reCaptcha question, please help?

Aug 29, 2012 12:11 PM



I am trying to set up the reCaptcha function on my website and i am having some difficulty understanding some of the setup criteria.


From the way it looks, it seems that I would have to have two actions in my form. This can't be correct is it??


Here is my form:


<form class="required-form" action="" method="post" name"SampleForm">

               <input type="hidden" name="good_url" value="" />

               <input type="hidden" name="env_report" value="REMOTE_HOST,REMOTE_ADDR,HTTP_USER_AGENT,AUTH_TYPE,REMOTE_USER" >    

               <input type="hidden" name="recipients" value="" /> 

               <input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Request A Quote - Webform Mailer">

               <input type="hidden" name="mail_options" value="" />


                <ol class="forms">



                      <label for="name"> Name of Property:</label>

                      <input type="text" name="client_last" id="client_last" class="required" />





                      <label for="client_phone"><em class="required">*</em> Client Phone:</label>

                      <textarea name="message" id="message" ></textarea>





                    <li class="buttons submit">

                      <button type="submit">Submit</button>




                    <li class="buttons reset">

                      <button type="reset">Reset Form</button>








And here is the reCpatcha example from thier website:




    <form action="" method="post">







// Get a key from

$publickey = "";

$privatekey = "";



# the response from reCAPTCHA

$resp = null;

# the error code from reCAPTCHA, if any

$error = null;



# was there a reCAPTCHA response?

if ($_POST["recaptcha_response_field"]) {

        $resp = recaptcha_check_answer ($privatekey,






        if ($resp->is_valid) {

                echo "You got it!";

        } else {

                # set the error code so that we can display it

                $error = $resp->error;



echo recaptcha_get_html($publickey, $error);



    <input type="submit" value="submit" />





Exactly where am I supposed to insert this information? This is what i do not completely understand. Also, as far as the PHP, it says that I will need a php file called verify.php. Am I supposed to create a new file? Or is it possible to add this to my already existing php validation script?


Sorry I am so confused by this, it is my first time setting it up. Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you all so much!
