In WP TOTAL theme, upgrading the recommended Contact Form 7 plugin to v 5.1.1 , all forms are broken: the forms are no more sending the content when integrating recaptcha.
One gets a display of the Orange Border Response : “Error trying to send message”
On Contact Form 7 web site one can read:
It is expected that some websites using reCAPTCHA v3 will experience side effects from the changes in 5.1.1. In those cases, you will see a response message surrounded by an orange border every time after you submit a form.
The orange border indicates that a spammy attempt has been detected by a spam protection module like reCAPTCHA. Seeing the orange border every time is obviously abnormal unless you are a real spambot.
We know some theme authors improperly omit
wp_footer()call to block scripts from loading. That is one of the worst practices in theme development that will surely causes problems like those explained above. Ask the theme author for a fix if you find your theme has such issues
So I understand that even the latest very recent TOTAL theme upgrade is not compatible with the recaptcha V3 requirements. Will this be fixed pretty soon in next TOTAL theme release ? (of course disabling the recaptcha antispam plugin make things working)
