How do disable reCaptcha for registration

I don't want the captcha nightmare on my registration page. But I can't find an option to disable it.

Am I missing something?

I am using the latest Vanilla 3.3

    On Vanilla 3.3, reCaptcha is a plugin. You can disable it inside the dashboard/settigns/plugins.

    But be careful, unless you have something else to protect your forum from spam bots, it may be hard to keep them away from your community.

  • This will stop the bots better than recaptcha if you make the question relevant to your genre, not a maths question.


  • Ah, that works.

    Thanks a lot

    It seems I can't disable the "Why do you want to join" question. Any option for that?

    I also don't seem to be able to enable a notification each time someone registers (I have enabled the account approval option)
