I have Issue with reCAPTCHA box below Submit button
Here is the website http://carokomp(dot)com/almanacka/
I have found this advice from this website http://www.vijaypadiyar.in/blog/2011/12/fixing-alignment-of-recaptcha-submit-button but i cant manage to applicate the solution on artisteer+tux theme.
Have any of you had the same problem and solved the issue ?

I don’t have any experience with the reCAPTCHA code you mentioned, so I can’t offer you any advice for that specific problem you are encountering.
Web sites use CAPTCHA to prevent robots spamming your comments, or to add a layer of security when logging to a site, or to prevent the bots in registering to your site. With a CAPTCHA installed, only humans are allowed to do those 3 function. That said, some bots are capable of beating the system, by using OCR (optical character recognition).
That said, I use a different solutions (and in my opinion better and easier) to the mentioned problems.
– To ensure that bots won’t brute force their way into my site I use https://wordpress.org/plugins/limit-login-attempts/ which works fine with WP 4.1.
– The only unresolved problem left is the process of registration. For that, if you want there are plugins to ensure new registrants to be inactive, until you approve them manually. For general web sites may be you want to use something like that, but I personally would not, specially when you are running an e-commerce site. You would want people to login, or register as soon as possible, so you can make your sale before they change their minds.
Not exactly what you were looking for, but these are some alternate solutions.
Thanx for your input.
looked at the plugins you recommended.
limit-login-attempts I have already installed and it works great with multisite.
stop-spam-comments use a different approach to stop spam that I did not know about.
thanx for the tip.
Now I just have to test if it is also compatible with wordpress multisite.

I’m careful when I choose plugins to multisite so i went the easy way and picked a similar recaptcha plugin that is working kind of the same way, it is SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam
Nick i will try your anti-spam plugin advice in a ordinary wordpress install.
