Captcha Plugin and emails from Connections

14 years 8 months ago #34124 by gchancy
I have Joomla 1.0.12 and CB 1.2 installed with the captcha plugin. I have the options set in the captcha plugin to require security code for registration and lost password, but not for email. That option is set to no. I have connections enabled on my site. The problem is that when a user sends an email via connections, the system notifies the user that the security code is invalid. The email information is then lost.

Is there a setting I have missed, or is there a bug in the captcha plugin? The security code does not appear on the connections email form, but it appears to still be checked by the system.

thanks,

I"m having the same problems.

In order to send out an email, CAPTCHA for outgoing emails needs to be on. If set to off, the same error thread starter message appears.

There is also no captcha image being generated by the system to even put in a code if its set to off, yet it displays an invalid code with no option to input one.

Turning off both EMAILING and PASSWORD options in captcha yield the same result.

Going farther and turning off REGISTRATION option - Same result

Unpublishing the plugin, and it emailed out fine.

I'm temporarily turning captcha on with all option in the green, but I would like to know what info I need to provide you so we can all figure out how to fix this

Same problem here. I'm running the 1.0 version of the plugin on CB 1.0.2 and Joomla 1.0.12 and I am basically forced to turn on captcha for members to send emails to each other. If I disable captcha for email forms, the CAPTCHA image (correctly) doesn't show up on the email form. But when the "Send" button is hit the "invalid security code" message appears and the email info is lost. I don't even have Connections enabled.
Any idea why this may be happening??

Thanks

Just to add my voice to this issue.
Turning off Captcha for internal emailing results in "Invalid Code" when you try to send an email.
I've turned Captcha on for users for now, but would like to use the option to turn it off!

I had this problem and found that the "&Itemid" in the link returned by _getHTMLcaptcha was causing the image URL to produce an authorization failure, making it not appear.

I fixed it (fingers crossed) by adding the line:

[code:1]$imageUrl = html_entity_decode( $imageUrl );
[/code:1]
before the line:

[code:1]$CaptchaImage = '<img src="' . $imageUrl . '" />';
[/code:1]

...in the file cb.captcha.php

Hope that helps.
