Invisible Captcha for Amasty Extensions

In this section you can enable or disable the Google Invisible reCaptcha for supported Amasty modules. Choose Yes to enable the Captcha for the extension or No to disable it. Please note that you will get the Not Installed status when you do not have the appropriate extension.

Advanced Settings

To add Google Invisible reCaptcha to any custom form on your website please go to the Advanced Settings section.

In the Urls to enable field, you need to put the URL where a form is sent.

Note! It’s not the URL where your form is located.

For example, you would like to add a Google reCAPTCHA to a registration form. This is how to get the URL:

1. Go to the registration form page.

2. Fill in the form.

3. Open the 'Inspect' window, and then the 'Network' tab.

4. After submitting the form you need to find a request with POST in the 'Method' column and 302 Status.

5. Click on this request and in the 'Headers' tab find a 'Request URL'. Сopy the path from the URL (in our example it is customer/account/createpost/).

6. Paste the URL in the URLs to enable field.

In the Selector for forms field, you need to put a CSS selector of the form.

For example, this is how to get a CSS selector for 'Create an account' form:

1. Go to the Create an account page and open the Inspect window.

2. Find the HTML code of the form, click on the right mouse button and choose Copy → Copy selector

Note! You should be on 100% sure that the selector is unique. Otherwise, Google CAPTCHA would be added to all elements that have this selector name. Ask your developer to check it.

3. In our case the selector is .customer-account-create .account-create form and we add it to the Selector for forms field.

Don't forget to click on 'Save' button after you add a CAPTCHA to all forms that you need.

The extension supports three forms by default. In case you don't need any of them, you can disable these forms manually.

Hot to Check Invisible reCaptcha

When everything is set, it is important to check how reCaptcha works. Please, follow these steps:

  1. Open the page which has a form protected by Google Invisible reCaptcha;
  2. Open your browser console;
  3. Choose to perform as any other browser or device;
  4. Try submitting the form several times until Google shows you the reCaptcha test.

Reviews in Google search preview

Let shoppers see the product star rating and the number of reviews right on the Google result page. This information will be automatically transferred to the Google results page.

This is how it will be displayed:
