    Hi,

    Having looked through many of the link directory plugins for WP this one seems to be the right one for my purposes...thanks!

    I'm having a couple issues with the Link Submission form...

    1) Not sure CAPTCHA works...I have it set to display the CAPTCHA image but in my tests if I don't enter anything into the CAPTCHA box I still get sent to the confirmation page.

    2) Same issue with any form field...if I leave any of them blank I get sent to the confirmation page. Is there any functionality built int to require fields and alert the person submitting the form when a required field is not filled in?

    Working here: http://poetrysuperhighway.com/psh/links/add-your-website-to-our-directory/

    Thanks so much!

    Quick follow up...on the behavior of the front end link submission form. After a few tests I see that if the user leaves a field empty or types the captcha wrong, even though they are sent to the confirmation page, the link submission doesn't go through to the moderation panel.

    So it seems there is some field validation going on, just instead of telling the user there is a problem with the form it sends them to the acknowledgment page.
