Hey Guys,

My forum was seeing some crazy registration patterns by bots who could get by all the questions & answers, the vertical placement test, and more.  So, I decided to modify the recaptcha plugin for SMF to use the latest google recaptcha API.  https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/index.html

It appears to be working correctly.



I'll see if I can modify everything in the latest recaptcha plugin package to use my changes.  Then, if I have the author's original consent, I plan to release it, or he can do it.  It was pretty easy to change and operates with the same stored settings in the database.

With permission from 青山 素子, this is an unofficial release for anyone that wants it.

Use package manager to install it.  Works on SMF 1.1.x and 2.x

I tried it again on SMF 2.x.  It worked just fine.  I'll test it again on 1.1.x when I get home.  I have more 1.1.x forums running this than 2.x.

I think I fixed it for both SMF 1.1.X and SMF 2.X.  I think 7-zip on my Windows PC is nuts... anyways, I tested this version on both SMF 1.1.X and SMF 2.X

Could you please try it again Nodaz?  Sorry about that, I'm not sure why it said it was corrupted, but I repacked it and tried again.  It works this time for me on both version.  Again, this is unofficial which is why I haven't submitted it to the SMF team.  I'm waiting for the original author to officially update his package.

Ok, so I downloaded this and tried to install it, no go, error in templates. So I downloaded the official reCaptcha 0.9.9 and got the same error, however it came with manual instructions and so I installed it that way. Now its asking for keys and when I click on the link provided, I got a 404 page not found error, ****** hot  ::).

Any suggestions?.
Regards,

Mick.
