    Hi

    I've the Captcha plugin installed and working (asks to fill in captcha when it's not filled in; gives message when it's incorrectly filled in).

    However, I still get tons of spam!! (5-10 a day)

    Any ideas why and what to do?

    I too am having this issue. Any chance of adding a hidden field that stops the spam bots that are able to crack your captcha?

    Hello,

    It is possible that captcha doesn't displaying with the form from
    which you are getting spam messages (usually it is a contact form).
    Also please update captcha to the last version, because we added some changes to prevent this problem.

    Regards.

    You're reply is too late I already removed your plugin and uploaded another and haven't had a problem since.

    Captcha is in my case displaying the form. It was updated to its latest version but still receives spam. :(
