Your style is out of date, you need to update it to the 3.0.7-PL1 version (3.0.7)

Does it work in prosilver ok?

As a test, OPEN includes/captca/plugins/phpbb_captcha_gd_plugin.php

FIND:

Code: Select all

 $instance =& new phpbb_captcha_gd();
REPLACE WITH:

Code: Select all

 $instance = new phpbb_captcha_gd();
Then purge the cache in the ACP.

Also, Recaptcha and Q&A captcha will be grayed out until they are configured.

that, plus making the same change in phpbb_recaptcha_plugin.php ,phpbb_captcha_qa_plugin.php, and phpbb_captcha_nogd_plugin did the trick!

thanks!

And thanks from me. I was having the same problem. Took that little rogue ampersand out of all the includes/captca/plugins/xxx files and we're all healed up.
