reCaptcha re-display form data - fyrftr72 - Mar 27th, 2009

Hi Ben, and thanks for this great script! I have my a single page form running properly. But, when the reCaptcha code is not put in correctly, all the fields are emptied. I know there is a re-display command. Is there a way to implement this with the current api?
Or would it have to be accomplished with Javascript or PHP on the form page?

Thanks, Gene

Hey Gene,

Thanks for the post! Yes, this is a PHP thing. Since there's a form submit, you'll need to re-populate all your form fields with their original values. It's a bit of a drag (especially for large forms), but it's a necessary one.

Take a look at this tutorial: Refilling form fields with the API. That should explain how to do it! Let me know if it's not clear on anything.
