I recently upgrade joomla site and installed Virtuemart 2 and cannot register properly.

Joomla 2.5.9

Getting the following message when I attempt to register during checkout.


To use reCAPTCHA you must get an API key from https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/create

I have tried enabling and disabling the plugin as well as the Captcha dropdown option in joomla global user configuration.

I have even tried installing three other third party extensions, tried enabling and disabling the plugin as well as the Captcha dropdown option in joomla global user configuration:

Joo Recaptcha
RVS Captcha

None of the captcha plugins show during registration and no matter what settings I choose, I get the error message telling me to register with google, weather I enable/disable the plugins as well as change the Captcha dropdown options in joomla global user configuration.

I have also tried replacing the the Recaptcha files directly through FTP  from the latest Joomla release with no luck.

VM2 Configuration:

On checkout, ask for registration = yes
Only registered users can checkout = yes

Joomla User Configuration:

Allow User Registration = Yes
New User Registration Group = registered
Guest User Group = public
Send Password = Yes
New User Account Activation = none
Captcha (I have tried every possible option) = None Selected, Default, Captcha ReCaptcha, KeyCaptcha (Joo Captcha and RVS Captcha never showed up in the drop down options)

I have now added a third plugin:

ECC+ - EasyCalcCheck Plus - Joomla! 2.5

I was able to get this plugin to display in the form and when I submit the from the error does not display, but nothing happens. The page reloads back to the registration form, still unable to register.

Here is the link to my site:


Thank you in advance
