Captcha questions is a light-weight module that employs a very simple captcha-mechanism to stop unwanted form submissions be they comment spam or account registrations.

It has no dependancies. It is not affiliated with the CAPTCHA module.

Permission settings, help and configure is available from module list after installation is completed.

You create a question/answer-pair and attach this to selected forms. If the user fails to answer the question correctly, the form will not be submitted.

Logging to database is handled in a submodule and is entirely optional.

It is similar in nature to Trick Question and Captcha Riddler, but will be actively maintained.

Image captchas can be hard also for humans. Captcha questions was made after realising most spam can be blocked by a simple question that is easy for humans but very difficult for automated scripts.

It is recommended to make the questions as simple as possible, perhaps even include the answer in the question like this:

'What is Mickeys last name?. It's Mouse'.

You could also do simply 'What is 1+1?'. You are encouraged to experiment and find the simplest question you can imagine while still blocking automated form submissions.
