    It seems this plugin isn’t available in wordpress site , i would like to protect image and links in my wordpress post with this plugin , it would be great if you could add this feature to new version of it . it needs to be added to single.php in wordpress to protect links and images from bot crawler so it ensures us that only people who can fill captcha can access links / image in wordpress post . i hope you add this feature for wordpress post content .
