    Is there any way to do this? Because if this is missed, and the user submits a post, then it wipes out the entire post text when the page reloads.

    The plugin does not disable the submit button until reCaptcha success, but it does return any user-provided data if there are any errors. So if/when the form is submitted with an incorrect/incomplete captcha, any entered data (like for post content field) is remembered and returned with the form. Is that not happening in your case?

    That is correct. The entire post text field is empty. Using ReCaptcha v2.
    You mean enable submit right?
    I love this plugin. After new years I’ll be going with the pro version.

    It sounds like something may be interfering with the post-submit process. Normally any submitted POST data is returned back with the form. Have you tried troubleshooting any other plugins, would be the first thing to try.

    I dunno. The submit button is active even with recaptcha v2 not checked. I just did another submission without it checked, and indeed, the post text field is blank after the error. Been doing this for over 20 years so I’m not a noob.

    The only other plugins on the site are simple ssl, and modula gallery. Newspaper Lite theme. It’s a new domain with latest wp.

    here’s the site: https://bit.ly/2V7SXqE

    If you’re saying the plugin saves the text data upon submit (without recaptcha success), it does not. This is a deal killer. Most of my clients could miss this based on age and internet competency.
    I’m trying man… I’d really rather not have to go to that other place, jeez, too many plugins out there. Along with so much work to get the right one. Yours does everything I need, except save the post text on forgetting to check the captcha thing. << Fix that, and you’ve got a winner.
    It’s almost like having a free preview thingy, without dealing with security issues.

    I also looked at the submit button source code. There is nothing there to stop the submit button from being clicked or displayed via css/js that I can see.

    Thanks for the link. So from what I understand there are two things you are asking about here:

    1) The submit button not disabled if reCaptcha is not checked

    For this, the plugin currently does not disable the submit button until after the form is submitted. I will take another look for the next update if there is a way to add validation for the reCaptcha field, or maybe just disable the submit button until it is checked, as you suggest.

    2) The post content field does not remember any user entered data

    This is what I was referring to in my previous reply. It sounds like something is interfering, probably another plugin or it could be something the theme is doing. Normally the post content field (even with the RTE enabled) remembers/returns whatever data the user had entered. If it would help, I would be glad to provide a video that shows this working on default WordPress latest version.

    Thanks man, If the plugin would save the post text data from the original post, it would be great if the recaptcha is not checked.

    I got stories that are in the thousands of characters typed. And losing a complete post (for missing the recaptcha) for an old 70yo guy that’s got thousands of hours doing his job to simply miss this one single check-box, is horrifying.

    That one thing would kill a website’s reputation. Thank you for your work Jeff.
    Doug.
