It helped me with a picky client of mine who was in need of Re-Captcha. Works well. Thanks guys. Keep up the good work, wood have been great if you could develop something to work along with component properties. I'd would be the first who will enjoy but I'm sure there will be a lot of people appreciating your effort. I would even pay for that. Thanks anyways.

I'd give a better rating if I was able to disable the captcha for the logout process. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I was unable to find a means to remove captcha without changing code in the extension.

At any rate it's a moot problem at best. Everything else with this extension is quite easy to manage, it allows enable/disable of captcha on the 5 biggest points.

Easy to install and works fine. You just need two keys you have to ask here:
I just regret that some captcha are too difficult to read, but this seems to depend on google, not on this plugin.

I needed a captcha for our football club-website in Germany to protect the registration page. We are using Joomla 1.5.26. Installation and configuration were done in minutes. Language detection works perfectly. Thank you very much!

Just installed joo ReCaptcha on my https site.
Easy to set up, copied my keys from last captcha which broke site security
and enabled yours.
set the default captcha on template to joo ReCaptcha and all my SSL is
intact. no IE errors and works a treat. I have searched for hours for a
solution with google API changes etc. for code change edits.
Thank you for an out of the tin solution and for the download.
awsome work :-)

In the span of about 2 weeks, I tested out every single 'captcha' plugin worth its salt and every one of them failed - finally I stumbled on to this one. Everything elsed worked well on all other forms except the default login form. This is the only one that worked here.
