Before I am able to create a test post in the forum, I am prompted to create a membership. When I go to create my membership I am prompted to set up "reCAPTCHA" and am prompted to get an API key from

After following the simple instructions I receive an error.



  • reCatacha requires fsockopen if I remember.

    grep is your friend.

  • The error I am receiving is

    "Fatal error: Cannot redeclare _recaptcha_qsencode() (previously declared in /home/sdrobles/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-recaptcha/recaptchalib.php:47) in /home/sdrobles/public_html/forum/library/vendors/recaptcha/functions.recaptchalib.php on line 55"

    I get this after I enter the public and private key in the plug in settings and click on the new membership button.
