ReCaptchaV2 (version 3.x) integrates V2 AND V3 of Google's ReCaptcha service into MODX as a FormIt hook.

It can also be used with the Login Extra as a preHook, as of version 1.0.0

Version 2+ updates the base Google Recaptcha class to the latest 1.1.2, including autoloading and cURL support.

You must generate API keys for your domain here: and enter them into the System Settings before you can use ReCaptchaV2. NOTE: You must choose V2 or V3 in the ReCaptcha admin, when generating your client keys. You can use both on a single MODX install with this Extra—there are separate system settings for V2 and V3.

You will also need to call the accompanying form element renderer snippet somewhere in your html form, for example:

<div class="form-item">

As of 2.3+, you can use the "Invisible Recaptcha" implementation:

<form id="login-form">

In this usage, the "recaptchav2_invisible_html" Chunk renders a button with the necessary data attributes to trigger ReCaptcha. NOTE: the JavaScript implementation in the Chunk requires the &form_id to be defined.

The render snippet may or may not be usable as a preHook for FormIt at this time. NOTE: you can customize the behaviour of your ReCaptcha implementation, in accordance with Google's developer documentation, by customizing the Chunks used for rendering. You can specify any Chunk in the &tpl property of the "recaptchav{n}_render" Snippets.

This Extra is maintained in Github: Bug reports, comments and suggestions welcome.
