Custom Image for use with Anti-Spam Verification Questions

Following on from a tip shared by Sir Osis of Liver this mod has been created to enable Admins to use a custom image for the anti-spam verification questions that are created via Administration Center >> Security and Moderation >> Anti-Spam.  The custom image will be displayed everywhere verification is required (eg, registration, guest searches, guest posting, guest reporting posts, etc).

Suggestion: Save the image you want to use to the forum's 'images' folder.

This mod also includes some safeguards just in case the verification image cannot be accessed via the supplied URL and/or if the verification image cannot be seen on the pages on which it is displayed:
1.  A message will be displayed in the Admin Center if the verification image URL is not valid; and
2.  On the pages on which the verification image is displayed a link to contact the webmaster is provided if the verification image cannot be seen.

Also, and even though the verification image size is displayed at a maximum pixel resolution of 300x300 on the registration page, the full-sized version of the image will be displayed in a new window/tab by clicking on it.
