  • bogdantaut


    looks like after updateing to wordpress 5, recapcha functions in Contact Form 7 doesn’t work anymore; the field doesn’t show in the front-end but also when configuring a form, I don’t see the button of adding the recaptha field anymore

    I put it in the form with following syntax
    <label> reCAPTCHA
    [recaptcha] </label>

    please help me out

    reCAPTCHA v3 doesn’t need a CAPTCHA widget (the “I’m not a robot” checkbox used in reCAPTCHA v2) to work, so [recaptcha] form-tags are no longer necessary. If [recaptcha] form-tags are found in a form template, Contact Form 7 5.1 or higher ignores them and replaces them with an empty string.



    But why? I prefer the v2 with “I’m a robot” checkbox and I was using it.

    Why a developers decided to ignore the fact of existing Google reCAPTCHA? And if the newest version doesn’t use it anymore, why there is still an option for placing a key? It has no sense for me and I feel confused.



    Go to this recent post for 3 fixes, one that includes v2 Google recaptcha.
