The new(ish) SEBLOD 2.5.x live plugin for Joomla 2.5.x has been both a godsend to the community it seems, myself included! I developed this plugin when I was creating a web site that needed to establish list results from a SEBLOD search that were based on live values from the article.

SPAM was becoming a bit of an annoyance on some recent Joomla! powered web sites I was developing, especially via contact and comment forms. The solution? Create a SEBLOD field plugin that takes your public and private keys from your Re CAPTCHA account and turns it into a beautiful ReCAPTCHA validation field that behaves just like a native SEBLOD field, can be placed on Admin and Site forms, and can be positioned anywhere on any template position as any other CCK field can.Read More >
