Markup Google reCAPTCHA

9 posts in this topic


Google reCAPTCHA for ProcessWire.

This module simply adds reCAPTCHA to your form.



How To Install

  1. Download the zip file at Github or clone directly the repo into your site/modules
  2. If you dowloaded the zip file, extract it in your sites/modules directory
  3. Goto the modules admin page, click on refresh and install it.

Official install/uninstall doc:



You must create an API key prior to use this module. Goto to create your own. Next, add the API keys information to the module's settings.




  1. Call the module : $captcha = $modules->get("MarkupGoogleRecaptcha");
  2. Call $captcha->getScript(); somewhere to get the javascript used by reCAPTCHA
  3. Render reCAPTCHA in a standard HTML <form></form> by calling $captcha->render() or Render reCAPTCHA in an InputfieldForm by passing as argument your form to the render function: $captcha->render($form)
  4. Call verifyResponse() to get the result. It return TRUE if the challenge was successfull.



  • Using ProcessWire's form API :
$out = '';

$captcha = $modules->get("MarkupGoogleRecaptcha");
// if submitted, check response
if ($captcha->verifyResponse() === true)
    $out .= "Hi " . $input->post["name"].", thanks for submitting the form!";
    $form = $modules->get("InputfieldForm");
    $form->action = $page->url;
    $form->method = "post";
    $form->attr("id+name", "form");

    $field = $this->modules->get('InputfieldText');
    $field->name = "name";
    $field->placeholder = "name";

    // CAPTCHA - our form as argument, the function will add an InputfieldMarkup to our form

    // add a submit button
    $submit = $this->modules->get("InputfieldSubmit");
    $submit->name = "submit";
    $submit->value = 'Submit';

    $out .= $form->render();

    // include javascript 
    $out .= $captcha->getScript();

echo $out;


  • Example using plain HTML Form :
$captcha = $modules->get("MarkupGoogleRecaptcha");
// if submitted check response
if ($captcha->verifyResponse() === true) {
	$out .= "Hi " . $input->post["name"] . ", thanks for submitting the form!";
} else {
	$out .= "<form method='post' action='{$page->url}'>\n"
         . "\t<input type='text' name='name'>\n"
         . $captcha->render() // render reCaptcha
         . "\t<input type='submit'>\n"
         . "</form>\n";

	$out .= $captcha->getScript();

echo $out;

Parse Error: syntax error, unexpected '[' (line 6 of /var/www/vhosts/

This error message was shown because: site is in debug mode. ($config->debug = true; => /site/config.php). Error has been logged.

Looks like you're running PHP 5.3 on the live system. You could fix this error by replacing the short array notation [...] used throughout the module with its verbose notation as array(...), but you should really think of switching to a more current PHP release.

I have a pull-request for this module, pull-request adding multi language support to reCAPTCHA and multiple usage on one page. You can see usage on screenshot.

For set reCAPTCHA language, (reCAPTCHA Language Codes) :

<?php if(modules()->isInstalled('MarkupGoogleRecaptcha')) { echo modules()->MarkupGoogleRecaptcha->render($lang = "en"); }; ?>

For multiple reCAPTCHA usage, after all form render, call multiple usage script :

<?php if(modules()->isInstalled('MarkupGoogleRecaptcha')) { echo modules()->MarkupGoogleRecaptcha->getScriptMulti(); }; ?>

Good day!

Thank you @flydev for the very useful module and @ukyo for making it possible to have multiple instances of reCAPCHA on the same page.

I am having just that: two forms on the same page both with reCAPCHA via the module. Both work using jQuery ajax. After an unsuccessful call I get response with error messages. Right here I need to reset reCAPCHA like described here in the JavaScript API section. But as I have two instances of reCAPCHA on the page I need to explicitly specify the opt_widget_id option. Is there a way to I get it with the module?

You have an option, don't call getScriptMulti(); function.

<?php if(modules()->isInstalled('MarkupGoogleRecaptcha')) { echo modules()->MarkupGoogleRecaptcha->getScriptMulti(); }; ?>

Write your own javascript by referencing getScriptMulti(); function.

    public function getScriptMulti() {
        $return = "<script type=\"text/javascript\">
                    var onloadReCaptchaCallback = function(){
                        jQuery('.g-recaptcha').each(function() {
                            var _this = jQuery(this);
                            var recaptchaID ='id'),
                                hl ='hl'),
                                sitekey ='sitekey'),
                                theme ='theme'),
                                type ='type'),
                                size ='size'),
                                index ='index');
                            if(recaptchaID !== undefined) {
                                var recaptchaWidget = grecaptcha.render(recaptchaID, {
                                    'hl' : hl,
                                    'sitekey' : sitekey,
                                    'theme' : theme,
                                    'type' : type,
                                    'size' : size,
                                    'index' : index
                                // grecaptcha.reset(recaptchaWidget);
        $return .= "<script src='".self::SITE_RECAPTCHA_API_URL."?onload=onloadReCaptchaCallback&render=explicit' async defer></script>";

        return $return;

      just stumbled over a little module that i built for my last project. it helped me to test performance of my rockdatatables module to generate 3000 random json datasets and i want to share it with you. maybe it saves some time for someone.
      easy example:
      $rdd = $modules->get('RockDummyData'); for($i=0; $i<15; $i++) { // this has to be inside the for-loop to always get a new dummy $dummy = $rdd->getDummy(); echo date("d.m.Y H:i:s", $dummy->timestamp) . "<br>"; } more advanced:
      $json = new stdClass(); $json->data = array(); $rdd = $modules->get('RockDummyData'); for($i=0; $i<3000; $i++) { // this has to be inside the for-loop to always get a new dummy $dummy = $rdd->getDummy(); $obj = new stdClass(); $obj->name = $dummy->forename . ' ' . $dummy->surname; $obj->position = $dummy->job; $obj->office = $dummy->city; $obj->color = $dummy->color; $obj->start_date = new stdClass(); $obj->start_date->display = date('d.m.Y',$dummy->timestamp); $obj->start_date->sort = $dummy->timestamp; $obj->salary = rand(0,10000); $json->data[] = $obj; } echo json_encode($json); you have to store your random datasets on your own into the /data folder. there are several services for creating all kinds of random data on the web - if you know one service that allows sharing those datasets let me know and i can include common needed data into the module

      I need your assistance please. I purchased the module FormBuilder. Unfortunately, the module discontinued delivering customer submissions to e-mail box specified in the module settings. Direct mailing to the e-mail box works OK. The module settings stays the same and are correct, like "Send e-mail to administrator(s) is checked. The last version of FormBuilder 3.0 has been installed. Please advise how to resolve the issue becase I cannot get orders from customers anymore (((

      As described in this post ( the option 'Name Format Children' under the tab 'Family' in template settings doesn't work properly and also not as expected. I had a look inside the code and made some changes which are working properly, which offers much more options, more consistency and less code too.

      The result is the following. You have 3 Options for generating name and title, which could be combined in endless variations.
      Name is always derived from title, same like creating pages manually.
      type date: if function detects # character anywhere in the string, conversion will be: deletion of # and string will be used as format parameter for PHP date() function type field: if string is a fieldname of the parent page the value of this field will be used type string: if string doesn't fit to the 2 preceeding it will be taken as it is All parts (separated by comma) will be composed in the order of setting. You can use unlimited numbers of parts

      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup and InputfieldRuntimeMarkup
      Modules Directory:
      This module allows for custom markup to be dynamically (PHP) generated and output within a page's edit screen (in Admin).
      The value for the fieldtype is generated at runtime. No data is saved in the database. The accompanying InputfieldRuntimeMarkup is only used to render/display the markup in the page edit screen.
      The field's value is accessible from the ProcessWire API in the frontend like any other field, i.e. it has access to $page and $pages.
      The module was commissioned/sponsored by @Valan. Although there's certainly other ways to achieve what this module does, it offers a dynamic and flexible alternative to generating your own markup in a page's edit screen whilst also allowing access to that markup in the frontend. Thanks Valan!
      Although access to ProcessWire's Fields' admin pages is only available to Superusers, this Fieldtype will evaluate and run the custom PHP Code entered and saved in the field's settings (Details tab). Utmost care should therefore be taken in making sure your code does not perform any CRUD operations!! (unless of course that's intentional) The value for this fieldtype is generated at runtime and thus no data is stored in the database. This means that you cannot directly query a RuntimeMarkup field from $pages->find(). Usage and API
      Enter your custom PHP snippet in the Details tab of your field (it is RECOMMENDED though that you use wireRenderFile() instead. See example below). Your code can be as simple or as complicated as you want as long as in the end you return a value that is not an array or an object or anything other than a string/integer.
      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup has access to $page (the current page being edited/viewed) and $pages. 
      A very simple example.
      return 'Hello'; Simple example.
      return $page->title; Simple example with markup.
      return '<h2>' . $page->title . '</h2>'; Another simple example with markup.
      $out = '<h1>hello '; $out .= $page->title; $out .= '</h1>'; return $out; A more advanced example.
      $p = $pages->get('/about-us/')->child('sort=random'); return '<p>' . $p->title . '</p>'; An even more complex example.
      $str =''; if($page->name == 'about-us') { $p = $page->children->last(); $str = "<h2><a href='{$p->url}'>{$p->title}</a></h2>"; } else { $str = "<h2><a href='{$page->url}'>{$page->title}</a></h2>"; } return $str; Rather than type your code directly in the Details tab of the field, it is highly recommended that you placed all your code in an external file and call that file using the core wireRenderFile() method. Taking this approach means you will be able to edit your code in your favourite text editor. It also means you will be able to type more text without having to scroll. Editing the file is also easier than editing the field. To use this approach, simply do:
      return wireRenderFile('name-of-file');// file will be in /site/templates/ If using ProcessWire 3.x, you will need to use namespace as follows:
      return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('name-of-file'); How to access the value of RuntimeMarkup in the frontend (our field is called 'runtime_markup')
      Access the field on the current page (just like any other field)
      echo $page->runtime_markup; Access the field on another page
      echo $pages->get('/about-us/')->runtime_markup; Screenshots
