Simple captcha module


This module provides a simple captcha ("Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart") challenge (distorted characters in an image).

It is used to ensure that only a user who can read the distorted characters and enter them in the related input field can submit the following forms:

  • contact
  • invite
  • pricealarm
  • suggest

The captcha module then validates the submitted value against the expected one and then decides whether to process the request (e.g. send contact mail to shop administrator) or refuse and show an error message instead.


Please proceed with one of the following ways to install the module:

Module installation via composer

In order to install the module via composer, run the following commands in commandline of your shop base directory (where the shop's composer.json file resides).

composer require oxid-projects/captcha-module

Module installation via repository cloning

Clone the module to your OXID eShop modules/oe/ directory:

git clone captcha

Module installation from zip package

Activate Module

  • Activate the module in the administration panel.
