TOPIC: Captcha disappeared from contact us after J3.6.5

Captcha disappeared from contact us after J3.6.5 31 Dec 2016 10:26 #9827

JF Couda Template, Joomla 3.6.5, PHP 5.6.21

After updating to Joomla 3.6.5 this morning, the captcha no longer appears on my contact us form. When I try to send an email anyway, I get an error message that the captcha field cannot be empty. Everything is enabled and configured and worked fine up until the Joomla update.

The captcha appears and works fine when I switch to Protostar template. When I switch back to JF Couda, captcha vanishes into thin air.

I am using the default simple contact form.

Is anyone having a similar problem? Has anyone discovered a solution? I was supposed to go live with this website today....

I see the captcha works fine on your contact page.

After waiting a few days without an answer, I fixed it myself with a hack that I am very unhappy about. Since I was under external pressure to get the site online, I simply deleted the lines 29-31 in the default_form.php.
<?php if ($fieldset->name === 'captcha' && !$captchaEnabled) : ?>
<?php continue; ?>
<?php endif; ?>

I was hoping someone might have a real fix for the problem.

You have to recreate override contact component for J3.6.5.
