This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

BuddyPress reCAPTCHA


This Plugin integrates the Google reCAPTCHA Service Modul in the BuddyPress Template Page ‘register.php’. The file is located in ‘/wp-content/themes/{name}/registration/register.php’. The plugin adds the new feature by adding an action on ‘bp_before_registration_submit_buttons’. Therefore the ‘register.php’ must contain the line ‘do_action( ‘bp_before_registration_submit_buttons’ )’. My one was generated with the famous plugin BuddyPress Template Pack. It makes a normal WordPress-Template ready for use with BuddyPress. The missing files in the template will be added.

Some Features

  • not yet, the plugin has no admin-page, but it will follow
  • at the beginning of the ‘bp-recaptcha.php’ are some variables to add/change the reCAPTCHA Api keys, style of reCAPTCHA, language and texts


  • English, but can be switched very simple

Notice: The installation of this plugin will require additional work. Edit the ‘bp-recaptcha.php’ file to make your settings.

  1. Upload the ‘bp-recaptcha’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress.
