Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Contact Form 7 – reCaptcha v2 causing problems on PageSpeed/GTMetrix

    I’ve tested my website in Google pagespeed and gtmetrix. Here’s what I’ve found.

    Under “Remove unused CSS” in Google pagespeed, https://www.gstatic.com/recaptcha/api2/v1556519546724/styles__ltr.css. was listed at 89KB.

    Additionally, in GTMetrix, I got an F in “Defer parsing of JavaScript” because this script https://www.gstatic.com/recaptcha/api2/v1559543665173/recaptcha__en.js repeat at least 14 times!

    I tried to defer the js file in Async JavaScript plugin, but it’s not working. Also I don’t know what to do with the css file either.

    What should I do? Should I look for another recaptcha plugin or something?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    I tested your form – looks like reCAPTCHA v3 is not setup correctly on your site.

    Uncaught ReferenceError: grecaptcha is not defined at (index):178

    Sorry, I had it disabled on http://test.idssite.com/home-clone/. It’s still active on the rest of the pages such as http://test.idssite.com/.

    Can you recommend better alternatives to this plugin that I was using: “Contact Form 7 – reCaptcha v2”? I don’t want it to affect the Google Page Speed.
