Support » Plugin: Simple Google reCAPTCHA » Not working

  • Sorry the plugin is not working. It locks me out of my own wordpress site. Had to rename the folder in order to log in.

    Not working? I disagree. And in case of emergency, you could click on deactivation link – no need to rename plugin folder anymore…

    Mine is not working on registration or login but it works otherwise. Maybe because the registration is a popup on the homepage (that’s how the Flatsome theme works) rather than the wordpress registration?

    But it just says “Google reCAPTCHA verification failed. The response parameter is missing”.

    And the google admin console says “We detected that your site is verifying reCAPTCHA passed solutions less than 50% of the time. This could indicate a problem with your integration with reCAPTCHA. Please see our developer site for more information.”

    So something is definitely wrong with the implementation. I definitely have the right keys for v3 and I have v3 enabled. But it doesn’t work for registration, I’ve tested repeatedly. Seems to work fine on the cart and other pages, it doesn’t stop anyone from checking out, just from logging in and registering.

    Hi @natarem,

    I’m sorry if this could sound offensive, but this plugin was created for standard WordPress installation – for theme which respect WP standards. I really don’t know what Flatsome is and how does it work.

    If you expect that I’ll cover 100% of possible combinations (themes and other plugins), you are wrong. This is open source – you can use it or find another else or develop new one. Also you can do own fork from this plugin. You can suggest some change or give me a tips how to improve it, but this way?

    If someone tell me that this plugin is not working, why 30 000+ websites worldwide use it? Think first, before you decrease plugin rating, thank you for understand!

    Flatsome has 140,000+ sales on themeforest, it’s one of the most widely used paid themes. I did some more testing and I don’t think it’s a flatsome theme issue because the normal wordpress signin form also does not work with this plugin. It gives the same error I mentioned above. I understand that it’s working on other sites and I’m confused as to what’s going on but it doesn’t seem like there’s any good way to troubleshoot this. recaptcha v3 is just a nightmare, none of the plugins (paid or not) work correctly. I’ve paid for three plugins and they’re all giving issues of some kind with recaptcha v3 (I have one that works fine for v2). Probably go back to v2 and the v2 keys.

    Also I didn’t rate the plugin or leave a top level review.
