Problems With Captcha Image

Hi everyone,

I am working on a new site which is a bit like a blog where visitors can comment on posts etc.

In order for all visitors to be able to comment, I have added a form via a WA plug-in called form_comments_insert.php (form_comments_insert.php) which has the insert, email notification and captcha function on it.

The form looks great on the page when plugged into the post page: episode.php?id_post=2

However, the captcha image does not appear. I've made sure all the files are uploaded to the server and that the GD library is enabled. But still no pictures...

Also, when testing the form and adding random text into the captcha box (because I can't see the picture), I get this error message: Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/hantsle/public_html/podcasts/episode.php:4) in /home/hantsle/public_html/webassist/form_validations/wavt_scripts_php.php on line 84

I can't figure out what's wrong. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Martin

if i try to access the page that generates the captcha image directly:
wavt_captchasecurityimages.php

i get a 403 access forbidden error message.

this is probably a permissions issue. using File Zilla or another FTP Program to access the site files, you will need to change the permissions of the webassist/ directory and all files and folders under it to 755



The headers already sent error is caused by white space between php tags.

the error is reporting the problem around line 4 of the episode.php page:

output started at /home/hantsle/public_html/podcasts/episode.php:4


see this thread for details:
showthread.php?t=19285

Hi Jason,

Thanks for coming back to me.

I've removed the white space between the php tags on line 4 of episode.php and that has done the trick.

However, all of the files in the captcha directory are already set to 755. I checked them all again and reviewed the page on the site, but there is still no image showing.

Is there anything else we can look at?

Hi Jason,

Please ignore my last message. I was using a different background image for the Captcha and didn't have it in the captcha directory on the site.

Everything works a treat now!

Thanks,

Martin

Problems With Captcha Image

Hello,
I have the same problem with captcha image not showing.
How do I change "the permissions of the webassist/ directory and all files and folders under it to 755"?
Where do ia find the webassist/ directory?
Sorry, I'm new at this and don't know much about programming...

Use a s3rd party FTP program like file zilla to access the server.

the webassist directory will be in the site root.

in file zilla, you can right click the webassist directory and select Set Permissions. set the permission level to 755, and check the option to recurse through all files and folders under it.

if you need further assistance, I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.
