no lettering in captcha image

no lettering in captcha image

Hello,

I have created a set of security pages.
Loads OK, and the captcha background exists fine.

However, there are no actual letters within the created background for me to copy.

Doubtless, I am doing something wrong, but not sure what.

Thank you for your kindness,
KAB

You can find the URL to the problematic page in the private area.
Thank you.

Upload the webassist/captcha folder with all of the contents. It looks like you didn't upload the font files that are used to write the text.

Hello,

I have done that.

I now have the issue that the answers I give are constantly being rejected.
I THINK it is more likely the question posed than the captcha image (simply because when the question page reloaded on two occasions, the error message was by the question rather than the image; although generally both received the error message).

Thank you,
And Merry Christmas

That can happen if the session isn't started as the page loads. I added this above the <DOCTYPE> tag:

<?php
@session_start();
?>

That seems to have fixed it.

Thank you
The data is successfully in the database so yes, that worked.

I will work, tomorrow, on a suitable landing page to go to after login.

I am grateful ... ... ... and again,
Merry Christmas and all that good stuff

Hello,

I am assuming that my most straightforward and simplest option is to provide a menu of actual physical links as choices that people can use to head off to on the site, after login? Rather than trying to provide some form of script that automatically diverts them to some page of my choice, once login has been successful?

If I were, however, to want to pursue the auto-diversion tactic of sending them somewhere specific on a successful login, where would be the best place to insert such a set of commands (given this particular programmer's rather low skill set in these matters!)?

(I have also downloaded your amended script onto the local folder so I don't accidentally and at some future point rewrite your corrections).

Thank you,
KAB

The easiest way to keep track of it would be to redirect them to a switchboard page of some sort that then would redirect them to the appropriate page based on a session variable saved in the login process.

Thank you.
I believe I have enough skill to create such a session variable or set thereof. I have never before heard of a switchboard page, but it sounds clear enough.
Indeed, I can arrange it to automatically switch people to the page I want within 4 or 5 seconds, and then provide a set of links or a dropdown menu filled with the appropriate selections in case that auto-switching doesn't work.

Thank you very much,
KAB

Hi

You mentioned a ”Switchboard” page. My humble researches show that this is an Access feature. Is there some new MySQLi feature I do not know of, & if so may I know its name so I could research it?

Otherwise, I shall just kludge something together using DataAssist & a couple of my feeble queries.

Thank you,
KAB
