Not Solved [Error Message] Broken Captcha
#1
Not Solved
Hi,

Running an install of MyBB 1.6.12, the default MyBB captcha doesn't display on the registration page, however when you try to submit the form, it displays an error saying that the verification code is in correct.

To clarify, the MyBB Captcha has never worked on this install. Maybe I am missing a PHP graphics dependancy or something?

The reCAPTCHA option, however, works perfectly. But this is not ideal for me as I personally find reCAPTCHA very hard to read and use.

I would much prefer to have the MyBB captcha if possible!


More Details:
PHP Version: 5.5.6
SQL Engine: MySQL 5.5.35
Server Software: Apache 2.2.26 (linux)

have you checked whether GD support is enabled ? (through php info --> admin panel >> tools & maintenance --> View PHP Info)

The only section mentioning GD is in the authors section, so I guess it's not installed.

I can't find anywhere in the MyBB docs that says GD is a requirement, though?

^ may be it is not mentioned as a requirement ..
in general, GD library (or ImageMagick) is supposed to be installed along with php

Captchas are quite useless nowadays anyways, so I suggest to disable it and get a combination of 2-3 of these: http://community.mybb.com/thread-110224.html

It wasn't on my system either. After installing the php5-imagick package and restarting apache, it was working again. IMHO this should be checked/complained about by the MyBB installer, or at least the moment CAPTCHA is enabled in the admin control panel.

MyBB doesn't use ImageMagick.
