Support » Plugin: CAPTCHA 4WP » Users Can Not Log In

  • Resolved carmpocalypse



    I am having issues with Users not being able to log in to the site. It says “ERROR: Please solve the CAPTCHA to proceed.” I use V3. There is no solving a CAPTCHA. It also displays this message when trying to reset a password on the reset password form.

    On the website, I have two Users. One is an Admin, the other is a Subscriber. The Admin user can log in without issue, the Subscriber can not log in at all because of the CAPTCHA error message, as well as, using reset password and lost password is impossible because of the CAPTCHA message.

    I just recently added a Subscriber so not sure how long this issue would have been going on.

    PHP version and Plugin Info:
    -PHP 8.0
    -CAPTCHA 4WP (Premium) 7.0.6
    -Captcha Score settings = 0.5

    I am using the default WordPress login. I use the premium version of the plugin but I noticed others having similar issues using the free version. If you need me to submit a ticket on the website, I can.

    *UPDATE* Also tried V2 Invisible and get the same message, no CAPCHTA puzzle pops up. (Also used the correct Google keys for V2 Invisible)

    When changing the Captcha Score for V3 to .01, users can log in again. However, the issue where users can not log in because of the error message still remains with V2 (Invisible).

    I assume the problem was with JavaScript optimization settings, this *should* be fixable with some settings tweaks, let me know if you want/ need assistance on this carmpocalypse 🙂

    I had the reCAPTCHA script excluded from JS optimization, as well as, had it set to be loaded with the async flag. The issue was resolved after removing it from using async. Thanks for the offer for assistance but all is good now.
