Contact Form 7
Good Plugin -- DOCUMENTATION is LACKING (3 posts)

    I could not find a single example of the full code for a contact form using Really Simple CAPTCHA. There is documentation on the latter, but never with a full example so you can see exactly one complete form with all the tags in context. It really bugs me when programmers can't be bothered to give context -- there is always this assumption that the user has some familiarity with the code. Really clear, complete documentation == full examples --> yields donations.
    Also, can't seem to find documentation on how to send to more than one email address -- at least not in the FAQs.

    I just found this plugin too, and found the same problem as @jjsowers. The developer has simply forgotten to provide a complete example of how to use the plugin. This documentation page only shows the short-codes for the captcha itself, which right now appear on our contact page literally (i.e., no CAPTCHA displayed, no integration with the plugin).

    Despite the embarrassment we are leaving this unevaluated code up on our web site as a demonstration and to help get an answer from the developer.

    This is not a matter of opinion, or inability to read the instructions on the documentation page. We just need to see a complete example of how to use Really Simple Captcha with Contact Form 7, as it was obviously designed to do (just the developer forgot to tell us how to use it). I'll be watching this page for an answer & will schedule a donation if and when we can make this work.

    The simple answer to all previous questions: you don't put the [captchac ...] and [captchar ...] on the page itself. You put them in the Form field of the Edit Contact Form plugin settings page. It would have been nice for the author to tell us that. Good plugin in any case...
