ReCaptcha not showing on VM reg page, text instead
« on: March 27, 2019, 20:03:00 pm »
Hi there! Searched forum and couldn't find similar situation - many thanks for any help.  I know this should just "work", but it doesn't...

Joomla 3.9.4

Url: (click Register or Guest, scroll to bottom)

Says "If you want to register as a user, please solve this security prompt (Captcha)"

I've got "Default Captcha" in Global Config set to CAPTCHA - reCAPTCHA
CAPTCHA - reCAPTCHA plugin is enabled, set to 2.0 with site/secret input.
In VM config, Use ReCaptcha for Registration is checked

What am I missing? What should I look for?

Your page code shows that you are trying to use the invisible reCAPTCHA service. So either you have set up the wrong plugin (it should be CAPTCHA - reCAPTCHA  and not  CAPTCHA - Invisible reCAPTCHA)  or maybe you have used the site/secret codes for the invisible and not the normal  reCAPTCHA

VM does not currently support the invisible version.
