Google reCAPTCHA verification failed
I just launched WP-Foro, all excited to have my users check it out, but they can't register.
They get the error: Google reCAPTCHA verification failed
My reCAPTCHA API Keys (version 2, "I'm not a robot" checkbox) are green/accepted.
I do have reCAPTCHA enabled and it works in other forms that I have on my site, but not for guests who come to FP Foro and need to register. Is Version 2 perhaps not the right one to use?
Forums >> Tools >> A·kis·met is enabled
What am I missing?
Should I turn on WPress registration instead of WP Foro's reg?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I am stuck without users being able to register.
So, I figured this out (sorta), so I thought I'd share my findings in case others run into this...
1) I noticed that there were two reCAPTCHA boxes in my login & register screens.
After some experimentation, I determined that if users skipped the first but checked the second, they could register and log on successfully.
I tried various things, searched forums, but couldn't figure out how to get rid of the duplicate boxes.
2) Through trial and error, I also determined that the second reCAPTCHA box was for agreeing to get an email notification for the account/password. That needed to be checked only. ???
3) SOLUTION: I turned OFF the wpForo login/registration/login forms from Forums>> Tools and enabled the default WordPress ones (again, on the same page - Forums >> Tools).
Now, my login pages have just one reCAPTCHA box and my guest users can register.
