Contact Form 7 reCAPTCHA Extension
CF7 shortcode not displaying (8 posts)

    Hi I just downloaded, installed, activated and configured your plugin. I'm using it with WP-reCAPTCHA to include in CF7 forms, all versions latest.

    At the moment, when I select 'reCAPTCHA' in the drop-down menu to get a shortcode for the form, nothing comes out. In fact, all the box says is a big title "reCAPTCHA" with no shortcode box (that should've looked like [recaptcha recaptcha-54] or something similar, like every other element you can get in CF7).

    Any help or advice on this would be very welcome.

    i'm facing the same issue, and it's working fine before my upgrade to WP3.9.1 !!!
    CF 3.9
    Contact Form 7 reCAPTCHA extension 0.1.0
    WP-reCAPTCHA 3.2

    Very strange.

    Thks for your help

    Any idea on when we can expect a correction/update/bugfix?

    @mengsel - Good question. The sooner the better because "Really Simple CAPTCHA" is just that: really simple... to crack.

    If any developer is willing to update this plugin, please let us know how we can help. It seems like the original author hasn't been active for the past 6 months, so I expect little from his side at the moment.

    I believe I found a fix. I have had the same type of issue with a couple other contact form 7 extensions after the release of CF7 3.9.

    Here is what I did:
    In file contact-form-7-recaptcha-extension/includes/CF7reCAPTCHA.class.php
    On line #773
    Change: function tag_pane( &$contact_form ) {
    To: function tag_pane( $contact_form ) {

    basically just removed the & symbol. This was the same fix implemented on CF7-dynamic-extension

    This might be worth adding to the next release of this plugin.
