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??

BTT...anyone have any thoughts? will the Recaptcha work on 2.0RC5??

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.

i just dont get it! ive looked at all the files that i can find...and everything is there! everything before and after...and i dont see excessive "white space"

so why is it, when i search...i find almost everyone running 2.0RC5-the verification is not working and everyone suggest recaptcha, when it wont let me even install the package?




captcha works on default(of coarse ::) )
"I'm not as Think, as you stoned I am"

Arantor

Because the package hasn't been officially updated for 2.0 RC5. You might be able to install it via Admin > Packages > Browse Packages > Advanced.

In any case, what editor are you using to look for empty space before <?php or after ?> in the files?

i just used filezilla, found the file...then "viewed" and it showed me what was in the files...did i do that wrong?

FileZilla isn't as thorough as some other tools for looking at stuff like that. Download the files and upload them here and I'll take a look at them for you.

well dayum...it installed recaptcha, but now it seems...no one can get past it now. i know i put the correct code in but it gives me an error
"I'm not as Think, as you stoned I am"

Arantor

That implies the reCAPTCHA API key isn't right.

ive tried 2 sets of keys, and still not working! my domain is right carolinadiesels.com ,did not select (global for all domains) tried the 1st set, then deleted those and created another set...still nothing working

Hmm, you should probably direct issues with the mod to the mod's dedicated thread (see Support and comments for this mod, from the reCAPTCHA mod page)

i installed the recaptcha mod and it doesnt work,

is there anyway to make the smf captcha work with my theme? the smf captcha works in default but not theme we are using. right now, i have to rely on the verification question as my only defense,thanks
"I'm not as Think, as you stoned I am"

Arantor

The verification question is actually a better defence than the CAPTCHA is anyway...

if the recaptcha only goes to 2.0 RC3 then maybe my step by step might help

try that

SlammedDime

Well the problem you are originally having is because there is an extra space in one of your files somewhere causing an issue... if you view the HTML source of your rendered page you can see it at the very top... that one little space can cause AJAX and verification image issues.

Please use the file_check.php utility and post back the results of the scan before you modify anything...

ill try the file check again when i get home

i was going to uninstall the recaptcha and try it again with aidyUK suggested...but i only have (list files)(delete) options...no unistall. its already installed...its listed in the admin>antispam>recaptcha

i did the emulate for the install, cant confirm if i "reverted back" right after the install tho

if i delete the recaptcha...will it actually uninstall it or mess things up?


I will do the file check 1st...then go from there

if you had to emulate to get it installed, you will need to emulate that version to uninstall it.

Try using the standard SMF Captcha now that you've deleted those spaces and see if it works.

If SMF's captcha + verification questions keeps the bots out, I'd stick with that and remove reCaptcha.

SMF never had reCaptcha, it has always had it's own variant (aptly called 'Visual Verification')
