I have a client who wants to implement ReCAPTCHA on a form. The entire site is done in HTML, no PHP or any other programming language. I've looked at ReCAPTCHA and I don't see instructions for doing this in a strictly HTML environment. Does it have to be implemented in a PHP page? I'm sure I'll have more questions but I want to start here.
You can't implement reCAPTCHA in pure HTML. It requires scripting support both on the page that generates the form and the script that processes the form submission. It's almost certain that the server that hosts your website supports PHP, so you should be able to add this capability if you like. You should even be able to find ready-made scripts available to help you if you don't have experience with PHP. Good luck!
Thanks. I don't have PHP experience but I've seen some code examples I can use. I just have to convince the client that the page name of the form needs to change. I'm pretty sure her host supports PHP.
reCAPTCHA is a free CAPTCHA service that helps to digitize books, newspapers and old time radio shows. A CAPTCHA is a program that can tell whether its user is a human or a computer. You've probably seen them — colorful images with distorted text at the bottom of Web registration forms.
NO PHP is a Programming language while HTML is a Markup language. two cannot be replaced with each other. what you can do is to URL rewrite ur pages so that PHP can do the job while maintaining the links that contain .html extentions
What may be confusing for you and your client is that PHP scripts (software) output HTML to the user's browser. That is, to the user, a page generated by a PHP script is indistinguishable from a plain text HTML file.
