Support » Plugins » Hashcash won’t allow comments – Javasript enabled!

  • Hello!

    I’m sure I’ve done something dumb, but:

    I have WP 1.5 for my new ‘blog. I am using the BionicJive theme. The *only* plug-in I have enabled is Hashcash (newest v2.3).

    I have done minor tweaks to the theme (just text changes for the most part). Comments work fine if Hashcash is deactivated. But no matter what I do, when Hashcash is active, I get the following error:

    WP-Hashcash Ceck Failed … “The value you submitted ( ) is incorrect. Check the javascript to assure that the value part of the (hash, value) pair is being correctly generated.”

    Fails in *both* IE and Firefox.

    I have tried de-activating and then re-activating, does not help.

    Anybody else had trouble using Hashcash with this theme?

    Where would I *start* to look in order to determine why it isn’t working?

    I am guessing either I have some file in the wrong folder, or I have altered some file in a small way making the hash fail. (Or possibly theme is broken?) I have tried checking the Hashcash site, but I can’t really figure out much to help from the posts there.

    It seems that you have enabled the option to require users to be registered and logged in before commenting. Since this option requires a human to registers and a human to login, thus preventing bots from posting comments, you do not need Hashcash.
