Basic reCaptcha field: asking/appearing in my form twice

    Asked on March 14, 2018 at 11:49 AM

    I have a JotForm embedded in my website at I used the Jotform for Wordpress plug-in to do the embed. This form includes a reCaptcha.

    After submitting the form, a second reCaptcha appears. After clicking this 2nd reCaptcha, the form submits.

    I've tried using an iFrame, but it doesn't work well with my site design. Can you tell me how to use an embed in my site and have it not show a 2nd captcha? Thank you,

    That worked great, thank you!

    I got to the incorrect reCaptcha via the standard captcha widget under the Basic menu. Perhaps the reCapcha option in the standard widget can be removed, so it doesn't lead other people astray?

    Thank you again for your quick help!

    I created a new form to test it further and I was able to replicate the issue. I will forward this to our developers so they can further investigate it.
