I’m trying to use the recaptcha gem with devise 2.0.0 in rails 3.2.1.
Every time I try, I am able to display the captcha and input the 2 words
it asks about. But in my controller (using code I found on github for
the recaptcha gem, and after I replaced render_with_context with just
plain render) verify_recaptcha always returns false and when I look at
flash[:recaptcha_error] it says “recaptcha-not-reachable”. The only
thing I can see that might be a problem is that one of the examples of
configuring the config values for recaptcha showed a proxy setting. I
don’t generally use a proxy so I just left that setting out. Is there
some reason why sending the captcha results to the recaptcha server
would require a proxy when getting the basic captcha to display works
just fine without one? Any other hints about what might be wrong? Is
there a better solution I should look at instead?
