To add the Captcha to your site, follow these steps:

  1. Start by registering on this site. Upon registration, you will receive a Public and a Private key.
  2. Open your site’s wp-config.php file in your favorite text editor, and add the following constants with both reCaptcha keys right before /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */:
    define( 'RECAPTCHA_PUBLIC_KEY', 'XXXXXXX' );
    define( 'RECAPTCHA_PRIVATE_KEY', 'XXXXXXX' );
    
  3. Voila! Your email sharing buttons are now protected against spammers!
