Hi,
I updated my Joomla to 3.8 yesterday, but after that the honeypot function in my Chronoforms v 5 didn't work.
Any idea why?

Error message: Honeypot check failed
displays after submit.

The result is also shown in the attached file.

When I restore the website to Joomla 3.7.5 the honeypot check works.

Hi,

The form is displayed using a plugin inside an article ?

Yes, that's right. Plugin is activated and article contains the code:

{chronoforms5}Contact{/chronoforms5}

Hi,

This looks like an issue with the latest Joomla update:

So this problem will hopefully be addressed in a future update of Joomla core?

I think so, for now you may try to set the "Action url" to {url:} in the "Display section" settings in v6, or disable the "Relative url" in the "HTML" action in v5.

Sorry, but it made no difference to disable the "relative URL" in the HTML (render form) action.

what is the url in the browser address bar after submitting the form ?

Good news!

Honeypot for Chronoforms 5 works in Joomla 3.8.1! It doesn't even matter if I use relative URL or not.

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the confirmation, Yes, Joomla 3.8 had a small glitch with the content plugins!
