Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 reCAPTCHA Extension » contact form 7 + recaptcha not working

  • New to WordPress, signed up yesterday and currently trying to create a contact form.

    Used contact form 7 and got that working no issues but then decided to use the suggested recaptcha to aid spam and bots..

    followed the guide and its not working… goggled this and read endless threads about others struggling and im at the point now where i am considering getting rid of contact form 7 and recaptcha unless i can get help…

    – got both sets of google keys and integrated them
    – added [recaptcha] just before the submit button on the form using the button and selecting light etc

    wont load..

  • Hi all,
    I had same issue. I resolve it.
    1. Desable the plugin “Better WordPress reCAPTCHA” after integration!
    2. Try and enjoy!

    I was having this issue because I had two instances of recaptcha running. I was running Contact Form 7 with Better WordPress (BWP) Recaptcha. I resolved it by removing the keys from Contact Form 7’s “Integration” settings and leaving them only in BWP.

    I fixed this problem by using the Contact Form 7 Captcha plugin to add the captcha rather than the field that comes with Contact Form 7 itself.

    Follow the instructions here to set up your captcha:, however ignore the bit that says “Lastly, put a placeholder for a reCAPTCHA widget ([recaptcha]) into your contact form content.” and instead install the plugin mentioned above, go into it’s Contact Form 7 Captcha Settings and grab the shorcode it gives you there and add it into your form before the submit button.

    Works a treat!
