I like the new Captcha feature but may I ask to: 1. not having to use it for **previews** (have no sense as it's not "posting") 2. you'll place a **re-captcha** button (or using the "*Chaptcha*" word as a link) to ***refresh*** it before to post, as Captchas are time-dependend and I'm getting so many "***wrong captcha***" just 'cause of timeout Thanks in advance

Should of been entitled captcha resulted in very little change. But that had to of been expected, really, as the system was mitigated some time ago. And to stop it asking for catcha for preview, it's as simple as commenting out the code.

You don't need to enter the Captcha for previews. If you hit the Preview button without typing in the Captcha it works fine. That also refreshes the Captcha, removing the necessity of having a re-captcha button. _And now you know!_

Seems you don't require the captcha for preview - well spotted. I'd not attempted.

That doesn't explain me why, ***if I enter the*** (timed out) ***Captcha and press Preview*** I'll get the "***wrong captcha***" error, right? ;-) I shouldn't get any error as, on Preview, Captcha shoudn't be verified, IMHO. I never tried to avoid writing the captcha too, even before a Preview so, ...

I've also occured such - accidently clicking preview instead of post - but the preview still occurs without a captcha input. Input of a "wrong" captcha still results in error messages and post denial - and this is to be expected, as it validates the captcha input - but as ...

***@Phicksur*** That (the Captcha time frame) was clear to me, after we started speaking here. :-) What I was reporting (the same as @EyeR) is "*I shouldn't get any error as, on **Preview**, **Captcha shoudn't be verified***".

Captchas are last resort solutions for people who don't know how to prevent bots abusing forms. Use honeypots and engage proper security protocols into the forum application instead of serving bad UX.

Honeypots are a nicey of tool - but only of limited practical use in this scope. IMHO the better initatives are those that prevent abuse before it happens, many places contribute IP/usernames/emails/spam content to databases - which can then be scraped for hostile IP's and prevented from accessing the services ...
