    Recaptcha shows numbers on the live form and words on the formbuilder

    Asked by PhotoHendriks on January 06, 2015 at 03:03 AM

    On my website, reCaptcha brings up and image with a number.

    In the backend when I am building the form it displays two words.

    The latter is my preference as I find I still get a lot of junk coming through with the former. What is the deal?

    Cheers,

    David

    I see what you mean involving the catpcha showing as two words on the formbuilder which instead then displays only numbers on the live jotform.

    As far as I last knew it was showing the two-word puzzle combinations awhile back. However, To my knowledge we had switched this on the live form to resemble numbers because it is far less predicable by spambots which has been that way for quite some time now. Although I do understand where that could lead to some degree of confusion and we do apologize about it.
