It has come to our attention that some users have had trouble with registration on the OneChurch Basingstoke website. If that’s you, please try again.
The problem appears to have been two-fold for most users.
First of all, for some browsers (e.g. Safari for Mac) it was a problem with Google reCAPTCHA, the system we use to ensure those trying to register with us are not robots (automatic registrations that seek to overwhelm a website). We were using version 2 which asks you to choose which panels in a photograph have a particular object (e.g. traffic lights or bicycles).
We have now upgraded the site to use Google reCAPTCHA version 3, which does this check in the background.
The Need for a Strong Password
The second problem is that we ask you to choose a STRONG password when registering on our site, for security purposes. Unfortunately, the registration form we are using does not throw up an error if you choose only a weak or medium password. The wording on the registration page has now been updated to reflect this.
Please Try Again
So, everyone should now be free of registration trouble for the OneChurch Basingstoke website. If you have any difficulties, please contact the Webmaster who will attempt to help you.
