reCaptcha requires allow_url_open to be on,
Just for clarity to anyone reading this: The reCAPTCHA v3 plug-in for phpBB 3.3.1 and later will happily work without allow_url_open enabled.
But the default setting for the reCAPTCHA v3 plug-in wants to use "POST" method, which would require allow_url_open to be enabled.
And the problem, for which a phpBB bug now exists
, is that when the allow_url_open function is not enabled, the reCAPTCHA v3 plug-in continues to try and default to "POST" anyway.
Visiting the reCATCHA v3 plug-in configuration and choosing one of the other available methods besides "POST" will allow the reCAPTCHA v3 plug-in to succeed, even without allow_url_open enabled.
Future versions of phpBB should not allow the default "POST" method to remain selected during configuration when allow_url_open is not enabled.
