cbnet Really Simple CAPTCHA Comments
CAPTCHA not showing in Comments area (10 posts)

    Hey there Chip,
    Been reading all the support posts about the cbnet Really Simple CAPTCHA Comments and can not seem to find the solution to my problem.
    I am running WP3.9 / Really Simple Captcha 1.8 / cbnet Really Simple CAPTCHA Comments 2.1.
    It works perfectly on my Contact Form 7 but nothing on the comments area.

    When I add <?php cbnet_comment_captcha(); ?> in Appearance > Editor > comments.php (right after the comment entry TEXTAREA form field or anywhere else around it) everything below this php tag (including footer) disappears from the pages.

    Can you please tell me what I am maybe forgetting or direct me to the correct support post on this issue?

    Thanks

    Hi soulint,

    What Theme are you using?

    When I add <?php cbnet_comment_captcha(); ?> in Appearance > Editor > comments.php (right after the comment entry TEXTAREA form field or anywhere else around it) everything below this php tag (including footer) disappears from the pages.

    Where you're getting a blank page, you almost certainly have a fatal error, but the error message is hidden. Can you enable debugging (add define( 'WP_DEBUG', true ); to wp-config.php), and tell me what fatal error message appears when you do this?

    Hi Chip Thank you.
    I have a WP theme 1041.
    Only the top of the page shows. The whole bottom of the pages disappear and here is what it says:

    Notice: register_sidebar_widget is deprecated since version 2.8! Use wp_register_sidebar_widget() instead. in /home5/snailadv/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3078

    I'm not sure what WP theme 1041 is. Can you (temporarily) switch to a core-bundled Theme (Twenty Twelve, Thirteen, or Fourteen), and let me know if the issue persists?

    I changed the theme to twenty twelve and put in again the define( 'WP_DEBUG', true ); and it does not give any NOTICE messages. But the CAPTCHA still does not appear...

    For testing purposes:

    1. Have Twenty Twelve active
    2. Disable all other Plugins
    3. Remove define( 'WP_DEBUG', true )
    4. Don't make any Theme file changes (such as adding Plugin functions directly)
    5. Ensure you have both cbnet Really Simple Captcha Comments Plugin active AND the Really Simple Captcha Plugin active
    6. Ensure you're viewing the comment form from a browser that is NOT LOGGED IN to your WordPress install.

    Do you still not see the CAPTCHA in the comment form? (By default, it will appear before the comment textarea, right after the other form fields (name/email/website).

    Also: do you have a live link that demonstrates the problem?

    Hi there Chip,

    I tried what you said... changing theme and testing as specified...
    Still the same problem. The captcha does not show on comments... just on contact form 7.
    Now I could not leave the website in a different theme since it completely disturbs the site but if you like I can send you the link to the site... Is it ok to send it here or should I send it to you through private message or email?
    Let me know
    Thanks

    Hi soulint,

    What Theme did you test on? Were any other Plugins active? I'm trying to recreate your issue on my end.

    Hey Chip,
    Tried on the twenty twelve theme. Turned all the plugins off except cbnet, contact form 7 & Really Simple Captcha.
