Private Message Captcha does not work.
« on: 2012-08-31, 06:18:18 PM »
I was trying to send a thank you to a member for a tutorial they put up a while ago. I didn't want to necro-post, so I decided to send them a private message, but the captcha is not working. I can read and hear. I type the letters in and it doesn't work. I listen to the letters and it's obviously wrong also. In fact, when you click play again, after the letters have been read, it says a completely different set of letters. LOL.
Anyway, thank you Vincent for helping me out.

Sorry about that. I have investigated the code and I think the combination of using a customized verification module and my manual edits to require a "1" at the end cause multiple problems. I have made some changes to the code, and I think I have fixed it all now. Note that when you want to send a private message, the prompt now tells you to add a "1" to the end of the code (to help further deter bots that *can* read captcha images, which I was having problems with too, I think). That wasn't the only problem, but I have made it part of the solution. Unfortunately I don't have the energy to add that bit to the message for all languages, so anybody who uses the forums in another language won't be informed/reminded to add the "1" to the end of the captcha code. Hopefully we'll help them figure it out one way or another, or everybody uses English. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

I honestly have no idea of what tutorial I may have made, but I'm glad I helped you out somehow. :)  You're very welcome.
