Hello .. I have 3 forms on my business pages that are not working because of ReCaptcha v1.

After reading several threads about this. How can I remove the recaptcha all together manually? Meaning edit the files to remove it to allow the form to function.

Instead of trying to upgrade it to v2 for $129. I do not have the original fb files for each form.

It is crucial I remove this so the forms will pass and do what they are supposed to do.

Thank you for your time. Merry Christmas.
Thank you

Hi Jason,
Try removing the scripts and the code from the form html manually.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.

Hello Eric. Hope you're having a Happy Holiday.

I removed the code that called the recaptcha.

<div class="fb-captcha fb-item-alignment-center" id="fb-captcha_control"
style="padding: 5px 0px; display: block; cursor: default;">
<script type="text/javascript">var RecaptchaOptions = { lang : 'en', theme : 'clean', };</script><script type="text/javascript" src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api/challenge?k=6Lf4Ac4SAAAAAI6dgFGXvNtyqx4iLXASb5mcgOH6"> </script> <noscript> <iframe src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api/noscript?k=6Lf4Ac4SAAAAAI6dgFGXvNtyqx4iLXASb5mcgOH6" height="300" width="500" style="border:none;"></iframe><br> <textarea name="recaptcha_challenge_field" rows="3" cols="40"></textarea> <input type="hidden" name="recaptcha_response_field" value="manual_challenge"> </noscript>
</div>


However upon submission, the error was given: Human proof was incorrect.
There must be something else calling it or looking for an answer. Any idea by chance?

Thank you so much for this. Really need these forms to work. Been away for a while.
Thank you

In the form.cfg.php file remove this area.
"recaptcha":{"captcha":"manual","private_key":"484855949jdjfnbbbbsj4j5666jdjdjdd","public_key":"gkgkgkgkgkgkgkgkgkfkkfkfkfkfkrjddjdhdhdh","fieldtype":"captcha","version":"v1"}

Thank you .. I remember this file now had to edit it several times when creating the form.

I removed the piece of code.. However now it's giving me this error:

Your form could not be submitted for the following reason(s):
Warning: [ err 2/line 192/datasavecsv.cls.php] rename(/home/ta2web/domains/ta2web.com/public_html/contact/TA2-General-Contact/storage/csv/TA2Web-General-Contact.csv,/home/ta2web/domains/ta2web1.com/public_html/contact/TA2-General-Contact/storage/csv/TA2Web-General-Contact1.csv): No such file or directory
Failed to archive data file.
Failed to record the data because the server is too busy or doesn't have write permission.

Line 192/datasavecsv.cls.php is this:
if( ! rename( $this->output_file, $newname ) ) {

writeErrorLog( 'Failed to archive ' . $this->output_file . ' to:', $newname );
$this->errors[] = array( 'err' => _T('Failed to archive data file.') );
return false;
}


The rest of the erros where it calls /ta2web1.com/ .. is unkown to me why it added the 1 in there.

This is one of my forms that I am trying to fix: http://www.ta2web.com/contact/
Thank you

Make sure you removed only the part necessary. I tested on a form and it worked for me.

I'm pretty sure I did .. This is the actual line of code:

"rules":{"contact_name":{"label":"Your Name","fieldtype":"text","required":true,"maxlength":"50","messages":"Your name is required."},"contact_website":{"url":true,"label":"Your Website (Optional)","fieldtype":"url","maxlength":"45","required":false},"contact_email":{"email":true,"label":"Your Email Address","fieldtype":"email","equalTo":"email16_verification","label_equal":"Please Confirm Your Email Address","required":true,"maxlength":"45","messages":"You must provide a valid Email address."},"attached_file":{"label":"Attach a File If Needed (jpg, png, gif, txt, pdf, zip) 5Mb max.","accept":"txt|rtf|jpg|jpeg|png|gif|zip|pdf","files":true,"attach":true,"database":false,"maxbytes":5120000,"fieldtype":"fileupload","messages":"You must use a proper file format to upload."},"contact_message":{"label":"Enter Your Message ...","fieldtype":"textarea","maxlength":"500","required":true},"recaptcha":{"captcha":"manual","public_key":"89525hwh aw98a89tthta87","private_key":"a8we96aw8we86a8a9e6a 96aia9a97","theme":"clean","messages":"Human proof was incorrect.","fieldtype":"captcha"}},


Note: the comma's .. ?

this is the what I removed:

"recaptcha":{"captcha":"manual","public_key":"akjgfsaf78saf876af8asv7ysvchsds96va","private_key":"kjaghd8ga6g897g6a89g8adgyuygvafg789agv789fd","theme":"clean","messages":"Human proof was incorrect.","fieldtype":"captcha"}

I just tested your form and it seems to have a csv write permission error. Your form is fairly simple, so why don't your redo it without the recaptcha?

Yes it does .. it seems to want to use ta2web1.com in there and I don't know why.

Yes this is a simple form. But the other two are not. So, if I can make this simple one work as it once did, I can make the other two work by manually pulling out the recaptcha code.
Thank you
