    May not be the right pace to post this but couldn’t think of a better place since is v2 related.

    I have 2-3 community-focused sites in the works. I plan to use GD v2 (since it’s so close to full release).

    Payments Manager and Claim Manager are the two add-ons holding things up for go live but can launch these communities as “beta” until those two add-ons are ready for production.

    But one thing holding up a live pre-release beta is locking down public-facing / user-facing forms with Google reCaptcha.

    So I’m looking for the BEST “no additional cost” way to implement Google reCaptcha on ALL key user-facing forms:

    • GDv2 forms
    • Buddy Press
    • UsersWP
    • Login / Register
    • Comments / Ratings
    • WooCommerce
    • Contact / Subscribe Forms (not just Ninja Forms)
    • Member / User Guest Posting
    • etc.

    Since these sites are not monetized at present, the suggestions need to reference solutions that do not require purchasing additional premium plugins or memberships.

    Suggestions? Advice?

    Hi Craig,

    We will be providing solutions for our own products, most likely they will remain paid.
    If these sites are your own sites then your membership covers you for them anyway?

    Hi Stiofan, thanks for taking a minute to reply.
    Yes, these are sites I own, so yes I can get via membership.

    Thing is it seems that multiple reCaptcha plugins are needed since each one only addresses certain front-end forms. Was really hoping to simplify and reduce number of plugins … which helps to reduce potential conflicts, possible security issues, speed up site, etc. Plus, there is the additional costs of multiple premium plugins.

    Any suggestions / recommendations of a good way to simplify and minimize cost?
