ReCaptcha has been a very handy tool for websites and applications since years now. Its one of the best anti-spam solutions available on the web. Thanks to Joomla 3.0 , where ReCaptcha is pre-built now.

For previous versions of Joomla, we had to install 3rd party plugins to get ReCaptcha. Here is how to set it up and configure.

  • Login to Joomla Admin Backend
  • Goto Global Configuration > Site Tab > Captcha . Select ReCaptcha from the drop down.
  • Goto Plugin Manager and search for recaptcha. It will list the ReCaptcha Plugin. Edit it.

  • Click on Details Tab and make sure the status STATUS is active.
  • Click the Basic Options tab. Fill in the Public Key and Private Key, which you can get by registering your site here.
  • In order to make sure, its working fine, check frontend registration page.
