Carrington-mobile issue now hiddy 1.5.1

Carrington mobile is part of the Carrington framework, it’s a theme for mobile devices such as iPhones, BlackBerries etc etc, hiddy was unable to add his code in the comment form.

The add action comment_form code is not able to put data in the form, so i had to disable the hiddy check when there is the carrington theme activated.

What’s new in 1.5 version

Yesterday i deployed on the latest version of hiddy.

I had some notification about problems with php 5.3 for the ereg funciton used in this plugin, ereg functions are deprecated so a warning message was displayed on every post/page with comment.

I removed the antiflood system, cause it’s already integrated in WordPress. Less CPU usage ;)

Void the direct connection with hiddy.php page, trying to connect directly to plugin page will return 404 error, more silent, more hidden. A spambot should be unable to check if hiddy is installed.

Disabled proud message for default, now if you want you can tell you use hiddy in your wordpress, more silent, more hidden ;)

There’s a new footer message and inherit div style tnx to Merlinox.

Minor fixes in this version of this captcha like antispam.

This plugin will add a simple input text in the comments form, this text will be hidden with a stylesheet and the when a user post a comment it will check for the input and check if it is empty.

Hiddy 1.3 – Enables dashboard editing and reply in WordPress 2.7

Due to the wordpress upgrade in version 2.7  all of you notice that Hiddy blocked every comment edited or replied from the Dashboard.

Davide Salerno had the right solution so he fixed this bug.

He simply added a check to the line 106, if the user is an administrator user then the comment is trusted :) … it’s a nice workaround.

Many thanks Davide!

New version hiddy 1.2 – fixing some problem

Many users find out a problem using Wp-OpenID plugin or using Firefox as browser and enabling its own password management.

Pseudotecnico find out the real mistake, when hiddy randomly choose a password type field it should be filled by automatic password management so the comment will be checked and signed as spam, the same thing happens with the Wp-OpenID pluing.

So now i released the 1.2 version, enjoy the new plugin, download it

New version 0.6

Hiddy is going up to version 0.6 (italian version)

In download page you can find the new hiddy’s version.

We made some minor bug fixes, such as function.php directly integrated in hiddy.php or style management.

But the real change is a new field in the form, it calculates the actual time (in secs) then when someone post the comment, hiddy checks the difference between the hidden field and the actual time in secs, if the time spent for posting is lower than 15 hiddy say that you are flooding, comment will be deleted and a go back link appear.

If a spam bot is posting to your blog, surely it doesn’t spend much more than 5 secs to submit the comment.

A collateral effect is the flood prevention, even if WP has its own.
