcha.php';

// you must get your API keys here:
// http://recaptcha.net/api/getkey
$publicKey  'your_public_key';
$privateKey 'your_private_key';

// we instanciate our Services_ReCaptcha instance with the public key and the 
// private key
$recaptcha = new Services_ReCaptcha($publicKey$privateKey);

// if the form was submitted and the catpcha challenge response is ok, we 
// display a message and exit
if (isset($_POST['submit']) && $recaptcha->validate()) {
    echo 
"Challenge response ok !";
    exit(
0);
}

// we display the html form
?>
<html>
<head>
    <title>recaptcha test</title>
</head>
<body>
    <form method="post" action="">
<?php echo $recaptcha?>
        <hr/>
        <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Ok"/>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

A more advanced recaptcha example

<?php

/**
 * Include the Services_ReCaptcha class
 */
require_once 'Services/ReCaptcha.php';

// you must get your API keys here:
// http://recaptcha.net/api/getkey
$publicKey  'your_public_key';
$privateKey 'your_private_key';

// we instanciate our Services_ReCaptcha instance with the public key and the 
// private key
$recaptcha = new Services_ReCaptcha($publicKey$privateKey);

// we are going to customize our Services_ReCaptcha instance
$recaptcha->setOption('secure'true);   // we force the secure url
$recaptcha->setOption('theme''white'); // use the white theme
$recaptcha->setOption('lang''fr');     // set language to french

// alternatively we could have done:
// $recaptcha = new Services_ReCaptcha($publicKey, $privateKey, array(
//     'secure' => true,
//     'theme'  => 'white',
//     'lang'   => 'fr'
// ));
// or:
// $recaptcha->setOptions(array('theme' => 'white', 'lang' => 'fr'));

// we use a proxy, so we need to configure it
$recaptcha->getRequest()->setConfig(
    array(
'proxy_host' => 'localhost''proxy_port' => 8118)
);

// if the form was submitted
if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {
    if (
$recaptcha->validate()) {
        
// the catpcha challenge response is ok, we display a message and exit
        
echo "Challenge response ok !";
        exit(
0);
    } else {
        
// if the captcha validation failed, instead of letting the captcha 
        // display the error, we want to echo the error and exit
        
echo $recaptcha->getError();
        exit(
1);
    }
}

// we display the html form
?>
<html>
<head>
    <title>recaptcha test</title>
</head>
<body>
    <form method="post" action="">
<?php echo $recaptcha?>
        <hr/>
        <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Ok"/>
    </form>
</body>
</html>
