Contact Form With Captcha


Contact form with captcha is great plugin for your WordPress blog that enables you to have a contact form
with the reCAPTCHA challenge system.

All you have to do is install and activate the plugin, enter your reCAPTCHA keys and recipient email address
in the Admin section (and other optional fields), and place the shortcode [cfwc] on any page or post within
your blog.

The form asks users for their name, email address, subject and message. The plugin will validate email address
before sending the email. Labels can be modified based on your needs or language preferences.

The plugin supports multiple color themes for reCaptcha to meet your site or blog color schemes. It also supports two themes for the form – Parallel and stacked.

Plugin allows webmasters to specify/configure tags or identifiers before and after subject text (E.g: “#### SUBJECT ####”)so that you can easily mark/manage your emails based on the identifers.

I Don’t Have Any reCAPTCHA Keys. Where Can I Get Them From?

You can get them from the Google reCAPTCHA website( “Google reCAPTCHA website”).

Can I Use This Plugin With Other Plugins That Use reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA Form can be installed alongside any other plugins that use the reCAPTCHA challenge system, however you must
make sure that whatever post/page you insert the reCAPTCHA Form shortcode on does not already display a reCAPTCHA
form – this is because you cannot display more than one reCAPTCHA form on the same web page.


Stopped working

When I first installed it maybe 6 months ago it worked. I have two different site and though the page gives the sender the confirmation message that the message was successfully sent, it never arrives (two separate sites, two separate email addresses and NOT in SPAM folder.)
