Addon [Soft-Solid] - Extension Of Recaptcha Module


We present new addon to CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor extends the reCaptcha security system. Addon allows you to create custom security schemas against bots for other parts of service, for defined controllers and its modes.

We start from installing an addon:

A new position in menu appeared, that allows you to create and manage security schemas:

Below you can see list of defined securities:

Here you can see how to add custom security schema against bots:

We can define these parameters:

  • Controller - controller name
  • Mode - controller working mode
  • Method (POST,GET) - protection against each type of attack
  • Verification scenario - defined verification scenarion by reCaptcha
  • Save post data - which data will be saved
  • Terminate process
  • Controller status - status, with which bot will be redirected
  • Controller link - redirecting link

Below we can see working security. After an URL is called, system makes a redirect with defined schema. It doesn't allow bots to send message without entering reCaptcha. In this way, we can protect any controller or addon, which is endangered or it is used to send spam through it.

Above we can see what happens without security. Bot can freely send any data through not protected address.

This doesn't make any sense to me. I have been a webmaster for 20 years. Do you need to be a software programmer to use this?

Could you make this more user friendly and explain its use in more simpler terms?

Can I use this to block registrations from ?

Can I use this to block registrations from a specific IP range?

Can I use this to block registrations from outdated user agents?

If so, then please explain how.

What methods are there to block bots?

Hello P-Pharma
This solution is useful when you have an addon with which you can send data from a page, e.g. ask about a product. If it is not protected against spam then you can be sure that robots will send to a lot of spam.
This addon allows you to add to the standard addon "Google reCAPTCHA" security schemes, for addons that require it.
We use it on our website to secure tab "Product question" on the detailed product page. Since the inclusion of addon, we have not received a single email with spam.
I hope I answered your question.

Hi Robert,

We get a lot of spam bot registrations and if we turn on product questions, reviews, comments again then these will cause thousands of spam comments.
A solution for this would be welcome. I know many people here need it.

But the explanation of how it works is too complex. I don’t understand much of it.
The parameters are not explained well.

What is a controller?
What is a controller working mode?
What do you mean by ‘defined verification scenarion by reCaptcha’? Do you mean ‘the verification is by ReCaptcha’?
I dont understand this: ‘Controller status - status, with which bot will be redirected’ In the screenshot it says controleld.status.ok. Please explain. Do you mean that if the bot gets this status returned that they are redirected at that point? If yes: why?

Are there step by step instructions on how to operate the addon?

Hello P-Pharma

Please look in the file /app/addons/recaptcha/schemas/security/antibot_rules.php and it will be clear.

As I wrote, our addon allows you to extend the standard security scheme by google recaptcha. In the above file you have described the security of some standard controllers in CS-Cart. With the help our addon, you can add your own rules.

We will try to describe this addon in more detail so that everything is clear.

Best regards


I will await the details.

Hello P-Pharma.

If you want, I will send you this addon for testing and in a specific example we will explain its operation.
