I’m trying to use BWS reCaptcha on a login/logout page with a shortcode for RestrictContentPro. The captcha seems to work as expected in other pages (Comments), but on the login page it allows users to get in without checking the captcha box. I’m also using the BAW login/logout plugin.
I’ve seen some information on the BWS website about extra steps required on a custom page, as opposed to the default WordPress login. At this point I’m not sure which I have.. pretty sure it’s a page I created, where I put the shortcode. Am I overthinking this? Would be grateful for any suggestions of a fix or an alternate solution…
The BWS support page, which has me completely lost:
Why not simply use the built-in support for reCaptcha that is included in Restrict Content Pro?
Instructions here: http://docs.restrictcontentpro.com/article/1586-recaptcha-supported
The issue you outlined above is likely due to the fact that the plugin you’re using only integrates with the default WordPress login, not with RCP. So RCP’s login form doesn’t know it should require reCaptcha to pass before allowing the login process to continue.
That’s why I would simply enable RCP’s built-in support for reCaptcha. And if you have issues along the way, you might simply reach out to RCP’s excellent support team.
Hope this helps!
