I'm trying to get recaptcha working based off this tutorial:

First I downloaded 1.6.0 source, copied in the radcaptcha folder in extensions, and pushed out to the site but get a continuous spinning ajax-loader.gif image where I believe the captcha is supposed to be.

Since the article stated 1.6.1, I downloaded the web version of this (is there a source version?), and same thing is happening.

I've gotten a global public and private key and it is enabled, so not sure what's going on? I even set the log to 0. Thanks.

The source version for 1.6.1 is here.

One of the recaptcha settings is "show captcha for authenticated users".  If this is unchecked (the default), and you are logged into the blog, recaptcha won't appear.  If you're logged out, it will appear ... or if you check that box, it will appear all the time.  Not sure if this setting is the problem, but one thing to look for.

That was it! Thanks. Trouble was I was trying to copy in the extensions in 1.6.0 too and only 1.6.1 appears to work - so was getting myself confused. Thanks for the link.
