Tutorial: Adding reCAPTCHA to the Job/Resume Submission Form

Note: All code examples on this site are provided for developer reference/guidance only and we cannot guarantee that they will always work as expected. Our support policy does not include assistance with modifying or debugging code from any code examples, and they may be changed or removed if we find they no longer work due to changes in our plugins.

Using a captcha can help prevent spam. One of the best solutions out there is the Google ReCaptcha – it’s free and not too intrusive during form submission.

A significant number of your users can now attest they are human without having to solve a CAPTCHA. Instead with just a single click they’ll confirm they are not a robot.

WP Job Manager and Resume Manager have ReCAPTCHA settings built in. See this page for details of how to get a ReCAPTCHA key and enter your settings.

↑ Back to Top ReCaptcha for Applications

At this time, the Applications add-on does not have ReCAPTCHA support built in, so you’ll need to add some custom code.

To do this, use the following code (you can add the code to your theme functions.php file, or a custom plugin). Ensure you replace the SITE and SECRET keys with your own or this won’t work.

Thats all there is to it!
