Translating the language strings should make the mod work for languages other than english.

Use a mod parser to get the language strings.
http://www.adrevenueshare.com/parser

Translate the strings, then add them to your Themes/default/languages/Modifications.{yourlanguage}.php and/or if you using utf-8 Modifications.{yourlanguage}-utf8.php

JustTheGladiatoR

Thanx..i do it!  :D
If yuo need the translation in italian i can give to you...  O:)

Because this is an anti-spam mod.
I don't add alternative languages.

Because every measure I can take to make each forum different, makes it harder for bots to get past.

Im colour blind, the "which colour" question is kinda impossible for me to answer, not a great accessibility plus point for a forum.

karlbenson

Accessibility can be an issue I accept that.

The problem is HIGH level captcha will eventually be passable by bots.
Many users, especially with visual difficulities can't read them.
But with bots capable of passing then, the only option would be to make that even harder. :(

With some of these puzzles there is a chance that someone might not be capable of completing any math or logical reasoning test.  I accept those who are colour blind would have difficulty with the colour differential puzzle.

It was one reason why I put them into a package with a variety of other puzzles.
And also why they are based at 7-11 year olds level.

If you can't complete a puzzle, hit refresh, and you should be served with an alternative one.

As always I'm open to suggestions about possible other puzzles.

TEOC2

No worries, its a compromise between security and being so secure that no one can get in, you've got to tread that fine line to keep the bots out, keep the great mods coming.

I have a request, how about showing four pics of say a cow, a truck, a flower and a hammer with a question asking which is the animal, or which is used for driving nails or similar. Would something like that be hard for bots to overcome?

karlbenson

I don't think it would be as hard as Captcha.
But one reason is finding pictures which I can legally use.

Since this is logic/puzzles. And the work that would be involved, if I were to do picture identification, it would probably be best as an alternative mod.

I dont think you'll have a problem with finding pics, im sure a thread requesting royalty free pics made by the members here (cartoony types would be fine) would yield a good set of pics.

Accessibility may be an issue with these puzzles. I love them and use them, but I'm worried about users with visual difficulties. It'd be great if there was an option to contact an administrator for assistance or the ability to explain to users that the puzzles are generated randomly, and if they refresh the page, they may get one that's more accessible.

I have altered my registration agreement, and in big bold letters, have stated that right at the top. To make it stand out further, I left a few spaces between that and the agreement..   Like this:

FOR A DIFFERENT/EASIER/FRIENDLY PUZZLE, PLEASE REFRESH THE SCREEN :)


< actual reg agreement down here>

I think it looks tidier than adding it beside, under or on top of the puzzles.  imo.
But if you prefer it that  way, Im sure someone will walk you through it :) 
Do NOT give admin and/or ftp details to just anybody, see if they are trust worthy first!!  Do your homework ;)

Found a problem.



At first glance, I thought the answer was red, even though the color is really orange (hex 255, 102, 0 or #ff6600). It does appear very red on that screenshot. Could confuse some people. Might be worth coding in a statement to stop red from appearing as orange and vice versa.

Ok heres a 2.0 beta 3 public compatible version with some other tweaks.

Eliana, i've made the colors bold, which should hopefully make the colors more readable.

1.2 - 18th March 2008
o Fixed for tabindex
o Changed to Show colors + equation in bold (for better reading)
o Improved my random input field generator
o Increased size on input box by adding size="30"
o Fixed align/valign issue affecting w3c xhtml 1.0 validity
o Tweaked to get it to work for SMF 2.0 Beta 3 Public

Hi Karl,

Another great mod! Many thanks, Neil.

xrunner

I have this mod and the "are you human" mod installed. Now, I can't uninstall either one (using default theme). How can I proceed to uninstall these and install the newer versions?

Errors -

1.     Execute Modification     ./Sources/Register.php     Test failed
2.    Execute Modification    ./Themes/default/Register.template.php    Test failed

Eliana Tamerin

I've already mentioned this to Karl and he should be aware of it. Although I haven't heard of both not uninstalling. Do you have any other mods that affect the Register.template.php file installed? These might include the Invite/Referral mod, Anti-Bot Clock, Gender on Registration, Avatar on Registration, etc.

No.

karlbenson

You'll have to uninstall in descending order that you installed them. (most recent first).

For me it uninstalls, installs perfectly everytime, the only thing i can think is that another mod has modified the same file afterwards.

xrunner

I just tried each one independently on a test forum. Each one uninstalls OK IF the other isn't installed.
