We get our share spam accounts on our MediaWiki, and we'd like to curb it. According to MediaWiki's Extension:ConfirmAccount:
The ConfirmEdit extension can be used (in conjunction with the ConfirmAccount extension) in order to use captchas to stop flood requests...
Then, in MediaWiki's API:Account creation:
When used with Extension:ConfirmEdit, a CAPTCHA may be presented for new account creations...
The API/CAPTCHA docs then go to provide what looks like a few JSON strings, without information how to actually enable a CAPTCHA at account creation without the need for Sysops or Bureaucrats intervention.
Can someone provide clear and concise instructions on how to enable enable a CAPTCHA at account creation without the need for Sysops or Bureaucrats approval under MediaWiki 1.25?
(My apologies for a broad question like this. I prefer to ask narrow questions, but the MediaWiki docs are so crummy in this area I have to beg for the answer).
