Joomla! version: 2.5.18

Good morning,

I have 2 problems with BF Survey Plus.

1. I want to use Captcha. I have installed reCaptcha , I have choose it as default, I use public and private key, my joomla version is 2.5.18 but when I choose to use captcha in BF Survey Plus is not showing and I receive an error message when I try to pass 1st page of survey.
In other extention (Fox contact) reCaptcha working properly.

2. When I try my website in an offline testing environment, I noticed that when it is starting BF Survey, I trying to access google website. What is trying to access ? I ask that because of security reasons.

Thank you

Hi Diamantis,
The main problems I see with ReCaptcha is either the public & private keys are missing, or the site is affected by the ReCaptcha URL change that occurred around the release of Joomla 2.5.16 & 3.2.0, however it is my understanding that this issue was fixed in Joomla 2.5.17.
Is ReCaptcha set as default captcha in your global config?

With regards to the software accessing Google, my first thought is that ReCaptcha is owned by Google so perhaps that is what you are seeing. My other thought is that it might be the Akeeba Liveupdate software which possibly loading something. I know that I haven't written any code that calls Google for any reason. Another thought is maybe your site template is loading JQuery dynamically from Google.

Thank you Tim,

The problem with reCaptcha was that the testing environment wasn't the domain I had register in reCaptcha, so the public and private keys was wrong! I change the registration and everything is ok.

As for google access, I take into consideration that you haven't insert any code, and I will try to find out what's happening using your suggestions.

Thanks again
