    Hi Lurie,
    This plugin is expected to work perfectly in BP’s registration page. I will see what is happening and give you a feedback.
    Thank you for that information.

    Hi Lurie,
    I’ve tested the plugin again for BuddyPress and the reCAPTCHA showed up on registration page, as expected. So, our next check is on your site: are your WP and BP versions up-to-date?

    Thank you, Carlos!

    Yes, my WP is 4.1 and BP is 2.1.1 version.
    If this can help, these are my links:

    For registration users are redirected to a particular page, as required by Buddypress – http://psy.upsc.md/inregistrare/.

    Hi Lurie,
    The code of Skt NURCaptcha has been checked. It’s ok.
    Sometimes this kind of problem arises from a conflict of plugins. I noticed you have installed Wangguard. Maybe there are other similar plugins activated in your site, and one of them maybe removing the call to the captcha from the ‘bp_signup_profile_fields’ action hook in BP.
    To check if there is a conflict, you may try to deactivate one of the plugins at a time, and then logout and verify if the captcha is showing up.
    If you prefer, feel free to send me a list of the plugins you have activated in your site so I can clone your environment and do the check myself. You may send the list in text format to carledug@gmail.com.

    Hi Lurie,
    Thank you for sending me the info about your site’s plugins and theme.
    That plugin “Commons in a Box” bundles a BuddyPress compatible theme which happens to override the regular “register.php” file from BP. This is no problem, as the register template is a model that may be customized by any theme.
    However, for some unexplained reason, the customization present in cBox theme completely removed the ‘bp_signup_profile_fields’ action hook from the register.php file. That hook is the right tool to place the reCAPTCHA into the register form. Without that hook the captcha will never be called into action.
    So, in order to have the captcha working as expected, you must reinsert this piece of code into that file (register.php):
    <?php do_action( 'bp_signup_profile_fields' ); ?>
    This line is to be added just before the line that reads:
    </div><!-- #profile-details-section --> (line 192)
    The file to be edited is found at /wp-content/themes/cbox-theme/registration/register.php
    As you have a child cBox theme, you need just to edit a copy of that file and leave it at the base directory of your child theme (/wp-content/themes/cbox-child-theme/register.php ). With that action hook restored to its place, the magic happens and the reCAPTCHA pops up on your register page.

    Dear Carlos, thank you very much for your help!

    The problem was solved, the captcha is displayed and I hope it will work at registration.

    Now I am motivated to make a review and, maybe, to translate your plugin in Romanian :).

    Hi Lurie,
    For your information, the problem with the cBox theme has been reported to the plugin’s authors, and they provided a definitive solution. So, if you update your cBox plugin’s theme it will work properly.

    Carlos, thank you very much! You provide the best support here on wordpress.org :)!

    Hello all,
    I have a big problem with skt nurcaptcha…
    I installed the plugin on my new wp website (http://gites-peche-tarn.fr) which I created online (not on my pc), but I didn’t understand that I had to put in a sort of activation key. I then disconnected from my administration area in order to test the captcha but it is just invisible! And now I cannot even go to my dashboard because I cannot connect again!!! This is horrible, I don-t know what to do!
    Please can anybody help me to eliminate the plugin so that I can acceed again? As I created my website online, I cannot acceed to the files…
    thank you so much for your help.

    Hi MagicCarpet81,

    If you are the owner of the site and want to eliminate the plugin, just go to the plugins directory on the server side of your WP installation and delete the “skt-nurcaptcha” directory. WordPress itself will take care of the rest. I guess this is the only thing that can solve your admin access problem, in fact.

    This plugin should disable itself when not finding the Google’s reCAPTCHA keys on your database. I will try to figure out why this has not happened in your site. Then a new release of the plugin will be published with this issue resolved.

    Hi MagicCarpet81,
    Flaw detected, fix released. New version 3.4.2 has just been released to avoid other users find the same issue that troubled your site.
    Sorry for the trouble.
    And thank you for reporting it.

    Hi Carlos, Thank you so much for your reply! But unfortunately thsi does not help me, as I don’t have yet my website on my own server…
    I just chose a theme, logged in and started to create my website, thinking to be able to import everything once I got my “personal training” on next wednesday (I don’t know in fact how to install and combine everything with my own domain, I’m a newbe…).
    I don’t have access to the directory of my website…
    Any other solution?
    Or a special contact in the WordPress Team?
    Thank you for the quick trouble shooting and the fix release! Hope to be able to use it on my website…
    Thanks a lot!

    …oh dear there are hundrets of spammers registering since yesterday and then they try to acceed but can’t (like me) and I get a new email every few minutes from a new subscriber or a warning email because of too many failed access temptations… Help please, how can I get out of that?

    I forgot to join the screen copy of the access to my website:
    http://www.gite-tarn.eu/captcha.png

    thank you so far for your help!

    Hi Carlos,
    Just to say that I finally found out how to acceed with FileZilla!!! I just deleted the captcha directory and now acceed to my dashboard without any problem! Thank you for your reactivity!!! Greetings from Southern France!
