Editing the wiki without captcha checks

Daniel Beck
Hi everyone,

We use captchas on the wiki to reduce the amount of spam we get. As a side effect, it's annoying legitimate users that they get captchas all the time.

When I looked at this a while back, we weren't on the correct version of Confluence to do something about it. Now we are, so all current plugin maintainers are now exempt from the captcha when editing wiki pages.

I plan to update the list of users exempt from captchas periodically, but so far this is a manual process. This is being tracked as INFRA-1997.

Interestingly the last few times I've been editing the Wiki (late last year/ early this year) I didn't enter anything in the CAPTCHA when I hit save and it saved without issue. Not sure if that's because of something you've configured but guessing not as it sounds like you've only just done this change?

Same here, I have been saving changes without CAPTCHA for a long time.

Oh well.

At least now we're prepared when this bug is fixed :-)
