    I activated the plugin with Contact Form 7 already installed and active. The CAPTCHA does not appear on the site. Any suggestions for how to fix?

    Hello Takayuki,

    Thanks for the referral to the documentation on your blog. My knowledge of PHP is limited, and I presently do not know how to query PHP in my local development environment to find out if the GD image library is activated (necessary for displaying CAPTCHA images). I understand from the link in your blog post you provided to the PHP Manual that the library is loaded with PHP from Version 4.3 onward (I am using v. 5.5.10 in my current local dev stack).

    I was really hoping to find a CAPTCHA or reCAPTCHA plugin that would work seamlessly with Contact Form 7 right out of the box. I will search elsewhere in the plugin repository for a simpler solution. Thank you.

    Yogaman,
    In case this reflects your situation, I thought I'd leave this note here.
    My Really Simple Captcha disappeared from my WordPress contact7 forms in the past few days.
    Where the captcha would appear, instead I had text and a link saying I needed to install the plug-in.
    When I tried to reinstall the plug-in, I got an error saying that the directory for the plugin already existed.
    I solved it by FTPing into my site, deleting the plugin directory and then installing and activating R.S.C.
    And it was back!
    HTH

    Hi Julie,

    Thank you for following up. Right after I posted to this forum, I explored some alternative approaches to presenting a CAPTCHA on my contact form using a set of other plugins designed to work with CF7. They didn't work either. I went back to using a very reliable plugin with a built-in CAPTCHA called Fast Secure Contact Form. That met my needs and solved my problem.

    Sincerely,

    YM5020
