i got a clear response and followed the directions here:

 
attached is the way it looks.
 
BUT
the newaccountform.php never resolves and gives the page seen in the attachment.
clicking the continue button does nothing.
10 minutes waiting does not help.
trying to click the login button or anything else does not work.
I have to close the  tab and open the site again to login.
the recapcha never appears.
 
 
Thanks!
Jeff :)

Did you enter the reCaptcha keys in the Admin > Setup > General Settings > Privacy section?   The screen capture your provided shows the two fields as being empty.

As Michael indicates above the Image Captcha Mod is a good alternative.  I much prefer that version.

Hi Ken!

Yes I did enter them, saved cleared browser restarted PC, etc.still no go.

I blocked out all but the first 2 characters for privacy, is why it looked blank.

My advice would be to ditch re-Captcha and use the Image Captcha Mod (which used to be an add-on).

The Image mod is much more user-friendly for both admin and registrants.

Michael and Ken,

I did load the ver. 12 into my mod folder, and it works like a charm!

God Bless and thanks again for another successful TNG user save!

Hi Ken, Jeff,

Had similar problem and finally through trial and error worked out that the v12 reCAPTCHA only works with reCAPTCHA version 2 keys. As soon as I got the v2 key's no problems.

Hello ! I do not know if this is pertinent. I read yesterday that the new re-captcha V3 issued by google works "silently" provided that the visitor has a google cookie stocked on his engine, I mean the cookie that Google sets when you connect to the google account. If Google spots the cookie, then it is supposed that the visitor is human and he will be granted access immediately, without answering to the re-captcha usual questions.

I believe TNG v12 uses reCaptcha V2 not V3, so yes you must request the correct keys.   I gave up on the captcha provided by Googles years ago because i could not read the prompts being color blind, which is why I have been using the Image Captcha Mod.

Thanks for indicating the Google is now pushing V3
