Please help - how do i remove a verification step "I am not a bot" with Captcha?
I understand the whole bot thing, but no customer in their right mind will spend extra time on a website they see for the first time trying to pick boxes with color white on them.
No, I meant the in-built Newsletter Subscribe form in the footer. It is currently connected to Mailchimp account, so it takes a redirect and e-mail confirmation to get subscribed.
Seems counter-intuitive and too complicated...
Keith here, I’m a part of the Guru Team at Shopify! 🙂
A captcha is served by Shopify whenever more than 1 Customer Account creation attempt every 24 hours is made from the same IP. This includes the theme based newsletter sign-up form that you can link directly to your mailchimp account. We have this in place to help prevent with the creation of spam customer accounts and newsletter sign-ups.
If you have been testing out the email sign-up form from the same internet source (IP Address) then you will be given this CAPTCHA repeatedly after the first sign-up. New customers who subscribe to your newsletters will not be given this during the first registration, only on second registrations within a 24 hour period.
I have reach out to you directly about the issue as well 🙂
I have an issue within the same topic, when the CAPTCHA confirmation is required on my website www.lordhenrywatches.com : it is hidden behind my header/main menu on desktop (it seems to be correctly displayed on mobile) ... I've attached a picture of the situation.
Someone emailed me because he was thinking his email adress wasn't correctly submitted because of this (oddly enough, even if he wasn't able to complete the CAPTCHA, the email address was correctly added...).
How can I fix this please ?
Thank you in advance for your help,
I'm getting an issue where the captcha displays, I click and the checkmark goes green, but when I submit the message says: Your answer wasn't correct, please try again.
There is no question or puzzle displayed. What is the issue here?
Is there a way to temporarily prevent the CAPTCHA for dev/testing? Also, even after checking the CAPTCHA box, the Newsletter thank you message does not display. How to get that to display? We are using the Mobilia theme. Thanks!
Christine - I would suggest talking to Shopify Support. There's no options to disable this via the Admin but they may have other options. If you're a partner - talk to your Partner Manager.
I do exactly like your guide. Uncheck the box on Preferences from Shopify Admin.
It still shows CAPTCHA to my clients when they try to sign up for the e-mail newsletter.
What should I try next?
The newsletter form is really disappointing. Once you put your email address in the box, you find yourself at the bottom of the page, with no notice or advice, to discover that you should scroll ABOVE the form itself to find the Captcha and the Submit Button, this is crazy, see video below:
Please it needs to be fixed urgently, thank you!
This is very disheartening to hear.
Did anyone have a look at it for you?
Have you tried another app for handling the newsletter signup?
So we are supposed to pay some 12$ a year just to remove the captcha?!? Sounds crazy to me. BTW, it would be enough for me to have it at the right place, below (and not above!) the form fields!
I read the post now.
Same problem, many customers once I entered the name I thought I had completed registration.
We realized why we got into the habit of writing to those who have not completed the registration step, the answer is always "I thought I was registered". It would be enough to show the Chaptcha under the registration form, not at the top, no one will ever see it above.
have a good day everyone.
Unfortunately we had to abandon the double-optin, 70% of the registrations fail.
Too burdensome to write to everyone and then be told "but I am registered" and this is because not seeing the "chapta" they do not complete the process.
It would take very little to solve this.
Making the "chaptcha" appear under the email message instead of having it above it would solve everything.
