Joomla 2.5 - The Recaptcha plugin has vanished

Joomla 2.5 - The Recaptcha plugin has vanished

recatpcha-logoHas Joomla!’s ReCaptcha stopped working?
Yes – Google has changed its servers’ addresses, and version 2.5.16 was released before these changes could be entered in the Joomla! code.

We can fix it in just a few short steps!


Open the file plugins/captcha/recaptcha/recaptcha.php (make a backup first).

  • At line 24, replace
    const RECAPTCHA_API_SERVER = "http://api.recaptcha.net";
    with
    const RECAPTCHA_API_SERVER = "http://www.google.com/recaptcha/api";
  • At line 26, replace
    const RECAPTCHA_VERIFY_SERVER = "api-verify.recaptcha.net";
    
    with
    const RECAPTCHA_VERIFY_SERVER = "www.google.com";
  • At line 118, replace
    $response = $this->_recaptcha_http_post(self::RECAPTCHA_VERIFY_SERVER, "/verify",
    
    with
    $response = $this->_recaptcha_http_post(self::RECAPTCHA_VERIFY_SERVER, "/recaptcha/api/verify",
    

Save the file.
This problem will be fixed in the next Joomla update.
