Captcha only shown on 2nd attempt
« on: March 08, 2018, 09:14:15 am »
Hi Folks!

The Captcha is not shown on the registration page on the first try.

Only after you try to send the formular VM tells you that you have to enter the captcha and it shows above the registration.

VM does this with every template, so it's not template related:

Any suggestions why this happens?

THX!

In the current VM version the recaptcha shows only after completing the user/billing information and then hitting the Register and Checkout button.  Is that what you are seeing?

Hi Kelvyn!

Yeah. Didn't know it was standard. Isn't it strange? The customer wants to continue, hits the continue button and lands on the same page, but now with the captcha? Ist there a way to show it instantly?

I was able to reproduce that behaviour, but I didn't check yet if this is happens only in the latest versions or has always been like that. However, I would recommend to use the SpambotCheck plugin from https://www.vi-solutions.de/en/joomla-plugin-plgspambotcheck instead of the recaptcha. Works fine with my VM shop since a couple of years. I have no spam from the cart. Occationally, at times when my site it hit by too many spambots, I also activate https://joomla-extensions.kubik-rubik.de/de/downloads/ecc-easycalccheck-plus/joomla-3 for the Joomla contact form and the VM 'Ask a question about this product' form. Also it is a good idea to unpublish the Joomla login module, because spambots love it. For a shop this is usually not needed. (You have the login/registration in the cart).
