reCaptcha stopped working
« on: March 20, 2020, 04:11:59 AM »
Running 2.1 RC2 (vanilla, no mods). It just stopped working a couple days ago on the signup page. No errors in logs, keys are valid, no changes have been made to code or settings. It just fails with "invalid captcha value" when clicking submit now, even with a green checkbox.

google api having weirdness or Any ideas?

Same problem here as well.
I just received frustrated calls from users trying to sign up. No matter how many tries, you always get "invalid reCaptcha".

Tried reading the Google reCaptcha group, but there are no signs there that there is a problem with the service as such:

Question:  Is everyone updating the code from GitHub?  Or are you running the same code that worked before?

I am trying to understand if this is tied to a recent code change or not.

I cannot reproduce this using current 2.1 code from GitHub.

What browsers are you using?  Does changing browser change the behavior? 

What version of 2.1 are you using?  The RC2 download, or a more recent version from GitHub?


Google Chrome had an issue in the past, solved following these instructions:

We are running on the "old" 2.1 RC2, with no recent changes that we know of.
Registration issues with the incorrect recaptcha has happened the last few days according to reporters.
The error is the same using Chrome on Android phones, as well as on Chrome and Edge on Windows 10.
At least 4 different users has reported the same error.

Does it work if you remove the CAPTCHA?  (The standard one with the letters)

Google Chrome had an issue in the past, solved following these instructions:

Mine is the 2.1 RC2 download version, fails on any browser.

Still the stats on https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/site seems to indicate everything is fine.
Google did not reply to my request on the uptime or changes to the service.

Bug is now reported, thanks to Mastum!  https://github.com/SimpleMachines/SMF2.1/issues/6056

A fix has been applied, can you test it again using the latest build?
