    Hi there,

    So I’ve tried adding the google recaptcha to the contact form 7 on our contact us page. Site key and secret key have been created, added and no problems. The contact form 7 plugin is up to date. From the backend the tag [recaptcha] has been added to the form but the recaptcha isn’t appearing on the from end of the page.

    Is there a step that I’m missing? What needs to be done to add the recpatcha to the contact form 7 form?

    Thanks a million!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Exactly the same problem, after the last update WP and plugin, lost the captcha display and stopped working sending!

    From the backend the tag [recaptcha] has been added to the form but the recaptcha isn’t appearing on the from end of the page.

    reCAPTCHA (v3) does not use [recaptcha] tags anymore – any [recaptcha] tags are simply ignored.

    reCAPTCHA v3 works in the background but you should be seeing the Google reCAPTCHA v3 icon appearing on every website page.

    If it’s not there, reCAPTCHA v3 is not working correctly on your site (unless you deliberately disabled it).

    @dken – see I have the same problem! Can I just reply to someone else’s post with “Me too”?.

    If you are willing to create a new question, which details your issues, somebody will likely be able to help you there.

    Your problem is solved simply need a previous version of this plugin. I fixed it.

    I also have problems with reCAPCTHA for the pas few days. I updated the plugin.
    Whether I use recaptcha v2 or v3, CF7 does not show any recaptcha, but blocks any form submission sayint it does not validate. And Google captcha console says weired things.
    UPDATE: I found out those updates interact with my cookie manager plugin – cf https://wordpress.org/support/?post_type=topic&p=11172006

    @agneslesagegmailcom – this is @veeayuni’s question. Regular forum contributors (including the plugin author) will generally not respond to your comment here.

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for the info.
    I removed the [recaptcha] tag but nothing appears still.
    I’m so confused as to why it’s not working. I haven’t disabled it. I put in all the keys as the integration requested but it still doesn’t appear. And again the contact form 7 is up to date.

    What am I doing wrong?

    @dken how do i revert back to another version? I can’t seem to figure it out? The version I have is 5.1.1

    On my second site was the archive, as there is rarely update. So I took out and replaced. Version 5.0.5

    @veeayuni for me reverting to CF7 5.0.4 with reCAPTA v2 solved the issue (complicated by the cookie plugin). You can fnd legacy veriosn here, to be replaced by FTP.

    @buzztone I now, I just thought sharing infos on similar problems could possibly help.

    Thanks again guys. I clicked on the link and went to see if I could download an older version but I couldn’t find it anywhere 🙁

    Everytime I try to download anything it’s always the 5.1.1 version.

    🙁 why is it that they upgrade the plugin and upgrade the version of the recaptcha but none of it works!?

    Sorry, I am not sure where to find the legacy versions then.

    why is it that they upgrade the plugin and upgrade the version of the recaptcha but none of it works!?

    Do you use cookie control? It may be the interaction with it that causes issues. reCAPTHA by Google is not considered very inoffensive…
    In another thread here etthey suggest it works better with Google Captcha (reCAPTCHA) de BestWebSoft
