WP Hashcash relies on the presence of two hooks in your theme,
comment_form. If your theme doesn't include these actions, you will need to add them immediately before the end head and end form tags respectively.
To install WP Hashcash, please download the plugin and unzip it, then copy the wp-hashcash.php file to wp-content/plugins. Activate the plugin and drag into your Widgetized sidebar for public statistics, or visit Options, WP Hashcash from the admin panel to configure options.
If you are upgrading from a previous version of WP-Hashcash, please disabled the plugin, then delete its files entirely. Then, upload the latest plugin files and activate!
