Support » Plugin: WP Login reCAPTCHA » Good For Plain Website, Bad For eCommerce

  • As of the writing of this review, there is a fairly critical flaw in this plugin, that may or may not be related to specific themes, although that is unlikely…

    If you run an eCommerce site, where customers will be logging in to the frontend of your site to access their ‘my-account’ page, such as in Woocommerce, then beware that this plugin may prevent customers from logging in, as for some reason it will throw a 404 error for a page not being found, as it somehow interacts with frontend login’s even though it is designed to only work in the backend login area (/wp-login.php)…

    So if you run an eCommerce setup, make sure after installing this plugin that you create a customer account and try logging in from the frontend of your site, if you get a ‘page not found’ error, it is this plugin.

    I still give the plugin 3 stars because for a non-eCommerce site where you don’t have people logging in to the frontend, it works great… Greatly reduces the number of bots trying to login to all the sites I manage.

    I would like to see support in the future from the developer to allow for frontend logins that doesn’t conflict with the plugin, or simply allow for the recaptcha to show up anywhere a login form is dropped… Or maybe include a shortcode that we could use on the frontend login page so customers could login without getting a 404 page for not completing the recaptcha.

    But for an author that is handing out a nice little piece of security tech, can’t complain too much 🙂
