Support » Everything else WordPress » WordPress.org Captcha Broken

  • The login process to wordpress.org’s forums is messed up. You get caught in an infinite loop of logging in, going to the captcha page and then back to the login page, back to captcha.

    Please test this stuff before implementing.

    What are you referring to? The login process here doesn’t use a captcha.

    https://login.wordpress.org/

    It does.

    I can’t paste a screen shot in here… Tell me where to send it so you can see.

    Please solve this math problem to prove that you are not a bot. Once you solve it, you will need to log in again.

    Oh, THAT. I think of CAPTCHAs are evil image things.

    The automated system had a concern about your login here and once you’ve solved it with the answer, your user ID and password then it works.

    It’s not picking on your account, I’ve been challenged here too occasionally for the same thing. I solve it and re-login.

    I’ve been doing websites for 17 years. I know how to do captchas. This was caught in a loop and made me do it 4 or 5 times in a row.
