    Hi,

    Is there a way that we can add a reCAPTCHA style widget to the standard "leave comment" box to avoid spamming... we are starting to experience rogue comments placed by bots sent to our email address to approve!

    Here is a link:

    Hello scoc,

    This would have to be considered custom work. You might be interested in using a plugin though, see here,

    Ok another question unrelated...... why has our site stopped working correctly.... if i visit the directory page the dropdown menus no longer work and if i try to use the gallery on the events/parade of lights option the gallery no longer works properly. I really need some help on this please. it was working fine recently and i have installed no new plugins! The only that i have done is today update wordpress to the latest version....3.0.5 and submit the site for search engine access

    Hello scoc,

    It looks like your directory page is setup on a sub domain, http://members.seasidechamber.com/list, are you doing a redirect for this?

    I didn't notice any errors but that specific page is loading another copy of jQuery from google and that usually causes problems.

    You said this page was working fine before the update?

    Yes it was working fine before the update. http://members.seasidechamber.com/list is a dummy page that is called upon to load a member list from our CRM software (chambermaster.com) into. Everything worked fine before the upgrade to 3.0.5 and was tested before launch. I forgot to mention that i did install wp-ecommerce but as far as i'm aware it was working fine with that as well....

    I just checked it again this morning and found a javascript error,

    jQuery("form.product_form").livequery is not a function
    [Break On This Error] jQuery("form.product_form").livequery(function(){

    Which is coming from, http://www.seasidechamber.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-e-commerce/js/wp-e-commerce.js?ver=3.7.59

    Not sure why I wasn't seeing it before but go ahead and disable that specific script (probably deactivating the wp e-commerce plugin) to see if this fixes it.

    If that fixes it then it would be best to get in contact with the plugin author and let him know about this. He should be able to tell you which files need to be edited to take the extra copy of jQuery out.

    Try deactivating all of your plugins to see if this fixes it. I noticed that the plugins scripts were still loading on your site even though you deactivated it so go ahead and try deleting the plugin from your plugin folder and clearing your browser cache.

    ok the fix was to view source at the hope page.... then copied the following text:

    <script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.seasidechamber.com/wp-content/themes/infocus/lib/scripts/custom.js?ver=3.0.5'></script>

    into the footer like so:

    </script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.seasidechamber.com/wp-content/themes/infocus/lib/scripts/custom.js?ver=3.0.5'></script>
    </body>
    </html>

    Refreshed the cache at chambermaster.com where the info is pulled from.......fixed!
    Have i told you yet today that you guys are awesome...... now going to try wp-ecommerce again!

    Having fixed the drop down menus in InFocus not loading at the "directory" page (see above) there still seems to be a problem with picasa jquery! If i use the picasa express plugin options and choose anything other than "thickbox" the images show as a link and open a new page when clicked. If i enable the "thickbox" option tnen only the gray background is loaded and the picture does not. I have left the thickbox option enabled for the time being (hopefully to help). It might be something to do with PrettyPhoto!

    When you have javascript errors on the page then most of your javascript related widgets, plugins, modules will stop working entirely.

    I checked your site and your receiving an additional error,

    jQuery("form.product_form").livequery is not a function
    [Break On This Error] jQuery("form.product_form").livequery(function(){
    wp-e-c...=3.7.59 (line 143)
    jQuery("a[rel^='prettyPhoto'], a[rel^='lightbox']").prettyPhoto is not a function
    [Break On This Error] "theme": 'light_square' /* light_rou...uare / dark_square */

    The second error is usually always caused from another version of jQuery being loaded in the page. In your case the version being loaded from google.

    I would make sure and correct that before continuing scoc, see my previous post.
