Works perfectly, on first install. Make sure to go to the member registration template and hide the existing EE/default captcha input field, but otherwise a terrific add-on!

THIS IS great!  I’ve got an MSM site and I’ve got an SSL certificate on one of the subdomains, this seems to pose a problem with the default EE captcha because the captcha images are hosted on the main domain which doesn’t not have an SSL. reCaptcha supports SSL so its perfect.

Fantastic addon that works exactly as advertised. This integration alone made the upgrade to 2.x worthwhile for me.

It’s plugins like this that make me love EE so much. Doing the same on .Net a couple of years ago took half a day and a support email to the guy who wrote the module. Not so with this- done in 60 seconds. Excellent work!
