Support » Plugin: Slider CAPTCHA » Improper reporting of validation result to CF7

  • Slider captcha reports incorrect validation result to CF7. This means CF7 will send an e-mail regardless of validation result.

    Unless this bug is fixed your contact form has the same level of protection against spam-bots as a bare form without a captcha.

    Here’s how you can test it. Open your contact form and (using Firebug or equivalent if you’re using different browser than FF) enable the form’s submit button by removing its disabled attribute. Now fill all necessary fields in the form and click submit. As the slider captcha has not been unlocked the form will be sent WITHOUT validation data, but it will be accepted due to the bug described above.

    Hope for a fix soon.

  • This is no longer an issue on the current versions of WP (4.2.4), CF7 (4.2.2), and Slider Captcha (1.4.4). It appears the plugin disabled form submissions entirely until the validation occurs.

    It would be nice if the plugin were set up to hook into CF7’s own validation error messages, ie so the submit button could be pressed, and if the slider hasn’t been unlocked, an AJAX error message triggered (the behavior that would occur if you try to submit the form without filling out one of the required* fields).

    But as is, locking up the submit button press until the slider is unlocked, is a perfectly workable solution for my purposes.
