This question already has an answer here:

Trying to comment on the InfoSec blog today (http://security.blogoverflow.com/2014/06/should-we-rethink-our-entire-password-strategy/), I was redirected to a page stating "To use reCAPTCHA you must get an API key from https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin" (in wp-comments-post.php).

I'm unsure whether this bug is specific to the blogs or to the InfoSec subsite or even the InfoSec blog.

This should be fixed now. Please let me know if you're still having any issues.

  • The error still occurs, when using my account or publishing an anonymous comment. Is there any other step I can take to help debug? – Steve Dodier-Lazaro May 6 '15 at 19:30
  • Sorry, found another issue on our end. Working on it now. – alienth May 6 '15 at 19:32
  • OK, should be fixed now, for reals :) – alienth May 6 '15 at 19:39

  • Confirming it's fixed! I still had a glitch on my first visit after your last message, @alienth. The UI space for the reCAPTCHA spinner said the domain was invalid for the key, and I could comment, but my comment does not appear on the site and any attempt to re-post it resulted in SE telling me I was posting a duplicate comment. Well, too bad! Anyway, I tested again and it now seems to be working. – Steve Dodier-Lazaro May 6 '15 at 19:46
  • @alienth so you're the one we blame for the DDoS now? :P baptism of fire! – Tim May 6 '15 at 21:02
