  • Hi… I second this request and would lik to know where I can remove or reword this last line. Is there no way to possibly just put a captcha code in there instead of checking a box?

    Thanks so much for this! I just installed it and really expect great things from it!

    The way the checkbox works is actually more efficient than a captcha, since almost every single captcha implementation out there (including reCaptcha) has been read by spam bots, which renders them almost useless.

    There is a fairly clever, yet effective method of preventing spam entries that is built into the form. I have yet to see 1 single “automated” review submission come through using our method.

    That all being said.. we could add an option for using captcha instead of the checkbox. After the explanation above, is there a reason that a captcha is needed vs. the checkbox?

    It -should- be sending email notifications of new reviews, if your WP install and server are setup to allow sending mail. If you receive notifications for comments, you should also be receiving them for reviews. If not, let me know.

    bompus, thanks for responding so quickly!

    Captcha is not required.
    I did poke around in the code and found that line and replaced the text to something else more to my liking!

    Another suggestion, which I also edited in my version was next to email, I put text saying it won’t be displayed or shared. Especially if you make it mandatory, people might be a little skeptical to put that in. (completely non-related)

    Anyway, I did change the text to reflect what I wanted for the human thing, but in the code, I noticed that there might be something where if not checked, it pops up with a message saying something along the lines of, “confirm that you’re human”. Would the code break if I edited that part of the code? Can you tell me exactly where to change the text?
