  • PLEASE either fix V3 ReCaptcha immediately OR allow Contact Form 7 to use V2. Updated the plugin yesterday and automatically tons of Spam messages via our contact forms.

  • I recommend removing the current version and uploading the old version OR if you have a backup restore it.
    Version 5.0.5

    I have already restored a back-up to prevent the Spam. But this needs to be fixed, or is this the end of using Contact Form 7 forever?

    Yes. I agree. But, for now I think this is the only solution until it is fixed.

    This is a very unofficial change on my part, but it seems to work for me.

    Edit line 114 of modules/recaptcha.php (version 5.1)

    It reads:

    return $spam;

    Change it to:

    return true;

    This will change it so that any submission that does not attempt the Recaptcha V3 validation will be rejected.

    LikewiseI am now getting spam from teh Contact form 7 as there is no reCaptcha stopping spambots. All since I upgraded Contact form 7 and now recaptcha3

    Really frustrating

    Help !!
    Since using recaptcha V3 I get a lot of Spam.. Please update Contact Form 7.. Thx.

    I have had to shutdown all of my contact forms because of the massive amount of spam we are receiving. It does not look like reCaptcha V3 is working at all!

    The only way to get around this at the moment is to revert back to the previous version 7.5.05 and use captcha v2

    I hope this will be fixed soon.

    Yup, spam all over the place, thanks in advance for a quick fix.
