    In the settings of the plugin, I added my keys for Captcha. But when I open the settings of the module, there is not the “captcha” button, to add the tag. Why?

    Same for me as well. It was working fine until recently but I noticed a bit of spam getting through and when I went to check I saw the captcha button had gone.

    Same here. Tried using the latest ContactForm 7 (v5.1) with Google reCaptcha v2 “Check Box”, “Invisible” and v3 modes…none work. Reset the site and secret keys several times. No change.

    Getting all sorts of spam from the website’s contact form now.

    Getting spam since installing V3.
    Never had that issue with V2

    That tab for recaptcha is gone with the new update for contact 7 so not sure how to go back to V2 🙁

    Hiya,

    Got the same Problem. Receiving non-stop spam.

    ReCaptcha doesnt work, doesnt show either.

    Following up…I decided not to wait or try the various “fixes” posted on other threads and forums.

    I ended up deleting Contactform 7 from all of the sites I manage and installed the free version of WPForms:

    https://wpforms.com

    WPForms can still utilize reCaptcha v2, both “Checkbox” and “Invisible”.

    The free version of WPForms is still pretty robust and the resulting email messages are much nicer.

    I’ve tried WPForms in several configurations and all have worked flawlessly so far. They even offer info for some “hacks” like adding the sender’s IP address, etc.:

    I’ll post back if there are any issues or if the clients start receiving spam, but so far so good.

    Thanks richsadams – permission to copy and paste this response into all the many threads where people are having problems…?

    Same problem here, lot of spam since recaptcha 3 !
    Will uninstall Contactform7 from all the 100+ sites I manage…

    Hey Stormdart. Sure…no guarantees of course so a YMMV caveat is probably in order.

    Here’s the link to the WPForms Lite plugin:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wpforms-lite/

    It’s pretty intuitive, but here’s a nice tutorial:

    Note that the reCaptcha settings are not within the form creator element, but in the WPForms “Settings” under the plugin listed in the regular WP Admin menu sidebar. The reCaptcha keys need to be entered before the checkbox to use it shows up in the form creator part.

    wpforms-1

    WPForms can also import content from other contact forms including ContactForm 7. You can also export a json file if you want to duplicate/import the form you’ve created for other websites. Those options are under WPForms > Tools in the WP Admin side menu.

    same problem, recaptcha v3 doesn’t work !

    Some problem!!

    I downgrade 3 website (of 4) because v3 doesn’t work.

    I see the guide-to-install of V3 in recaptcha website and compare with contact form 7. The problem I see it’s the contact form 7 doesn’t add the script of the end of page:

    <script>
    grecaptcha.ready(function() {
    grecaptcha.execute(‘–HERE GO YOUR TOKEN–‘, {action: ‘action_name’})
    .then(function(token) {
    // Verify the token on the server.
    });
    });
    </script>

    Problem solved!

    Just install the plugin “wp rollback”
    After installing go to plugin overview. you now find a rollback option below all the plugins. Rollback to previous version.
    After this go to integration on the contact form and paste your keys again like you did in the beginning.
    Open your contactform on the backend and save it again. Make sure you add the recaptha again 🙂
    No go to your frond-end and refresh your page.
    And your done!

    Wait for next update with the fix.

    No need te install any other plugins.
