hey guys...so far the new upgrade to 2.0RC5 has been easy and awesome! however, we are learning that people trying to register with our site are note getting the verification code at all...then they try to listen to it and hear nothing-so they fail to register. ive checked everything out and noticed i dont get the "sample" in the admin where i turned this on. some folks are able to register...but just a couple compared to the many being denied.

my site http://carolinadiesels.com

only mods are simple portal/avea media/ and Crip's Black n Black theme

When I right-click on the verification image text and choose "View Image", Firefox says that the image couldn't be displayed because "it contains errors". It could be that it's timing out while trying to generate the image. The sound works fine for me though, but it takes a little while to load.

Are there any errors in your forum error log related to registration and the verification image?

If not, you may want to try ReCaptcha instead.

i dont even see the image?? i tried to register as a test...but no image and i didnt get a sound either. i looked at recaptcha but it looks like it only goes up to 2.0RC3

anyone have any other thoughts on this please??

Did you checked all files with file_check.php? reCaptacha will work on SMF 2.0 RC5.

Place this file in the forum root.

Run it by writing into the address bar www.yourdomain.com/file_check.php

You will see in what files you have to fix errors.

It's very simple. Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and—as it always has—rock crushes scissors.

You probably have a blank line at the end of the file. I also had the same problem some time ago. When I started file_check I got the same result as you. I just deleted the blank line at the end of the file and the code started working.
It's very simple. Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and—as it always has—rock crushes scissors.

Well that would explain the 'does not end in ?>' comments but for does not begin with <?php, that generally means the files got re-encoded badly somewhere along the line. Open them in a decent text editor (not Notepad or Wordpad, something like Notepad++) and take a look. If they're listed as encoded in UTF-8, make sure it's 'converted to UTF-8 Without BOM' - that's an option in Notepad++.

im sorry, i dont even understand this, i also looked at the index.php files listed as missing something and ....believe it or not there was nothing in the index.php files...all 3 of them...whats that about???

Those three in the aeva folder, they're fine and can be ignored. The whole point is simply to prevent someone going in and looking at the list of files.

i thought i was suppose to post the results for those to see and help fix...ill be removing that file so no one can go in and see it now.

but even though it says files are missing this and that....they arent-those files have the codes there...so why does it say they are still missing?
"I'm not as Think, as you stoned I am"

Arantor

No... you asked what the point of the empty index.php files is. That's the point: if someone tries to view that folder, they won't be able to because of the index.php blocking it.

btt...i cant keep my forum open or vulnerable to spammers and such. right now i have the verification code removed so members can sign up. i still need this fixed.

also i asked about recaptcha...its not a zip file(its a tar.gz) what is it and how do i install it??

Same as you install a zip, it's the exact same thing. You can use the Packages area of the admin panel to do it for you, or go to the mod's page, select the version of SMF (I think for the moment you have to use 2.0 RC4) then hit Parse to see the list of changes.


So, we've discounted those three files, did you try fixing the others?

i didnt do  anything with any files yet...i guess i should try to remove the "white spaces". all the files had what it said was missing-which i dont understand why it says things are missing. seems like a lot of ppl are having this same problem with the verification code....and also...I dont even understand any of that UTF8 or whatever that is that was recommended. thanks,Chuck

as for recaptcha, it looks like some document instead of a zip file...and i tried it one time through PM and it didnt recognize that type of file.

Package manager does just fine as .tar.gz files; I bundle all mine up as that these days... but nothing will happen until the files get fixed.
