Hi,

My registration form is being handled by k2 as I'm using K2 user module. I'm using social network plugin from emediacom. Whenever a user registers he will get an error message ""could not pass verification code" because of Google recaptcha on the form.

I cannot use invisible captcha such as Google invisible recaptcha or Hashcash because in k2 settings I cannot set them.

If the registration form wasn't control by k2 then, it would be simple to choose whatever captcha in Joomla User Options.

P.S. other issues is that am getting a lot of spam registrations even though "security preference" is set to "Most secure" in Google recaptcha console. Moderators on Joomla forum said it's better to use captchas like Hashcash.

Any work around ?

You can use K2's reCaptcha integration for starters.

Am not sure I got your point.

Is it an extension on it's own ? A link ?

I haven't got any luck in finding captcha for k2 in Joomla extension directory and K2 extension directory.

K2 has built-in integration with reCaptcha for years now, before anyone at Joomla even knew what reCaptcha is... See K2's settings.

"K2 has built-in integration with reCaptcha for years now," >>> yes I know

My point is recaptha is not doing a great job actually because am getting spam users registering. These spammers are even activating their accounts through activation emails they receive.

You can also enable StopForumSpam which is used exactly for this purpose.
