Problem adding reCaptcha to web form

Problem adding reCaptcha to web form

Not sure if this is going beyond forum coverage but...
Im trying to add Google reCaptcha V2 to contact form but the issue I'm having is if I reference the page that contains the reCaptcha php in the form action ( As I should do ) then the email doesn't send. So I tried putting the the action page in the 'send mail' behaviour's 'go to' page, but then reCaptcha doesn't appear to work and displays the PHP echo echo '<h2>Please check the the captcha form.</h2>';.

Ive attached the two pages.

Thanks in advance.

The recaptcha code should be added above the email code on the contact page.... also the server validation code should be above the email code, and usually the recaptcha code should be integrated into the server validation code for a complete integration.

But the reCaptcha code contains the 'if statements' that display the 'success' 'failure' and 'unchecked' results. so how would they display if the reCaptcha code was above the email code? would I have to adapt the code for this to work? Not sure about this as I sourced the code online.

So I guess the best way to do this would be, as you said, to integrate this into the server validation. Is this something you could assist with? happy to donate a cost or go for support ticket!

If you send me the page with your reCaptcha code then I can show you how to integrate it with Server Validations.

Ok great! What else do you need other than the two pages I sent you earlier? The reCaptcha code is currently on the confirmation.php page.

Here is the updated page. You could now go in and add failed validation messages for your captcha and other fields using the Validation Show If server behavior.

Thanks for this Ray.. Fantastic!

I've added some 'validation show if' to error messages but unfortunately captcha error message is not being hidden.

Also.. The send-email behaviour doesn't appear to be triggering.

Any Ideas?

Ive attached the page.

Try adding:
@session_start();

above line 33.

When you first view the page it doesn't have the captcha, but then once it fails it doesn't clear? Please be specific when describing the steps to reproduce an issue. That can really help me determine what the cause is.

Ray I will always try and be as specific as I can.

Subsequently I don't understand what you mean by saying... 'When you first view the page it doesn't have the captcha, but then once it fails it doesn't clear?'

I've tried adding '@session_start();' above line 33 as shown in screen shot. Is this where you mean?

Consequently the Show if message for captcha is still not hiding and the email is still not sending.

Thanks in advance.
