Plugin - hCaptcha (Spam protection)

Protect your webistes with the latest captcha integration released by our developers team, precisely hCaptcha. Similar to the second version of Google's antispam solution, reCaptcha v2, hCaptcha is an alternative solution which proves to be quite effective.

Downloading and Installing the plugin
Download

You can download the plugin by logging with your purchase user, then head to Downloads > Paid Downloads > RSForm!Pro > Modules & Plugins > "hCaptcha".


Install

In the backend of your Joomla! installation go to Extensions > Manage > Install, and upload and install the plugin. Next thing would be to check if the plugin is published, and to do so, navigate to Extensions > Plugins, search for the "System - RSForm! Pro hCaptcha" plugin and ensure it is published.

After installing and enabling the plugin you will see, in ComponentsRSForm!ProConfiguration that a new tab was added, hCaptcha:

Three configuration parameters are required:

  • Site Key: You can get this by registering your domain on the hCaptcha account
  • Secret Key: You can get this by registering your domain on the hCaptcha account
  • Language: Auto (Detected by hCaptcha) / Site (Joomla! language) - Choose the language used for the antispam method.

You can create an account for this anti-spam solution on the official hCaptcha website.
