April 4, 2019 - JFBConnect v8.1.0 has been released with changes for the LinkedIn Developer Program Updates and miscellaneous bug fixes.
i posted about this problem a few years ago, and wanted to see if you might have found a solution in the meantime (fingers crossed....
i'm using k2 to manage users registration to the site - and due to a massive attack of spam registration i had to enable the recaptcha on the registration form.
the problem is that with the recaptcha enabled, new users can't register with a social network using JFBC. when trying to, they get an error message about not proving they are humans
might there be a solution to this, someway that JFBC can override the registration flow of K2?
otherwise the only solution i see is hiding the social-registration, and only allowing it for already registered users.
if you have any solution (or any idea what can be done), please advise...
We haven't heard of this issue in quite some time and didn't know it was still a problem. I know when we used to hear about it, we'd recommend using the built-in Captcha system of Joomla. From my memory of it, K2 has a captcha field and you can select to use their own captcha or the one that comes with Joomla. When K2 initially launched ~2009, Joomla 1.5 didn't have it's own captcha plugin system available.
Joomla has had captcha built-in for about 9 years now (that's a guess, but close).
Is there a reason you can't or don't want to use the Joomla captcha system? If you try to set it up, does it work (even if you don't prefer to use it)?
Answers to those will help us understand the issue further and help figure out a good way forward.
