I have now just confirmed your observation.

The token {META} is probably missing from the <head> of template.html in your custom theme. There should be a call to load the remote .js in the <head>. It is missing, along with the other Coppermine <head> meta fields.

Yep, loads of stuff is missing from the head of your theme. You need the following

Code: [Select]
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://api.recaptcha.net/js/recaptcha_ajax.js"></script></head>

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

I have CP1.4.27 installed will this plugin work on my install?  the readme says it works with 1.4.25.  My site is http://www.angelkittygang.com/coppermine/login.php  Will this plugin stop bots from sending registration requests?

Thanks

It should work just fine with 1.4.27.

For your second question....
reCAPTCHA is a popular and powerful system to stop spam bots.

It appears to be working and for registrations, just as I needed, right out of the box!

Thanks

I have reinstalled this due to upgrade to 14.27 and it works I just want to verify that I did this part right:

to not show the recaptcha for admins and registered users I edited the section you stated by removing Guests and writing in Administrators,Registered

did I do that right?

this way the only ones to see the required recaptcha are guests wishing to register...right?

The instruction in recaptcha_config.php says it all......

Set which USER group should NOT see Captcha on each page

it looks like you have enabled it for login and also your theme might be interfering with the display.
