CAPTCHA for Congress
Hey! Thanks for showing up for reproductive rights. If you're here, you must want to put CAPTCHA for Congress on your site, and this guide is here to help you do that!
(Disclaimer: Actual CAPTCHAs, intended to prevent spambots from submitting forms, take a lot of work to create and maintain. Don't use this in place of an actual CAPTCHA. Do use this to show your support for reproductive health.)
We've built CAPTCHA for Congress to be used in one of two ways:
- Page Load: You can install the CAPTCHA to appear once a page is loaded. For maximum awareness, your homepage is best. If you'd prefer to use CAPTCHA on secondary pages, we recommend areas that don't interrupt key conversions, e.g. your blog, your educational content, or forums/community pages.
- Click or Form Submit: You can have the CAPTCHA appear when the visitor clicks on an element (a button, link, image, etc.) or when they submit a form. The CAPTCHA will not interfere with native browser events — when the visitor dismisses the CAPTCHA, they will be redirected to the link's URL or the form will submit as it would have by default.
CAPTCHA for Congress can be added to your site by adding the code below somewhere in the HTML of your page.
Appear on page load
If you would like the CAPTCHA to appear automatically once the page has loaded, then you can add
data-c4c="auto" to the element. Note that, even if you use the automatic method, you still need an element to add that attribute to — the CAPTCHA will also use that element to position itself on the screen.
<div data-c4c="auto"> The CAPTCHA will automatically appear on the page! </div>
By default, the CAPTCHA appears over a semi-transparent "shadow" that covers the rest of the page. To disable this, add
data-c4c-shadow="none" to the element.
<div data-c4c="auto" data-c4c-shadow="none"> The CAPTCHA will automatically appear on the page with no shadow behind it! </div>
Appear on click or form submit
If you add the attribute
data-c4c to any element, the CAPTCHA will appear when the visitor clicks on that element! We recommend only using this approach with page elements that a user would ordinarily interact with, such as a link or a button.
If the element you add the attribute to is a
<form>, then the CAPTCHA will appear when the visitor submits the form. Then, once they dismiss it, the form data will be submitted as it would originally have been.
<button data-c4c>Click me!</button>
<form action="/" method="POST" data-c4c> <input type="email" /> <input type="submit">Submit</input> </form>
