In form.php you have two empty table cells. Look for them both

The first is

<td>
</tr>

and the second is

<td>
<td>

in both cases delete one of the <td>

I had to go back and renable captcha, while leaving this on.

Lately bots are able to get passed this alone.

If they are getting passed then I suggest changing the question/answer regularly. they will actually have to visit your guestbook at least once to get the answer.

Wow i have both this, plus captcha enabled, and they are still getting through.

kinda annoying, but i guess its life on the web anymore

I wonder if there is a way to incorporate one of the anti spam services such as Akismet into it...

I suspect your spammers are actually manually visiting the site. To be honest the captcha in AG is very simple and, judging by the spam in this sites guestbook, was broken a long time ago by bots.

yeah i was thinking that, When looking at server logs, it seems many visitors go directly to the addentry.php page so the bots, and spammers know about it...

I was going to switch to your version of the guestbook, but i dont really wanna recreate the template i made right now but soon i will.

I'm looking at adding Solve Media as an option to my guestbook. If you go to my website and click Contact at the top of the blog you will see Solve Media in action. I may make a mode for AG to use it as well.
