Contact Form 7 reCAPTCHA

Description

The new reCAPTCHA is here and now you can add it to your Contact Form 7 forms.

A significant number of your users can now attest they are human without having to solve a CAPTCHA. Instead with just a single click they’ll confirm they are not a robot. Google calls it the No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA experience.

Why this plugin is different from the others:

  • reCAPTCHAs for multiple forms on the same page
  • define the API keys in your wp-config file to hide the settings page
  • Github repo – please help me keep it updated : https://github.com/iambriansreed/contact-form-7-recaptcha

Reviews

Good, but currently flawed

This plugin is great! However, there’s currently a pretty major flaw with how it is implemented. The wpcf7_validate() function, which essentially checks to make sure the CAPTCHA check passed, only actually validates the CAPTCHA response if the “contact_form_7_recaptcha” POST parameter is present.

So, all a malicious user would need to do would be to simply omit “contact_form_7_recaptcha” from the POST data…

An alternative approach that isn’t vulnerable to this weakness would be to load the form itself from the DB and check to see if the recaptcha shortcode is present. If it is, then the validation would proceed. If it isn’t, then validation is unnecessary.

Also, in its current form, the plugin doesn’t show any sort of feedback if the user fails to check the box. I modified script.js so that an error message (“Please check the box.”) is shown in this case.

Cannot get to work Contact Form 7

This plugin causes Contact Form 7 (v4.7) to show the ‘Sender’s message failed to send’, the fields don’t get cleared, and Flamingo puts the form data into spam.

Please advise.
