I would like to implement reCAPTCHA either to a link or a page designated specifically for the tool. Instead of having CAPTCHA in a form widget, I want it to appear when a user clicks a link. This is similar to password protection for a page, but I don't want a designated password. I just want a user to be prompted to solve the CAPTCHA challenge before being redirected to a link's destination. For example: A user wants to see a page that contains protected content, they click the link to that page and are prompted with CAPTCHA and must solve this before the page loads. Is this possible to do without a form widget?

Hello Paul

This will most probably not be possible to do with Yola. The validation of the ReCaptcha feature requires a server-side script which cannot be added manually to links or pages. It's currently only available for the Yola Form Widget. I'm sorry that I don't have better news for you at this time.

Hi Paul,
I’d like to tell you about a new CAPTCHA alternative to check out. We all know we need CAPTCHAs to stop spammers from abusing our sites. We also know that users hate typing out twisty letters or ad phrases. Automated spam filters make mistakes and require constant checking. FunCaptcha presents a mini-game that blocks the bots while giving your users a few moments of fun. It’s a real security solution hardened by experts and automatically updated to provide the best protection. Try a demo on our site!

Users complete our FunCaptcha faster than other CAPTCHAs, with fewer frustrating failures and no typing. They work on all browsers and mobile devices, using HTML5 with a fallback to Flash. Visually impaired users can complete an audio challenge. We have several ways to deploy (, including PHP and a WordPress plugin (

If you get in on the ground floor now, you can be first in line to start earning money with upcoming FunCaptchas that integrate advertising. They will require no typing or extra time, and remain as secure as ever.

Learn more, give feedback, and ask questions at our website. Our epic battle against bots doesn’t have to be a headache. Let’s fight while having some fun!

We agree this is a fun service but it is not compatible with Yola websites.
