Thanks for reopening it!

I do use the extension in production. The normal Google reCaptcha is letting around 100 registrations to go through a day, whereas using reCaptcha v2 is allowing only one every 3 days!

No problem! I hadn't intended to abandon this extension; I've mostly not updated it much because it's working just fine on my own board...

No? My board has 373.11 new users each day and I don't have a single issue with v2

Would it be possible to downgrade your extension to make it work in 3.0.x ?
It would be great to get the option to choose reCaptach2 below reCaptcha option (Installed CAPTCHA plugins) in the admin panel in the same way it works currently for reCaptcha...

:) :geek:
Sorry, I'm afraid I won't be back-porting this extension. I've never made a 3.0.x extension (mostly because of the way it wasn't a modular, neat plug-in system like it is in 3.1.x) so I wouldn't even know how, and it doesn't really make sense to start learning 3.0.x skills now!

See point 6 here: https://www.phpbb.com/extensions/rules- ... ents-rules Thats the reason why it was marked as ABD, this forum is not ment for releases, and we mark extensions as ABD (That are in the first few pages) if the authors are inactive and the extension is not in queue.

Yup, understood. I always intended to head it towards release in the proper way if it looked like it was proving useful to people. Just got distracted by a full-time Laravel contract, where I didn't want to be doing yet more PHP in the evenings! I'll block out some time this weekend for playing catch-up and moving things along.

Cheers,

Matt

Hi Matt,

just one thing that came into my mind as I looked through your extension. Why do you use a seperate private and public key config values for reCAPTCHA 2? AFAIK they are the same as from the old reCAPTCHA. So why don't you use them?

Just on "Delete data" you shouldn't delete the config. :mrgreen:

Interesting idea. I suppose I didn't think too hard about it because I didn't actually have the original reCAPTCHA set up while I was working on it. I'll consider it--wonder if it might be better just to copy existing keys on install, if I can see them? That would mean the user wouldn't have to type them in again, but would still keep my extension code as standalone as possible...

I've not done much work on it since last week, if that's what you mean, but I'm planning on trying to progress it though to the next stage of extension-hood this weekend, as well as merging in another translation.

Thanks! I've pulled that into the Github repository and it'll be in the next release.

I installed it about 3 days ago. I noticed that phpBB does come with the simple reCaptcha, which i guess may be v1?

Anyway, since ive switched from the Q&A Captcha to this, i got two spammers today. So, it appears it isnt very affective.

reCAPTCHA v1 is deprecated
However, (...) today’s Artificial Intelligence technology can solve even the most difficult variant of distorted text at 99.8% accuracy. Thus distorted text, on its own, is no longer a dependable test.

It still beats v1, but if Q&A was working for you, why switch? ;)
