ReCaptcha causing False Positives in Spam folder (2 posts)

    Just noticed that the reCAPTCHA plugin was sending all comments to the spam folder. I deactivated it and all is back to normal. Was running plugin version 2.9.6 sitewide in mu-plugins folder.

    This is a known issue corrected in version 2.9.7

    So the answer is to update the plugin. I am just posting here for reference by others who might go to the forums before checking for updates... because I'm a helpful guy.

    Thanks for this. To be honest, reCaptcha is known to be machine readable while having problems with real folks behind certain types of proxies. For example I can't use it on the library network I'm currently on. We've seen some Comcast users who have had problems previous as well.

    You may want to search the forums for discussion on this.
