Title: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on December 28, 2007, 12:16:40 PM
Link to Mod (https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1044)

About
-----
This modification allows you to use reCAPTCHA (http://www.google.com/recaptcha) instead of the built-in Visual Verification system. It supports the SMF 2.0 series.

Portions of the code use the PHP reCAPTCHA API.

This mod and other information can be found at: http://www.animeneko.net/projects/smf/


Features
--------


How to Use
----------
You can enable reCAPTCHA by going to:

Admin -> Configuration -> Security and Moderation -> Anti-Spam

A set of keys are required for operation of reCAPTCHA. A link is provided in the settings to register for a key pair.


2.0 Upgrade Note
----------------
If you are upgrading from a version older than 2.0, there is one major change to be aware of.

Starting with version 2.0, this modification no longer replaces the built-in image verification. It now operates independently of those settings. If you don't want the built-in image verification, make sure to set it to "None".


Known Issues
------------

What's the advantage of this?
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: karlbenson on December 29, 2007, 10:02:18 AM
your helping to digitise books.

When scanning book and trying to use OCR, it is very imperfect and makes tonnes of mistakes.
So reCaptcha are using humans to translate what the letters are, as a byproduct of passing a validation test.

So reCaptcha are using humans to translate what the letters are, as a byproduct of passing a validation test.

The bonus is that these are proven to have issues with computers trying to OCR them, so they actually are tougher for spam bots than computer-generated CAPTCHA. At least that is the case in theory, and that theory has held up well so far.

Note that as this changes stuff with the default image verification, it will not apply cleanly if you are using another mod that also changes this stuff.

Also, if you have any suggestions on how to improve things or some localized language strings, please PM me with them. I'd like to keep this topic for support, if possible.

I just clicked on the link to recaptcha.net and got this

Quote
Problem loading page
The connection has timed out
The server at recaptcha.net is taking too long to respond.

Does this affect the verification on the forum? Is it dependent on their site?
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on January 11, 2008, 10:58:17 AM
Yes, this does depend on the service at recaptcha.net. I personally haven't noticed any downtime, but of course various factors could influence if you can access the site.

I just checked and recaptcha.net is functioning. If you check and have issues connecting again, there might be something on your local computer or network preventing you from connecting.

Sorry, but you're not allowed to register multiple accounts at the same time from the same computer.


Default or through this mod only?

And What is the trigger of this prompt

Glad you like it, it is fairly new so I'm not surprised you didn't know. If you have any suggestions, let me know.

That is part of the built-in registration system. Basically, once you register an account through the front of the site, your session keeps you from doing another registration. You can close your browser and open it again to kill the session.

If you are an admin and need to register multiple users, you can do so through the admin area.

Frst off, great job on this mod, I hope I get it working. This is much better than the default CAPTCHA.

I installed this mod and it seems to be giving me problems. It failed when I attempted to install it through the package manager, specifically Themes/default/Register.template.php, probably because I have many mods installed, though I don't think any touch that file, so I applied the edits manually and ended up with a parse error, which I was able to 'fix' and had some strange results. (This is probably because I'm a PHP newbie)

Under Admin -> Registration -> Settings, I end up having an extra textbox and some of the options messed up.
(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg2.freeimagehosting.net%2Fuploads%2F3d5e79b053.jpg&hash=ee1f8b9e98aec81a875b7e27761392ef) (http://img2.freeimagehosting.net/uploads/3d5e79b053.jpg)

It's very likely that I did something wrong when making the edits manually. My registration page also becomes a little wonky.

Hello everyone!

What changes have to be made to the register.template.php file? I have the same issue where it does not install. All other modifications are fine except for this file.

Cal you please post that has to be done to the register.template.php file?

Thank you and God bless,

Hello everyone,

Please if you do nt mind can you please post the instructions in order to manually update the Register.template.php file?

I am currently getting the following error in the error log:

Code: [Select]
8: Undefined index: recaptcha_enabled
File: /home/content/t/s/g/tsgcomputers/html/forum/Sources/Register.php
Line: 175

Thank you very much and God bless,

Sorry for being so quiet, it's been hectic at work (you're welcome to debug this mess if you want).

If you can figure out basic XML, look at the contents of the mod archive. The template changes are in their own XML file even. (I usually break things out this way, it's easier to maintain.)

Basic info is that you want to look at the lines in the CDATA section (between the [[ and ]], basically) because that is what is being changed. Search action is important. If it says "after" you want the changes before the search. If it says "before" that means you want the stuff after. If it says "replace", you replace.

If you can't figure it out, I'll put out the source and post a writeup as soon as I get the time.
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: johnathanamber on February 01, 2008, 05:46:45 PM
Motoko-chan,

Thank for the clear description. I attempted to do this update myself and it blew up in my face... boy amd I glad it was literally...

I will attempt again, however if you have the time, just in case it does 'blow-up' can you please post that changes?

Thanks a bunch, can't wait to use your mod.

God bless and thank you,
Johnathan
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on February 01, 2008, 07:21:50 PM
Just remember that the search position is the opposite of what you want to do with the code (except for replace and end). It might seem backward at first, but it makes sense if you think about it.

It will be done as soon as I can find time.

It was quietly updated for 2.0 beta 2, so you could try using the latest posted version and see if it installs with the version_emulate trick.

Just upgraded my boss' SMF from 1.1 RC2 to 1.1.5, then applied reCAPTCHA - everything looks good!

Thanks for the effort, Motoko-chan - the plain-language challenge words, plus audio challenge option, will make a big difference to the elderly visitors we serve.

Anyway to fix text colour on input box so the text will show up on black backgrounds

The Black Glass reCAPTCHA theme is made for display on dark pages, but if you want to use the default red theme, style the recaptcha_response_field id.

Examples:
Code: [Select]
/* White text on black background */
#recaptcha_response_field
{
  background-color: #000000;
  color: #ffffff
}

/* Black text on white background */
#recaptcha_response_field
{
  background-color: #ffffff;
  color: #000000
}

Are you using a custom template for the registration? What version of SMF?
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: Mo786 on June 29, 2008, 11:25:43 PM
SMF 1.1.5. I'm using a custom theme but it doesn't have its own register.template.php so it uses the default themes.

786Fighter, here is the file. It applied just fine manually, and there weren't changes from the search that I could see. The only possible thing I can think of is a change in line endings or spacing.

Remember to make a backup of the old file before putting this up.

It's a great thought, but I haven't had a chance to extend it yet. If so, it would depend on Visual Verification Options to be installed (for support on guest posts and searches in 1.1). If you don't mind a weaker test, use Visual Verification Options directly.

Since I'm haveing the same problems as 786Fighter, thought I would try the same attachment, but no luck :( Using a theme without its own Register template. It is using the defaults one.

Before I do another manual edit, a few questions:

Did the mod install cleanly, or did you get an error?
If it installed cleanly, have you properly configured the reCAPTCHA settings? (Public and Private keys, enabled it, etc)

Hello!
This is a great add-on, i have it installed also in my vbb forum, but i'm getting some problems with it in SMF, especially because of a translation...

I would like to konw how to operate in this case... i want to change manually the script to have it installed.

When i try to install the mod i have this situation
Code: [Select]
Type  Action         Description
1.   Do modify ./Sources/ManageRegistration.php                      Installation successfull
2.   Do modify ./Sources/Register.php                               Installation successfull
3.   Do modify ./Themes/default/Register.template.php         Installation successfull
4.   Do modify ./Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english.php       Installation successfull
5.   Do modify ./Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english-utf8.php File skipped
6.   Do modify ./Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english_british.php File skipped
7.   Do modify ./Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english_british-utf8.php     File skipped
8.   Extract file ./Sources/recaptchalib.php

So i presume the mod does not find my "english" files...
How cai i modify it to have it point to the right "italian" language files?

Thank you in advance

Post by: 青山 素子 on July 29, 2008, 10:47:53 AM
Copy the lines the modification added to Modifications.english.php to Modifications.italian.php (or whatever yours happens to be called) and that will work. You can edit those lines to be in Italian if you would like.

Motoko-chan - first off thanks for this mod. :) Very nice to use, and pretty simple to install.

However I'm getting the same problem as someone last page - reCaptcha shows as a black text on black field, and I can't figure out where to put your code from earlier:

The Black Glass reCAPTCHA theme is made for display on dark pages, but if you want to use the default red theme, style the recaptcha_response_field id.

Examples:
Code: [Select]
/* White text on black background */
#recaptcha_response_field
{
  background-color: #000000;
  color: #ffffff
}

/* Black text on white background */
#recaptcha_response_field
{
  background-color: #ffffff;
  color: #000000
}

Does this go in Register.template.php? On my WoW-themed board (uses the default Register.template.php, attached) it has the input field text black on black. If I highlight, text I type shows up.

I'll keep poking at it though. Thanks again for any help. :)

Motoko-chan am really very thank full to you.

Without any reasons i have got the registration verification image broke.

Hope i have installed some mod, which forced not to show the verification image.

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=271903.0

Then i have changed the admin settings to not shows recaptcha.

You know i got more than 20 - 25 invalid registrations within 1 hour.

The usual issue is that you inserted code or other space at the top of your file. This corrupts the image when it is displayed. If the problem site is the one in your profile, you have a blank line at the top that is likely causing the problem. For further support on the issue, please open a topic in our support board.

WOW! I seen another forum with this and wanted to know how they had a better CAPTCHA,

It isn't better, it is just different. The built-in image verification is very good, but some people have trouble with it due to server problems or readability issues. This mod offers an alternative.

Well I know it does the same thing but much better in different ways.

I have installed this and it works perfectly. I love when people bring up old posts. You find some amazing mods hidden deep within the pages  ;D

Thank you Ever So Much  :D

I know, but so many pages of mods i usually give up after several pages lol. Must say i am really happy with this mod, something i really wanted, obviously we already had one but this is much more up my street. I will never turn back to the original.

Hi
Thanks for the Mod
After installing "ARe you human" and "Anti-Bot-Puzzles"  which changed register.template.php
then I tried installing this mod and got test failed, so then I tried your manual edits and now:
Template Parse Error!
There was a problem loading the /Themes/default/Register.template.php template or language file. Please check the syntax and try again - remember, single quotes (') often have to be escaped with a slash (\). To see more specific error information from PHP, try accessing the file directly.

You may want to try to refresh this page or use the default theme.

Hi Motoko-chan!
Thanks for the mod, it was really helpful against spambots!
One question:
After installing the mode every day I found many errors in the forum error log, related to recaptcha mod.

Any comments?

Post by: Kolya on November 16, 2008, 05:00:06 PM
Those are most likely those cases where a bot (or a human) enters the wrong code. Visual Verification Options logs similar errors.
It's uselessly bloating up the error log but that's probably not this mod's fault but due to how verification is implemented in SMF.

Post by: 青山 素子 on November 16, 2008, 06:03:40 PM
TeaTephi, I can try and help you manually install in that file. Please attach a full copy.

Arturino, it is because it's checking a variable without checking the existence first. It's not a huge error (it's just a warning), but I'll see that it is fixed in a future release.

I have found that, the User Cp mod had made default captcha to broke because of some white spaces in the code.

Now i was using the old default captcha only. But sometimes, i fot the recaptcha error. Even though its not used.

Sometimes I enter the wrong letter here and there in the words and it STILL registers me.

If I enter words totally wrong it picks up on this but when I hit Back to re-enter the right text I get the message "Sorry, you're not allowed to register multiple accounts at the same time from the same computer." - so this SMF feature is making it hard for me test it, AND will not allow people to correct the words if they make a mistake.
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on November 20, 2008, 10:04:33 AM
If you read how reCAPTCHA works, you will realize why it lets you. The two words consist of a known word and an unknown word. You must get the known word correct or it will fail. The unknown word is quite unknown, so it won't know if you messed up. Once enough people agree on the unknown word it then goes into rotation as a known word. There is no way to tell which is which short of finding out by accident like you have.

The words shouldn't be corrected if you made a mistake, you'll get completely new words. It's the way that service works. For the multiple-registration part, report that in the main support board.

Hi all,

I installed reCaptcha and today in the error log I saw the following:

Quote
Undefined index: recaptcha_enabled
File: /home/content/html/sforum/Sources/Register.php
Line: 137

I then had a look through the files to see if I made any errors and I couldn't find any. The only mod I've installed is the SMF 1.1.7 security patch update and the Add IP2Location  to Track IP mod and no other.

I note that there is another person here having the same problem (page 2).

Can anyone shed some light on the issue?

Thanks and regards.

I got a problem with my forum theme, it's dark and the reCAPTCA input field is not set to a correct style and so you can't see what you type...

here is my site: http://www.wow-horizon.org/smf/index.php?action=register

another unrelated issue I noticed with GOOGLE Chrome: when you enter a wrong recaptcha and hit 'return' all the fields except for the passwords keep there values and it seems that the hidden challenge code field too... as a result you will never be able to type a matching code since it will be always compared to the first... unless you refresh the page. (I don't know if it's related to Chrom or to your implementation of reCAPTCHA)

Add the following style rule to your theme:

Code: [Select]
.recaptchatable input {
color: #ffffff;
}

Sounds like a Chrome bug to me. Try the test on their site (http://recaptcha.net/learnmore.html) and see if you get the same behavior.

in fact I had to add !important ('color: #fff !important;')  to the 'input' color stylesheet of my smf default theme, strange, I couldn't find what was setting the input text color to black...

Quote
Sounds like a Chrome bug to me. Try the test on their site and see if you get the same behavior.

nope it's working there but it's not the same since it's using dynamic script instead of a HTTP POST...

I've added this to register.template.php:

Code: [Select]
var RecaptchaOptions = {
theme : \'', empty($modSettings['recaptcha_theme']) ? 'clean' : $modSettings['recaptcha_theme'] , '\',
lang : \'fr\',
tabindex : \'', $context['tabindex'] , '\',
};

(I've added the lang and the tabindex entries,)
You should implement this and change 'fr' to the correct language depending on user settings :)

Make sure the key is correct. I recommend a direct copy/paste. Also, try requesting a new image after the first one loads and see if that helps.

I'm having a problem with the installation and I have not seen it discussed in the thread.   I'm pretty new to SMF, so it might be a simple fix.

When I installed reCAPTCHA, it said that it installed ok and when I spot checked the updates in the ManageRegistration.php, Register.php, etc., files, they seem to be correct.

The problem I'm having is that when I got to ADMIN > REGISTRATION > SETTINGS, the section where you enter your public/private keys, none of the form fields are labeled. (See attached photo.)

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freeimagehosting.net%2Fuploads%2Fed63411157.jpg&hash=65f8d572dd2a7b852139736646623738) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?ed63411157.jpg)

Also, I uninstalled reCAPTCHA and installed the "Anti-Spam Verification Questions" mod and got the same thing, just a bunch of form fields, but no labels. (See attached photo.)

I'm having the same problem as Zepia1, the reCAPTURE verification box is showing up on the registration screen but no matter how many times I try (I have tried at least 30 individual images) I recieve the error "The letters you typed don't match the letters that were shown in the picture.".

I installed the package (0.9.5.3) everything went smoothly and then manually added your code to register.template.php (as I am not using the defaut theme) and that too seemed to go smoothly.
I enabled reCAPTCHA in the registration settings and copy and pasted my Keys making sure there were no spaces at the beginning or end.

I have looked over it many times and cannot see why I keep getting these problems (I'm guessing either the default image verification check is still functioning or the server is responding with the wrong correct answers for reCAPTURE). Any help would be great!

Thanks

Nice mode, thanks.

Quick question: I've changed the box colour to "black glass" to suit my dark theme. Problem is it only shows the correct colouring in Firefox and Seamonkey. IE still shows the default yellow, red and white box.

Any ideas?

Oh, one more thing - I added your

.recaptchatable input {
color: #ffffff;
}

to my dark theme stylesheet and the text now shows up white in IE (with the default colours) but it's still black (invisible) on the darker black glass colouring in FF and seamonkey.

Any ideas?

Kev, I still have not found a resolution to my problem either.

your helping to digitise books.

When scanning book and trying to use OCR, it is very imperfect and makes tonnes of mistakes.
So reCaptcha are using humans to translate what the letters are, as a byproduct of passing a validation test.

?? that makes no sense at all, besides, the procedure will be so noisy, there will be tons of errors to sift through

unleashedmaniac, do you have more than one language you can select?

Nope, English is the only item in the select box.

when i changed my language to English or English-UTF8 this fixed my installation problem.  just fyi.

I had to chmod Settings.php to 777 - change the language then chmod Settings.php back to 755

hope this helps

I got the problem fixed.  I reverted back to the default template, the recaptcha settings where then visible.  Made the changes I needed, then reverted back to the custom template.  And everything worked.

Hi,
First of All, thanks for this mod, I think it's I need to front the always increasin number of spambotswhich are resistering to my forum. Unfortunately I haven't tried it yet because of an installation error in Register.template.php.
Maybe some ather MOD that I have already installed? But I don't think that the Mods That I have can affect the Register template.
there's my register template file, can you help me? thanks

OOK I found the bug... I had "custom profile field" mod with some fields shown in the registration... so they changed my register template... I went to search manually the "to be edited" parts of the template and I installed it!
Now I'm waiting to get a reCaptcha Key... the site seems to be too slow  ::)

Hello to all!
I've install this great plug-in.
It works fine in Firefox, Safari, Opera, Chrome browsers, but did not work in IE 6/7 ? :-[
Is it possible to resolve some how?
Thank you!

P.S. My forum's registration URL (http://forum.seat-club.kiev.ua/index.php?action=register)

Post by: krick on December 30, 2008, 02:56:38 PM
I'm having issues with my site's color scheme.  For some reason, the reCAPTCHA input box has black text and it's almost unreadable.  Is there something I can change in my CSS to fix this?

Also, on IE7, it ignores my choice of reCAPTCHA theme and always uses the red one.

EDIT:  one more thing...  My page doesn't validate cleanly...
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tankadin.com%2Findex.php%3Foption%3Dcom_smf%26Itemid%3D39%26action%3Dregister


My registration page...
http://www.tankadin.com/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=39&action=register

Here's what each reCAPTCHA theme looks like...

I figured out how to fix the edit box color.
You have to force it in the SMF theme style.css file...

Code: [Select]
#recaptcha_response_field
{
       background-color: white !important;
       color: black !important;
}

The other problems are still present...

1) IE7 not using chosen reCAPTCHA theme

2) html validation errors

EDIT: I've managed to fix some of the validation errors by editing Register.template.php, but I'm having trouble getting the last few without breaking the template parser.  I'll keep hacking on it.

Hi Motoko-chan,

I've installed and using reCaptcha with no errors whatsoever. However, I have a question.

It was brought about by krick's reCaptcha theme pics. Mine does not look like that. Infact it looks "normal". I've attached an image.

What should the reCaptcha theme look like after the mod is installed?

You need to "turn it on"...

Note that I probably should set the default SMF visual verification to "Disabled".  I didn't notice that until I made the screen shot.  That might have been the source of some of my html validation errors previously.

It would be nice if when you installed reCapcha, it replaced the default visual verification controls in the settings screen.  Or at least made it clear that it is a one-or-the-other situation so dummies like me don't mistakenly leave them both enabled.

You don't want to disable SMF's built-in, it will disable both, IIRC (i'd have to check to be 100% sure). In fact, you shouldn't have needed that table closing code. Are you using a modified or custom theme?

If you are using 1.1.x, just search ManageRegistration for 'recaptcha_enable' and change to 'recaptcha_enabled'.

I changed quite a bit for the 2.0 stuff, so I'd need to run a diff for that.

I've got the SMF default visual verification turned off and I just successfully registered a test user with no issues.  Just to be sure, I deliberately typed the visual verification words wrong the first time to make sure that it was actually using the reCaptcha...

I'm using a custom theme, but the only source files that are modified for my theme are:

In order to rule out any user error on my part, or conflicts with themes or other mods, I did a fresh SMF 1.1.7 installation, left the default theme, and only installed reCAPTCHAforSMF_0-9-5-4.tar.gz.

I did four tests, exercising every combination of captcha/reCAPTCHA verification, illustrated here...

Test 1 - no captcha
(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Ffiles.tankadin.com%2Frecaptcha_test1.gif&hash=6a974aedd087f6e79a20178241109125)

Test 2 - smf captcha
(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Ffiles.tankadin.com%2Frecaptcha_test2.gif&hash=77dbb52aa46de806dc44bc1db0324020)

Test 3 - reCAPTCHA
(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Ffiles.tankadin.com%2Frecaptcha_test3.gif&hash=99be91c1e625c1673cc8eedc328181a7)

Test 4 - smf captcha AND reCAPTCHA
(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Ffiles.tankadin.com%2Frecaptcha_test4.gif&hash=4481d837a0e052dab4b8d44ff06a547e)

HTML Validation Restults:
Test1 - no errors
Test2 - no errors
Test3 - 18 errors
Test4 - 18 errors

Here's the link to the registration page for test4:
http://testsmfrecaptcha.tankadin.com/smf/index.php?action=register

Here's the W3 Validator results for test4:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Ftestsmfrecaptcha.tankadin.com%2Fsmf%2Findex.php%3Faction%3Dregister

So, the only time when the html doesn't validate is when I've got the reCAPTCHA box checked.

I mentioned this earlier in this thread and it's the same issue that krick is having:

IE7 will NOT use the selected reCAPTCHA theme!

It defaults to the original with red, yellow and white.

My selected theme is Black Glass as I use a dark background theme and it suits it way more. Seamonkey & FF display the correct theme but I haven't had a chance to test Opera, Chrome or others. IE definitely doesn't want to comply!!!

Any ideas, or would this request be better sent to the reCAPTCHA team?

Try checking Modifications.English.php and see if the language strings are below the ?>. If they are, move them above that. Short of that, try switching to plain English from English-UTF8 (although the mod should handle that language).

First of all, Thanks for the quick reply.
I have looked into the file you mentioned, everything seems to be ok (all above ?>).

So then I've tried chaing the default language to English-UTF-8 and it seems to be working after that, but all my other mods will not display the caption and text.
So now I copy all the contents in Modification.English to Modification.English-utf-8 instead and every seems to be working perfectly.

I just don't know why it is so hard to install the mod on my board, I've been getting a lot of this problems before.

Thanks very much.

I found this mod to be one of the best add-ins for SMF. Great Job!

I am using the Custom Forms mod for a membership application form. As I allow unregistered guests to complete the form, I am beginning to be plagued with spambots. I am curious if reCaptcha can be added to my custom form? If so, how?

The best option would be to look at how it is added to the search code and template pages (as there were no checks on it in 1.1) and follow similarly for your custom form.

As soon as I have a chance to see what needs to be done. Try installing with the package manager faking that it is beta 4. If that works, then you are fine. If it doesn't work, you'll need to wait until I get a chance to update, or you go about that yourself.

When i return captcha to standart - its working....
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on February 18, 2009, 02:56:56 AM
Because of the way reCAPTCHA works (it's an external service), it requires that the fsockopen() function can be used to talk to the service. If your host has disabled the function, or your webserver cannot communicate with the reCAPTCHA API server (api.recaptcha.net), then you'll see that error.

Basically, you'll need to check with your host and find out if they have disabled fsockopen().


Edit: Thinking about it, if the host has disabled that function but somehow allows cURL functions (and has that module enabled - so, maybe a 0.0001% chance of that being the case), the calls could be rewritten with that in mind. However, that would require rewriting some parts of the recaptchalib.php file - likely not a minor edit.

there no 2.0 RC1 (only beta 4)
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF

Yes, it will work. In the package listing, follow the "Advanced" link and change the RC1 to "Beta 4".. You can then install without issues.

I'll have packages that will install directly up soon, but the method above has been tested and works fine.

I have only one comment about install script:

core.xml on line 70-72 searches for:

Code: [Select]
}

// Are there age restrictions in place?

in Register.template.php however i have installed  Anti-bot Registration Puzzles Mod which put itself between "}" and comment.


My question is: isn't it better to relay on some code before "}" ?


For example:

Code: [Select]
<a href="', $context['verificiation_image_href'], ';sound" onclick="return reqWin(this.href, 400, 120);">', $txt['visual_verification_sound'], '</a> | <a href="', $scripturl, '?action=register" onclick="refreshImages(); return false;">', $txt['visual_verification_request_new'], '</a>
That is the end of

"if ($context['use_graphic_library'])"

in register.template so if i understood mode properly this "}" should come at the end of that block ?


Sory for my bad english.

You will likely need to manually apply those changes. If you have a different modification that also alters registration, it is likely the exact edit point was changed just enough that the installer is confused.

This looks great thanks. But I'm having problems getting it working.

Using SMF v1.1.8

Package seems to have installed fine - showing in installed packages list.
But going to Admin>Registration>Settings, I can't see the recaptcha settings (screenshot attached)

Looking at my ManageRegistration.php file - the various reCaptcha lines are in there:
Code: [Select]
// Update the actual settings.
updateSettings(array(
'registration_method' => (int) $_POST['registration_method'],
'notify_new_registration' => isset($_POST['notify_new_registration']) ? 1 : 0,
'send_welcomeEmail' => isset($_POST['send_welcomeEmail']) ? 1 : 0,
'password_strength' => (int) $_POST['password_strength'],
'disable_visual_verification' => isset($_POST['visual_verification_type']) ? (int) $_POST['visual_verification_type'] : 0,

'recaptcha_enabled' => isset($_POST['recaptchaEnable']) ? 1 : 0,
'recaptcha_theme' => !empty($_POST['recaptchaTheme']) ? $_POST['recaptchaTheme'] : '',
'recaptcha_public_key' => !empty($_POST['recaptchaPublicKey']) ? $_POST['recaptchaPublicKey'] : '',
'recaptcha_private_key' => !empty($_POST['recaptchaPrivateKey']) ? $_POST['recaptchaPrivateKey'] : '',

'coppaPhone' => !empty($_POST['coppaPhone']) ? $_POST['coppaPhone'] : '',

FYI I have previously had the Custom Profile Field Mod installed, but I've (apparently) removed it - it is in my list of installed packages but with "Apply mod" next to it.

Any ideas much appreciated

Yeah, forget my last post, I wasn't thinking clearly :) I'm sure it's a simple edit required somewhere. I've had tons of these kinds of situations with various mods and always figure em out, but with something like registration you're better off with somebody more knowledgeable helping you out. If it were me I'd look at the manual install routine for some clues. The answer has to be there. This mod has a relatively simple install and is theme independent.

krick, I made the changes and I am still getting validation errors. One thing that I also noticed is that recaptcha is not showing up correctly if I use firefox. I want to use recaptcha but I'm going to have to disable it until I figure it out. I'm afraid I may make things worst if I keep playing around with this. This validator thing just opened up another can of worms for me since is not passing for the home page of my forum either.

This validator thing just opened up another can of worms for me since is not passing for the home page of my forum either.

The first thing is to make sure that your forum home page validates first.  Once that's good, try to fix the register page.

Looking at the validation page...

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fhairlossduel.com

The first thing I see is that you have <br> tags that are invalid for XHTML in the section where your google ad code is.  They need to be <br /> instead.  Sometimes, fixing the first bug or two will fix other that are caused by the first ones.  Check out your code for the ad block either in your main template, or whichever mod you're using.

Have you tried using this google ad mod?....

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=255

I don't have it installed at the moment since I uninstalled it for the 1.1.9 upgrade, but it works great (at least it did with 1.1.8) and doesn't have any validation problems.

Any possibility this is just an error which comes up if the person who is trying to register enters an incorrect answer? In the settings page, should I leave the SMF captcha enabled or disabled when the recaptcha is enabled? I think the mod does disabling so I can just leave it alone right?
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF

It looks like there are still some undefined indexes in the code. These are not bad in themselves, but I consider it to be messy. I'll do my best to make sure the latest code doesn't have any further undefined index issues. Likewise the other issues pointed out.


Also, sorry for my lack of presence in this topic. I'm currently having a really tough work schedule and can barely get the essential project management stuff for SMF done before sleeping at night. In fact, I'm only up now because of an emergency call because one of our European customers is having some issues (nothing like being woken up by the phone to roll back a broken code change the programmers had pushed to the server).

Just installed and configured 0-9-5-4b (provided public/private key and style), however, it looks like reCAPTCHA refuses to validate whatever input the users insert in the box.

Im using Beta4 and just had the same issue crop up undefined index recaptcha_challenge_field but there are no such entriews in the lang files.

I'm getting the same error in my error log. I don't believe I see any replies or answers to these 2 person's posts. What does this error mean?

By the way if I want to update from 0.9.5.4a to 0.9.5.4b, do I just run the latter or I've to uninstall 0.9.5.4a first?

I'm getting the same error in my error log. I don't believe I see any replies or answers to these 2 person's posts. What does this error mean?

It's due to not checking if the variable is set before looking at it. It's harmless, but I don't like seeing it either so I'll be hopefully fixing it in the next bugfix release.

Specifically, that value won't be set if the field in the reCAPTCHA box was left blank. This usually means a human didn't see it, a bot skipped it, or a bot is trying to submit form values directly to the registration form.


By the way if I want to update from 0.9.5.4a to 0.9.5.4b, do I just run the latter or I've to uninstall 0.9.5.4a first?

The only difference between the two is that the b release will install on 2.0 RC1-1 without the emulation string. No code was changed. If things are working, don't mess with it. Number changes indicate code changes so you only need to worry about those.

Yes, it is on SMF 2.0. With SMF 2.0, it takes the place of the built-in image verification.

This is not currently supported in SMF 1.1 because it would require adding additional capability beyond the scope of the modification. I was thinking of a special package that works along with Visual Verification Options, but have not had the motivation to write it.

What other modifications or changes have you done? I have tested on a clean 1.1.10 install (well, not clean - it had my other mods on it) for confirmation before I bumped compatibility on the mod page, and it installed cleanly.

The Country Flags modification is changing the code point that this modification is depending on. You'll probably want to make the single failed edit manually. You can find instructions by going to the mod download page and choosing to view the manual installation instructions.

Motoko-chan, just wanted to thank you for this great addition to standard ("cracked") captcha...
Now, why don't you point guys by reCAPTCHA.net to list your Mod under "Plugins" in http://recaptcha.net/resources.html - it surely would also promote SMF to the world...  ;)


P.S. One functional suggestion: As described here http://wiki.recaptcha.net/index.php/I18n it would be good to add a custom translated string for the text in reCAPTCHA window... I did the dirty one only by changing:
Code: [Select]
if ($context['use_recaptcha'])
{
echo '
<script type="text/javascript">
var RecaptchaOptions = {
theme : \'', empty($modSettings['recaptcha_theme']) ? 'clean' : $modSettings['recaptcha_theme'] , '\',
};
</script>

with

Code: [Select]
if ($context['use_recaptcha'])
{
echo '<script type="text/javascript">
var RecaptchaOptions = { 
theme : \'', empty($modSettings['recaptcha_theme']) ? 'clean' : $modSettings['recaptcha_theme'] , '\',
custom_translations : { instructions_visual : "Here is my new text:"}
};

I've contacted the folks running reCAPTCHA four times about this, and they still haven't done anything. I've kinda given up.

Probably. I'll look into it. I know it's noisy, but it's not a huge concern, it should only happen when the reCAPTCHA box isn't filled in. That would mean a failed registration attempt by a bot.

only if i mark the typed text it is white (and readable)

Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF

It's because of the stylesheet reCAPTCHA itself uses. If you read back in this topic, you'll find the solution for that particular issue.

One of those modifications likely modified the registration page. You can force install, but you then need to make the changes manually to that one file.

thanks for this. I use to use phpbb and I was hacked, so I appreciate all of the active participation and support by everyone who uses SMF, regardless of what our sites are about. Now if I could just figure out how to set up my server securely so I can allow folks to upload avatars and attachments without worrying about hacker attacks. I also run wordpress blogs on my server.

Can't help on WordPress (update to 2.8.4 if you haven't already) security, but just a quick off-topic response to your question.

For uploads and avatars, the safest thing is to move your attachments directory outside your web root. SMF can still read and display the files, but nobody can access them directly. This does trade off a little speed and load (SMF has to do all the file displaying) for security.

Also see our online manual, specifically the section: How do I make my forum safer against hacker attacks? (http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=463)

Title: Need Help with Code
Post by: MaryLouW on September 16, 2009, 12:08:10 AM
I hope I'm posting this in the right place.  Earlier this week, I had to move my forum from one host to another because my original host closed its doors. In doing so, I decided to register a domain name for my forum rather than having it as a folder on my site.  It seemed all was going well until someone tried to register but could not. Apparently, the matched keys are for my original site.  This is the message I get:

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwwell.net%2Ftemp%2Fimg-6.gif&hash=d32d87adcd81a79e386cc5d76a815c4e)

So, I thought maybe I could just uninstall the reCAPTCHA and worry about it later.  When I attempted to uninstall, I got the following messages:

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwwell.net%2Ftemp%2Fimg-5.gif&hash=1b134dbcb7f5a37c412a649b2c34f006)

So, my question is, how do I fix this?  Is the site name somewhere embedded in the code where I can change it?  I am at a loss and am unhappy because I cannot have any new members until this is solved.

Can someone please help?

MaryLouW, you don't need to touch the modification, just go to recaptcha.net, sign in, and add a site. You'll get a new set to keys to replace the ones you entered for the old domain.

plusev, not sure what I can do to help, it's a CSS issue with your theme. You can try adding the "!important" modifier to the rules and see if that helps.

Is there a manual update I could do... I had to install this manually and would like the errors I get to stop.. So maybe just an idea of what was changed would work out for me...

If you are using 1.1.x, just search ManageRegistration for 'recaptcha_enable' and change to 'recaptcha_enabled'.

I changed quite a bit for the 2.0 stuff, so I'd need to run a diff for that.

So sorry I missed this.... Worked perfectly...

If you are using the SMF 2.0 code, it will replace everywhere the standard image verification will go. If on 1.1, it will only replace on the registration verification image (the only place in 1.1 that has it).

I use SMF 1.1 and i want to have the reCAPTCHA system for sending pm's and guest posting.

I have found this code for pm's but it doesn't work, recaptcha is showing up but when i solve the captcha and click send, it takes me back to my message without any errors and replaces recaptcha with the regular smf captcha. The message isnt sent at all.

I have a small issue with this mod.

It appears you don't have to be 100% accurate when entering in the verification letters.

It showed me : humble sharp

I entered in : humble shape

And it accepted it as the right words and continued with registration. Is this normal?

Yes, it can be. Likely, humble was the test word. For more, read up on how the ReCaptcha system works.

Hi,

I've got a somewhat related question about using reCaptcha on SMF forums, but instead of on the Registration page, the reCaptcha to only show up for Guest posting. I've been working with the reCaptcha trying to properly incorporate it into the post page, but running into some road blocks.

Apologies for cross-thread posting, but its probably easier than copy pasting all of my toying with this idea...

This functionality exists in SMF 2.0. This modification only replaces the default SMF Image Verification where it displays by default. Since IV isn't in the post or search forms in the 1.1 code, this modification won't show up there.

If you are using the SMF 1.1 branch, look at Visual Verification Options (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=734), which integrates the default SMF Image Verification into guest posts and searches. I have thought about a modification that will extend that to support this mod, but haven't had the time.

I'm in a bit of a busy period right now, but I do plan to update things as soon as I can.

There is a chance it might work if you emulate versions as it doesn't change any template files in 2.0.

Well, I don't see the version emulator in my packages section anymore. If I were to manually install this, it could possible work? I haven't looked at what files it changes.

I'll check that out and see what happens.

Kratos
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: king kratos on November 11, 2009, 03:28:39 AM
I got it set up and it works great! Here are some changes that need to be made to the package to make the package manager work properly:
First: The third line of this code does not exist in RC2 so, just remove the third line and it will work.
./Sources/ManageSettings.php
Code: [Select]
// Clever Thomas, who is looking sheepy now? Not I, the mighty sword swinger did say. array('title', 'setup_verification_questions'), array('title', 'setup_verification_questions_desc', 'class' => 'windowbg'),
Remove third line to look like this:
Code: [Select]
// Clever Thomas, who is looking sheepy now? Not I, the mighty sword swinger did say. array('title', 'setup_verification_questions'),

Second: This line has additional code added to it, so the second code I post for this is what needs to be used.
./Themes/default/GenericControls.template.php
Code: [Select]
<input type="text" name="', $verify_id, '_vv[code]" value="', !empty($verify_context['text_value']) ? $verify_context['text_value'] : '', '" size="30" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" /> </div>';
This is what needs to be used to find the correct spot to place the correct code:
Code: [Select]
<input type="text" name="', $verify_id, '_vv[code]" value="', !empty($verify_context['text_value']) ? $verify_context['text_value'] : '', '" size="30" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" class="input_text" />
</div>';

Everything else worked properly for the "find" and "replace/add before/add after". The only thing that is not working properly is the alignment of the reCaptcha box on all pages except the custom form mod. It is aligned left instead of centered. It shows up centered on the custom form mod. I have attached three screen shots to show you this. The first is on the registration page, and the second is on the custom form mod (for guests), and the third is on the search page (for guests).

If you could give me some pointers about the alignment of the box, I would be very appreciative. I have looked, but just cannot seem to figure it out.

Thank you,
Kratos

To match the centered verification image, add the following at the end of css/index.css:

Code: [Select]
/* Make the reCAPTCHA dialog centered to match the positioning of the built-in verification */
.centertext #recaptcha_table
{
margin: 0 auto !important;
}

Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on November 15, 2009, 01:04:18 AM
There are Indian (the country) shops where low-paid workers crack these things (full API for spambots to use), so it's not perfect protection. If you are a small site, you are probably under the radar, but higher-profile sites are still in danger. When one can buy several thousand completely accurate solutions for a few dollars, it's really economical to bypass this type of hurdle.

reCAPTCHA will probably never be in by default because it is an external service. The developers try to keep SMF from depending on outside services, something I agree with.

reCAPTCHA doesn't support Italian currently. You'd need to do a whole custom reCAPTCHA theme to add your own language strings.

You can't put any lines in the image, it's served from an external service.

Read sections "Look & Feel Customization" and "Custom Theming".

but it is also possible that I put only Italian words?

Languages other than what the service supports must use a custom theme. All reCAPTCHA challenge words will be English or used in an English-language book.

Folks, the reCaptcha mod is no longer a deterrent to the spambot...

It's not just SMF it's cracked, I'm seeing it on every forum package (phpBB, vBulletin, Invision, etc.)  I looked at a double-handful of Google results for the 'bot post, and nearly all of them had reCaptcha, only a few had the forum's default captcha.

Indeed, it's not as effective as it used to be. There are actual companies in India with real humans that offer "text processing" services which are really just CAPTCHA-breaking operations. They provide an API for software to use, and charge a few dollars per thousand correct answers. Check out the article Inside India's CAPTCHA solving economy (http://blogs.zdnet.com/security/?p=1835).

I highly recommend using SMF 2.0's question/answer system, or the backport of this feature, Anti-Spam Verification Questions (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1516). Yes, that does work with 1.1.10. With this solution, you get a fully custom system that will stop all automated attacks and slow down humans.
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: dr.wills on November 20, 2009, 05:41:14 PM
What I recommend is that, you have to use recaptcha in combination with several question in your forum language, for example

bot can't solve recaptcha that easily
real human Indian just can't read my language.

You will be quite safe

In the latest release, it should be centered in all instances where it makes sense. If you find a page where it should behave different, please post which page it is.

In 2.0 at least, you can use the security questions in addition to this. I'm not sure about the backported feature for 1.1.

How that problem can be fixed would you be so kind to explain.

You'll need to talk to your host about this. It means that the server your site is on cannot talk to the reCAPTCHA service to verify the entry.

Talked to them now, and they said this:
"You have to allow connections the IP address of the host to which is trying to connect the module reCAPTCHA. You can do this from the Outgoing Connections Manager section in the Control Panel. Everything should be fine then."

And now I dont know to what IP is trying to connect and stuff ... :S

Thanks for such fast answer.

I've seen this happen on occasion, it seems to be a disconnect with the remote service. Ensure both of your keys are entered correctly, there should be no spaces at the end (this is common if you copy/pasted the keys from the reCAPTCHA website).

Beyond that, I haven't been able to reproduce the issue consistently, and haven't seen it happen on anything I manage in quite some time.

My forum is having issues with PM spam. I was really hopeful this mod might also integrate with the "Post count under which users must enter code when sending personal messages" option in Basic Features, but sadly not.

Has anyone done this, or are there plans to add this to the mod in the future?

I am using 2.0, and I have turned on security questions, but they don't come up when I use recaptcha.

This for me too. I guess I will temporarily go back to using SMF's captcha along with the security question. I cannot see an easy way to make them both show up.

Hi, I'm having problems getting this installed. The only thing I'm getting in the options area are a check box and text boxes. A couple pages back a guy said he was getting the same thing, and cleared the cache to fix it, but I wasn't running a cache before, and after turning it on, I can't turn it back off. Any ideas how to fix this?

Please see this image for what I'm seeing:

FYI: reCAPTCHA stopped the spam bots for about a year. But since late 2009 they have now figured out a way to bypass this mod.

I got 5 new fake registrations per day until I installed Anti-Bot Registration Puzzles in tandem.

Post by: GJSchaller on February 27, 2010, 10:44:31 AM
Hello,

I'm running SMF 1.1.11 connected to a Joomla install using JFusion.  My Joomla site has a form plugin that uses reCAPTCHA for spam prevention, and it works well (I have the keys already, and haven't had any spam submissions since I installed it).

I was able to install this mod in my SMF, and it appeared normally on the Registration page.  However, it looks like when it was calling the reCAPTCHA APIs, it was conflicting with the API calls made by the Joomla plugin earlier on the page.  I tried commenting out a majority of the calls, and it then stopped giving the PHP errors, but at that point, no matter what I put in the reCAPTCHA field, SMF would insist that the letters didn't match.

I realize this may be a lost cause due to the Joomla integration, but am hoping there's a way to modify the API calls to work with the plugin that is also using it.  Motoko-sensei, I'd be willing to let you take a peek at the code on my site if you would like.
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on February 27, 2010, 01:41:54 PM
Sorry, but I really don't have the time to support multi-integration like you are using. My best guess is that if you are wrapping the forum, the form input is being overridden by the implementation on the Joomla! side. The form input values can't be easily changed since they are being generated by the reCPATHCA service itself.
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: GJSchaller on February 27, 2010, 02:37:30 PM
No worries - that's enough of a hint that I can talk to the author of the plugin, and see if they can update it.  Thank you!

It replaces the image verification where SMF displays it. For 1.1, this is registration only. For 2.0, it is also in the other areas that the image verification shows, including guest posts and new posters - if you are using that feature.

Excellent, sounds perfect. :)

I've hit a snag trying to install it with my custom theme, though.  When I try to pull up the parsing instructions for 2.0 RC 2 it says it's not supported for that version.  And, when I try to use the RC3 instructions for index.css edits (the only ones I need to make), I'm directed to "?> at the end of the file" but there's no ?> there. 

Help, please? :)
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on March 14, 2010, 06:27:05 PM
Stick the CSS changes at the end of the file. The mod parser displays it as looking for a ?> at the end of the file, but it doesn't actually do that for CSS files.

Post by: Greymalkin on March 14, 2010, 08:04:35 PM
Okay, it's installed.  Unfortunately, no image is appearing (just a question mark in a little blue box).  My theme doesn't have a GenericControls.template file.  Should I copy the one from the default theme, and will that fix the problem?

EDIT:  duh.  Helps if I turn it on.  Nevermind and thanks. :)

Sooo.... I started to install the new version, and my board told me there was no uninstall for the old one. I cracked out the editor and did my best to revert the changes manually.  Then it wouldn't install the new version, so I go back and follow the manual installation instructions.

I have 2 issues now. One is no biggie, the "Use reCaptcha" text next to the selection box to enable it is missing. The selection box is there and works.

The bigger issue, which I confess I never tried before today, is that if I try to register, and try the spoken text, it never seems to match the written text.

Thanks for any help.

There haven't been any major changes for 1.1 in the newest versions. If you're running a very old version, the uninstall won't work unless you emulate an older SMF version.

The text should be in the language files, unless you are using a language not translated yet.

That is correct. The spoken words will be different from the written words.

What's the advantage of this?

Dunno what the advantage is for SMF, however I checked out the reCaptcha website and got the PHP code.

I have a number of html forms on my sites to obtain user input and suggestions, and frankly was getting tired of the spam replies that were flooding in.

I implemented the reCaptcha stuff, and was able to come up with a single php file that.
1. Gathers the input
2. Validates the input
3. Uses reCaptcha to prevent the spam bots from filling in the blanks
4. Sends multiple emails with the contents of the user input
5. Sends the user a thank you email

Pretty slick, and the number of spam submission has gone to zero

Assuming you are using 1.1 series. If you are using 2.0, then please let me know.

Just an FYI, the spammers have gotten around the reCAPTCHA like 6 months ago. Its obvious they are using automated tools to do all the registration work, and a human to solve the CAPTCHA as the last step.

I think something needs to be done to reCAPTCHA to slow them down and make it not worth their time . . . like a 10 second timer that counts down before letters are displayed or something.

I think you'd have to take that up with Google, to be honest, as the new owners of reCAPTCHA.

Fact remains that Google now own reCAPTCHA and it's not in their interest to have too much spam on it because they're the ones who have to cope with the load.

So I have a huge amount of what appears to be bots registering accounts on my forums.  The almost never post anything, just leave links in their signatures (which I've blocked).  But I'd like to block the registrations in the first place, so I tried using this mod.  However, it seems that you can still request the old captcha and respond resulting in a successful registration, bypassing the mod (and if you try to disable the regular verification, it disables the mod as well).  Can the mod disable the built-in system?

Hm, that shouldn't be possible. If reCAPTCHA is enabled, it should check for it and error out if it doesn't match. What version of SMF is this? Did you have to do any manual installation?

SMF 2.0RC3 (PostgreSQL).  I just did the automatic installation, and it appears to be working fine at the surface.  However, I was still getting spambot registrations, so I checked the request logs, and the normal captcha was still being requested and answered.

That error means that it can't connect to the external service. Either your web host is blocking the connection on purpose, blocking it accidentally, the connection between your server and the reCAPTCHA server is flaky, or the reCAPTCHA server is having issues.

Actually, kinda.

The reCAPTCHA system relies on a known and unknown word. You don't know which is which. You must get the known word correct. You can type the wrong thing for the unknown word and it will still pass you. In your case, you probably made the typo on the unknown word.

How can I disable reCAPTCHA on certain themes and have the smf default??

In simple Portal you can do:

$no_portal_themes = array(16);
if (in_array($settings['theme_id'], $no_portal_themes))
$blocks = array_merge(getBlockInfo(2, null, true, true), $blocks = getBlockInfo(3, null, true, true));
else
$blocks = getBlockInfo(null, null, true, true);

The theme with the id 16 wouldn't get the portal.

Thanks!

It would require custom code. For SMF 2.0, reCAPTCHA replaces the normal image verification if you enable it and it's part of the global anti-spam settings.

Based on a quick search, it's an issue with IE and going "back" to pages that were created based on form input, specifically post variables. I am not sure why it would show this on the main SMF registration page and it is just a direct static page.


Also,   on the registration page with the recaptcha,  I get a page error, see attached photo.    When I don't use recaptcha, this error isn't there.   Any ideas on how to fix?  bug?

Possibly an issue with some changes on the reCAPTCHA side of things. They provide javascript code that is parsed to create the widget. I'm not sure if that is anything I can fix.

Hello, I'm using your mod on SMF 2.0 RC3 and on of my users pointed out that guests cannot search as they get stuck in an endless loop. The error message printed is "Please enter the verification code below to continue to the results." no matter what is put into the field, correct or not. The search works properly for guests when I use the default captcha. Any fix or workaround would be great. Thanks.

Eventually. Given it was released today and I work full time and am currently dealing with some big real-life family issues (and have been for the past three months, and probably will for at least the next six), it's not going to happen tonight.

I'll get to it as soon as I have time. If there weren't major changes in the areas this modification uses, you can probably just emulate RC3 to install. Do not install if the tests fail.

i would like to inform the mod author that reCAPTCHA verification fails when this mod is used in conjunction with Anti-Bot Registration Puzzles. :(

i.e.
when a user enters the wrong reCAPTCHA code in the 1st attempt, a redirect is being made to the registration page.

but the user is able to continue with registration in the 2nd & further attempts even with wrong reCAPTCHA code (provided the user had entered the correct answer to the challenge in the Anti-Bot Registration Puzzles).

I have attached a copy of the file for review...
Is there any paid support available?
Thanks
Will

When I am trying to apply this mod it Fails on:

./Themes/default/Register.template.php    Test failed

Any idea why would that be?

Also I am using a different language on it if that makes any difference.

i would like to inform the mod author that reCAPTCHA verification fails when this mod is used in conjunction with Anti-Bot Registration Puzzles. :(

i.e.
when a user enters the wrong reCAPTCHA code in the 1st attempt, a redirect is being made to the registration page.

but the user is able to continue with registration in the 2nd & further attempts even with wrong reCAPTCHA code (provided the user had entered the correct answer to the challenge in the Anti-Bot Registration Puzzles).
青山 素子, any luck with this?

Would someone be so kind to give me IPs which one must be set on hosting as allowed for outgoing connection (the ones that recaptcha uses).

I now recive an "could not open socket" message, so after reading this forum means for me that I must allow some IPs in outgoing manager on my hosting.

Can someone please help with these ips?

Thank you very much.

Server issue. The host needs to allow outbound connections to external HTTP servers.

You'll have to open a lot of IPs. The reCAPTCHA process needs to contact www.google.com for API access. The older API might use a different host. You can check the top of recaptchalib.php for the URLs that the server needs to contact.


Note: This is why SMF doesn't have this service built in. People would blame SMF for issues with hosts blocking access.

Where does the error appear. I installed the mod, it seems to work on test accounts. I did have one account sign on, but I have noted several registering for account messages but they never completed the process. Either they were bots that failed or the recaptia version was blocked. Is there a log on my server that would give a clue if the process is working or failing due to some process. Was the error message sent by a user who could not log onto the forum.

My forum is just starting out so I am not yet submerged by bots, but I do not want to discourage real posters.

The "cannot open socket" error message would display where the reCAPTCHA box would normally be. You can do a simple test by enabling it for registration and then logging out. Once logged out, go to the registration page. If you see the box, then that error isn't a concern for you.

Please note that as reCAPTCHA is an external service, it may be subject to some downtime. I personally haven't seen any (the current owner, Google, keeps very good uptime), but it is something to be aware of.

I highly encourage you to use the registration questions along with this modification. Many automated tools are now using humans to solve things like reCAPTCHA. The registration questions feature is built-in for the 2.0 series and available as a modification for the 1.1 series.

Thank you, I am aware that the user logging in would see that message. I have tried using several dummy accounts and have never seen the message. I was wondering if there was an error log on the server like the adm error section or if the error log would show up on deeper logs on my server.

What I am trying to explain is what I see while watching who is online. I see the message registering for an account, but then no new person shows up. This is not happening when I try to log in myself, it is only something I report seeing while snooping on what is happening on my site's early progress. My guess is that these are people that just decide not to register or robots. Today I turned off the reCaptcha and was still seeing the same phenomena. So it is either a robot or someone not wanting to finish the process of creating an account.

I was still looking for a method of proving my theory and if an error log existed that I could look at, it would add security in my analysis.

Hey there - firstly thanks for the superb package.

I am having an issue with new registrations, after filling in the forum and reCaptcha details, the new user clicks next and gets:

Error has Occured
You Do not have permission to access this page.

Any ideas? I have deactivated reCaptcha for the moment and all registrations work perfectly?

Using RC4 with no other registration packages, and no special welcome screen...

Many thanks in advance for your assistance! Would be very greatful if anyone could help.

Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: Arantor on January 09, 2011, 10:38:55 AM
Nope, it's entirely set by ReCAPTCHA, and in any case the bots that can solve ReCAPTCHA either farm the image out to CAPTCHA-solving farms (where folks are paid $1 per 1000 solved, for example) or they use the audio which is substantially easier to solve programmatically.

As IncognitoMuse mentioned, the complexity is defined by the service provider for reCAPTCHA. I highly advise using this in combination with the registration questions feature of SMF 2, or the backported modification that allows the same feature for SMF 1.1.

Well, ArantorCaptcha prevented me from getting more than 3 spam posts in total on arantor.org, but that's in no small part due to the fact that it presents 10 different styles of CAPTCHA including several animated kinds (and the spammer was a human spammer making 3 posts). It is, naturally, discontinued since arantormods.com was closed, and I don't even have the code for the mod on my computer now (it is installed on arantor.org though so I still have it, I guess)

Old news. Automated attempts have given way to human-based attempts anyway. The most common forum spamming tool integrates an API to a human-backed service that solves image verification puzzles from multiple sources.The best defense is to use some unique system that prevents mass automated attempts from working.

Already done. If the folks aren't smart enough to use version emulation, they aren't smart enough to diagnose problems when things go wrong.


/me waits fo Motoko to update the package-info.xml.

There are a few pending bugs I would like to investigate. There is at least one report that this modification breaks the built-in verification questions in 2.0, which needs to be checked.

I got my development environment cleaned up this last weekend, so I can hopefully find time this week or on the weekend to go over things and verify functionality.

I might move reCAPTCHA to be an additional solution in 2.0 instead of replacing the built-in verification, but that will likely not be in the next release.

Old news. Also, it isn't cracked so much as worked-around. The most popular forum spamming software integrates a service called CaptchaBot, which uses humans to solve CAPTCHAs. (http://krebsonsecurity.com/2010/11/captchabot-blurring-human-and-machine/) (The link goes to a security blog that talks about the service.) When a spammer can spend $10 and get access to 10,000 forums, you're going to have trouble.

The best defense is to be unique in your security approach and use defense-in-depth. Being unique will keep the majority of automated attempts from working, while focusing on in-depth measures will stop those that get through and the completely-human spammers.

This modification is just one part of the puzzle and is not the full solution.

Heya!

Also having issues with SMF 1.11.

The install seems to occur fine -- but I also had an empty Modifications.english.php file.

Still, I dumped the necessary code into that file... and still nothing appearing in Admin > Registration > Settings

Not seeing any errors, either :(
I am on 1.1.12 and am having the same issue.  I am using a custom theme, one that I created myself (copied the default theme to a new directory and then modified it).  I tried the auto install but nothing showed up in the Registration->Settings screen at all.  I then went through and manually installed everything, which resulted in a check box, a drop down, and two text lines showing up in the Registration->Settings screen.  I checked all of the instructions on the manual install, double checked that I had modified all of the PHP files correctly, and nothing I've done seems to make the text show up.

I did manage a partial workaround.  By switching to the default theme, activating the reCaptcha mod, inputting the keys, and saving everything, then switching back to my custom theme, I was able to get the proper text to show up in the Registration->Settings screen.  However when I switch back to my custom theme the text all disappears again.  The mod seemed to be working (the reCaptcha box shows up on the registration screen), but when I tried to register a new member I kept getting back the error that "The letters typed did not match those shown".  I tried to register an account using both the custom theme and the default theme, but I still get the same error.

Any thoughts? 

Having said all that, i still love the mod and am hoping that I can get it working.  Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

Thanks!!

Post by: 青山 素子 on January 12, 2011, 10:36:33 PM
If you are customizing the default theme, do not copy the whole theme directory. It will break language strings and many other things. Copy only the template files you will be changing along with all the CSS and images.

What you did was broke the installation of the modification. It requires changes both in the templates and in the source files. While changes were made in the source files, the important changes in the templates were not made in your custom theme. You will need to make these changes manually, or clean up your custom theme so it uses the default templates where you have not made changes.

I haven't tried a RC3 emulation yet, just going through the mods that I have.

As cool as reCAPTCHA is, I eventually abandoned it because it wasn't stopping the spammers anymore as they're using humans to crack the images instead of bots.

I'm running SMF 1.1.13 with the Anti-Spam Verification Questions for SMF (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1516) mod and if you come up with a good question, it will stop most of the forum spam.  I only get one or two spammer registrations a month now.  The only protection from spammers I'm using is the built-in SMF image verification (set on medium complexity) and the Verification question mod.

The the hardest part is coming up with a question that your forum's target audience will know, but drive-by spammers will not.  Though, if you want to really use complex questions, you probably need to put some sort of contact email on your registration page for people who get stuck and can't figure out the answer.

Agreed. I no longer recommend it as the sole protection against spammers.

Custom question/answers work really well if done right. I currently recommend using reCAPTCHA plus question/answer and backing that up with the httpbl modification. I've only had one "false" positive on httpbl, which was from a user in South America who inherited a fairly busy spamming IP such that the score was above the "human check" cutoff.

We are using recaptcha in our board and since the update to RC5 the recaptcha always rejects registrations (after the update, there was no registration anymore, and I also tried to register myself once again - without success)

It is the following board:

Are there any known problems with recaptcha and rc5?

Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on March 05, 2011, 08:12:48 PM
Sometimes that happens. I believe it's related to the item fetched twice, but not updating the display. It seems to be more problematic when other things are added to the registration screen.

Given that reCAPTCHA is nowhere near as effective as it was when this was originally written (due to real humans solving the things), you can remove it without too much change in your situation. I recommend using the question/answer registration modification at a bare minimum.
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF

Sorry, I've been very busy of late between ongoing personal issues and work. I have not had time to look over the posts on this topic. Also, bumping doesn't help much since the standard support team doesn't keep these on their radar, it just ******s up the topic and makes it more difficult to respond. Heck, I'm less liable to help since it shows an intense disrespect for something I have tried to do on my free time.

Actually, you know what? I'm at work, have five projects with hard deadlines fast approaching, and am not in the mood to respond to requests from disrespectful folks. If I get a chance later I might respond.

Unless you made special changes to that page, you really shouldn't have it in your custom theme. It makes it much harder for modifications that way.

"Password incorrect - <span class="remove">their username</span>"

Where are you seeing the error? If they are using the wrong password, they probably should get that...

reCAPTCHA is being bypassed by spam programs using the services of companies like Captcha*** (sorry, not going to give them free advertising). These services use real humans to solve the puzzles.

I recommend using custom question/answer solutions currently along with services like Project Honeybot's HTTPbl (there is an SMF mod for this service).

I've been using it on all my forums and some potential registrants can't register no matter how many times they try while others can without a problem. this has happened often enough now that I've had to disable this addon and resort to the default captcha with questions.

I find bug for this mod on SMF 2.0RC5:

If you install this mod on 2.0 RC5 with emulate will install ok without problems.

BUT:

1. First bug: If you use recaptcha for new members to be required at first 5 posts and member type wrong a letter will receive the msg: "The letters you typed don't match the letters that were shown in the picture" and give you: Back button link...till here is ok but after you type the back button and type correctly the new recaptcha code(i try with refresh code too) will receive always this error:
Code: [Select]
You already submitted this post! You might have accidentally double clicked or tried to refresh the page.
Doesn't matter you refresh the code or try the new code added by recaptcha -> the same error!
If you type correctly from first time the letters -> member can post.

If member will get this error with: " You already submitted this post! You might have accidentally double clicked or tried to refresh the page.  " after that if try to make new post on other forum area have no chance until he logout/login again, will get this error always: You can't access this section when he push the post button!

2. Second bug: If as Admin you unchecked the box: smf default captcha -> because you check the recaptcha! the recaptcha will not appear on search/register/etc and guest/members will get always the error letters.(so recaptcha work anly if smf captcha is checked too.)

I test on my forum test and in my forum too!

That's not good. I used the clean one and it seems to work fine. Seems maybe he forgot to update something on the others as far as an HTML tag or two goes. Are you using the default theme or a custom one?

The "a" isn't "alpha", it's just a revision on 0.9.8. The only change was the stated version compatibility, so the version number wasn't bumped.

on registration page captcha get aligned to left rather than center when i chose theme other than clean

Some of this can't be controlled as the themes are built into the reCAPTCHA service. I'll make a note and look into if it's possible to remove forced alignment for future updates.

Hey,

The URL (http://recaptcha.net/api/getkey?app=recaptcha_for_smf) that the mod links to returns a 404 message.

It is easy enough to signup for the keys from the main recaptcha website, but not everyone may know about that.

Hum, hi there.
The link that sends me to get the key is broken.
The page shows me 'Not found" , "Error 404".
How to get that key ?

You will want to go to a new URL to get your key. The old one no longer forwards. This has been noted as a bug and will be fixed as soon as time permits.

The new URL is https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/create

Not a critical issue, just an undefined index. I thought I cleaned all those out previously, but it looks like at least one slipped through. It won't hurt anything other than take up space in the error log.

The 1.1 series has been wildcarded, so 0.9.8 will work just fine as well. The only change between 0.9.8 and 0.9.8a was testing and addition of the 2.0 release version so one wouldn't need to use version emulation.

Did you make sure to put in the keys and enable it?


Why after changing the color, recaptcha escape to the left?

Because the reCAPTCHA code provided by the service left-aligns the other styles. There is information on how to override that earlier in this topic.

You'll probably need to install something like mod_cloudflare (http://www.cloudflare.com/wiki/Log_Files) on the server to get the proper IP in the proper place. If you're using shared hosting, you will not be able to do this.

ok you are using SMF 2x, and I don't know if it's fixed there already but it could be an IPv6 issue
since I've got the same problem with SMF 1x when using IPv6 to connect.

Fix for SMF 1x would be to change the reCAPTCHA for SMF so it replaces the non-existing IP with '127.0.0.1' instead of printing "For security reasons, you must pass the remote ip to reCAPTCHA"
Fix for SMF 2x would be to add IPv6 Support... eg. with this: "IPv6 support" http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=3051 (didn't tested since I use SMF 1x, but it sounds good)

use my attached reCAPTCHA with caution, u should try the original one first and/or try to find a mod to add IPv6 support to SMF. The attached should be only used to fix IPv6 issues with the reCAPTCHA modification on SMF.

They do. There are human services that the bots now use to solve CAPTCHAs. It's been this way for several years now. Use a combination of methods such as including registration questions.

I have had a couple of folks trying to join our forums report problems with the CAPTCHA, specifically, the area is blank except for the text "Input error: Invalid referer" in it.

I have had no trouble so far creating a new user, and we are getting other registrations successfully.

Can you point me in a direction to look?

Post by: 青山 素子 on July 20, 2011, 04:03:26 PM
This error occurs when you are using valid keys, but they don't match the domain the form is on.

First, double-check that the keys you are using are correct for that domain.

If they are correct, then do you have multiple domains pointed at the same site? If so, it could be posting from the other domain. If not, make sure you didn't generate the keys for "www.domain" and instead used just "domain". If you generated keys for "www.domain", they will only work with the www prefix, and if the form is being sent from the site without that prefix, you'll get that error.
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: wlchase on July 21, 2011, 04:58:28 PM
Thanks! That's probably it. We changed out domain name a few months ago, and some folks likely have come to us from an old reference.

That is very odd as this modification does not change anything with that process.

If you want to disable the modification manually, you'll need to set "recaptcha_enabled" in the settings table to "0". This requires a manual database edit.

You'll need to use a database editing tool that your host provides, such as phpMyAdmin (http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/PhpMyAdmin). If you are unsure what to do, your host may be able to make the edit for you if you ask nicely.

I tried really hard to search the topic for my answer. I only found one person asking about it, and ultimately you had helped them disable. I really need the functionality to cut back on spam to my forum.

If you are selecting and pasting the keys, make sure you're putting in the whole key and that you don't have a space at the end of it. The space at the end is a fairly common issue.

Thank you for the quick response.  I just finished triple checking that.  I was also concerned that maybe my version of reCAPTCHA for SMF was incorrect, but I have 0.9.8a.  That's correct right?  The link to generate a key is the old address though.  Is there a newer version?

Thanks for your help!

You must enable the reCAPTCHA system to use it, so you won't see anything there by default.

You might be using a custom theme that has extra template files it probably shouldn't have. Switch to the default theme and the options should show.

Steveiwonder, use the newest version of the modification, which has the updated URL for getting keys. Heck, just going to "http://recaptcha.net/" will take you to the main page for the service, where you can register for a key pair.

If you're really lazy, just use this link directly: https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/create

Just an odd side-note, I noticed upon uninstalling it tries to find ?> in the Default theme's CSS file to add a blank line before it, which makes no sense because the CSS file is not coded in PHP. It uninstalls fine without issues despite this bug, but thought I'd mention it since it may scare some less-experienced users. :)

P.S. Upon installation, it tries to find that same code again to add CSS before it, and for some reason SMF 2 doesn't see an issue with it despite that closing PHP tag not existing in there. It's odd to say the least, but all seems to work well.

Are you seeing this in SMF itself, or in a parser tool? The instructions in the XML are to add the lines at the end, and whatever is showing this, might just be using that as a placeholder for "end of file" regardless of it being PHP or not.

It happened in SMF 2 itself when I went to "uninstall" the "package". I'm beginning to think it's a SMF 2 bug though. I saw this happen with another mod an hour or two after my post with another mod on a different SMF 2 forum.

I've got an issue

Recently I upgraded my forum from 1.1.15 to 2.0.1 and I'm using default theme

In the upgrade I deleted recaptcha mod and installed the last version (0.9.8a) and it runs correctly -almost-

I noticed spammers where too much numerous than before when I was runing 1.1.15 and recaptcha mod

Fortunatly I also run Stop Spammer mod and I only have to reject them but it takes me too much more time than before

Here is the issue I found when trying a new registration: at the window where you have to choose your user name and pasword recaptcha doesn't appeares (just after submitting the agreement letter and saying you are older than 16 years)

Is it that something related to my 2.0.1 SMF's version?

I have recaptcha enabled and configured to require users under 50 posts to enter recaptcha code to send PM and users under 25 post to enter recaptcha code to reply any theme and it works. The only thing not working is the registration board

In the meanwhile I installed Anti Bot: Are You Human/Bot? mod to try solve the spammers registrations

Any help will be appreciated

Also, if you are using SMF 2, you should use the verification questions feature that's built-in. It's currently one of the most effective methods of defeating automated attempts to register/post.

Hi, I'm using SMF 2.0.1 and Default Theme

Due to several problems regarding users being unable to post any replies to any topic using recaptcha I decided to disable reCAPTCHA

I installed Anti Bot: Are You Human/Bot? mod version 3.0 (for registration) and currently I use built-in verification system (for posting)

Bots decreased activity and verification for posting in topics works

Tge question is: will we have a reCAPTCHA update for 2.0.1?

It means that the server is configured to deny outbound connections. You probably won't be able to make use of reCAPTCHA.

Anyway, why not make use of the registration questions built into SMF 2.0? They are much more effective.

Just want to point out that the mod isn't updating the Register.template.php file correctly for SMF 1.1.16 (error on install).

The last block in core.xml should be:
Code: [Select]
<tr class="windowbg2" valign="top">
<th width="50%" align="right">
<label for="coppaAge_input">', $txt['admin_setting_coppaAge'], '</label> <span style="font-weight: normal;">(<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=helpadmin;help=coppaAge" onclick="return reqWin(this.href);">?</a>)</span>:

And another </tr> tag has to be added at the end of the replacement block as a result.

I'm a little behind still using SMF1 but just incase there are still a few other laggers out there like me. :)

Hi:
I have upgraded my forum from SMF 1.1.15 to SMF2 and after i installed this mod.
Installation passed all steps, but now i activate to use recaptcha system but don't show it on registration, shows the default SMF captcha, but if you try to register and enters the captcha of SMF correct, say that entered text is incorrect, so maeby is a bug that don't make a modification to SMF during installation?

In your board settings somewhere, wherever the Captcha stuff is set, it should allow you to select ReCaptcha instead of the standard board one, as well as input your API keys.

Edit: Admin Panel -> Configuration -> Security and Moderation -> Anti-Spam -> Under "reCAPTCHA Verification System", make sure the box across from "Use reCAPTCHA Verification System" is checked. Input your public and private keys obtained from the reCaptcha website, and select your theme. Click the "Save" button and it should work now.

Yes i have set that before, as said on my post, captcha system was not shown but was used to verify if captcha entered was correct or not, i needed to modify manualy the file called: Themes/default/GenericControls.template.php
I don't know if was a bug or something else but during installation all was OK but after that file wasn't modified, now works fine after modifying that file.

Thanks.

That will probably not happen. This modification aims to be an alternative to the built-in image verification, nothing more.

Check the language string files. You might have had an empty line near the bottom, and the installation stuck all the PHP code after the close of the PHP block, making those lines display. You can fix this by moving the "?>" to the very end of the file.

Steveiwonder, use the newest version of the modification, which has the updated URL for getting keys. Heck, just going to "http://recaptcha.net/" will take you to the main page for the service, where you can register for a key pair.

If you're really lazy, just use this link directly: https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/create

There is no way. Google owns/operates the service and is now requiring that a Google account be used for the service:

Quote
reCAPTCHA is now part of Google. In order to use it, you must create a new Google Account or sign in with an existing Google Account.

If you are a previous user of reCAPTCHA, you can migrate your old account after signing in with a Google Account.

I cannot control what Google decides to do with their property.

I have not had a chance to review and update it. You can use version emulation to install it and it should work cleanly.

Please note that reCAPTCHA has been compromised by human-backed solving services for some years. You should look into SMF 2's built-in question/answer system for more secure anti-spam measures.

stang7043, if your custom theme has a Register.template.php in it, you will need to make the changes to that file manually to properly install the modification.

If you are using SMF 2, the built-in question/answer system offers much better spam-prevention than reCAPTCHA does.

Does anyone know if this mod is still compatible with SMF 2.0.3? I'm assuming yes since it works fine in SMF 2.0.2, but the last version updated on the mod page lists SMF 2.0, so I'm being cautious about it. :P
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on December 18, 2012, 02:48:22 AM
It should work fine because of the very minor changes since 2.0 was released, but I haven't had a chance to confirm. Mostly this is because of heavy workload (and some long-standing personal/family issues) preventing development on the modifications for quite some time. Do a version emulate and if the install tests are good, it should be fine to install.

Do keep in mind the reported issue above about using this on an https-secured site/page.

Also, I suggest looking into using the built-in question/answer feature as it's currently a stronger anti-spam measure. The reCAPTCHA system has suffered numerous setbacks on effectiveness with current spamming tools being able to decode the images (or use pay services that have humans decode them).

Thanks for your response man. If there's no known issues so far, then I'll probably install it.

I actually have several security mods installed that I use with this one. Although most bots can get past ReCaptcha now, it slows them down and stops the less-intelligent ones quite well. Coupling them together creates for a great setup. :)

If anyone is running their forum over SSL, you're going to have issues with this mod as-is if anyone uses v22+ of Chrome to view your site and set up an account.

Also, Google changed the ReCaptcha API around a bit so the include code for the template page needs to be updated. The old stuff still works as I write this, but who knows for how long.

Install this mod as is, but then modify the ./Themes/default/GenericControls.template.php

Find
Code: (php) [Select]
http://api.recaptcha.net/challenge?k=Replace with:
Code: (php) [Select]
http://www.google.com/recaptcha/api/challenge?k=
Find:
Code: (php) [Select]
http://api.recaptcha.net/noscript?k=Replace With:
Code: (php) [Select]
http://www.google.com/recaptcha/api/noscript?k=
We ran into this when trying to make the include script SSL compatible. The old API calls with the embed were invalid because Google changed the web address for the calls.

If you force SSL like we do, just change the "http://" to "https://" and Chrome will load the embed like it should. Otherwise Chrome users won't see the ReCaptcha form and wont be able to validate properly.

Users can tell Chrome to load "unsecure content" but most of you web admins out there know that most users arent going to be savvy enough to do that on their own.

The question and answer feature does not work.. They can even do maths.. here is a question I had 4+6-2 = ?
Its cool anyway.. I found something to stop bots. recaptcha is the only captcha system that works..
Its recommended by MANY,.. I suggest if you can't update the mod, offer it to someone who can.

Because its needed badly..
Thanks.

Sure it does if you write good questions. Math questions are easy, they'll just search Google for the answer.

What you need to do, as has been said in plenty of other places, is write questions that are about what your forum is about, that potential users would be likely to know but not bots or casual outsiders.

Don't blame the feature for not working when you don't use it properly.

That makes sense, but some people are just not that clever and because they are that new to the platform, there really isn't a question you can give them.

This mod needs to be updated or built into SMF its self.. As the one SMF offers doesn't work.

No, it doesn't. As people who use other platforms have discovered, reCAPTCHA is rather vulnerable these days.

Hi,

I am trying to get this mod installed on an old smf version 1.1.2.

I have done all the modification manual, but i don't see the "enable recaptcha" interface in
SMF 1.1:
Admin -> Registration -> Settings

1/ all the text phrases are empty? i did modify Modification.english.php



[EDIT] Ok i have the recaptcha working but the verificiation_image is also visible??
2/ also refreshing the page causes the image verification to act strange, it seems to have to do with session i think?
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on May 11, 2013, 11:47:21 AM
First, you really should think about upgrading to the latest 1.1 release of SMF. That old version has known security issues.

If both the built-in verification image and reCAPTCHA are showing, you might have made a bad manual edit somewhere. The two should be mutually exclusive. Review your edits, and if you can't find the issue reply back and I'll let you know what files you can send for me to review.

I have to agree. You are very far behind in updates, and you are putting your forum at extreme risk by not upgrading, as well as causing yourself more issues with other mods you may be trying to also use.

What Arantor said. reCAPTCHA is more effective than the built-in SMF image verification, but it's still very weak thanks to human-backed services that spammers use. You will want to look at other anti-spam modifications to layer your defenses. I believe there's a version of SMF 2.0's registration questions available as a modification for the 1.1 releases. That's a fairly strong measure as long as you don't use general-knowledge questions.

Huh, I didn't notice it was actually for 1.1.x... I don't know what of the anti-spam measures are actually maintained for 1.1.x any more (I know that if Bad Behaviour is, it's going to be out of date and Misc Anti Spam isn't - nor will it ever be - out for 1.1.x)

I dispute this.. after testing recaptcha for 5 days, the number of spammers making it past captcha (and getting stopped by stop forum spam), has risen from 0-3 a day, to over 30 today.

Im going to leave recaptcha running a few more days just to check it wasnt a one off spam attack, but at the moment, i would summise that the standard smf captcha is infinitely more effective.
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on June 15, 2013, 01:37:30 PM
Both the standard SMF image verification and the reCAPTCHA service are easily bypassed by more sophisticated spamming programs. It is important to have defense-in-depth.
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: dimspace on June 15, 2013, 04:13:59 PM
I have bad behaviour (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2502) mod as first line, and Stop Spammer (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1547)for any that get through registration.

generally with smf captcha i get between 0-3 cases a day that get as far as  stop spammer and get put for manual checking.

Installed reCaptcha on Monday.

Tuesday 17 spammers made it through registration and got picked up by "stop spammer"
Wednesday 23
Thursday 19
Friday 26

This morning when i logged on, 34 different spammers had got through registration and been stopped by "Stop Spammer"

Over the course of today I had a further 17 that got past registration and got picked up by "stop spammer" for manual checking. Eventually it got silly and i reverted to standard smf captcha. Since then (1700h) ive had one got through (its now 2100)

Now it may be that Ive just been subjected to a week long co-incidental spam attack. And it may be the lack of spammers tonight is down to the eastern countries being in bed. My hunch is that they are automated and can bypass ReCaptcha easier than the smf captcha.

Will see what happens back on the smf default over the next few days and report back.

Was going to leave recaptcha enabled for longer but my staff were starting to get really narky.

None of this is your fault btw. The mod is great and works just as it should. I just have a feeling that ReCaptcha isnt very effective at all. :(

It is very possible that they are using a human-backed service that can use reCAPTCHA but need to fall back to stupid OCR on the built-in SMF feature.

There have been several effective attacks on the service itself over the last several years. With the rise of human-backed solving services like CaptchaBot (among many others) that have an easy API, anyone with a few dollars can pay to have actual humans solve CAPTCHA and other image solutions easily. This is why things like strong question/answer blocks and defense-in-depth are needed.

quite the opposite. you are missing the point.

With recaptcha multiple spammers get through, with smf captcha minimal spammers get through. This implies it is not human backed spam but automated spam that is able to defeat recaptcha.

Logged on this afternoon. No spammers got through overnight using smf captcha.

So...
Monday - 2
==== installed ReCaptcha =====
Tuesday 17 spammers made it through registration and got picked up by "stop spammer"
Wednesday 23
Thursday 19
Friday 26
Saturday 34
==== Reverted to smf captcha (on basic setting - no noise)  ====
Sunday 0

(only myself and one other have access to approving members put for manual checking by spam checker.

So my conclusion is they are not using "human backed" they are using automation which is able to get past ReCaptcha but not past SMF captcha
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: SugarD-x on June 16, 2013, 11:13:23 PM
The only reason why SMF's captcha would outperform ReCaptcha's is because it's older, less-widely used, and most modern bots aren't programmed to handle it anymore since everyone has generally switched to something else. If there is a large movement where people begin going backwards on this again, (which I've seen a bit of lately), then you're only going to see a comeback of spammers essentially "raping" your forum with registrations.

It should be quite the opposite conclusion. reCAPTCHA is widely used, so it makes sense for there to be many human-backed services that offer ways to "solve" the puzzle. Nearly all the "human-backed" services offer a programable API for it. The built-in SMF one isn't used so much anymore and so detection for it may fall back to plain OCR. This would make success rates for bypassing the built-in solution much lower.

When I say human-backed, I'm not talking about actual people browsing and signing up for an account. There are services available that hire real people to sit in front of a computer and solve image puzzles. These services offer an API that spam software makers can use to send the puzzles only to this service in an automated fashion. Often the cost is a few dollars per 1000 solutions, so it's really cheap. If you're interested in this, I refer you to an old, but still quite good, article by security researcher Dancho Danchev titled Inside India's CAPTCHA Solving Economy (http://www.zdnet.com/blog/security/inside-indias-captcha-solving-economy/1835).

Honestly, using registration (and post!) questions is a great and effective choice right now, as long as you ask decent enough domain-specific questions and can rely on your visitors all having some experience with a single language. (The multi-language thing is why this community doesn't use this technique.)

Workaround for verification questions not showing up:

Problem:
reCAPTCHA is set to work as either by itself with no other verification OR replace SMF'S built-in captcha. Unfortunately SMF's built in captcha is tied to its verification questions, so if you select "None" for Visual verification image to display - it hides BOTH the built in SMF captcha AND your questions.

Solution:
Select "Very simple - plain text on image" instead from the Visual Verification drop down. Then type x in "Number of verification questions user must answer", x being how many questions you have. reCAPTCHA will then replace SMF's default captcha, and your questions will show up.

tested with SMF 2.0.8 :D

Google has adjusted reCAPTCHA to display puzzles based on streetview images for users that it feels are less likely to be bots.

I still do not understand, is that I do the tests from the same machine and the same IP connection ... just changing the browser, and it gives different results.

so I do not see the relation with the level of security, it would be the same

If they told what they looked for, that would give too much away. I believe at the least, being logged into a verified Google Account (one with a valid phone number and other details) helps. Even that may not quite be it, though.


(damn spammers keep coming)

If you want to stop spam, I recommend using multiple systems. While it's good against simple systems, reCAPTCHA is no longer effective against much of the popular sophisticated spamming software out there. I recommend using verification questions if at all possible. They are built into 2.0 and a backport of the feature is available as a modification for SMF 1.1.x (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1516). I also recommend using httpBL (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2155) if you can.

1. First bug: If you use recaptcha for new members to be required at first 5 posts and member type wrong a letter will receive the msg: "The letters you typed don't match the letters that were shown in the picture" and give you: Back button link...till here is ok but after you type the back button and type correctly the new recaptcha code(i try with refresh code too) will receive always this error:
Code: [Select]
You already submitted this post! You might have accidentally double clicked or tried to refresh the page.
I dunno if there is a solution in this topic, anyway, I fixed the Subs-Editor.php file. Must be replace the code:
Code: [Select]
if(!empty($modSettings['recaptcha_enabled']) && ($modSettings['recaptcha_enabled'] == 1 && !empty($modSettings['recaptcha_public_key']) && !empty($modSettings['recaptcha_private_key'])))
{
if(!empty($_POST["recaptcha_response_field"]) && !empty($_POST["recaptcha_challenge_field"])) //Check the input if this exists, if it doesn't, then the user didn't fill it out.
{
require_once("$sourcedir/recaptchalib.php");

$resp = recaptcha_check_answer($modSettings['recaptcha_private_key'], $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'], $_REQUEST['recaptcha_challenge_field'], $_REQUEST['recaptcha_response_field']);

if (!$resp->is_valid)
fatal_lang_error('error_wrong_verification_code', false);
}
else
fatal_lang_error('error_wrong_verification_code', false);
}

with:

Code: [Select]
if(!empty($modSettings['recaptcha_enabled']) && ($modSettings['recaptcha_enabled'] == 1 && !empty($modSettings['recaptcha_public_key']) && !empty($modSettings['recaptcha_private_key'])))
{

As soon as I have time, I'll look into updating things.

Please update it, it's pretty much useless now. However, I have to use it since contact form add-on is using it. Thank you

How is it useless? It still functions, last I checked. It doesn't have the fancy new "easy bypass" thing, but that won't affect if it works or not.

If you must have it updated this very second, contact me to work out payment details. My time is pretty full with my day job and family issues (grandparents are having a lot of health issues). My little free time is spent on trying to relax. If you need some of that time right now, I'd like a little compensation for giving up time.

Otherwise, please have patience. Also, the built-in question/answer feature in SMF is really good. You should use that if you can.

I think there is a syntax error in the last update of the mod.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '{' in .../Sources/Subs-Editor.php on line 2002

Maybe it's because of too many "(" in

if((isset($_POST["g-recaptcha-response"]))

???

This will be fixed in 1.0.1, which will be released shortly.


But I got into another problem.
ERROR: Invalid domain for site key
Although I used the correct keys from the admin panel on reCAPTCHA site.

Double-check that the domain and keys match. I've tested on two different sites I manage, and the code should be okay. On one, I had to re-issue credentials as the domain was removed from my account some time ago. The other was set up and continues to work okay without issue after the update.

Also, the terms have changed, so put the "Site Key" in the "Public Key" box and "Secret Key" into the "Private Key" box.

I just Uninstalled version 0.9.9 and replaced it with the version 1.0.1 I just got ....
But in the Package Manager it says "
reCAPTCHA for SMF 1.0.0" ... did you forget to update the version number in the file I just downloaded? Or did I get the 1.0.0 file when I clicked? (filename is reCAPTCHAforSMF_1.0.1.tar.gz)

Oh, yeah, forgot to bump the internal version number in a rush to post the fix. I'll probably issue another update to fix the terms to match what Google is using and I'll (hopefully) fix the version number display at that point.

Yes, I believe I'm using the default error message from the built-in image verification. I'll look around and see if there's anything more appropriate. I'm really trying to limit custom strings because it limits the languages supported until people can contribute translations.

青山 素子, I had made a minor mod, I used for my sites, that you may wish to add to this.
What it does, is centers the reCAPTCHA on the register page, so it's lined up with the rest of the verifications.
If wish, I could PM you the edits I did. :)

Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF - reCAPTCHA v2?
Post by: fmmobley on July 01, 2015, 08:19:13 PM
First... thanks for this mod it works great and is awesome.

I just received an email from Google informing me that there is now a version 2 of Recaptcha and they are urging me to start using it.

Can you incorporate version 2 into your mod?

This is what I got from Google:

-------------------
Dear Webmaster,
You're receiving this email because you're registered as a website administrator for a site that uses reCAPTCHA.
Google launched reCAPTCHA v2 (i.e. No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA) in Dec, 2014. The new version provides a more simplified user experience than reCAPTCHA v1, with an enhanced spam fighting mechanism.

Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: Steel87 on July 02, 2015, 06:32:49 AM
Hi!

I didn't get a response from the google server.

Replacing the following line in recaptchalib.php in function  _submitHTTPGet

Code: [Select]
        $response = file_get_contents($path . $req);

with

Code: [Select]
        // create a new cURL resource
$ch = curl_init();

// set URL and other appropriate options
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $path . $req);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

// grab URL and pass it to the browser
$response = curl_exec($ch);

// close cURL resource, and free up system resources
curl_close($ch);

fixed that problem.

Also replacing in Subs-Editor.php

Code: [Select]
fatal_lang_error('error_wrong_verification_code', false);
with

Code: [Select]
$verification_errors[] = 'wrong_verification_code';
led to a more convenient error handling.

Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on July 02, 2015, 05:31:57 PM
I'll look into changing the error message handling.

The recaptchalib.php file is provided by Google itself, I'm not going to edit it. Your method may work for you, but it adds a dependency on the cURL library and PHP extension, which isn't set up on many providers. Feel free to use your method if it works for you.

Post by: Lum-chan on July 15, 2015, 04:20:35 AM
Thanks for providing the update for reCAPTCHA.

The newone works without any problems (no errormessages, but I had to re-issue the keys). The only thing that bothers me is the used language (on my machine tested only) in the reCAPTCH image. It shows as Japanese characters. As I'm using the dutch language on my site, this will be confusing to those who are not able to read Japanese.

Any reason for this?

I'm using Firefox 24.8.1ESR (EN-US). The forum runs on SMF 2.0.10.

[edit]
Tested again but with IE 8.0. It show the images with the correct used forum-language (Dutch)
Can't figure out why Firefox wants to display this in Japanese, tho
[/edit]
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: Kanman on July 15, 2015, 04:50:55 AM
It seems google identify your firefox as Japanese.
What's your computer language set up? Did you set your google account to Japanese?
Maybe your browser is set-up to go through a proxy?

I do have an Dutch 2.0.10 and browsing with Firefox 39.0(NL)

Have you received complains about this from users?
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: Lum-chan on July 15, 2015, 05:21:47 AM
@KanMan: My computer is using the EN-US language (I'm Dutch but I always use Software in English).
No proxy is used in Firefox and the default language in Google is shown as English (all pages are shown in English too).
I have received no complains from users yet.

As a test I disabled all extensions and plugins in Firefox, but this didn't help (cleaned the cache too, in case of)

In Firefox, enable of disable geo.enabled and restarting doesn't help

http://www.passat35i-forum.nl/forum/index.php?action=register

[edit]
Problem Solved!

I removed this in Firefox:
Options -> Content -> Choose your preferred language for displaying pages -> Japanese [jpn]

This was all my own fault, but might be helpful to other people
[edit]

Post by: 青山 素子 on July 15, 2015, 02:34:34 PM

Love the mod, looks perfect and for me everything works great, but I have a problem with my mobile template.

And the 2 advices for smf4mobile are the next "2a" and "3a".
I dont have in my .php the code of third image when I have to add: }
Myabe this is the problem but I do not have any idea about web design  :'(

Played around a bit with v2 of recaptcha.
One big thing to note is they took away global keys. You now have to list each domain so that sucks. Did find a workaround though you have to create a secure token.
Here is a the lib samples with ReCaptchaToken.php included.

I did something like this on my sites
Code: [Select]
global $sourcedir;
require("$sourcedir/ralib/ReCaptchaToken.php");


$reconfig = array('site_key' => $modSettings['recaptcha_public_key'], 'site_secret' => $modSettings['recaptcha_private_key']);
$recaptchaToken = new \ReCaptchaSecureToken\ReCaptchaToken($reconfig);
$secureToken = $recaptchaToken->secureToken($context['session_id']);

echo '            <div class="g-recaptcha" data-sitekey="', $modSettings['recaptcha_public_key'], '" data-stoken="' .  $secureToken  . '"></div>
            <script type="text/javascript"
                    src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api.js?hl=en">
            </script>
register.php
Code: [Select]
require("$sourcedir/ralib/autoload.php");

// Check whether the visual verification code was entered correctly.
if(!empty($modSettings['recaptcha_enable']) || ($modSettings['recaptcha_enabled'] == 1 && !empty($modSettings['recaptcha_public_key']) && !empty($modSettings['recaptcha_private_key'])))
{
if (isset($_POST['g-recaptcha-response']))
{
$recaptcha = new \ReCaptcha\ReCaptcha($modSettings['recaptcha_private_key']);
$resp = $recaptcha->verify($_POST['g-recaptcha-response'], $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']);

if ($resp->isSuccess() == false)
{
fatal_lang_error('visual_verification_failed', false);
}



}
else
fatal_lang_error('visual_verification_failed', false);



}

Google took down all their documentation on using secure tokens. As far as I'm concerned, that makes such an option officially unsupported and likely to go away. Anyone is welcome to try and do this on their site, but I'm not planning on adding undocumented features that are subject to breakage. Should this get added back to the official documentation, let me know and I'll see about adding it officially.

   All mods were uninstalled without problem, no errors, and new ones were installed through the package manager.

   So I don't know if any of mods broke the code, but they all seem to work fine, except reCaptcha.

Hello,

I installed the reCaptcha Mod primarily for guest posting, but now I noticed that there is an error when using the reCaptcha for guest search validation.
Anything I do results in the error message:
"Please enter the verification code below to continue to the results."

I do not know if this error only occurs on my installation, or in general.
Does anyone have this problem too, or knows a solution?

I am using SMF 2.0.11 and the Mod Version from  reCAPTCHAforSMF_1.0.1.tar.gz (in the package manager it says 1.0.0 anyhow... which is also kind of strange)

It should be working, but I'll check as soon as I can. The failure message is recycled from the default strings for the built-in system, so that's why it talks about letters.

about the "letters wrong" error (search box errors).  I was convinced it was a bug of the mod. So I have been reviewing the source code and applied a change that worked well for me. Explained following:

Code: [Select]
$Source/Search.php

[search for]

                // If we come from another search box tone down the error...
if (!isset($_REQUEST['search_vv']))

[Replace by]

// If we come from another search box tone down the error...
if (!isset($_REQUEST['search_vv']) && !$modSettings['recaptcha_enabled'])



I'm not sure about it's an appropiate modification, but it works...

Best Regards,

Great mod very simple and clean a must have!

Also regards to reCaptcha being automatically cracked by bots is not something I am aware of and I have made plenty of bots for different kinds of platforms. If you have some knowledge on cracking these automatically please share that would be very interesting. There is one service I affiliate with who uses real people to crack the captchas for pittance. It can only be done manually and they have to pay to use the service as real people are solving the captchas and sending it back. The fact people would have to pay to distribute bots on your site makes it less likely especially for small forums. BDC does not work with googles new reCaptchas.

Awesome mod!

I had this error also, and I also didn't want the error taking me away from the page I was on, so this edit that fixed those issues for me :D Double whammy.

Open /Sources/Subs-Editor.php
and search for
Code: (find) [Select]
fatal_lang_error('error_wrong_verification_code', false);Replace with
Code: (replace) [Select]
$verification_errors[] = 'wrong_verification_code';
You will find 2 instances of it, replace both of them.

You got that error because they either didn't try to answer the reCaptcha or they answered it incorrectly.

There's an error with the css on installation.

It will install the css as:
Code: [Select]
/* Make the reCAPTCHA dialog centered to match the positioning of the built-in verification */
.g-recaptcha div div
{
margin: auto;
}

But it needs to be:
Code: [Select]
/* Make the reCAPTCHA dialog centered to match the positioning of the built-in verification */
.g-recaptcha div
{

}

Or else it won't do anything.

I am seeing the same issue, it seems like enabling this mod HIDES the old anti-spam check of figures and takes no notice of the ReCaptcha function. Disable Recaptcha and the registration works as before. Re-enable and you get the error message about letters typed don't match.

Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

Works fine in IE, but who uses IE really anymore? My site is about 90% hand held mobile device traffic, and to be honest, does anybody know anyone who actually uses MS Edge? I don't know anybody myself and I work with a rather large infrastructure team at the company I am employed with. If you bring up the subject of IE or Edge you see developers faces cringe.

IE? All of my Cisco voIP browser based tools require FF as the main platform and function in Chrome but are rendered completely useless and more or less inoperable in IE and Edge. I guess because Cisco develops their software on an open source platform, FF and Chrome is all I've ever been able to use almost exclusively in my job requirement for the last 18 years.

Impressive since neither FF nor Chrome are that old, FF emerged somewhere around 2004 from the remnants of what was Netscape, Chrome emerged in 2008-9.

I’m assuming they build for Chrome as that’s the most commonly used browser and don’t test on FF, it just happens to mostly work.

Edge is actually pretty good these days, seeing how several of my multinational clients are Edge only...

Guess my timing is off. Apparently I'm so used to using FF that I guess I assumed. Anyway, We're moving from 10.6 to 11 with our phone system platform and Cisco outright said to use FF exclusively during demo and orientation, similarly when we moved from 8.x into 10.6 it was the same. Finesse 10.6 doesn't work at all in Chrome, does work in IE but is ridiculously slow. Whatever the case, all I am doing is what Cisco suggested so.....that's why I use FF exclusively.

I just uploaded an update. Please note that there are some major changes with this version, mainly to integrate things in a cleaner way. The reCAPTCHA method now operates independently from the built-in visual verification system rather than replacing it. This means you need to disable the built-in visual integration if you don't want it to be used.

Also, I know there is the whole Invisible reCAPTCHA system too, but I'm not planning on supporting it. The way you need to set up things in the code appears to be way too intrusive to make a clean modification that supports it.

Thank you, greatly appreciated. When you say invisible I'd like to make sure I understand what you mean. I use the current "I'm not a robot" recaptcha. Is that the invisible recaptcha? Also does the old version have to be removed when the new version is installed?

Yes, the old version has to be removed to install the new version.

No, this is not the invisible reCAPTCHA, this is 'noCAPTCHA'. The invisible CAPTCHA is the next iteration where many users see no obvious challenge to face because of a whole lot of profiling done under the hood to identify whether the user 'feels like a bot' or not. If they pass the test, they don't even see a thing to fill in.

What Arantor said. (Thanks for helping out!)

Invisible reCAPTCHA is pretty darn cool. Basically, you don't see it at all unless it thinks you may not be human. In that case, you see it. The thing is, because of how you need to set things up to use it (some javascript intercepts things), it would be a lot more changes to SMF than I feel are wise.

I had been using this mod for a while successfully and something broke it recently...not sure what. The registration flow goes like this:

- registration page comes up
- user fills in reg information
- CAPTCHA appears and is solved
- user submits form and it times out after 20 seconds or so (php.ini and php-fpm timers are longer)

If I switch back to the built-in SMF captcha everything works fine.

I checked the reCAPTCHA portal on Google and there were no stats for my key pair because "site's traffic is below the minimum required to display charts" even though it had been in use successfully for a while.

There was also a warning at the top of the page about my client not verifying user answers or something to that effect...I deleted my previous key pair and set up a new key pair today and still no luck.

Has anyone seen anything like this?

If you mean 2.0.0, yes. Uninstalled 1.0.0 and installed 2.0.0. Still just hangs and times out.

That's some pretty odd behavior you are experiencing. The only thought I have is that something is configured so that the server can't contact the reCAPTCHA backend to verify the information.

If you want to try some things, there's example code over at https://github.com/google/ReCAPTCHA (which is the library I use for the modification) you can upload and test with some pretty simple code. If that doesn't work, then it's something with the server.

I won't be able to offer help for uploading and getting that example code working, sorry.

Thanks for the information. In practicality, having the type attribute missing shouldn't have a negative effect. However, I verified that it's required for HTML 4 and XHTML 1.x and optional for HTML 5. Since the presence isn't a problem in HTML 5, I'll make that change in a future release.

Is there an issue with Re-captcha today? I am using the latest version 2.0, (turned off and using the default anti-spam) but had to turn off because I'm getting hammered with bot posts as if recaptcha isn't working at all. Until today I've never had any issues with the previous or latest versions for guest posting or registrations.

reCAPTCHA has been broken for a long time. Most widespread CAPTCHA solutions have been. There are actual businesses out there farming out solving work to poor countries and charging pennies per solve. I don't advise using it by itself and instead using anti-spam questions with or without a CAPTCHA.

Why is it when I activate to use this, when you register, it gets an error message, saying you didn't enter the letters required, when there were none?

The normal system is set to None.

I had to turn this off, since it appears to not work properly with the normal system.

Any way around this?

I prefer the tick box to the letters.

I have a weird problem with this plugin.

1)
It is not possible to combine with the built-in captcha. Is that as designed? If I have both things enabled captcha is not shown

2)
If you use custom question and/or built-in captcha - the caption of the first edit box is not shown, only the ":"
Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: 青山 素子 on October 17, 2018, 04:37:03 PM
If you are using the newest version, both the built-in and the reCAPTCHA should work independently. Likewise, the custom questions should work fine with reCAPTCHA and not show issues.

Note that this was only tested with the built-in themes. If you are using a custom theme, then there may be display issues.

Code: [Select]

<input type="text" name="', $verify_id, '_vv[q][', $verify_context['questions'][$qIndex]['id'], ']" size="30" value="', $verify_context['questions'][$qIndex]['a'], '" ', $verify_context['questions'][$qIndex]['is_error'] ?

</div>';

they are the line 347-348 it marks me the error at the moment to implement it appears to me like the attached image (to see image) although I manage to remove it at the moment of registering it marks me error for not completing the captcha correctly.

Well, the code that demands verification and issues the questions is within a loop.

If visual verification has been requested the loop shows this first, then adjusts the index into the question list accordingly (to ensure it starts at 0).

If reCaptcha is involved the loop index isn't adjusted so the questions subscript goes out of bounds.

By setting visual verification to NONE the above fix will work if reCaptcha is installed and switched on.

If both visual verification AND reCaptcha are needed, the above fix may need changing, to something like this (untested):

Code: (Change To) [Select]
// Where in the question array is this question?
$qIndex = $verify_context['show_visual'] ? $i - 1 : $i;
                        $qIndex = $verify_context['use_recaptcha'] ? qIndex - 1 : qIndex;

Pretty much this. If you absolutely have to have the newest version of ReCaptcha, you can modify the code to support it. Google has information on their website for this, and I believe a few users have also briefly discussed it in this topic.

You need to use new keys specifically for the new versions of ReCaptcha. You can't use the ReCaptcha v1 keys with ReCaptcha v2 or v3.

Go to https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin and scroll down to "Register a new site". Choose your desired version you plan to run, and create new keys for the mod.

For more information on the different versions: https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/versions

I use the latest repo version of 2.1 and have had no problems, however that copy is by no means ready for release. Moving to a pre-release version is at your own risk, and it even says in several places that you should not use it on a live site. Will you have problems? Maybe, maybe not. Is it worth the risk? Only you can decide that. In your case, if you are upgrading from 1.x, I would personally hold off, as you are trying to jump across several major versions to something that isn't even done yet, so there is a lot of potential for problems there. Your best bet is to make backups and then upgrade to 2.0.x. Then you can just wait for the final release of 2.1 and upgrade to it with less risk of destroying your entire forum.

Title: Re: reCAPTCHA for SMF
Post by: Arantor on December 17, 2018, 06:05:31 AM
Yeah, that’s a tarball. Basically, tar is a thing that bundles everything up into a single file, and then you compress it separately, which is why tar.bz2 and tar.gz exist - tar is the bundle, gz or bz2 is the compression.

Does not solve the issue for me.

I have enabled:

- two custom answers (SMF built-in)
-  ReCaptcha...

Replacing the old code line with the one above simply hides ReCaptcha.

$qIndex = $verify_context['show_visual'] ? $i - 1 : $i;

Second code bit seems to work when:

But you have to disable visual ReCaptcha

Close/Open browser when trying to login to reinitiate a completely new session (at least on Edge a CTRL+F5 did not fully always make registration form reflect changes done in settings.)

Hello folks,

Visual verification image to display: none
Number of verification questions user must answer:  0

If I set Number of verification questions user must answer: to 1 or 2 , there is only one additional question, but two fields for filling the answers. Is this normal behaviour or should I change something?
Installation process went fine, there were no made any changes. I suppose that configuration process (only with siteKey/secretKey) of reCaptcha does not require changes in the templates. ::)

Are there plans on making it compatible with v3? Thanks anyway.

Not at this time, I believe, nor the version built into SMF 2.1.

one more question - how can i change the language for "im not a robot" text? Does it change automatically or is it specified somewhere in the settings? Can it be shown in two different languages? For example, for english speakers in english, and for germans in german?

For language, it is supposed to auto-detect the user's language based on their browser settings. You can only show one language at a time.

If you need to override auto detection, you will need to edit Sources/recaptcha/recaptcha-for-smf.php manually. Find the script tag in the file and add the hl parameter to the end of the URL with api.js. You can find information about what to display over at the official reCAPTCHA documentation (https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/display#js_param). Note that this will force the language to the one you set, and disable auto-detection.

If I remember rightly, Google only gives you data on completions once you have a site busy enough to justify it.

So when my site would have more traffic the message will dissappear, isnt' it?

Thank yo for your answer Arantor  ;) ;) ;)

When you say "google keeps saying" what do you actually mean.  Do you mean in your recaptcha account, or when trying to register as a member or... ?

There’s a section in the Google recaptcha stuff where it shows you activity, but it only kicks in above a certain threshold.

There isn't a problem here to solve. Google just says it won't provide traffic details until a site has a certain level of activity; the above user does not yet have that level of activity, therefore no report.

Hello. It looks like ReCaptcha and questions are not working together right?
If I set ReCaptcha and question together; the question place is empty but answer box is shown...

Any idea?

What's your antispam setup configured as?

Mine is set to:

Use reCAPTCHA Verification System:    checked
Visual verification image to display:    none
Number of verification questions user must answer:    2

With those, the amendment I have in GenericControls.template.php is

Code: [Select]
// Where in the question array is this question?
$qIndex = ($verify_context['show_visual'] || $verify_context['use_recaptcha']) ? $i - 1 : $i;


... and it all works fine. For me. With those settings.
Thanks that worked for me..
