    I enabled Red Herring option. It generated W3C Validation errors. W3C Validator even complain that tags <title> and <meta> were at wrong place. The Red Herring form code is in inserted in the header before <title> and <meta> tags, which is causing W3C validation errors.

    ssiddiqi1,

    The Red Herring form appears at "loop_start". This should be in the body of your page.

    Your theme template is reading the loop in the header, which I don't think is the correct way to do things. I can think of reasons to do this, but I can't, off the top of my head, think of a way to display the form inside the body if someone starts the loop before the body.

    Perhaps there is another hook that I can use. I will look into this.

    Although W3C shows a validation error, the page should display correctly. The validation error is annoying, though.

    Thanks,

    Keith

    I cut and paste the coe in footer, then unchecked the Red Herring option in the plugin. It seems to work. It had cuaght 3 spammers since then.
    FYI, I am using Artsee theme of Elegantthemes.
