FAQ

Missing CAPTCHA on the comment form?

You might have a theme where comments.php is not coded properly.

Wopdpress version matters.

(WP2 series) Your theme must have a tag <?php do_action('comment_form', $post->ID); ?> inside the file /wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/comments.php.
Most WP2 themes already have it. The best place to put this tag is before the comment textarea, you can move it up if it is below the comment textarea.

(WP3 series) WP3 has a new function comment_form inside of /wp-includes/comment-template.php.
Your theme is probably not up-to-date to call that function from comments.php.
WP3 theme does not need the code line do_action('comment_form'… inside of /wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/comments.php.
Instead it uses a new function call inside of comments.php: <?php comment_form(); ?>
If you have WP3 and captcha is still missing, make sure your theme has <?php comment_form(); ?>
inside of /wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/comments.php (please check the Twenty Ten theme’s comments.php for proper example)
