hCaptcha vs reCaptcha

Post by gsmela » Fri Apr 10, 2020 11:44 am

Hello. Cloudflare has started using hCaptcha in place of reCaptcha since Google announced plans to start charging for reCaptcha. (No big surprise there.)

Has anyone come up with a drop-in replacement for Joomla using hCaptcha? I don't see one in the JED.

Thank you!

I use this. It's not dependant on any 3. party service and is not visible to the client.

I tried to created a hCaptcha plugin. It works on my local machine.
But on some of my other test Joomla websites, it keeps giving an "The CAPTCHA was incorrect." error.
So it's not yet ready....

Maybe someone else can spot what I've done wrong?
The code: https://github.com/pe7er/hCaptcha
Note: Do NOT install this current version on a live site. It's not yet ready!

I found a niggling issue - not directly related to your plugin, but I use SP Page Builder for my sites, and in its contact form add on they only include Recaptcha or a simple maths captcha as the options, not listing the avialble captchas from global config settings. (Anyway, will contact Joomshaper about this).

Once this is stable, it will be a worthwhile addition to my sites.

On April 10 I wrote that my free hCaptcha plugin was not working correctly on a live site.
I have solved it by recreating + using a new Site Key.
Now it works correctly.

I can use a couple of beta testers :-)
The plugin is available at github: https://github.com/pe7er/hCaptcha/releases
If you find any issues, please report them at https://github.com/pe7er/hCaptcha/issues

The current version is very basic. I'll add a theme selection later...

This is great. I'll set it on a few of my sites.

Thank you so much for doing this.

I'll install & test this on a couple of sites later today or tomorrow if you still need testers, Peter ;)
