Captcha does not fit in sidebar

  1. The captcha form is 318 px wide. My sidebar is more like 215px. What can I do so the Captcha fits in my sidebar...for any form I use in my sidebars?

  2. The reCaptcha field/script is provided by a third party and the dimensions are set by them. It's obviously not ideal for small space like a sidebar. You can aways try to manipulate it with CSS, but that's not something that's quick and easy. You would have to view the source with a developer tool like Firebug, etc. to see the class names/HTML structure and then do a bunch of trial and error stuff to get it to work. Then, if they change anything on their end you have to do it all over again.

    The only realistic option is to try the Really Simple Captcha plugin. If you have that installed, you'll see it as an option to reCaptcha in the form builder. It's much more compact and should fit in smaller spaces nicely.
