    I’m confused of what you mean.

    I suppose you understand that the recaptcha shortcode is to be added to the contact form 7 form, just in the textarea on the left where you generate the tag and not to be used directly on a post/page/text widget.

    What you have to add to your post/page/text widget is the shortcode provided by contact form 7 that is something like:
    [contact-form-7 id="211" title="Contact Form 1"]

    After you have done that, a contact form should appear in the post, page or text widget where you added that shortcode. And if that form includes a recaptcha in its configuration then the recaptcha should appear either (NOTE: the recaptcha is only shown to unregistered users).

    If you are doing it this way and it fails I suggest you try to first use a contact form 7 without recaptcha to let me know if it is BWP recaptcha extension the one that is breaking your contact form or just contact form 7 is not working for you.

    Thank you, for your fast reply.

    Yes I understand how to use the plugin;
    – I have installed Contact form 7, re-captcha, and your plugin.
    – I created a form with cf7, and added the re-captcha shortcode to the left.
    – Than I added the cf7 shortcode to my page.

    But when adding the re-captcha to the form, the form disappear on my website. If I just use the contact form without it, it work perfectly.

    The recaptcha plugin needed is Better WordPress recaptcha but for sure that’s not the problem or the plugin would show a warning indicating it is not installed and it is required.

    If the contact form 7 output does not reach the browser then it is almost sure you hit a php error before it is printed. Can you check php error log to try to look for an error? I suppose you don’t see it on screen because display_errors is off (which is totally normal). I will review the code to try to understand where the problem could come from.

    The data that could be useful to investigate would be:
    – The error in php error log.
    – Is there any other Contact Form 7 Extensions installed? to try to investigate if there could be a problem with that.
    – PHP version as this has been developed in server with PHP 5.3. maybe I have to check if I added something PHP > 5.3 if you confirm you run earlier version (ex. 5.2).
    – Can you see the recaptcha preview in the configuration page BWP reCAPT->Theme Options?
    – You are using WordPress, wordpress mu, wordpress multi-site?

    Here is a error from the log concerning the plugin:
    Notice: Use of undefined constant RECAPTCHA_API_SERVER - assumed 'RECAPTCHA_API_SERVER' in /home/diploma/public_html/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7-bwp-recaptcha-extension/includes/CF7bwpCAPT.class.php on line 182

    The only plugins installed that use wpcf7 are:
    – Better WordPress reCAPTCHA Version 1.0.1
    – Contact Form 7 BWP reCAPTCHA Extension Version 0.0.3

    My version of PHP is 5.3.8
    Yes I see the preview of the recaptcha
    No im not using multi site, its a normal wordpress 3.2.1
