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
