I followed the instruction to setup the reCaptcha and I still get the following error.

Fatal error: Class 'RecaptchaProtector' not found in /var/www/stage/fit/spamprotection/code/EditableSpamProtectionField.php on line 31

I have installed

with silverstripe 2.4.5
Im using

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">

the page load etc and i see the recaptcha .etc but i see js error

js details
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property 'innerHTML' of null

in the readme it says

## Known issues:

ReCAPTCHA current does not work if the page doctype is XHTML. The API returns
Javascript which uses "document.write", which is not supported in XHTML.
A work-around is to always use the no-script version of the module (modify the
relevant lines in RecaptchaField.php), or to switch your webpage's doctype to
HTML 4. See:

Question:I want to stay with Xhtml strict
It says modify the
relevant lines in RecaptchaField.php, but which lines?

Hi and thanks for your suggestions to this point.

I have an ss3.0.5 install of Silverstripe on my localhost at this time.
I have installed the REcaptcha module and the spamprotector module.
I have also put the public and private keys and the SpamProtectorManager::set_spam_protector('RecaptchaProtector'); for spam protector.
I am also using the userforms module.

I have now got to the point where everything runs fine and I can add the spam protector field to the form but it does not display on the form.

I also followed the tip to log out of my admin but still no reccaptcha showing up.

And yes I also did the obligatory flush=all .,.. ;-)

Can you suggest what I might be doing wrong or may have omitted.

Many Thanks
