    _ck_,

    I like your approach on this plug-in. I read on your WP site, where you mod'd an anti-spam image class that used MySQL. Why didn't you follow the same approach with this one?

    I seem to be losing the Session variable through the submission. Any ideas?

    I plan to offer a non-session option but it requires an extra table and some time to setup the routine to do it and I was in a hurry to get this plugin working as spammers here were 1 out of 4 registrations.

    There are a few settings inside PHP that can affect sessions so it might be one of these quirks that affect it. What kind of configuration are you running on? Apache 1/2 ? PHP 4/5 ?

    There is a chance I am setting up sessions incorrectly.
    I use a views counter plugin here that also uses sessions so it might be helping me where without it my plugin fails, I'll test that.

    (BTW spammers have now managed to get though my anti-spam image unfortunately
    - I increased the difficulty but they still get through, though more slowly)

    This is a demo of the bbPress Signatures plugin!
    If you use my plugins, please considering donating to help continue their development.

    Okay, I've addressed some session issues in a new version 0.07

    Give it a try and see if it works any better for you?

    Wow, you're an early bird as well! I'm giving it a try. I'm using the default install of WP, so it could be a setting. More to come.

    Note the bbPress plugin browser hasn't updated yet.

    You should be able to bypass it and get the latest here:

    _ck_,

    Have you considered coding it to work on all submissions instead of just registration?

    Well it's not too hard to add it to posts but that would be a huge annoyance to members to constantly have to enter the answer. bbPress doesn't allow non-member posting (ie. anonymous posting) though some people have come up with a hack for it.

    I could make it an option for posts though, will look into it.

    Did 0.07 work for you?

    Just a thought. I know I have seen a number of forum/blog sites using some type of challenge response test for anonymous-only posts. With the limitation of BBPress options for challenge response tests and the development you've accomplished, it seems like the next logical step to progress your plug-in. Of course, setting up an admin toggle gives your plug-in a great level of robustness.

    And yes, 0.07 worked great. Thanks!
