    I recently upgraded to w3 total cache and my site is running quite fast until I tried to reactivate this plugin. I really love the idea of not bother posters additional hurdles and had been using WP Captcah Free on my previous blog successfuly.

    Anyway, it seems to work well when trying to comment in firefox. But once use my Internet Explorer 8 I get this error:

    Benutzer-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.0; Trident/4.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET4.0C; Creative AutoUpdate v1.40.01)

    Meldung: 'document.getElementById(...)' ist Null oder kein Objekt
    Zeile: 2
    Zeichen: 509
    Code: 0

    Can you have a look at it? Thanks,

    That particular plugin hasn't been updated in over a year and is listed as only being compatible up to WP 2.8.4. Try this one instead (at the very least the developer visits these forums every day):

    It seems to be well working, but the real advantage of WP Captcha-Free was that you did not bother your commenters with that kind of stuff as it worked nice in the background.

    But I guess it is not big usse for them to do ... I had 644 spam comments the 2 days I left WP Captcha-Free turned off :D

    Thanks for the advice.

    If you're looking for something that won't impact your readers, try Akismet (it should have come with WP).

    Well, the Idea was to avoid having spam even get into the database and not to bother visitors with it.

    I found the kind of addon I was looking for today:

    NoSpamNX - it adds some hidden form fields and spam bots will touch these fields which will block the comment. Easy, no extra gx, javascript or anything. works like a charm, even with cache.
