Re-captcha not working with gform_field_value_ filter.

  1. I have a form set up to replace the multisite registration process, fairly standard. It has a re-captcha field. The one thing it does that deviates from the norm, is that it generates the username randomly with a filter much like this:

    add_filter( 'gform_field_value_my_custom_field_name', 'gform_field_value_my_custom_field_name' );
    function gform_field_value_my_custom_field_name( $value ){
      error_log( "GForm Filter Triggered" );
      while( !$value ) :
        $value = 'textstring' . sprintf( "%05d", rand(0,99999) );
      return $value;

    This works without the re-captcha. However, with it on, the filter does not run.

    I've sent a note to the developers. Which versions of WordPress and Gravity Forms are you using and can you send an XML export of your form and your functions.php file to ?

  3. Hi, Miramedia,

    Were you able to figure out your issue? If not, can you provide us with the information David requested, or even a WP admin login so we can check out the form setup ourselves? I would like to try and reproduce the issue you are having, but I am flying blind here with not knowing the form setup and the functions in use.
