    Very mysterious. After I restored the backup from before the update, the short code disappeared.

    I would be interested to know if the visible shortcode of ‘Honeypot for Contact Form 7’ plugin can also be found on other websites.

    So I leave the topic open for now.

    On my sites, the Honeypot field type is still available and still works at the front end.

    I’m not quite sure what the problem is. What do you see and what did you expect to see?

    Any errors in error log files or the browser console (front end and/or contact editing page)?

    Thank you Gal for your feedback.

    Since I tried to solve the problem by reinstalling a DB backup, I can’t reconstruct it anymore 😉

    Fortunately the phenomenon did not occur on my other websites.

    It’s rather impractical to remain on your now-outdated version of CF7, so you’ll have to update at some point.

    If you do and nothing happens, it’ll be good to know. Otherwise, you can catch it in the act and we’ll have more information to help move you forward.

    One way to do it is to clone your site and update the copy.

    Hi @galbaras,

    thank you very much for your important hint! Don’t worry, all pages have been updated in the meantime.

    Strangely enough, the error only occurred on one website. Next time I’ll hopefully have a closer look at it before I write in this forum. 😉

    All the best
