    Hi there! I'm using this plugin for http://www.saysyou.net/contact/ and I can't seem to get the honeypot shortcode to stay hidden no matter where I put it inside the contact form 7 editing page. How can I fix this? Thanks!

    Are you certain you have the Honeypot plugin installed and enabled. It appears the honeypot shortcode is not being replaced when the form is generated, which indicates that maybe the plugin hasn't been activated or was installed incorrectly.

    Yes, I installed the plugin through my site's admin section and activated it immediately after installing it. Double checked it just now.

    Hi, this doesn't seem to be the case from what I can publicly access on your site.

    I can see you have Contact Form 7 installed on your site:
    http://www.saysyou.net/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/readme.txt

    However, when I try to check the CF7 Honeypot plugin using the same method, I get a 404 Page Not Found:
    http://www.saysyou.net/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7-honeypot/readme.txt

    This leads me to believe that the plugin either wasn't installed, or wasn't installed properly.

    My directory started out elsewhere and I haven't had the time to focus on migrating it yet.

    I don't quite know why WordPress works this way, but I just copied the plugin over so it's in both directories and now it works. Guess I need to do that directory move I've been avoiding...
