Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Recaptcha not stopping spam

  • I’m using contact form 7 with recaptcha along with contact form 7 db plugin to record submissions. Everything appears to be working fine, but I am still getting what appears to be bot spam. In those cases there is no recaptcha value recorded in contact form 7 db. Any ideas? Thanks, Troy

    Make sure you have set up reCAPTCHA correctly.

    If you cannot get that setup and working properly, I have found the WPBruiser plugin to be quite effective (and covers comments, logins and registrations as well). I have no affiliation with that plugin or author, just a satisfied user.

    Yes I have confirmed it is set up correctly and seems to work most of the time. Still there are spam form submissions without a recaptcha value entered into the contact form 7 db plugin record. That appears to indicate recaptcha was bypassed, but I don’t know. I will try the WP Bruiser plugin, thanks.
