reCaptcha Field

Caldera Forms Banner

reCaptcha fields were moved to the discontinued category in Caldera Forms 1.3.5. They are no longer functional, but are maintained as to not effect existing form layouts. There is a 3rd-party add-on for Caldera Forms anti-spam that provides a reCaptcha field. Or you can use Caldera Forms Pro for anti-spam. Note that Pro has advanced anti-spam, click here for more info.

We removed reCaptacha funtionality for the following reasons:

  • Our default anti-spam is more effective. It’s all we use and we have no reports of any problems with spam when only relying on our anti-spam.
  • Captchas are bad for conversions. You want humans to fill out your forms. We’ve already dealt with bots.
  • Our reCaptacha fields required loading additional JavaScript from a 3rd-party source. That’s bad for page load times.
  • Captchas add time to processing the form. Why slow your form down for no reason?
