Problem with Captcha

6.28K viewsIssues

HI Guys, I keep getting the message “please recheck your captcha and try again” when submitting an answer on the site


Can you help me troubleshoot?  Ive triple checked our captcha keys and they are correct.  If I disable the captcha then I can answer, but the Q&A is prone to a bunch of spam..



which version?

What is your PHP version?

PHP Version 5.3.29

@memorex ~ You realise that php 5.3 is 2012 ? (5.3.7 Feb 2012)…..

Getting ssl error in php error log. Will check.

Sorry it took so long to respond, we are running PHP version 5.4.41 (64bit)

Can you show us your error log right after posting a question?

can you tell me where to find the error log?

maybe you can try for yourself. Try submitting a new question at The captcha just says failed.

hi Ryan, In the Debugger I am getting this:

ferecaptcha__en.js:1604TypeError: null is not an object (evaluating ‘a.lastElementChild’)
(anonymous function)recaptcha__en.js:8560:264
(anonymous function)
(anonymous function)recaptcha__en.js:602


I have the same problem with version 2.4.1
