A spam protector and form field using the new Google's reCAPTCHA 2 aka No Captcha.



  • Download the module from here
  • Extract the downloaded archive into your site root so that the destination folder is called nocaptcha, opening the extracted folder should contain _config.php in the root along with other files/folders
  • Run dev/build?flush=all to regenerate the manifest

If you prefer you may also install using composer:

composer require undefinedoffset/silverstripe-nocaptcha

After installing the module via composer or manual install you must set the spam protector to NocaptchaProtector, this needs to be set in your site's config file normally this is mysite/_config/config.yml.

    default_spam_protector: NocaptchaProtector


There are multiple configuration options for the field, you must set the site_key and the secret_key which you can get from the reCAPTCHA page. These configuration options must be added to your site's yaml config typically this is mysite/_config/config.yml.

    site_key: "YOUR_SITE_KEY" #Your site key (required)
    secret_key: "YOUR_SECRET_KEY" #Your secret key (required)
    verify_ssl: true #Allows you to disable php-curl's SSL peer verification by setting this to false (optional, defaults to true)
    default_theme: "light" #Default theme color (optional, light or dark, defaults to light)
    default_type: "image" #Default captcha type (optional, image or audio, defaults to image)
    default_size: "normal" #Default size (optional, normal or compact, defaults to normal)
    proxy_server: "" #Your proxy server address (optional)
    proxy_auth: "" #Your proxy server authentication information (optional)

Adding field labels

If you want to add a field label or help text to the Captcha field you can do so like this:

    ->setTitle("Spam protection")
    ->setDescription("Please tick the box to prove you're a human and help us stop spam.");
