Solved: ReCaptcha V2 for Joomla 1.5 + RSForm Pro

Solved: ReCaptcha V2 for Joomla 1.5 + RSForm Pro

Since Google has phased out old recaptcha (v1), some of our clients reported that their old Joomla 1.5 installs are suffering - getting spammed, now that they no longer have a decent captcha available.  While we realize that Joomla 1.5 sites should be upgraded to the latest version, not all clients are willing, or able to afford this.  

The solution is to download the ZIP file attached to this post (see below) and overwrite your two existing files here:

  • /plugins/system/relib.php
  • /plugins/system/rsfprecaptcha.php

Once you get to this step, refreshing the form should give you an "Invalid API Key" error instead of the old V1 system. 

Last, all you need to do is sign into the admin panel and go to Components -> RSForm Pro -> Configuration and enter your new "V2" API keys on the ReCaptcha tab.  

Done!
