WPCF 7 reCaptcha Defer

Description

This plugin is designed to help improve the performance of Contact Form 7 by loading the reCaptcha field on input focus instead of on page load.
This can help reduce the number of requests made to the server and improve the overall performance of the form.

The main advantages of using this plugin:

  • Defer loading of recaptcha until input is focused;
  • Improve speed by loading recaptcha only when it’s needed;
  • Improve GDPR compliance by not loading recaptcha until it’s needed;
  • Reduces potential conflicts with other plugins that load recaptcha;
  • Fewer HTTP requests needed to load recaptcha.

I can see the recaptcha load after the initial page, once you start filling in the form. Upped my page speed! Thanks

Finally fixed the CF7 reCAPTCHA v3 not working issue where "response token is empty" when using a theme that uses the Webriti companion plugin. Fixed it by using the CF7 Integration, adding Advanced Google reCAPTCHA and setup the reCAPTCHA v3 keys in both and installed this plugin. Very simple and works!
