The URL has probably been changed since the last update. You can register at https://www.google.com/recaptcha and choosing "Get reCAPTCHA" on the top right.

Any plans to get this fixed? It's kind of essential for an SMF install nowadays. Bots break through the default captcha like its nothing.

Bots break through reCAPTCHA very easy too. I suggest using the question/answer feature if you want something better. Also, a broken link to a place you can go yourself isn't high priority.

When it was working, I didn't get any bots breaking through.

And I'm not sure what you mean by that second part of your post. I'm referring to the error that says the letters were wrong.

Any idea what could cause these errors? My members can't send PMs at the moment...wondering if it's this mod or something else? :)

Your host needs to fix their OpenSSL configuration.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

Hi all!

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!

Does anyone have an idea?

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.

Will there be an update for this mod?

"Dear Webmaster,
You are receiving this email because you are registered as a website administrator using reCAPTCHA, and your website is still using reCAPTCHA v1, which will be turned off on March 31, 2018.
We announced the reCAPTCHA v1 deprecation in May 2016. Starting in November 2017, a small percentage of reCAPTCHA v1 traffic will begin to show a notice informing users that the old API will soon be retired. Any calls to the v1 API will not work after March 31, 2018.
To ensure continued functionality, you’ll need to update your website to a current version of reCAPTCHA. You can learn more about reCAPTCHA v2, Invisible reCAPTCHA and reCAPTCHA Android API in our Developer’s Guide. The new APIs are simple to implement and will streamline the captcha experience for your users. If you need help, you can engage in the reCAPTCHA Google Developer Group or post to Stack Overflow with the ‘recaptcha’ tag."

Mod was updated some years ago for v2 API reCaptcha.

I received the same email. I thought this was still using the original version. Wasn't the update for version 2 an unofficial change someone posted in the topic here?

Edit: https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=213535.msg3864090#msg3864090

Edit #2: Scratch that.

I think we're good. Looks like Google is just being stupid.

I've been trying to get this mod working on my forum for years now but it is still giving me the same error when you try to register on my forum:



Happens regardless if you tick the recapture box or not.

That appears to be a permissions issue separate from this mod. Make sure user registration is activated in your board's settings.

Same problem here, using 2.0.14 with Responsive Curve mod.

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
{
margin: auto;
}

Or else it won't do anything.
