Roller reCAPTCHA Plugin

Prerequisites

  • JDK 1.5 or greater.
  • Roller 4.0 or greater.

Copyright and Licensing

The source code to this plugin is released under an Apache 2.0 License.

Copyright 2008 Alex Coles.

A copy of the License may be found in the accompanying APACHE-LICENSE-2.0 file.

This plugin bundles the ReCaptcha Java Library, from Tanesha Networks.

Installation

Install files

You can use the installer script provided to perform the file installation for you: ROLLER_INSTALL_DIR=/usr/local/tomcat/webapps/roller ./install.sh

Or, if you prefer a manual installation, copy the following libraries to your ROLLER_INSTALL_DIR/WEB-INF/lib:

  • recaptcha4j-0.0.7.jar: the ReCaptcha Java Library
  • roller-recaptcha.jar: this plugin

Configuration

  1. Edit your roller-custom.properties with your favourite editor. If you installed Roller to Tomcat for example, your Roller configuration will most likely be found in $CATALINA_HOME/common/classes/roller-custom.properties.

    You'll need to go to http://recaptcha.net/ and get the API keys. Once you've done that, set the following property in your roller-custom.properties:

    comment.authenticator.recaptcha.key_public=<get one at recaptcha.com> comment.authenticator.recaptcha.key_private=<get one at recaptcha.com>

    and make the ReCaptchaCommentAuthenticator your comment authenticator:

    comment.authenticator.classname=\ com.ikonoklastik.roller.ui.plugins.comments.recaptcha.ReCaptchaCommentAuthenticator

  2. Once you're done, restart your Roller web application. Ensure that comments are enabled in your site-wide settings.

Building the Source

This plugin was developed with the NetBeans IDE. A NetBeans project is included along with the source code.

To compile the Roller reCAPTCHA plugin, you'll need to download either the Roller source or binaries:

wget http://apache.mult idist.com/roller/roller-4/v4.0.0/bin/apache-roller-4.0.zip
unzip apache-roller-4.0.zip

The plugin has the following dependencies, which you will need to include in your compile path:

  • roller-business
  • roller-core
  • roller-web
  • commons-httpclient
  • commons-logging
  • Servlet API

More detailed instructions for building the source will be added.
