Regarding our work on , did that add CAPTCHAs to already-existing forms or force them into newly created forms? If the latter, can we try to force CAPTCHAs onto existing forms?

  • Status changed from Assigned to Resolved
  • Target version set to 1.7.4

This doesn't have anything to do with existing vs new forms. The problem is that the most recent upgrade to Contact Form 7 made certain object properties (like `$form->form`) inaccessible by direct reference. Had to switch over to their getter/setter methods.

This fix will be included in the next release, and is also up as a hotfix.
