CAPTCHA Requirements
To be able to use the Coloured CAPTCHA, your PHP server requires PHP 4.3.0 and GD Library 2.0.1 or later. For the Image based CAPTCHA, your PHP server requires GD Library 1.6 or later to support PNG.
The GD2 Library requires "Freetype Support" installed for TTF's to be displayed. If "Freetype Support" is not present, the CAPTCHA should display a PHP standard Font.

Bug Fixes
When installing, please refer to the following document for fixes made to the mod since submission and during development before requesting support, thanks:

Hi... congratulations and many thanks... Have a query, is it possible to increase the number of characters allowed in the comments field... Can anyone guide me on how to do the same... Have installed this mod and find it great but I need more than 255 characters or rather unlimited amount of words to be allowed. Can anyone guide on where to specify those parameters...

Cheers
isaac

ACP » General Admin » Contact Form
Maximum Characters
You can set an upper limit as to how many characters can be in a message. Set to '0' to disable this option.
Glad you like the mod. :)

It's already active when installed - there should be a link to it in the header (on subSilver, by default), and config options are in ACP > Genral Admin > Contact Form. :)

...
I have installed Easy Contact Form in my board and it works excellent.
Well, good for you - please don't post links to OTHER mods, this is not the relevant topic to post them.

FYI, my mod does a LOT more - File uploads, a better Captcha, Flood protection, Thank the sender, message Logging, File uploads management. But if you haven't tried it, how can you know? :roll:

And it is Easy level - there are only 6 files to edit, slightly.. if you take the time!

The mod works great for me, but the Captcha is not present for some reason . . . does anyone have any suggestions?
