Hi guys,
i'm writing here because I have a problem. Google told me that reCaptcha V1 will be deprecate, and it will not work more.
I have Joomla 2.5, and i'm trying to upgrade reCaptcha in V2....but I'm understanding that it is impossible.
Is there anyone that can help me? maybe using another captcha compatible with joomla 2.5.

Thank you very much

Hi there, I got the same issue and suddenly also v1 stopped working before March 31st.

I wrote a fix for Joomla 2.5 v1 ReCaptcha Plugin, that seems to work...
Download the fix: http://altersoftware.it/recaptcha.php.zip
Expand it, and use its content to replace content of original file your-site/plugin/captcha/recaptcha/recaptcha.php

According to big G's documentation it should keep working also after March 31st, given that you use valid v2 keys.

HTH,
Marco Balestra

Glad to know.

Please note: according to Google my keys were v2, but they were not actually.
Once installed the fix it was working, captcha with images.
By regenerating keys specifically for v2 now I have nocaptcha-recaptcha (just click).

For those of you that are still looking for solution you can try the reCAPTACHA v2 fix for Joomla 2.5 from the URL below:

http://www.tabulizer.com/index.php/supp ... joomla-2-5

Before that I tried this one mentioned by Marco Balestra, but in my case I was getting the error message "Uncaught exception 'InvalidArgumentException'" so I had to search for another solution. Furthermore, they help me to upgrade one component that was using the J2.5 recpatcha code.
