I had the same problem. Fixed it by
1.unzipping the captcha plugin package to a temp folder locally.
2.taking the language file from the original package I just unzipped and replacing the one on the server ( / com_comprofiler / plugin / language / default_language /default_language.php )
3. fixed!

Hope this helps someone else! And thanks to the team for another excellent product! I gotta send over those Euros and get that CB admin guide!!!

Hello I read all the posts and looked in the CB manual and tried google but I am still at a loss for how to fix the "no image issue" I don't want to modify the code as I assume the code is written as it should be and I don't want to mess with anything

In order fo the captcha cb plugin to work you must have GD library support on your php server and also true type fonts.

ask your provider if these are supported.

GD (or GD2) is image manipulation code that can be compiled into PHP. Nick has said here that CB captcha calls for it. In the Joomla admin back end, go to System > System Info. Click the tab labeled "PHP" and scroll down (or use the browser's Find command) to look for "GD". If your host has compiled PHP to include GD, you will see a section that looks like the text below. You probably have it (in which case I have no idea why you're not getting the captcha images). But if you don't have GD, you need to ask your host to recompile PHP with GD.
