Captacha is not showing up in visual editor

1 (talkcontribs)

I enbaled the captcha 'nocaptcha' on edit page for anonymous user. It works for standard edit, but it doesn't with the visual editor. In fact the captcha is not displayed but it also impossible to save (error is thrown)

recaptcha nocaptcha being bypassed?

2604:880:64:2B3:8000:0:0:1000 (talkcontribs)

Does nocaptcha still work with confirmedit for stopping spam? It shows up and works when I test it but, I am getting a huge influx of spam with it on? I am running 1.28.2 with ConfirmEdit 1.4.0 but just getting smashed by account creations and spam. (talkcontribs)

Same problem. Massive influx of new accounts and spam since the end of April. Was using noCAPTCHA for account creation only, then enabled it for every edit and page creation, but it continues. My only recourse has been to disable account creation and remove edit/create permissions for every group and create a new group to add known real people to.

Same issue, I turned off nocaptcha and switched to some new custom questy captcha and still getting a huge influx of account creation through. It must be some issue with mediawiki/confirmedit that they can bypass everything

I'm using it with MW 1.27. (talkcontribs)

and it is working? or it isnt?

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

Sorry. I should have said it is working.

Just re-verified that it is working to stop logins. It shows up for ConfirmAccount, but the result is ignored.

I am forcing HTTPS, http is redirected

Stefahn (talkcontribs)

Same problem here. I switched from QuestyCaptcha to Recaptcha/Nocaptcha because I thought Recaptcha is easier for users (they can click and don't have to type). But since then I get a lot of fake account creations. I have to switch back to QuestyCaptcha now.

Recaptcha worked fine on preventing spam on Extension:ContactPage however.

captcha appearing when resetting a password

2001:16B8:2ACF:5300:30C1:6B9:B271:8A82 (talkcontribs)

Is it possible to also have captcha appearing when you try to reset the password? Right now it is very easy to reset passwords even in order to reset passwords of other users (for whatever reason). So the question is if it is possible that when you are in Special:UserLogin and click on "forgot password" the captcha is appearing as well before the mail is sent.

Thanks and Kind regards

upgrading to use the latest version of Google reCaptcha

Tansaku (talkcontribs)

ConfirmEdit has been working really well for us, but recently bots are making their way back in. I'm thinking that we need to upgrade to a more recent version of reCaptcha. Is there a standard pathway for achieving this?

Many thanks in advance

Please help. This error accure when trying to Signing up.

I've changed captcha type to RecaptchaNoCapture and double checked security keys from Google. There is no errors on page but captcha also not showing. What else should be updated in mediawiki (in LocalSettings), I've updated it from 1.28 to 1.30 manually? Please help. (talkcontribs)

Any luck here? I'm running into the same issue.

User/Site verify not working - failing Google requirements

2601:646:8481:8584:79CE:D7E2:5C3E:8F9C (talkcontribs)

Env: MW 1.30.0 w/ included ConfirmEdit on a public facing site.

Google reCAPTCHA Dashboard warning: We detected that your site is verifying reCAPTCHA passed solutions less than 50% of the time. This could indicate a problem with your integration with reCAPTCHA. Please see our developer site for more information. (https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/verify#api-request)

Doing some testing on my site it looks as though the extension is not sending the required POST to https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api/siteverify with the required values: secret and response nor with the optional value: remoteip (which was enabled in my environment)

Cant get ConfirmEdit to load

Summary by Epastore

Make sure you're editing the right LocalSettings.php file. Heh.

Epastore (talkcontribs)

Hi. I have tried a few configurations, but ConfirmEdit doesn't seem to load, and Captchas aren't appearing on new account registration. Here is my version page.

ConfirmEdit does not appear; and QuestyCaptcha shows with no version information.

I have tried these different configurations in LocalSettings.php:

wfLoadExtensions([ 'ConfirmEdit', 'ConfirmEdit/QuestyCaptcha' ]);


require_once "$IP/extensions/ConfirmEdit/ConfirmEdit.php";

require_once "$IP/extensions/ConfirmEdit/QuestyCaptcha.php";


wfLoadExtension([ 'ConfirmEdit' ]);

wfLoadExtension([ 'ConfirmEdit/QuestyCaptcha' ]);

On all three tries, my Version page looks the same. I also tried ConfirmEdit for MW 1.29 and 1.27. My MediaWiki version is 1.28.1.

Any ideas what I am missing?

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

The version for 1.28.1 should work with

wfLoadExtensions( [
$wgCaptchaClass = 'QuestyCaptcha';

QuestyCaptcha not showing a version is expected, ConfirmEdit not showing up at all is obviously not.

I assume that you downloaded the tarball for MW 1.28

Epastore (talkcontribs)

Thanks, Kghbin. I have now tried adding the wgCaptchaClass. I also tried a copy/paste of your syntax (with linebreaks) out of an abundance of caution. Still no change. I only see tarballs for 1.27 and 1.29 at Special:ExtensionDistributor/ConfirmEdit but I've tried both with the same result.

It seems really weird that my other extensions are appearing. And that Questy is showing but not ConfirmEdit. I keep looking over, well, everything; and can't see any problem in my config. (File permissions seem fine; no problem with capitalization; no missing files I can identify; etc.) Rrg. Any more ideas?

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

You can currently still download the version for MW 1.28 from GitHub. To tell you the truth: I have no further idea why it is not working for you. You recently changed the script path from "w" to "mw" however this should not really make a difference. You placed the stuff in /mw/extensions/ConfirmEdit, didn't you?

Epastore (talkcontribs)

Argh! I was just starting to figure that out; thank you. Another admin had done a major upgrade, and I did not realize he made a whole new install in a new directory. I was modifying the file in the w directory. Just was noticing that no changes to LocalSettings were working. D'oh!

Thank you for your help!

I am in process of testing an upgrade to MW 1.27.3 with ConfirmEdit reCaptcha set to NoCaptch

Request Account screen shows following text

To help protect against automated account creation, please type the two words you see in the box below:

above the I am Not a Robot check box.

Above text appears to apply to reCaptcha v1. Where is it coming from? I cannot find it in the ConfirmAccount/i18n or in the ConfirmEdit/i18n en.json files

Ken Roy (talkcontribs)

OK, I found that message. It was a residual override to Special:AllMessages before the messages became json files. I have deleted it, but now the message displayed is the ConfirmEdit captcha-createaccount rather than the renocaptcha-createaccount

ConfirmEdit is loaded as follows

wfLoadExtensions([ 'ConfirmEdit', 'ConfirmEdit/ReCaptchaNoCaptcha' ]);

do I need to do anything else to get reCaptchNoCaptcha messages. The I am Not a Robot captcha is being displayed.

I embed images in $wgCaptchaQuestions, thus I need to configure them with HTML.

This worked in MW 1.25, but in broke in MW 1.27 (I see the plain HTML).

CyberXRef (talkcontribs)

We've just upgraded from 1.25 to 1.27 and ConfirmEdit/QuestyCaptcha is indeed broken. It no longer allows HTML in $wgCaptchaQuestions which is critical for proper operation for us.

Zoglun (talkcontribs)

Any update on using image with wgCaptchaQuestions? We use image questions, too. This error preventing us upgrade to MW1.27.

Hutchy68 (talkcontribs)

Yes, I see this too and it needs to be addressed. Do we need a tracker? I'll look now.

Added a bug report, task T169124
