Support » Plugin: Captcha » Poor Quality Control

  • Since the switch from BestWebSoft to Simplywordpress, the quality of this plugin has gone downhill, with numerous problems or issues introduced with what seems like every update. I no longer recommend using this plugin.

    For example:

    • Formidable Forms discontinued its Math Captcha integration plugin with this plugin because of breaking updates (like reversing “cptch” to “hctpc” in the code for no discernible reason in an update)
    • As of update 4.4.4 adds ~500 queries associated with visitor tracking or some other nonsense, with many repeated queries, adding over 100ms to every page generation time (not even Memcached could help)
    • Increasingly poor English wording and grammar, leading to possible confusion
