Thanks a lot, Paul 999. I have just installed the mod and it is working perfect :-) I am also using the visual confirmation for guests´post and so it appears there, too. And it also looks smart, more trendy than the previous grey one ;-) So keep up the work and looking forward for another MOD from you!

Captcha - visual confirmation: like the code XC25KU8 you see when registering to a forum.

I suggest you change the name of the topic so that it is clear for everybody. For non-English speakers and people not advanced in phpBB it might be unclear what it is all about.

instal.xml?
modx.subsilver.en.xsl?
GD extension loaded?
Why is this Mod so different than what is customary here?
How do I read your files?

Is there any difference from the BETA 1.0.1 version of this mod ? Or is there no need to re-install this mod.

Coyote23, all right, the way the MOD is distributed is different. If you are used to the traditional way of handling the MODs, just read the install.mod file in the contrib directory. (Or for a smarter way of handling this, alternatively open the install.xml file in your browser - the information there is the same.) All installation is then only editting one line in profile.php and copying a few new files from root/includes directory to your host.

I did not care about the GD extension. I knew I could not do much about it ;-) And it worked, so it was probably there on the host.

@Kotek, GD extension is on most hosts installed, so for most people there is no problem.

Hi, I installed this mod, but it doesnt seem to have worked. I checked that GD is enabled on my host, which it is, any idea what could have gone wrong? its still using the old captcha.

The forum is at www.positech.co.uk/forums
