thanks! now it works :) I have one more question: If I remove the widget from the sidebar, will the cron still continue to run?

comment Do widget options need to be escaped widget()?
yes, but I wanted to know if you are required to sanitize them even when you're retrieving these options from the database. It just doesn't seem necessary to do that...

comment Using transients to store captchas
Thanks Mitcho. I ended up using no captcha at all :) Basically I created a nonce like you said and put it in a transient. Then I used javascript/ajax to pull out that transient and store it in a hidden input field, 10 seconds after the page has loaded. Then, when the form is submitted, I just match the transient with the input field $_POST and decide if the message is spam or not. of course all of this doesn't work if javascript is disabled, but who has js off? :)

comment Using transients to store captchas
well I described it above... I'm trying to find a very simple way to add captchas to custom forms generated by a shortcode, without having to resort to plugins. I already have this working (almost), and just need your opinions if it's good to implement the captcha this way...
