recaptcha not appearing on registration

edited April 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Simply, nothing appears where the recaptcha is supposed to be on the registration page. Anyone else experiencing this? (

    if the approval is open in the settings recaptcha does not work.
    You should change your registration setting.I had the same problem until I've changed this setting.
  • It's set to "Basic", and when I fill in the form (no captcha appears) and submit it, this is the error message I get:

    "The reCAPTCHA value was not entered correctly. Please try again."

    Something is wrong.
  • So from my investigation so far, it appears that almost a year ago Google announced that they are moving the recaptcha site under the google domain:

    A couple of weeks ago they started serving an invalid certificate:!msg/recaptcha/V7qswqBnA1o/JXjZjpjSR4EJ

    and I guess that that's why I'm seeing nothing on the registration page (though I would assume that more people would report this behavior!)

    Is my only option now to manually change the URLs for the captcha challenge/response?

    It's there:

    library/vendors/recaptcha/functions.recaptchalib.php:define("RECAPTCHA_API_SERVER", ""); library/vendors/recaptcha/functions.recaptchalib.php:define("RECAPTCHA_API_SECURE_SERVER", ""); library/vendors/recaptcha/functions.recaptchalib.php:define("RECAPTCHA_VERIFY_SERVER", "");
  • I had the same problem, solved it like this:
    1)Downloaded the latest recaptcha php library from here:
    2)renamed the file "recaptchalib.php" to "functions.recaptchalib.php"
    3)replace: "vanilla/library/vendors/recaptcha/functions.recaptchalib.php" with the new file

    hope this helps someone...
  • Well, this really should be fixed in the next version -- I hope it does.
  • Thanks mortlogik! Your solution for recaptcha fix works perfectly!

    It has been modified a while back already in the unstable branch, so it will be.
