Hello! My personal website has some traffic but really few comments. I have secured it against malicious activity with Akismet, iThemes security and other measures. I’ve dumped obvious comment spam so I don’t have to review it but still get a dozen spam messages in comments every month. They’re not published of course. I’ve used solutions like yours in other WordPress-sites on forms and really like the possibility of setting up your own questions for spam protection. I use Finnish because my content is in Finnish. HumanCaptcha seems to have some trouble with this. I have a dozen questions and answers set up and tested the solution. Most of my questions have Scandinavian characters in them (ä or ö). This seems to be a problem to HumanCaptcha. Only when the answer to the question is numeric and correct the comment is accepted. (Yes, I have made sure the case is correct, there are no misspelling on the answer in settings or in comment form and checked that there are no extra space in the Settings answer.) If the question doesn’t have Scandinavian characters all correct answers are accepted. Can you confirm this is the case and can you fix this in reasonable time?
While testing I noticed also one time the question wasn’t inserted in the comments form and that I can’t update the questions. I can delete and create new questions but when I make corrections or changes to the questions and press Update the question resets itself to the original form.
As development suggestion I would hope that the case-sensitivity would be optional so that simple lazyness wouldn’t make the answer incorrect.
