Not working in J5

Posted on 05 February 2024
Doesn't work in J5. After installing,enabling and configuring the Contact component to use it, not visible in contact form.
Ease of use
Nothing to say because I'm not able to force the plug-in to work.
I used this to: own website which bases on freshly installed J5, where the native contact form must be secured due to spam coming through it.
The plugin allows you to connect reCAPTCHA v3. There are also several options in the plugin settings.
Ease of use
I am an experienced user and therefore it only took me 3-5 minutes to set up the plugin. Even taking into account receiving keys from Google
I did not contact the developer's technical support. There was no need for this.
I wasn't looking for documentation. There was no need for this.The plugin is very easy to use.
I used this to: Protecting the contact form and registration form from spam on the Joomla 5 website.
