I use hCaptcha, not reCaptcha. Are there any plans on integrating support for hCaptcha?

wpForo Version
1.9.9.1
WordPress Version
6.0.1
8.0.17
10.3.34-MariaDB-cll-lve

@tutrix I am however, it wasn't connecting to wpforo properly. hCaptcha works fine on the rest of the site.

This is the error that I see, and checking the box doesn't work. hCaptcha works perfectly on the rest of the site.

UPDATE
I was able to get hCaptcha working with wpForo. It was actually simple to do because hCaptcha is a drop-in replacement for reCaptcha. However, since wpForo is hardcoded for reCaptcha, I had to manually edit wpForo to get it working. The problem with this is that every time wpForo is updated, I will have to go back in and re-edit whenever I run the update for wpForo.

The wpForo team writes fantastic plugins. After going through the code myself, I am convinced it would only take them minutes to add this functionality alongside reCaptcha. It would be a win-win situation for everyone and site owners would then be able to simply choose between the two of them. Please add hCaptcha functionality to the official plugin!
