Hi Crosstec Support,

I am on a Pro subscription and am running BreezingForms Pro 1.9.0 on a Joomla v3.9.1 site. For the last few months, I've always updated BreezingForms through the respective update functionality within Joomla.

Now I wanted to switch from Captcha to ReCaptcha on one of the forms due to spam that gets through. However, ReCaptcha does not show as an available form element.

Scanning your forums, I tripped over an example of code ( crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...ps-to-recaptcha.html ) which mentions "bfReCaptchaDiv" in file BFQuickMode.php. However, my BFQuickMode.php does not contain a single reference to any "ReCaptcha" stuff whatsoever.

My current assumption is that the update function did not work properly at some stage in the past and I might be running an incomplete/inconsistent version of BreezingForms.

What is your suggestion to fix the issue w/o losing any of the existing forms?

Thanks in advance and kind regards,
Pete

Hello,

First of all, I have to ask, are your forms created in EasyMode or QuickMode?

Since EasyMode + ClassicMode are Legacy modes and will be completely left out in the upcoming versions of BF all forms should be rebuilt in QuickMode. Check that before doing an update.

Please try to install the latest BreezingForms version as follows.

Go to Crosstec > My Account > My Downloads and download the BreezingForms package. You must unzip the initial Breezing Forms download file before you start. In extensions folder you'll see com_breezingforms_*version*.zip.

Then go to Joomla > Extension > Manage > Install > Upload Package, select the com_breezingforms_*version*.zip and that is it. The latest version should be installed and you should see the ReCaptcha element.

Let me know whether this helped.

Regards,

Mihaela

Hi Mihaela,

thank you for your swift feedback and apologies for my late answer.

I have tried to create a new form in Quick mode and realize that reCaptcha is available in this mode. So this problem is solved, thank you!

But actually, I had created all my forms in classic mode. Your answer implicates that I will have to manually re-create all the forms in Quick mode, then? That would be quite a piece of work! And as far as I see, the layout options in Quick mode are far more limited than in classic mode.

Kind regards,
Peter

Hello,

I'm glad that ReCaptcha problem is solved.

The answer to your question is yes, I suggest that you re-create all the forms in Quick mode. Quickmode offers even more than EasyMode and you should have no problems in rebuilding your form, even though it could take a lot of time, unfortunately.

Here is a little Quickmode tutorial :


Best regards,
