    Hi,
    this is bug not related with WP 5.5. I’ve looked into it and it is caused by consuming event listener by another plugin that we don’t use. Fix will be soon, today.

    Okay, version with fix is waiting to publish in WP repository, I will release it in 4 hours. I used developer tools to override plugin script on your websites and seems it works now.

    You can test updated plugin, get it from Github repository. If you have WP 5.5 you can upload zip file and update plugin without uninstalling it first. Tell me if it fixed the issue and I will release the update to everyone.

    Hi and thanks for the quick reply!

    It looks like it is solved, sort of. When I refresh the page I can still see the field and then it disappears. Solved by CSS?

    Example (refresh the page a few times): https://www.jacktummers.nl/pandemieen-zijn-van-alle-tijden-star-trek/

    Hi,
    you can see Current year field for a second because it’s hidden by JavaScript when the whole page is loaded. It’s part of protection, see:

    ‚INVISIBLE JS-CAPTCHA‘
    The ‚invisible js-captcha‘ method is based on fact that bots does not have JavaScript on their user-agents.
    Extra hidden field is added to comments form.
    It is the question about the current year.
    If the user visits site, than this field is answered automatically with JavaScript, is hidden by JavaScript and CSS and invisible for the user.
    If the spammer will fill year-field incorrectly – the comment will be blocked because it is spam.

    Maybe the second part would be enough, but I hope blinking field is still better than captcha or third part server.

    Okay, thanks for explaining :). But weird that I have never seen this before.
