    Dear Mr Cardoza,

    I’d like to use your wonderful CAPTCHA plugin as the basis to build on, in order to create a different kind of Captcha.

    Would this be okay with you? (I would, of course, credit you fully for the original code, along with links to your site and plugins.)

    Please let me know if this is okay with you.

    Dear Mr Cardoza,

    We’re 99% ready to release our plugin, but we’re seeing one issue we can’t seem to solve. The captcha we’ve created works perfectly on all pages except for “show on comments page” setting.

    On that page the captcha appears somewhat distorted and loses most of its styling. We think this due to the following two lines:

    add_action( ‘comment_form’, ‘include_captcha_comment_form’ );
    add_filter( ‘preprocess_comment’, ‘include_captcha_comment_post’ );

    ..or possibly this line a little further down:

    remove_action( ‘comment_form’, ‘include_captcha_comment_form’ );

    We’re not terribly familiar with the WP functions, can you tell us what these lines do and any suggestions on how to work around them?

    If you like, I can send you a link to the working system so you can see what it’s like. I’d prefer to do that offline or non-publicly if possible. Is there a more private way to send you the URL (email, perhaps)?

    Thank you!

    Thanks for your assistance. I’m not sure I’ll ever figure out what the fix is, but you helped me rule out some things, and I’ll see if anyone on the wordpress developer forums can help resolve the issue I’m having.

    Thanks again!
