Simplify Your Web extensions, ever since the beginnings of Joomla 3, have been using the version of Bootstrap included with the Joomla core.

Joomla! 2.5 support ended December 31, 2014 (the latest official release is 2.5.28). Although this was more than 3 years ago, many sites have not yet migrated to Joomla! 3 (find reasons why you should migrate here).

Many of those sites use the Google reCaptcha v1 widget. Google will turn off reCAPTCHA v1 on March 31, 2018. Therefore, any call to the v1 API will not work after March 31, 2018 and forms will fail.
