You should go to the Settings page and select Theme from dropdown list. Then you must click the 'Save Changes' button.

How can I change the location of Google Captcha (reCAPTCHA) in the comments form?

It depends on the comments form. If the hook call by means of which captcha works ('after_comment_field' or something like this) is present in the file comments.php, you can change captcha positioning by moving this hook call. Please find the file 'comments.php' in the theme and change position of the line

do_action( 'comment_form_after_fields' );

or any similar line - place it under the Submit button.

In case there is no such hook in the comments file of your theme, then, unfortunately, this option is not available.

I would like to add Google Captcha (reCAPTCHA) to the custom form on my website. How can I do this?

  1. Install the Google Captcha (reCAPTCHA) plugin and activate it.
  2. Open the file with the form (where you would like to add Google Captcha (reCAPTCHA) to).
  3. Find a place to insert the code for the Google Captcha (reCAPTCHA) output.
  4. Insert the necessary lines:
if( function_exists( 'gglcptch_display' ) ) { echo gglcptch_display(); };

If the form is HTML you should insert the line with the PHP tags:

<?php if( function_exists( 'gglcptch_display' ) ) { echo gglcptch_display(); }; ?>
