Recaptcha in checkout page wrong position (top)
« on: September 30, 2018, 20:17:06 pm »
I´m wondering that currently the recaptcha field is not the last one - it`s first....so users can not register.
Don`t know since when it changed...

How can i change position of recaptcha so that it will be the last field ?

It`s not listed in virtuemart customer fields (registration)...

Under VM configuration/shop

Turn off "use captcha for registration"

Yes - that`s what I did now but isn`t that a problem with spam registrations now ?

Move the captcha in Your template override to the position You want it to have. I do not use the recaptcha and have no problems with spam registaration.

Why can the not register ?

Clicking the captcha can be done before filling in the other fields.

Have You used captcha before ?

captcha will only prevent automated or machine  registrations - any spammer can fill a captcha element as easily as anyone else.
But running many sites IMHO it isn't needed on most sites ... if u set up the site so they can only easily access the registration after adding to cart it is simply too much work for most spammers to bother with

for Virteumart checkout it may be ok without recaptha as customers have some more fields to fill out than in normal Joomla registration.

The Problem is Joomla User Rgistration and Contact Form....field are in every Joola System the same.
When Captcha is hacked - Spam is possible...

What does Joomla suggest to avoid it ?

in these cases if u start to experience spam then of course u can add captcha

BTW -- normally you would disable the Joomla reg form on a VM site

I disbaled Joomla Registration now because google recaptcha seems to be hacked - especially at standard registration and contact forms.
Here a Spam message from joomla contact form with recaptcha enabled:
Quote
XEvilBestCew <k2promoter2018@yandex.com>

Yep, f*kin sp*am. Yes, yes, yes, AGAIN. And - yes, IT F*KIN WORKS BECAUSE YOU READ IT! :) Because XEvil 4.0 WAS RELEASED! It's bypass ANY captcha included ReCaptcha-2 and ReCaptcha-3.
Neeed more info (just to...maybe kill this Evil? ;))

Just Google or YouTube for it.
You'll be impressed.

Peace to you, bro! :)
