Works great for my version and I love the new recaptcha. Key link is broken since google updated their site but its easy to find still.

Just works

without a problem. The only thing is that is not customizable on which pages it can be enabled (like registration, comments, etc.). But, leaving that aside, works like a charm :)

By , for WP 3.9.1

Had a bit of a challange as most (not all) captcha plugins wouldn't work on the blog comments page (login, etc. was fine). Traced it back to be an issue with the subscribe2 plugin.
This one however works great!

Thanks for the plugin, I've tested the reCAPTCHA part with WordPress 3.6.1 and it works fine. It just needed a few undefined indexes fixed for which I've issued a pull request: https://github.com/blaenk/wp-recaptcha/pull/58


Still works with WP 3.6.1
By , for WP 3.6.1

We use this plugin to add reCaptcha to user registration, and it's still working with the latest WP 3.6.1, despite it only showing compatible up to 2.9.2.
