I am using recaptcha with a new blog I am building.
Everything work great!!
However, I can't seem to change the style. (colors)
I am using the code supplied in mysite config:

$recaptchaField->jsOptions = array('theme' => 'clean');

(I have also tried => 'blackglass') and do not see any results.
I check the page source and the Javascript that I expect to find is not there... (how is this JS being included in the page?)

Has anyone here had luck styling reCaptcha, and if so could you share your methods?

I've looked into the code last night and this should work. Although it's a bit of a hack :-)

Just tried that.. didn't work (I tried with and without the config setting, and I did a dev/build just for the heck of it.)
I check my page source and nothing is there for the JS, so I ask what method is to right this to the page (and what template?)

UPDATE: I do have it working now.. but its temporary (well I would like to have it setup via _config)

I added this to the top of themes/mytheme/templates/

var RecaptchaOptions = {
   theme : 'blackglass'

at least Its working .

Hi, I added this

<script type="text/javascript">
      var RecaptchaOptions = {
         theme : 'white'
         ,lang : 'de'

to my and ReCaptcha works fine, themed, in German and in team with the great Guestbook module, too.

Hi Guys,

Why dont you add RecaptchaField::$js_options = array('theme' => 'clean'); to your config? This is the gobal static option that will work for all forms.
