How to Install Google reCaptcha Spam Blocker

By default your forms will use our integrated spam blocker captcha tool to help block bots from filling out your forms. Alternatively you can use Google's reCaptcha spam blocker.

Requirements:

  • Google Account
  • SiteApex Admin Access

Creating your Google reCaptcha API keys

  1. While logged in to your Google account go to https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin and fill out the form.
  2. Label: Enter your website domain name or organization name.
  3. Select: reCAPTCHA V2
  4. Domains: Enter your website domain name.
  5. Accept the reCAPTCHA Terms of Service and click "Register".
  6. You will then get a set of "keys" - Site Key and a Secret Key. You will need both of these for the next steps.

Setting up Google reCaptcha in SiteApex

Setting Up Google reCaptcha in SiteApex

  1. To enable Google reCaptcha log in to your SiteApex Admin and go to Control Panel and Settings.
  2. Enable it.
  3. Fill in the Site Key and a Secret Key provided by Google from the previous steps.
  4. Choose any design options you want then click "Save Settings" at the bottom of the Settings area.
  5. Next you must publish the site after saving to update your forms. You can publish your whole site by going to the Recycle Bin and clicking "Full Publish".

Once the site is published, any Form Builder forms that have a spam blocker enabled will automatically be switched to use Google reCAPTCHA.

Things to note:

  • With any 3rd party tool we have no control over sudden changes. If this occurs we will do our best to ensure compatibility.
  • Currently this is only on the main form builder displays. Mini Form plugins will continue to use the default spam blocker
  • We have no control over how the widgets appear other than a couple minor display settings
  • reCAPTCHA has a few analytic metrics to report limited usage stats on. You can view these back where you set up the reCaptcha keys here: https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin
