#show_simple_captcha(options = {}) ⇒ Object

Simple Captcha is a very simplified captcha.

It can be used as a Model or a Controller based Captcha depending on what options we are passing to the method show_simple_captcha.

show_simple_captcha method will return the image, the label and the text box. This method should be called from the view within your form as…

<%= show_simple_captcha %>

The available options to pass to this method are

  • label

  • object

Label:

default label is “type the text from the image”, it can be modified by passing :label as

<%= show_simple_captcha(:label => “new captcha label”) %>.

Object

This option is needed to create a model based captcha. If this option is not provided, the captcha will be controller based and should be checked in controller's action just by calling the method simple_captcha_valid?

To make a model based captcha give this option as…

<%= show_simple_captcha(:object => “user”) %> and also call the method apply_simple_captcha in the model this will consider “user” as the object of the model class.

Examples

  • controller based

<%= show_simple_captcha(:label => “Human Authentication: type the text from image above”) %>

  • model based

<%= show_simple_captcha(:object => “person”, :label => “Human Authentication: type the text from image above”) %>
