    I am trying to enable recaptcha for my contact form. Your knowledge base refers us to google recaptcha account here:

    https://www.socialengine.com/support/article/73236481/enabling-recaptcha

    If you click through to the link you have given you get to:
    https://cloud.google.com/recaptcha-enterprise/pricing,

    Which states:
    You are charged on a monthly basis for each call you make to create an assessment.

    i am not trying to make calls. I am trying to put a recaptcha on my contact form because I am getting lots of spam. How do I do this?

    Hi Cmackie

    The kb article link you have mentioned above is SE Unite's link while the topic has been posted under SEPHP Help & Tips. I am not sure whether you are having a PHP or Unite website. 

    In case you are using SE PHP, the correct kb article link is: https://www.socialengine.com/support/article/5341468/se-php-spam-and-banning-tools

    The link mentioned here is working fine. 

    Thanks!

    We had mentioned in a recent release that recaptcha will only work right now on the log in and sign up forms. We have to remove mootools in order for it to work. We could only remove it on those two pages for now. A better fix will come with v6. For now, please only use recaptcha on those two sections.

    This is because somehow the link is appending "

    The " to its end, could be due to incorrect closure of tags while posting the reply. 

    Correct Link

    Thanks!

    I meant Donna:)

     

    Also, where can I find instructions to add the recaptcha to the pages you suggest?

    The link that Ritika provided is the one for how to enable recaptcha on those pages. We don't have a release date for v6 yet. It's still cooking. :)
