What part of the theme is relevant for displaying the captcha, and how does it differ between themes? It appears to display fine with the prosilver theme (it works in the acp)

Alternatively, perhaps the default theme should be changed to prosilver until the custom theme is fixed?

I thought reCaptcha displayed just fine in the acp regardless of the theme only when applied did it break?

(since I already have the theme files)

Yes, we're quite sure it's a theme issue. It doesn't even show up with the current default theme (tmw3). If you go into the admin interface (which uses prosilver), it works fine. Could we have the registration page alone be prosilver?

hello, i'm not sure if that's a solution(or part of), but from what i read the error could be since the theme isn't ready for changes made in phpbb 3.0.6.
i saw that for some people a solution was to use the captcha template file from a template where it works, especially from the prosilver or subsilver2 theme if the one from prosilver doesnt.

1. adding:
<!-- ENDIF -->
(i am not sure in what templatefile that goes, some "mainthemetemplate" or maybe directly into the one of the page where captcha should show.)

2. copying a templatefile from the prosilver theme to the currently used one(and maybe lateron adjust this one to the tmw style):
to root/styles/usedtheme/templates/
(also not sure if that file would be called for example just recaptcha.html if another captchaplugin than this one is used.)

i have that from: ... s-and-you/

maybe it's something into the right direction, but there is no promise that it will work since i didn't setup phpbb to test it with the current tmw theme.
maybe it just works.

best regards and good day
