Recaptcha Doesn't Show in the Form


The Recaptcha has been enabled to the General Options. But the instruction is quite confusing. It said that to add the shortcode on the Pro Form. As I check on the Pro Form, this shows It seems the shortcode was already there however there’s no recaptcha on our registration form. See:

Please let me know how to properly enable recaptcha plase as we receive a lot of spam emails.

Thank you,


My first thought is did you configure reCaptcha in the s2Member general options: “CAPTCHA Anti-Spam Security”?

If you did, then your style option would be limited to captcha= ‘light’ or ‘dark’. Try one of these and see if you are good to go.

Hi @maria - s2member does not place a captcha on the default registration page. You would need to install an additional plugin that offers that feature. s2member just offers recaptcha on private pages and within s2member forms.

If you have a recaptcha shortcode and nothing is being displayed, check that you have registered with Google for recaptcha credentials which you need for your recaptcha to operate.
