    Just FYI, as of 4.8, seems this plugin has stopped working for Contact Form 7. Getting hit by spam every 10 minutes.

    Don’t believe anything has changed between versions to cause the plugin to stop working. More likely bots have gotten wise to your honeypot. Try changing up the name of the honeypot (see installation instructions on the plugin page for more information).

    Same here. Lots of spam coming through since WP 4.8 update and Contact Form 7 update. Not sure which update has borked Honeypot, or it’s pure coincidence.

    Something changed and the spam is suddenly very frequent. May have to switch to another form solution.

    After further testing on another domain, it seems like everything is working properly now, so if there was some problem it has been fixed. I hate Captchas and appreciate having this alternative.
