I am using reCaptcha and for some odd reason, I keep getting this error:

is_valid) { echo "You got it!"; } else { # set the error code so that we can display it $error = $resp->error; } } echo recaptcha_get_html($publickey, $error); ?>

Can someone explain to me what is wrong?

is_valid) { echo "You got it!"; } else { # set the error code so that we can display it $error = $resp->error; } } echo recaptcha_get_html($publickey, $error); ?>

Can you post the code that comes with that error. It's a bit hard to see the error without a code.

Did you include the javascript in the file?

Since you are using reCAPTCHA. Have you should read this:


I've read that link before...

Here is my code:

  $privatekey = "";
  $resp = recaptcha_check_answer ($privatekey,

  if (!$resp->is_valid) {
    echo "Sorry, your inquiry failed to submit. Please revise your inquiry and resubmit.";
  } else {
    echo"Thank you, your inquiry has been recieved! We will review it and get back to you as soon as possible!";
  <script type="text/javascript">
function MM_validateForm() { //v4.0
  if (document.getElementById){
    var i,p,q,nm,test,num,min,max,errors='',args=MM_validateForm.arguments;
    for (i=0; i<(args.length-2); i+=3) { test=args[i+2]; val=document.getElementById(args[i]);
      if (val) { nm=val.name; if ((val=val.value)!="") {
        if (test.indexOf('isEmail')!=-1) { p=val.indexOf('@');
          if (p<1 || p==(val.length-1)) errors+='- '+nm+' must contain an e-mail address.\n';
        } else if (test!='R') { num = parseFloat(val);
          if (isNaN(val)) errors+='- '+nm+' must contain a number.\n';
          if (test.indexOf('inRange') != -1) { p=test.indexOf(':');
            min=test.substring(8,p); max=test.substring(p+1);
            if (num<min || max<num) errors+='- '+nm+' must contain a number between '+min+' and '+max+'.\n';
      } } } else if (test.charAt(0) == 'R') errors += '- '+nm+' is required.\n'; }
    } if (errors) alert('The following error(s) occurred:\n'+errors);
    document.MM_returnValue = (errors == '');
} }
